Friday The 13TH

.


It's been more than a quarter-century since Friday the 13th hit theaters. Frank Mancuso Jr., who produced many films in the series, said the movies were "deliberately conceived to be viewed in a theater with other people. These films ... function best in a situation that calls for a collective, visceral repsonse." Umm... these were the buckets-of-blood, hatchet-in-the-forehead movies, right? Anyway, see how much you know about Jason and his doting, homicidal mom by answering the 13 questions in this quiz. And don't go out in a boat alone. Ever.

And the correct answers.

Question 1
True or False: Friday the 13th premiered in the United States on Friday, June 13, 1980.

Correct answer: cook

Question 3
Including the latest, 2003's Freddy vs. Jason, how many Friday the 13th films have been released to-date?

Question 4
What film beat out Friday the 13th to win the first "Worst Film" Razzie Award ever given?
Correct answer: Can't Stop the Music (Yes, it took the Village People to make a film bad enough to win the award over the competition.)

How many persons did Jason kill in the original Friday the 13th film?
Correct answer: none (Jason wasn't responsible for any of the 11 deaths that occurred in the first film.)

Question 6
How many persons has Jason killed since the original Friday the 13th film?
Correct answer:146 (That's quite a body count for a guy who's been dead himself since 1957.)

Question 7
True or False: Adrienne King, who played Alice Hardy (the only survivor) in the original film, quit acting after a brief appearance in Friday the 13th, Part 2 due to an all-too-real fear: being stalked by an obsessive fan.
Correct answer: True

Question 8

Question 9
Which of these "slasher" films was released prior to Friday the 13th?
Correct answer: Halloween (1978)

True or False: Jason didn't acquire his signature hockey mask until Friday the 13th, Part 3.
Correct answer: True (The film was shot in 3D and originally released to theaters in that format.)

Question 11
The fourth film in the Friday the 13th series was subtitled:
Correct answer: The Final Chapter


Question 12
Which of the following had a role in the original Friday the 13th film?

Correct answer: Kevin Bacon (So, yes, everyone appearing in Friday the 13th has a Bacon number of 1.)

Question 13
Finally, if you don't watch Friday the 13th this Friday (April 13), how long will you have to wait until you get the chance to see it again on a Friday the 13th?
Correct answer: three months (July 2007 is the next month with a Friday the 13th; the next after that is June 2008.)
