There are some folks out there¬†–¬†superstitious types, mostly – that will tell you today is an unlucky day. Aside from the movie franchise, I’m not really sure why I’m supposed to fear Friday the 13th; Does the unluckiness stick around for the whole weekend? I’m not really sure; do we find out after all this time that there is some metaphysical barrier between business days in regards to luck? Does bad luck have a schedule just like us? Again, I’m not sure, due in part to the fact that I’m not a metaphysicist.

Still, getting murdered by a nightmare creature can often be regarded as an absence of good or even just marginal luck. And a bunch of people decided to make a bunch of movies based on this premise. You may find yourself watching one of these today if that’s your thing or the thing of someone you know. As shown in the triumvirate of frames here, your age may impact your viewing experience. I can’t speak for anyone else here, so here’s how it’d go should you choose me to be your cinematic viewing companion.
