Plot Summary: A group of Teenagers are being stalked and murdered by a mysterious figure, as they attempt to reopen an old Summer Camp with a tragic history.

Note: Surprise! On a whim to celebrate the infamous date of "bad luck", Witney (co-host of The B-Movies Podcast and film critic for Nerdist Industries) returns to examine the first film in the Slasher series that helped popularize the "Dead Teenager" genre. We discuss the film's legacy, the amazing practical effects and how this franchise has shaped the Horror genre, then and now. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD, and please support the podcast by clicking on the "Donate" button at the top of the homepage.
