The Best Friday the 13th Movies

List Criteria: Only films in the Friday the 13th franchise

List of the best Friday the 13th movies. "Do you know who Jason is?" If you're a sucker for horror movies, the words Camp Crystal Lake and Jason Voorhees will certainly ring a bell. The Friday the 13th series is perhaps one of the most well-known collections of slasher films. In fact, the Imagine Games Network ranked the Friday the 13th series number 7 on the list of the top 25 film franchises.

The first movie was released in 1980 and was written by Victor Miller and directed by Steve Cunningham. Although the subsequent films were written and directed by others they were still wildly popular. Many of the movies were released during the 1980's and early 1990's. Keeping fans in suspense, the last film in the series, Friday the 13th was released in 2009.


The hockey mask worn by Jason Voorhees has been referenced to in other movies and used as a popular Halloween costume for many years. It is perhaps one of the most recognized items from a film. Toys and video games starring Jason Voorhees have also been created. There have been more than 100 commercial products from the Friday the 13th series available for purchase.

Read through the list to decide which Friday the 13th movies you thought were the best.
