Best Friday the 13th Movies

Which Jason pic do you think deserves top spot? List includes cross-overs and remakes.

The Top TenXW

1Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives

I think this film gets forgotten in the series. I thought this one breathed new life into the series. This is the one where Jason is officially brought back from the dead, so now his superhuman qualities don't seem so ridiculous since he isn't human anymore. This one has a lot of suspense and action, but is also the first in the series to introduce a sense of humor about itself, often winking at the audience. This one stands out to me from the rest of the sequels.

The only one that gotten good reviews

Who said Jason had to be the killer for these movies to be great. This movie had suspense, awesome kills and a grainy look that can rival any other horror. To me, his mother was much creepier and more unexpected than a big, freakishly strong man, you knew could totally decimate people. Also, this was one of Kevin Bacon's early works.

Victor Miller said that he hasn't seen any of the sequels because he doesn't like that Jason is the killer and not Pamela as she was in the original.

3Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

Jason was big and bad, not corny looking. It had a 1950's feel to it. I've always loved that grainy film look.

Part 4 had the best characters, the best ending and had some good kills, plus it has crispin mcglover and corey feldmen - fridaythe13ththefinalchapter

4Friday the 13th, Part 2

The best of hall. Pillow case mask was pretty scary!

Better than the original.

5Friday the 13th Part III

This is the movie where Jason first finds the goalie mask that would then make him an icon of horror. Richard Burton also does an amazing job as Jason (and may he rest in peace).

Did I say Richard Burton? I'm really sorry. I meant "Richard Brooker." that guy is the real Jason. and may he rest in peace to.

6Friday the 13th, Part VII - The New Blood
7Freddy vs. Jason

The horror movie version of goku vs. superman

Best horror movie of all time - dan28

8Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning

Violet's character and dance makes the whole movie the best of all time

9Jason Goes to Hell

Or, more accurately, Jason goes to Development Hell, and, given a few years, he figuratively and literally launched into the stratosphere and beyond with Jason X. - JR302

10Friday the 13th, Part VIII - Jason Takes Manhattan

The killer who couldn't swim managed to swim from the statue of liberty to shore

I know. Jason's condition with water seemed to come and go with every installment. Of course he drowns before the first film, but he's shown walking right into the lake on many occasions as if its nothing. He also manages to die and come back to life in every movie from 6 to 8. It wasn't until Freddy vs. Jason that the series decided to make water a full-on fear and weakness for him. The continuity is all over the place. - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11Friday the 13th (2009)
12The Final Girls

Not a official movie in the series but just as good

13Jason X

Feel free to give this film all you want, but a cybernetic Jason going on a killing spree in space? Sounds pretty entertaining to me. - JR302

This is pretty cool. I think the futuristic designs are awesome at and I also like the design of Uber Jason.

I was just wondering what David Cronenberg was doing in this movie.
