Welcome campers to our second pod of the Third Annual Harvest Horror Fest! Today the classic horror continues with one of Matt’s favorite horror films, yes Matt’s, Friday the 13th (1980). The boys stayed on point for most of the show but some extra topics include Halloween, gore in film, and horror films that scarred us for life.

Friday the 13th is an incredible film. It is not only a great horror flick but a great movie overall. The story is very creative, the cinematography is groundbreaking, and the make up, especially the gore, are great. The acting is very rough but it is definitely better than most of this franchise's numerous sequels. Friday the 13th inspired a whole new sub-genre of horror, the summer camp slasher. This is a must see film for anyone that loves movies especially horror film buffs. Mike awards the slasher a near perfect score of 4.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt with the rare underscore only gives Friday the 13th 4 out of 5 reels. He immediately regretted it but stuck to his decision.

Next Wednesday we continue our Third Annual Harvest Horror Fest with another Matt pick but Mike loves this one too, the 1980’s vampire comedy The Lost Boys (1987) starring Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, and of course the two Coreys.
