FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)

In the first episode of How to Survive, Chris and Joe review the original Friday the 13th, then discuss how they would survive the events at Camp Crystal Lake.

 

Despite having a questionable script, two-dimensional characters, and a plot which is both predictable and incoherent, Friday the 13th remains the quintessential horror movie - and the original slasher film.

 

We talk about all the highs and lows of this classic movie, including the incredible feats of strength employed by an old lady; a slew of tragically preventable bad decisions; a criminal amount of time dedicated to vehicle manouveres, and the most important question of all:

 

How would you survive?

 

Whatever happens, one things for sure...

 

We'll be laughing about this tomorrow, I promise.

 

Another classic film solved by the best movie podcast in the world.
