This chapter considers the perspective of the viewer who comes into a serialized story. First, the chapter considers the ‘franchise viewer,’ or someone who has seen other films in the series. Second, the chapter looks at the ‘new viewer,’ or someone who has no familiarity with other films in the series. The chapter considers all the films in the series after the first Friday the 13th movie and how the information provided proves advantageous to either group of viewers. Finally, there is a discussion of the reboot from 2009, and the way it uses a style closely linked with nostalgia to provide a particular viewing experience for both sets of viewers.
