Swimming it’s way to number 5 on our list of the best films to watch on Valentine’s Day is Friday the 13th.
While not about relationship love, Friday the 13th deals with the love between a child and parent. After Pamela Voorhees’ son drowns, the former Crystal Lake cook comes back to make everyone close to the place pay. Pamela almost takes about the whole gang in the 1980 film but she’s stopped by the resilient Alice in an epic battle on the beach.
As a young man, a boy’s first interaction with a female is his mother. It’s here where a young man learns how to interact with the opposite sex. Sadly for Crystal Lake, Jason loves his mother to death and spends the next nine or ten films avenging her death. And if that’s not love, I don’t know what is.
