Here’s the info on 80s Horror Memories: It’s been over 40 years that the decade that shaped the horror movie industry began and having lived through most of those years personally, we at JoBlo/Arrow in the Head have decided to create a 10-part documentary series in which not only cover every nook and cranny of the biggest horror themes from 1980 to 1989 but also what was happening in the world at the time. Join us as we walk down Horror Memory Lane!

And here’s the info on this particular episode: On this week’s episode, pack your bags because JoBlo and Arrow in the Head are taking you to camp. Enjoy the lovely cabins and breath-taking scenery. Most of all, try to survive the night in the Mother of slasher films. You’re all doomed.

The Friday the 13th episode of 80s Horror Memories was written by Mike Conway, narrated by Tyler Nichols, edited by Mike Conway, produced by Berge Garabedian and John Fallon, co-produced by Mike Conway and Adam Walton, and executive produced by Berge Garabedian.
