Friday the 13th: The Series

Show Summary

This series revolved initially around the adventures of two cousins, Ryan Dallion and Micki Foster, who inherited an antique shop, "Curious Goods," from their Uncle Vendredi. We find out in the first episode that Vendredi made a pact with the Devil, to sell cursed antiques. He recanted at the last minute and tried to recover the antiques, but was claimed by Hell. The cousins, aided by Vendredi's partner Jack Marshak, used the store's manifest to track down the cursed antiques, each of which fell into the hands of someone who inevitably used them for evil. In the third season, Ryan was turned into a child and Johnny Ventura, a street punk who had helped them occasionally, took his place.

  • Small group in search of evil items that can steal your soul.

    This has to be the show with the most evil aura, ambience, feeling, bouquet, call it what you will, it was demonic. I never felt like this ever watching a tv show, the demonic intervention as i call it, makes everything look overrated but you are no longer watching it, the devil has you and now you are under his command. The stories are great, possesed by the devil items give you something special, but they also require that you eother kill someone to recharge its power or that the item does something evil. There was never a bad episode, because they were all edited by satan himself. I used ot watch this when my mother was home or else i would simply flip the channel, that was the kind of fear this produced in me.



    Excellent show.moreless
  • Still creepy after all these years

    7.5
    After having the opportunity to watch this show a little online, it is surprisingly still very creepy in spite of the cheesy 80's goodness. The plot & premise are very unusual and often scary in spite of the campy horror effects & the fact that its not really clear how the people know how to use the cursed antiques in the first place. You have to use a bit of belief suspension or disbelief, as it were. A guilty pleasure to watch when you're feeling retro and longing for a good 80's horror flick fix. As soon as you see Mickey's hair & shoulder pads, it will all come rushing back with perfect clarity.moreless
  • I want more shows like this to be made.

    This show brings back memories. I loved it. I remember being in middle school. It didn't seem like it was 3 seasons. And then it was gone-like so many of it's kind. The series always ends so abruptly. I haven't seen this show for over a decade & then saw it airing on SciFi. I'm hoping I get to see the whole series. They seem to only be playing it 1 day a week during work hours. Guess I need consider getting some sort of DVR. All in all, I think it is a neat concept & should be revisited.moreless
  • This show should be on Dvd soon. Im looking forward to it. To make along story short. A uncle of curious goods makes a deal with the devil and tries to undo it at the end. And goes straight to hell. Two young cousins take over not knowing whats going on.moreless

    From the start I watched most of these episodes. I only missed a handful. I was a die hard fan. I even watched the repeats. Once in awhile they used to show it on the Sci-Fi channel. Returning cursed objects of any kind back to the shop. Im really suprised this show wasnt on for along time. It could of been so much more. And im thinking maybe they could of ended it to. On a great note. Tv shows come and go. This one still echoes in the back of my mind. I hope to hell one day this may come back. It would be great and im sure there would be alot of fans wanting this to. Time will only tell and I will enjoy the Dvds when there out.moreless
  • Friday the 13th was a great series of its time.

    8.6
    Although it was over before I was born, I still get to see repeats on the Scream channel. A very different show, indeed, Horror show, almost like The Hitchhiker. Both very interesting horror tv series. I usually watch this show either when I wake up in the morning or very late at night on the weekends. Some of the stories are both creepy & sad at the same time.



    I know this series doesn't really have anything to do with the movies but there is a little resemblance. Both deal with serial killers. And both amazing as well. I am never going to forget this show. It's a classic!moreless
  • IT'S FEBRUARY, AND ROMANCE IS IN THE AIR, SO CURL UP WITH SOMEONE SPECIAL TO WATCH THE STEAMY "MELROSE PLACE: THE FIFTH SEASON, VOLUME ONE" OR THE CHARMING " WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE VOLUME TWO: SUPERNATURALLY STYLIN' ". IF THE IDEA OF TEDDY BEARS AND PINK HEARTS MAKES YOU WANT TO RUN IN THE OTHER DIRECTION, ENJOY "FRIDAY THE 13TH THE SERIES: THE SECOND SEASON" OR "TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE: THE FIRST SEASON". WHATEVER YOUR PLEASURE, THERE'S SOMETHING SURE TO PLEASE IN THIS MONTHS NEW DVD RELEASES.
