‘Friday the 13th’ Synopsis
Death has cursed Camp Crystal Lake since 1957 when a young boy drowned there. The following year two summer camp counselors met an untimely demise after they skipped the campfire sing-along for some late-night bananas and cream. Life became altogether ooky after that.
Flash forward to the present day and an old codger’s looming omen against the very same camp’s reopening. He says everyone is doomed. Everyone! Minutes later, a young woman gets her throat slashed open. Gone are the good ole days when the worst that could happen was a thorough molestation by your counselor.
This mysterious killer quickly isolates and murders the counselors one by one. Blood flies everywhere, and when it doesn’t there is plenty of T & A flashed around to tide the viewer over until another stupid kid gets hacked in the face with an axe.read full summary
