Friday the 13th: From Worst to Best

I think I've made it clear that I really like the Friday the 13th movies. There are twelve of these movies, with a thirteenth slated to come out next year and while they get a bad rap for being schlocky tits-and-goreĀ horror movies (spoilers: they are 100% unapologetic...

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989)
