Friday the 13th 2009 Out Earned 1980’s Original (But Was Less Successful)

Thus, not only does inflation account for Friday the 13th’s seemingly smaller 1980 gross, but the original movie’s much lower budget made its profit margins massive. None of the sequels were able to reproduce this smash-hit success, largely because none of them were able to surprise viewers as effectively. By the time Freddy Vs Jason’s long-awaited crossover offered something new for viewers, the franchise had to split its profits with a rival slasher series. In contrast, 1980’s original Friday the 13th got by with just an ingenious ad campaign that revealed almost nothing about the movie in its early trailers and enigmatic posters, meaning many viewers only knew that the mysterious release was some sort of horror movie when they bought a ticket.

As a result, every Friday the 13th sequel inevitably saw the franchise’s premise become more and more familiar to audiences. While this did earn the series a lot of loyal viewers, it also made each subsequent Friday the 13th movie more niche in terms of audience interest. The original was suitable for anyone who wanted a mysterious horror, the second was strictly for slasher fans, and Jason’s underrated third outing, Friday the 13th was specifically for fans who wanted slashers set in abandoned summer camps with inventive kills and a dark sense of humor. This increasing niche appeal resulted in the Friday the 13th franchise never recreating the heights of the original movie’s box office success, despite 2009’s remake putting up an impressive display.
