Don’t wander into the woods today. And probably a good idea to avoid any sporting goods stores, too.
Yep, it’s Friday the 13th, an otherwise random day of the month we always associate with one thing: grisly, grisly murder by an unstoppable dude wearing a hockey mask.
Today isn’t just the unluckiest Friday this year (until next Friday, of course), it’s also the 35th anniversary of one of most iconic installments of one the greatest movie franchises in history. That’s right, way back in 1982 moviegoers were screaming their heads off in theaters as Jason Vorhees donned his hockey mask for the first time and began slashing sex-crazed teens in utterly terrible 3-D.
Tonight, Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson screens the iconic film in glorious two-dimension, which actually makes the movie that much more enjoyable because you can see all the gimmicky 3-D shots in their full-focus glory.
Take someone to hold your hand and see how quaint horror movies used to be before the days of human centipedes. Because this, dear readers, is when slasher flicks transitioned from summer camp to super campy.
Baby Jane levels of campy.
