A new episode of The arrow in the head Show has just made its way online, and in it hosts John “The Arrow” Fallon and Lance Vlcek look back at the 1980 classic Friday the 13th (see it HERE), the film that spawned one of the most popular horror franchises of all time! To hear what Lance and The Arrow had to say about this one, watch the video embedded above.
Directed by Sean S. Cunningham from a screenplay by Victor Miller, Friday the 13th has the following synopsis:
Crystal Lake’s history of murders isn’t deterring counselors from setting up a summer camp in the wooded area. Superstitious locals warn against it, but the fresh-faced young people – Jack, Alice, Bill, Marcie and Ned – don’t take much notice of the old. Then they are pursued by a brutal killer. As they are hacked, shot and stabbed, the counselors fight to stay alive against a merciless opponent.
The film stars Adrienne King, Harry Crosby, Jeannine Taylor, Laurie Bartram, Kevin Bacon, Mark Nelson, Robbie Morgan, Peter Brouwer, Rex Everhart, Ronn Carroll, Walt Gorney, Willie Adams, Debra S. Hayes, Sally Anne Golden, Ari Lehman, and Betsy Palmer. It also has some great effects by Tom Savini.
Here is some information about The arrow in the head Show:
We’re trying something a little new here at Arrow In The Head. After many years behind the scenes, we’ve decided to take our sarcastic, boozy style into the video age with That Arrow In The Head Show! Hosted by John Fallon, aka The Arrow and Lance Vlcek, we’ll dig into not only the latest horror movies to hit the big and small screens, but also delve into the good, bad and ugly of horror from the golden age of the 80s to and with understated 90s and maybe a little beyond.
Somewhat groovy and a little rough around the edges, we’re here to talk shop with a drink in hand, some foul language and a whole lot of heart.
This episode of the show was edited by Lance and it was written by The Arrow and Lance.
