One of the first horror flicks I really came to love. Especially how Jason looked and was handled in it. And it made me a massive Nightmare and Freddy fan, where I even caught the original at a midnight movie a decade-ish ago.

I remember I watched The Nightmare on Elm Street Movies, and one of the Jason movies (I don't remember the title), and although I barely saw any of the Jason movie, unlike the The Nightmare on Elm Street Movies, I'll want to watch this movie later. I haven't already watched it that's why.
Yeah, watching it the other night, it definitely looked outdated, but the nostalgia made up for it. Used to hate this movie, but over the years have really grown to love it. The wife does not share my opinion, lol. But, she watched it.

This film was the greatest thing i had ever seen or heard of when it came out. I rented this film more times than i should admit... but im terrified to watch it again because i don't think it will live up to how great i remember it being.

I think there are some horror fans that take the film too seriously - and you can't; you just can't. It really is a joy start to finish and you've got watch it with that in mind - a pure entertainment film with Freddy drop-kicking and dropping elbows like a WWE wrestler! It deliberately has the clichés - the woman at the lake topless, the stereotypical annoying teens, token reefer dude, all of those were deliberate choices.
I've been a Freddy fan all my life (of 42 years) and apart from some of the later movies (Five, remake), I always will be.
Life long fan of dinosaurs, Transformers, horror and the Roman Empire.
