Cunningham doesn't buy the whole "sinners must be punished" scenario that many slasher films seem to support. Instead he simply sees it as "bad things happening to good people for no apparent reason." See more »
(at around 2 mins) The close up shots of Claudette singing show her legs crossed, but the long shots show her legs spread apart. See more »
Ah hum, hey... I know what we can do. We're gonna play Monopoly...
I hate Monopoly!
Not the way I play it , you don't.
We're going to play Strip Monopoly. I'll be the shoe.
You have got to be kidding.
What if Steve walks in?
Uh, we'll give him a handicap:: he can keep his boots on; everything else goes. Now it's easy: instead of paying rent, you pay clothes. Bill can be Banker... Unless, of course he's chicken.

The first counselor killed in the 1958 prologue is named "Barry" in the credits. The captions identify him as "Gary". In the 2009 Deluxe Edition DVD and Blu-Ray copies, Claudette's dialog has been corrected to read, "Barry's out of bounds." See more »
In 1980, two years after "Halloween" scared the hell out of everybody, "Friday the 13th" was released to theaters. This was a clever knockoff of the John Carpenter horror classic, only this one was more violent and gruesome. That aspect turned critics off big time. But moviegoers couldn't resist. They flocked to see this movie and made it a big hit. I never saw this film on the big screen because I was only 9 years old when it came out. After I saw it on cable a few years later, it scared the hell out of me! It doesn't scare me that much today, but it's a far more effective horror/thriller than the last five movies in the series (parts 5 through 9). They should have stopped making these "Friday the 13th" movies after the fourth film, which was subtitled "The Final Chapter". And you know what's even scarier, they're making part 10. "Friday the 13th" was the beginning of the sick slasher genre that played out during the early 1980s. The first films in both the "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" series' were easily the best. "Halloween" was a great horror film. "Friday the 13th" isn't up there with "Halloween", but it's a well-crafted gorefest.
