Best Slasher Movie Franchises


The Top Ten

1 A Nightmare on Elm Street A Nightmare on Elm Street

Freddy Krueger is one of the most dynamic and complex villains ever in the slasher genre, and his charisma and dark humor oftentimes made his character something special and unique. - JR302

2 Halloween Halloween

Michael Myers is a very curious slasher villain, and that is due to his seeming humanity. Essentially, Michael shows on a few occasions throughout the franchise (e.g. gently taking the baby from Tommy, showing Jamie his face and shedding a tear) that, perhaps deep down somewhere, he is still human, and that he might not be in control of himself. But, as well all know, there is regardless a supernatural force that compels him to live... and to kill. - JR302

3 Friday the 13th Friday the 13th

Jason is the psychopathic corpse who, despite various deaths, keeps on coming back for more and more. His physical and mental retardation along with a tormented upbringing, as well as supernatural abilities, make him an unstoppable killing machine without mercy or remorse. - JR302
