Last week our visitors came out and supported their favorite writers on the franchise. The votes were spread out mainly for four writers, but in the end, there can be only one.

EXCLUSIVE: On Location Of Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, Part 1

When Friday the 13th: A New Beginning was released in 1985, there was a lot of interest and also much speculation to what the movie would be about as Jason was effectively killed in the previous movie, The Final Chapter.

Friday Conversation: Debating The Ending of Part 2

The most confusing ending in the Friday the 13th series came very early in the franchise. The ending of Part 2 has been debated and speculated about for close to 30 years. Did Paul die?
