Great Moments in Movie History Using Stick Figures: Friday the 13th (1980)

It’s time yet again for my oldest recurring feature- Great Moments in Movie History Using Stick Figures. This time, we’ll take a look at the Friday the 13th franchise. When there are 12 films in a series, including one where the franchise’s supernatural lake monster slasher ends up in outer space, there are bound to be a lot of memorable moments. Rather than messing around with the eleven sequels, I’ve opted to stick to the basics by illustrating the most memorable part of the original film. Enjoy!

    Hard to believe there’s been twelve of them!

    Hope 13 comes out on Friday 13th 2013 at 13:13

  2. The guy who met Kevin Meany

    The Friday the 13th franchise was most successful when he wasn’t just killing random people but when there was a protagonist you could follow who served as Jason’s nemisis. I believe that was the case in part 4, 5, and 6 when a guy named Tommy Jarvis tried to stop him. Technically, Jason wasn’t in Part V: A New Beginning either. It was a fake Jason.

  3. Yep, that was memorable. I saw Friday 13th for 1st time this month, and while teen slasher was new in late 70s/early 80s , I couldn’t see anything amazing about it, that hasn’t been done in 100 other movies since then. That’s not the filmmakers fault, but just the movie buisness has drained the premise to cliché. Probably works as nostalgia and for teens.

    • I’ve gone back and watched a lot of those late 70s/early 80s slasher films, and generally been pleasantly surprised by most of them. But I was disappointed with Friday the 13th. Admittedly, part of that’s on me- I had high expectations.
