This chapter considers discussions and categories for different forms of the eye/camera shot as they appear in the Friday the 13th series. First, there is an analysis of the criticism of the use of first-person camera shots in horror, and areas this criticism ignores. Then the chapter looks at eye/camera shots that use various approaches, from those that take on the qualities of seeing from the eye of a specific character, to examples where the viewer sees what looks like a shot from a specific point-of-view but works as misdirection, and other variations in between.

Keywords:   Eye/camera, Point of view, Sadism, First-person, 3-D camerawork
