The final post for this Friday the 13th. I’ll be ranking the franchise, worst to best. So, let’s do it! (Freddy vs. Jason is excluded)
11.) Jason X– I can’t really put my hatred for his movie into words. I just can’t stand it.
10.) Friday the 13th (2009)- The worst theatrical experience I’ve ever had.
09.) Jason goes to Hell: The Final Friday- Just a pitiful attempt to be different.
08.) Friday the 13th (1980)- Just an overrated horror film.
07.) Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood- Pretty much the Final Chapter with magic powers.
06.) Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives- Pretty good entry.
05.) Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning- I love this “black sheep”
04.) Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan- I admit, it would be better if it took place in New York, the entire time. I still have a soft spot for it.
03.) Friday the 13th Part 2- When the series began to gain momentum.
02.) Friday the 13th Part 3- Probably the most important entry, Jason gets his signature mask on this.
and #1 is…
01.) Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter- Everything is great about this sequel!
