Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D Dir. by Steve Miner (1982), starring Betsy Palmer, Steve Miner & Richard Brooker
Debut of the mask, and Jason dispatches some wannabe tough bikers.
Friday the 13th Dir. by Sean S. Cunningham (1980), starring Kevin Bacon, Tom Savini & Betsy Palmer
Twist ending that would make Shyamalan envious.
Friday the 13th Part 2 Dir. by Steve Miner (1981), starring Betsy Palmer, Lauren-Marie Taylor & Warrington Gillette
Jason is dressed like Farmer Joe in this one.
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter Dir. by Joseph Zito (1984), starring Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover & Judie Aronson
Feldman + great pacing and semi-likeable characters, make this my personal favorite.
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood Dir. by John Carl Buechler (1988), starring Corey Feldman, Tony Goldwyn & Jeff Bennett
I find this one funny, & it's got the sleeping bag kill. My 2nd favorite.
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Dir. by Tom McLoughlin (1986), starring Corey Feldman, Tony Goldwyn & Ron Palillo
I really enjoy this one. Smart, self aware, and ahead of it's time. Love the James Bond style intro.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning Dir. by Danny Steinmann (1985), starring Corey Feldman, Miguel A. Núñez & Jr.
The kid who takes an ax to the head over a candy bar is the only highlight for me. The one I've watched the least.
Freddy vs. Jason Dir. by Ronny Yu (2003), starring Evangeline Lilly, Kelly Rowland & Monica Keena
Love it. Underrated I believe.
Friday the 13th Dir. by Marcus Nispel (2009), starring Jared Padalecki, Danielle Panabaker & Amanda Righetti
Could have been better. Left the theatre disappointed.
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan Dir. by Rob Hedden (1989), starring Kelly Hu, Kane Hodder & David Jacox
Spending most of the movie on the boat, & an ending that I still don't get, does bother me. That cheap Statue of Liberty charm Sean gives Rennie bothers me more
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday Dir. by Adam Marcus (1993), starring Erin Gray, Leslie Jordan & Kane Hodder
This was a waste of my time. Oh no, just wasted more time Ranking and discussing it further.
Jason X Dir. by James Isaac (2001), starring David Cronenberg, Lexa Doig & Peter Mensah
If space Jason ran into Ripley, or the Queen Alien, cool. The way it is...not.
