In honor of a new Jason outing ive made this week Jason Voorhees week and im making my way through the entire series (despite knowing them all like the back of my hand) . I currently am up to Jason Goes to Hell which means all i got left is the crap.
Ive also made this blog to honor my favorite horror series by ranking a number of things in order of my favorites in the series (im excluding Freddy Vs Jason as i wouldnt include Alien VS Predator in the Alien series). Ive worked through my choices as ive watched the films. My favorite kills, characters, sex scenes, and various other categories. So read on if you like and maybe itll make you want to re-visit Crystal Lake this week.
Here is how I rank each film in the series from Best to Worst:
1. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives
Jason Lives has actually just became my favorite this week. My favorite had always been the original. In the past year ive watched Jason Lives a number of times and everytime i watch it i love it so much that i always start debating which one i like more. Then i eventually decide well i gotta love the original. Its the classic. I cant deny it anymore. I think Jason Lives is the best of the Friday films. Its official.
2. Friday the 13th
3. Friday the 13th Part 2
4. Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter
5. Friday the 13th Part 3
6. Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood
7. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
8. Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning
9. Jason X
10. Jason Goes to Hell
Now for the rest of my favorites or least favorite things in the Friday series...
MY TOP 3 FEMALE CHARACTERS:
1. Jennifer Cooke *Megan* (Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives)
2. Lar Park Lincoln *Tina* (Friday the 13th Part 7: A New Blood)
3. Amy Steel *Ginny* (Friday the 13th Part 2)
MY TOP 3 MALE CHARACTERS:
1. Thom Matthews *Tommy Jarvis* ( Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives)
2. Corey Feldman *Tommy Jarvis* (Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter
3. Tom Fridley *Cort* (Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives)
- Cort probably seems like a weird choice but he's just a hilarious and dumb character. Him rockin out to some Alice Cooper while his girlfriend gets her face slammed into the side of an RV wall makes me smile everytime.
THE TOP 3 STUPIDEST ANNOYING CHARACTERS
*not surprisingly, they are all from Friday the 13th Part 5*
1. The Hillbillies from Friday the 13th part 5
2. The Idiot Greaser from Friday the 13th Part 5
- he only has 2 minutes of screen time yet he is one of the most annoying characters in the whole series.
3. The fat chocolate lovin retard from Friday the 13th Part 5
MY TOP 3 KILLS IN THE SERIES:
1. Sleeping Bag Death (Friday the 13th Part 7)
2. Cripple gets a machete (Friday the 13th Part 2)
3. Split in 2 during sex (Jason Goes to Hell)
MY FAVORITE JASON VOORHEES:
Kane Hodder (of course) (Fridays 7-10)
MY FAVORITE UN-MASKED JASON:
every movie Jason looks completely different when he is unmasked so my Favorite version of him would be
-Friday the 13th Part 7: A New Blood
BEST OPENING SCENE:
- Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives
The opening 10 minutes set the tone for the entire movie and it opens perfectly. The setting of the cemetary with the wind whipping around as Tommy and Horshack dig up Jason only for him to be resurrected Frankenstein-style. Then we get the great Jason 007 shot that lets you know this one is gonna give you something a little different. Love it.
- Friday the 13th
a no-brainer. Jumped out of my skin when little Ari jumped out of that water.
BEST JASON DEATH:
-Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter
God Bless Mr. Savini.
BEST PIECE OF WEAPONRY USED
- The deputy's gun with the giant Laser Pointer. (Friday the 13th Part 6)
Remember... Wherever the red dot goes... ya bang!
BEST SEX SCENE:
-Cort and Nicki (Friday the 13th Part 6)
Theres absolutely NO nudity but its still the greatest.
THE TOP 3 NUDE SCENES:
1. Tina (Friday the 13th 5) * most peoples choice ... for Ahem... obvious reasons*
2. 80's Hologram Teens (Jason X)
"We loooove pre-marital sex!!"
3. Debbie (Friday the 13th Part 3)
-more of a blink and youll miss it but the adorableness of Tracie Savage makes it all worth it.
MY CHOICE FOR WHO SHOULD HAVE GONE NUDE:
-the lovely Sandra (Friday the 13th Part 2)
IF I WERE MORMON AND COULD LEGALLY HAVE 4 WIVES:
Sandra (Friday the 13th Part 2)
Vickie (Friday the 13th Part 2)
Paula (Friday the 13th Part 6)
Annie (Friday the 13th)
