Quick Cuts Episode 010: Celebrating Friday the 13th

Genre Exposure: A Film Podcast

Oct 13 2023 • 2 hrs 47 mins

In this special super-sized bonus episode of Genre Exposure, we used the occasion of an October set Friday the 13th to discuss at exhaustive length the titular franchise. From favorite kills to the coolest incarnation of Jason Voorhees, we spill our guts and geek out over our deep love for Friday the 13th. Nothing fancy and we're not trying to reinvent the wheel and give some analysis you've never heard before. Just two horror nerds gushing our hearts out in a more casual chat guided only by a handful of topics we selected in advance to guide discussion. And of course we throw down the gauntlet and take to the battlefield with our own rankings of the series as well. So from all of us at Genre Exposure, we wish you an enjoyable Friday the 13th and hope that, like us, you get the chance to spend at least part of it revisiting Camp Crystal Lake and the legend of Jason Voorhees one more time. And so much more!
