While setting up for another summer at the newly reopened Camp Crystal Lake, a team of young camp councillors are terrorised by an unseen assailant – could it have anything to do with the little boy who drowned there, many years previously?

Friday the 13th is one of the real tent-pole slasher movies (pun intended) – it’s a template, a formula and a yard stick for the films that come after it. It doesn’t get much more iconic than this!
