Memorable Friday The 13th Scenes Of Struggle
It's a tradition in slasher horror cinema to see the protagonist struggling to survive from the onslaught of a killer. Scenes of the protagonist running away, hiding, fighting back or doing things unexpectedly have been played out a lot through the decades.
Even with all of the slasher movies released, I honestly can say that the protagonist-versus-killer struggle in the first three Friday the 13th films are still worth watching again. So take a look back with the videos below.
Friday the 13th (1980)
What I like about this scene from 1980's Friday the 13th is the clever use of the first-person view (seeing what the character sees) in key moments of the struggle between Alice (Adrienne King) and Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer) which really delivered that in-your-face touch. They also added to the tension (just look at Alice's very scared face).
Friday the 13th Part 2
In Friday the 13th Part 2, there's the nice capture of the feet of Jason Voorhees stepping and searching around until Ginny (Amy Steel) is seen hiding. The view added some depth to the suspense. Oh yes, Ginny's struggle with Jason has that nice raw feel when it was executed. You can clearly see Amy Steel exerting effort with the chainsaw and the chair.
Friday the 13th Part 3
For Friday the 13th Part 3, Dana Kimmell as Chris was memorable in her scene with Jason. The energy, emotion and freaking out explain why her character eventually ended up crazed.
Thanks to the technological advancement in video, we can view these classic struggle scenes in high-definition. Watch and enjoy.
