The original Friday The 13th was released 35 years ago today on May 9th, 1980. I saw it on Friday June 13th, 1980…the day it takes place…at the long gone Rialto Theater in Ridgefield Park,N.J. It is now considered a horror classic and has spawned 10 sequels and 1 reboot and given us a horror icon in Jason…though his mom was the killer in this first installment. Happy Anniversary to a classic!
