Kevin Bacon went to Camp Crystal Lake.  So did Corey Feldman a few years later, in the same film as Marty McFly’s dad, Crispin Glover.  Kelly Hu met Jason Voorhees on his trip to Manhattan, while Killer Frost Danielle Panabaker was in a reboot, while legendary body horror film-maker David Cronenberg was in “Jason X.”  He probably wants to forget that film…  I know I do.   With 12 films in the canon, assuming you count ‘Freddy Vs. Jason’, the Friday The 13th series is as wide as a machete blade and equally sharp, leading to today’s triskaidekaphobic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will always have a spot in my heart for Part III, thanks to the 3D gimmick, but is one of the only fans of ‘Friday The 13th: The Series’ as well, asking: What’s the BEST entry in the ‘Friday The 13th’ series?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I haven’t seen even close to all of them, so can’t really tell. What’s the first one he had the mask on all the time?That one.

  2. I like the first one the best. I didn’t see the twist coming (I was, like, 10 at the time lol) And there was some mystery about who was doing the killing, and they had a motivation for it. The sequels were (mostly) a lot of fun, tho. :)

  3. “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter” was always my favorite because it is the first one that I saw. I think that kind of sticks with me in the same way as your first Doctor.

    I did recently watch the “Vorhees” fan-film and, I gotta say, it’s better than a lot of the official entries. Yes, I know that necessarily isn’t saying much, but still, credit where credit is due.
