Movie Has a Woman Killer and a Woman Heroine


Insanely woke for 1980. Portraying women as both evil and good is like an explosion of wokeness.

Great film regardless.

Yeah. And funnilly enough quite a few of the sequels had female survivors as well.

That’s pretty common for the genre.

As Halloween (1978) went with the same old cliche of "straight white male killer" with Michael Myers, Sean S. Cunningham decided to "go woke" with Friday the 13th in 1980 and have a female be the killer while simultaneously having another female lead character killing the female killer. The men did not survive and were all killed by an old woman. So woke I can't even see anymore.

Go woke, go broke. Enjoy making zero profits, F13th Franchise, you stupid idiot!

Sean S. Cunningham's net worth is $20 million. Very woke, indeed.

I didn’t mean to reply directly to you.
