Summer may be over, but camp is just getting started. October is a time for binging your favorite horror flicks just in time for #Halloween, and slasher films will be in vast supply through the wonderful world of video streaming services. With horror movie's peaking in the #80s, it's no surprise that slasher film remakes seem to be the latest horror trend.

Let's See How Much You Really Know About Friday The 13th
What was the original title for "Friday the 13th"?
Victor Miller's working title for the film was Long Night at Camp Blood. The script was requested so that the studio could benefit from the success of Halloween.
The iconic musical score uses what repetitive sounds?
The intention was for the sound to mimic Jason telling his mother to kill.
How Many "Friday the 13th" movies did Freddy Krueger appear in?
Freddy appeared in Freddy vs. Jason (2003), nearly 15 years after his first cameo in Jason Goes to Hell (1993) when his glove grabs Jason's mask at the end, pulling it into Hell while Freddy laughs.
What year was the first "Friday the 13th" released?
Friday the 13th was released in between Halloween (1978) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
How many times is the date mentioned in the original film?
After realizing that the date was never mentioned in the movie, a line was added for a side character to say, "It's a full moon and a Friday the 13th" in an effort to make the title make sense. In the 2009 remake, the date only appears on a newspaper briefly.
What mask did Jason wear prior to his legendary hockey mask?
Jason wore a burlap sack in Friday the 13th Part 2, and finally donned the hockey mask in Friday the 13th Part III. In the 2009 remake, both masks were used.

The year that Jason drowned in the lake, was the same year that this fellow slasher was born?
Michael Myers was born October 19th, 1957, Jason drowned at camp in 1957 as well
In the 2009 remake, how did Jason seemingly pop up at every turn?
Mark Swift felt that there needed to be an explanation as to how quickly Jason could appear from one place to another.
How many times was the killer someone other than Jason during the franchise?
It should come as no surprise that Pamela Voorhees was the killer in the debut film, but Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning also had someone other than Jason as the killer, even though he still appeared during dream sequences.
