Louise Robey (always credited as Robey) was the actress who appeared in most of the episodes of the series. There were totally 70 episodes produced and Micki Foster appears in all of them, the only exception being "The Butcher" during the second season. See more »

I loved this series back in the days when syndicated programming ruled my weekend schedule. Now, it's all infomercials. This program was one of my favorites. It was about an antique store and the curses and supernatural that they would uncover along the way. I have to say it was well-written and acted by a great cast. It was filmed in Toronto. I don't think they ever meant to set it anywhere in particular. I just only saw the drama for the seasons it was on the air in New Jersey. It was a series that probably inspired X-Files. Even though it's title says Friday the 13th, it was about mystery, supernatural, hauntings, and paranormal activities. The drama was always worth watching. I hope they bring out on DVD.
