Movie Reviews Friday The 13th

Critics generally have their knives out for horror films. Friday the 13th is no exception. Not that anyone who buys a ticket to see those movies give a spit about what critics have to say about them. Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times begins his review by remarking " Friday the 13th is about the best Friday the 13th movie you could hope for. Its technical credits are excellent. It has a lot of scary and gruesome killings. Not a whole lot of acting is required. If that's what you want to find out, you can stop reading." (He then goes on to gut the film, concluding with this afternote "In my research, I discovered that the scientific name for fear of Friday the 13th is paraskavedekatriaphobia. I envision a new franchise Paraskavedekatriaphobia A New Beginning, Paraskavedekatriaphobia Jason Lives, Paraskavedekatriaphobia Freddy's Nightmare, etc.") Other critics follow suit Claudia Puig in USA Today "This Friday is more like a rehash, delivering just what you expect and nothing more." Lisa Kennedy in the Denver Post "There's not a one 'I didn't see that coming' moment in this flick."
