Test Prepper

After an unintentional absence,  Test Prep is back. This entry is about the original Friday the 13th (1980). I was surprised to enjoy the film after a recent viewing.

Once I hit page nine, I realized I was only about halfway through the argument I was setting out involving Northrop Frye’s commentary on genre and comedy and the arguments about how conservative or liberal slasher pics are. It’s roughly 1500 words now, less than half the original.  I hope to continue it later.

Tomorrow’s Terror Test tackles Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood and Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.

The guys are taking a tour of horror around the world this year and the first stop will be Australia in two weeks.
