Of course we're all familiar with the franchise,but this is just for the original movie itself.if you haven't seen it yet,stop reading now so it won't be spoiled.

We all know Jason is one of the all time greatest slashers,but it was Mrs.Voorhees,his mother who started it all.I saw it in the theater in 1980 and was impressed by the fact that the killer was a middle aged woman instead of a man,and it's a great revenge story.at the time the kills were considered critically acclaimed courtesy of Tom Savini. affraid

I've never really like the original, and I saw it before I even knew about Krueger, Jason or Myers. I watched it about 4 years back again and it still didn't appeal to me. I'm going to but the 2 disc SE, just because of what it is. Who knows, maybe after a re-watch I'll like it, wouldn't be the first time that's happened. I still highly respect it for what it did and influenced.

of course,Jason isn't the killer,but you have to appreciate it for what it is.I was 10 going on 11 when I saw it and I watched the story unfold.I had just seen Halloween and Phantasm,The Fog,The Shining-it all unfolded before my eyes...besides,Mrs.Voorhees is one of the the best! Twisted Evil

I saw it before I knew about Jason, so him not being in it isn't why I didn't like it. Like I said, I still appreciate it for what it's done for the genre.
