A Definitive Ranking Of The ‘Friday The 13th’ Franchise

Friday The 13th Film ranking

The stars of horror aligned and today is Friday the 13th… in October. While Michael Myers owns the month, this is Jason Voorhees’ day. The Friday the 13th franchise goes back to 1980, when Sean S. Cunningham directed the original as a slasher ripoff of John Carpenter’s Halloween. Jason made his debut at the very end in one of horror’s legit greatest jump scares. His legend grew instantly, and by decade’s end, he was 8 (!) films deep. Now nearly 40 years later, the franchise has produced 10 films, 1 crossover, 1 remake, and a short-lived TV series… and damned if that doesn’t add up to 13! So in honor of Friday the 13th, we’re going to rank them from worst to first. Harry Manfredini … HIT THE MUSIC!

Stranger Things Friday the 13th Trailer Tease

Netflix has released a Friday the 13th teaser for the highly anticipated upcoming second season of Stranger Things.

The teaser is for the final season two trailer, which is set to be released tomorrow. Now in most cases I think trailers for trailers are ridiculous and wouldn’t waste your time with them. But this particular trailer tease is fittingly made in the same style as a trailer for one of the old Friday the 13th movies, and that’s pretty darn awesome.

‘To Hell and Back’: Trailer For Documentary About Jason Voorhees Actor Kane Hodder Released

Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th

Every fan of the Friday the 13th slasher series has their favorite Jason Voorhees. For many, myself included, it’s always been Kane Hodder.

A documentary about the man himself is on the way titled To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story. The doc tells Kane’s story, beginning with his difficult earlier years and leading to his landing the iconic role of Jason and other Hollywood roles. It also features interviews with Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), who faced off with Voorhees as Freddy Krueger in 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason (though not with Hodder, sadly); Bruce Campbell, who many fans wanted to see join the Freddy and Jason fight in a sequel as Ash from the Evil Dead movies (a battle that did happen in comic book form); Adam Green, who directed Hodder as Victor Crowley in the Hatchet movies after he moved on from the Friday the 13th movies; and more.

Happy Mother Day

Mothers provide us with unconditional love, which means we love them unconditionally as well. Sometimes, that means ignoring the fact that they’re completely insane and borderline psychotic. A mother’s love has been a focus in the horror genre for generations and with today a day for celebrating the women in our lives, I am taking a look at the Top 5 Horror Movies Moms:

Video: ‘Blair Witch’-Style ‘Friday The 13th’ Found Footage Fan Film

Friday the 13th Found Footage Short

A Friday the 13th: The Game is on the way, but the next movie in the long-running Friday the 13th horror franchise has had trouble finding a path to existence. The last movie in the franchise was the 2009 reboot, and various possibilities have surfaced since then in search of the next Jason Voorhees story to tell.

These have included Friday the 13th in a wintry setting, applying the popular (with some folks) found footage format, and doing another movie with no Jason at all. But ultimately, none of these have worked out. And probably for the best, as over-thinking a franchise such as this can be dangerous.

While we await the next movie in the franchise, a fan has created a Blair Witch Project-style Friday the 13th short film to show us what a found footage movie might have looked like. And though found footage may not be so appealing for a feature, a fan-made short like this is fun enough to pass a little time. You can check out the short below.

‘Friday The 13th: The Game’ Gets A “Killer” New Trailer

Friday the 13th: The Game #1

For PAX East 2017, developer Gun Media has released a new trailer for Friday the 13th: The Game.

The trailer is presented as a music video for a song called “Killer” by Crazy Lixx, and, fitting to its name, the video is incredibly violent. You know the words to this song. If you’re at all offended by digital fictional characters causing harm or being harmed in lots and lots of gruesome ways, probably best to steer clear.

For the rest of you, do prepare yourself for some classic Jason Voorhees brutality and click on over to the other side to watch the new trailer.

Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th

A major studio changing a scheduled release is common practice within the industry. But when it comes to pulling a major tentpole sequel off the schedule, that is something to worry about.

A new report confirms Paramount has pulled World War Z 2 and Friday the 13th of their scheduled release, with the latter later reported to be shut down completely. Both films were a part of Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes production company. However, they have announced a release date for Darren Aronofsky‘s mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence. More on the story below.

Friday the 13th: The Game Menu

We’ve seen some peeks at Friday the 13th: The Game in the past, but nothing really substantial. Thankfully the closed beta for the game has now kicked off, which means lots of great looks at the game.

Below you’ll find two of these lengthy looks at the game. The first is 17 minutes of camp counselor gameplay footage. The second is 15 minutes of Jason Voorhees gameplay. This is the beta, so remember the game is not yet finished. Still, it’s great getting a nice long look at it and people actually playing it.

It’s not much, but now comes a video sharing what the game’s beta splash menu looks like. The video shares a few different views of Jason Voorhees—close enough to guarantee death for any camp counselor who wanders too near to the Crystal Lake killer—along with some fittingly intense music.
