A group of camp counselors are stalked by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child's drowning.
One of the longest-running horror film series began with this gory shocker from director Sean S. Cunningham, who had previously produced Wes Craven's classic Last House on the Left. Entrepreneur Steve Christie (Peter Brouwer) re-opens Camp Crystal Lake after many years during which it has been cursed by murders and bad luck. Cunningham's tense direction, and some remarkable special-effects by acclaimed makeup artist Tom Savini have seen this film firmly cemented in the pantheon of classic horror films and scared generations of camp goers around the world.
US, 1980, 91 min., Dir. Sean S Cunningham
