It's Friday The 13th, So Get The First 8 Movies For $13 In The US
Time for a blood-soaked movie marathon.
Have you heard? It's Friday the 13th weekend, which means you're almost contractually obligated to indulge in a horror movie marathon tonight. The people at Microsoft would like to lend you a hand--or a machete, as the case may be. This weekend, you can buy Friday the 13th parts 1 - 8 for $13 on the Microsoft Store. Hurry, though, because the deal ends Sunday.
It's a particularly good bargain, considering that the collection normally costs $104. To watch the movies, you'll need a device that lets you log into your Microsoft account. That means you'll need something like an Xbox One, computer, tablet, or phone. If you prefer using Vudu, you can buy the same set of movies for $20 here.
The movies, which came out between 1980 and 1989, have their ups and downs in terms of quality. Not that that really matters, since half the enjoyment of marathoning the franchise is poking fun at the hopelessly dated parts that are laughable today.
Even so, it's always fun to get friends together to watch the masked killer cut down groups of teenagers before supposedly dying, only to come back in the sequel. We've even ranked each Friday the 13th film by kill count.
If binge-watching these movies inspires you to play the game, read our Friday the 13th review before you dive in. Just note that it's received a number of updates and expansions since it launched last summer.
