Friday The 13th: The Alternatives

2012 has been generous to Horror fans by giving us more than one Friday The 13th. If like me you already had you "F13" marathon this year you may fancy watching something different. 

Without straying from the "F13" theme here is a list of 13 camping, cabin and forest themed films that you can watch instead (To see the trailer for each film just click on the picture):

Wolf Creek

Stranded backpackers in remote Australia fall prey to a murderous bushman who offers to fix their car, then takes them captive.

A weekend of camping in the mountains becomes an excursion into hell for a young couple, who become pawns in a grotesque plot hatched by deranged locals.

High Tension

Two college friends, Marie and Alexa, encounter loads of trouble (and blood) while on vacation at Alexa's parents' country home when a mysterious killer invades their quiet getaway.

Sleepaway Camp
