If you think that the Friday the 13 movies are terrible, you should re-visit the original. The movie is a masterpiece. It - along with a few others - is the birth of the slasher flick. Definitely worth checking out. A must see.
I was really surprised at how great this book is. The writing is simple but the story isn't. The story is very smart, very well thought out and quite enjoyable. No wonder Harry Potter has become so famous!
