2020 may have seemed horrifying enough, and for the some who believe the superstition a Friday the 13th is the last thing we need. However, this November sees exactly that date land of a Friday, and that may prompt some to take part in their own watch of classic 1980 slasher Friday The 13th, or perhaps the whole series. Well, that’s exactly what I intend to do that day, and likely into the next one.
Feel free to join me over on the Just A Little Bit Random Twitch channel on Friday the 13th of November for a marathon watch party of the series. From Crystal Lake to Manhattan, from the depths of hell, up to space and back for the remake – with Freddy Vs Jason thrown in too. Having only ever seen the first and eighth films in the series this should prove interesting.
I won’t be able to stream/ show the films themselves on Twitch and it’s highly unlikely that there will be any guests, the certainty being that this is a completely stupid and useless thing to do. However, hopefully this can turn out to be something slightly successful, for however long it lasts (it tasks roughly just over 18 hours to get through all 12 films without any breaks), can provide some amusement, escape and conversation in chat.
The stream will hopefully start at around 10:15am (UK time) on Friday 13th November with the first film beginning at 10:30am. If you are interested in watching any of the films alongside the stream there are links to lists of where you can stream them, if you don’t own a physical copy, at the bottom of this post. Other than that, that’s about it feel free to check out what’s happening if this sounds like your sort of thing. I’ll try and find some ways to make the stream a bit more exciting and engaging when it comes around.
