Review by Ken
2½ stars out of 4

For a series that spawned 8 sequels ( hell, not even the Police Academy movies made it that far), you'd be forgiven for expecting this first installment to be revolutionary or something. But like all the sequels that followed it, the first movie also sported bad acting and typical horror movie cliches; yet remains crucial viewing for die-hard slasher movie fans if only to see how the entire Friday franchise got started. Some highlights (besides the obligatory sex and violent murders) include seeing a much younger Kevin Bacon playing one of the teenagers destined to be hacked; as well as the interesting plot twist involving the killer's identity.
