40 years !?!?!? 😳😳😳

My God where did that time go... I remember queuing up with pals to see the first one...
That would have been fun. I remember watching the movies on TV as a kid over a Friday the 13th weekend, then we'd come back Monday and talk about the movies at school. That was probably in the early 90s.

I don't know that I agree with my post from fifteen+ years ago. :D I wouldn't say it led to the downfall of the slasher genre. The market just got crazy flooded during that time. Some things I like about the first movie is that the gore is used selectively and to some great effect. I don't know how many people have seen it, or what I should say in terms of something that could be considered a spoiler, but I think it would have been better if Betsy Palmer's character had been introduced earlier in the movie. In fact I watched the first part of the 8 part documentary last night, where she said the same thing in an interview. I wish the movie had been done a little more as a murder mystery. But of course Halloween had been done just a couple years before, and the killings are very random in it (even by the end of the movie the killings are still very random).

Anyhow, I like the movie, but I think it could have been better. Maybe I'll watch the rest of the movies soon. Outside of the box set with the first 8 movies, I also have Jason Goes to Hell, Jason X, and Freddy vs. Jason. ;D

Doug, I haven't seen all the movies on your list, but there's some good stuff on there.

.... but the film that had the biggest impact on me and my pals way back then was definitely Dawn of the Dead.. I remember leaving the cinema after seeing it and having to walk through a deserted shopping mall 😳😳 to get to the station and get home. Awesome movie that kinda left us
all speechless.... nothing was ever the same again after that one 😊

Sadly some shopping malls feel kind of deserted like that now (well, I mean before they all shut down due to the virus). Dawn of the Dead would have been a fun one to see at the theater too. I went to see the remake in 2004 and I liked it.
