Introducing A Newbie To The Friday The 13th Franchise

We are going to start a new feature on the website where every Friday a new discussion will be posted concerning numerous topics having to do with the Friday The 13th franchise. These posts will give our readers a chance to voice their opinions on these subjects and lead us to providing even better content for our readers.

Today's topic has always been an interesting one to discuss as it is different for every individual. For me, growing up with the Friday The 13th movies as they were being released in theaters in the 1980's and beyond was an exciting time and one I wish I could share with new fans. It was fun to know about the movies just by talking with friends, visiting the theaters and seeing the posters and displays, and reading Fangoria magazine. It was a fun time to be a fan, but what about now? How do you introduce a newbie to the films?

Personally, it would be probably be best to start from the beginning with Friday The 13th 1980 and watch them all the way through. If you have some old magazines and marketing materials, it would be cool to show a newbie these first before each film and really give them a feel for what it was like thirty years ago before watching the movies. Heck, I would even show them the original trailer before going into watching the films.

Doing these types of things could make for a much better experience of introduction. However, I know that today's generation may find the first few films a little too slow for their tastes, so would showing them Friday The 13th 2009 be a good jumping off point? Let us know how you would break a friend or family member into the franchise in the comments section below and see how the fans would introduce a friend or family member to the Friday The 13th franchise.
