Like so many industries, filmmakers are in a mad rush to get their ideas out to the public first. The Halloween franchise beat Friday the 13th to the screen by two years because June didn’t have a Friday the 13th until 1980—whereas every year has a Halloween. Granted, Sean Cunningham could have thrown up his hands and put out his film with any old crap in it, but it’s the precision of the details that make all the difference in these low-budget horror films.
