In celebration of the recent release of the Friday the 13th film collection on blu ray, we thought it was time to tackle this popular horror franchise on this, the 22nd episode of the Film Junk Premium Podcast. In an attempt to keep things a bit more manageable, we decided to skip Jason vs. Freddy and the 2009 remake/reboot in favour of focusing on the first 8 Paramount Pictures films along with Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X. While we were initially concerned that we’d struggle to find enough substance to talk about within the series, our fears were quickly quelled as we dug into the minutiae of the franchise in an attempt to finally settle some long standing debates. Shelly or Joey: who would you rather? What exactly are the rules of strip Monopoly? Is Friday the 13th the Police Academy of horror franchises? Join us on our three hour journey as we break down TEN Friday the 13th films and discuss whether or not this series is a classic or a dead fuck.
