A Friday without terror or thrills
27 March 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Was not entirely excited by the idea of the story (though with the right execution it may have worked in a moderate guilty pleasure way), with it being nothing new and with the fear nothing new would be brought to it. Coming across 'The 13th Friday' by chance and having an appreciation for horror, despite not expecting an awful lot the decision was made to view it with an open and fair mind.

'The 13th Friday' turned out to be one of those films that didn't really excite on paper but seen also as part of a low-budget horror quest on top of having appreciation for the genre, and didn't fare much better, in fact it fared even worse, in how it was executed. Do not take any pleasure criticising the film, but it didn't work for me at all in almost every aspect.

Some lighting was not bad and had some atmosphere, but that is for me the only praise that can be given. Especially when it was very difficult to appreciate, let alone enjoy, it properly when the editing especially was so confused and jumpy. Can definitely see the failed student film project comparison.

Audio is obvious and intrusive and although 'The 13th Friday' is not the director's first film it honestly feels like a woefully inexperienced under-budgeted directing effort.

One of the worst aspects was the acting, which is unspeakably dreadful all round. Especially from the lead actress, giving perhaps one of the worst performances ever. The script is horrendously stilted and the characters are not interesting or rootable at all.

Furthermore, there is no tension or suspense whatsoever. The film is far too dully paced and uneventful to be thrilling and is just too silly, jumpy and predictable to evoke any sense of terror. Some of it is not very easy to follow either.

In summary, no thrills or terror to be found with this Friday. 1/10 Bethany Cox
