Best Friday the 13th and Nightmare On Elm Street Movies


The Top Ten

1 A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)

Oh yeah. The first one beats all of the movies in the series except part 3 which was pretty good. The first one took itself seriously and not like it was made poorly for kids. It truly is pure horror where you'll pee your pant while your blood turns cold.

Easily the greatest out of the list. Will remain a classic forever. I hope, anyway.

This should be number 1. I thought it was scarier than Friday the 13th because of how deadly it was.

Friday the 13th saga sucks. The first one was good but sequel sucks.

2 Friday the 13th (1980)

Was gonna vote for freddy vs jason but I'd rather see this triumph instead of a nightmare on elm street

3 Freddy vs. Jason

In my opinion Freddy and Jason are tied.

It was awesome dude.i have the movie.But Chucky is scary.Jason won.Freddy lost.Jason's tougher and better

I didn't always thought freddy and jason had gone together but this one's still pretty entertaining.

I agree with you, man! And I agree with you, jason is the best. Jason wins!

4 Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter

This was way better than the original

5 A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors

This is the best sequel in the Elm Street series. the dream warriors are likable characters and they give Freddy an interesting backstory. plus, it was Patricia Arquette's first film.

I love it to. I also like that small cameo of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

And I also like that cameo of Dick Cavett to.

6 Friday the 13th Part II

Before Jason had his iconic hockey mask, all he had was a potato sack.

7 Friday the 13th Part III

The one where Jason first gets his iconic goalie mask.

8 Friday the 13th (2009)

The remake sucks. - RobertWisdom

9 Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Loved it Freddy is scary

10 Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives

It's a shame this is so low! In my opinion, Jason Lives features great kills and no 5 minute scenes of sex, and it's truly what a Friday the 13th movie should be like! Definitely should be #1, higher then Freddy vs. Jason and the original Friday the 13th in my opinion. - Mario_Deluxe

This list doesn't make much sense when compared to the individual lists for both franchises. On my Friday the 13th list this movie is 1st (and rightly so). - BKAllmighty

How could this not be on here? Its brilliance rivals that of the first Friday the 13th! - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Revenge

This was my first noes and I loved it

12 Jason Goes to Hell

This is one of The Nostalgia Critics guilty pleasures.

13 Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
14 A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

This should be higher than a nightmare on elm street 2

15 Jason X
16 A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The remake sucks. - RobertWisdom

17 A Nightmare On Elm Street 5: The Dream Child
18 Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare
19 Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
