Over at Alex on Film I’ve just finished up reviewing the Friday the 13th canon. I didn’t rewatch these movies all at once. Don’t think I could have taken it.
Fans like to rank these movies but looking back on them I don’t see how that’s possible. I guess the first one isn’t that bad. Betsy Palmer’s turn as Mrs. Voorhees is the (lone) series highlight for me. Some of the later entries had their moments, and they did try to change things up a bit as things went along, but still there’s not a lot here. And the 2009 reboot may have been the worst of them all.
