We asked KTDY listeners on Facebook which of the twelve (counting Freddy Vs. Jason) Friday The 13th movies is best to watch on Friday The 13th. The overwhelming response was that the best to watch is the original 1980 film. Ironically, while the series is best known for Jason Voorhees, the original film's killer is his mother, Mrs. Voorhees. The first movie is creepy in a way that none of the others are, so if you've never seen it, today's the perfect day to watch!
