Which Friday the 13th is your favorite?

Mine is Friday the 13th: Part 2.

It's got the hottest heroine (Ginny), the most shocking death (machete to the wheelchair-bound fella's face), the best end chase (rivaled almost by Part 3), the cutest girl victim (Terri), the most likable guy in the series (Paul), the creepy campfire tale, and the best line:

"Paul, there's someone in this room. THERE'S SOMEONE IN THIS FUCKING ROOM!"





Ginny Field: Please help me!

Pop quiz hotshot...

Which Friday the 13th movie features the only pregnant girl to be killed by Jason (that we know of)?

Bonus: What's the girl's name?

(Man I hope no one is as big a nerd as I am...)


Debbie "claims" to be PG...?


Well word to your mother! You win the coveted Golden Ax.


Hee! I'm a junkie...

My favorite is Part 6. With all due respect to Kane Hodder, C.J. Graham is my favorite Jason. I also really liked Tommy Jarvis in Part 6, I liked the added tension by (finally) having kids staying at the camp during Jason's appearance, and the Alice Cooper songs were very cool. I was just playing "Teenage Frankenstein" in the car the other day. big grin


Man I love that song dude! I like how it abruptly ends when Cort gets stabbed in the head, and echoes "Frankenstein...ein...ein...ein" followed by one of the coolest stunts in the series, the capsizing of the trailer.

I like Part 2 because I think it's creepiest and scariest, but Part 6 is my second favorite for sure, it's much more fun. Every time I watch it I find new funny jokes. I love when Cort tells the kids the story of the rock piles...Sheriff Garriss' death was quite novel...the blood-soaked cabin after Paula's death is really creepy...and yeah, Tommy Jarvis was a really likeable character in this one. The opening scenes, of the moonlit, foggy woods, have always been genuinely scary to me. The score's a lot more fun this time out also, Manfredini pulls some new tricks out of his hat. The opening graveyard resurrection is just classic. The only thing detracting from the movie was the lame, non-funny paintball victims. Nice triple decap, but otherwise...eh.

"Wherever the red dot goes...YA BANG!"

"Jason, you've done well and mommy is pleased."

I actually think the bag-over-the-head is extremely horrific.

I also pretend Jason Takes Manhattan doesn't exist. I own everything except Part 8. Anyone seen "His Name Was Jason" the documentary? Totally, totally freaking awesome.

Random musings...I also liked Jason Goes to Hell a lot, even though most don't. The main character Stephen is really funny, and really likeable. I've never seen him in the series, but I wouldn't mind checking it out some day.

And man...I REALLY wish someone (anyone listening?) would release F-13: Part 6 score + songs on CD? And I mean a legit release. Nuff said.

There's a cool shot in Part 2...Terri is in her room looking for something to cut Scott down, she's checking all around the room, she ducks down out of sight from the camera, and when she stands back up her face is extreme close-up, looking right into the camera, and her eyes dart nervously left and right. A cool lil' moment.

Jason Takes Manhattan was actually the first Jason movie I ever saw, in its entirety. It's not at the top of my list, but I don't hate it like most others seems to. I can still enjoy it. I like it more than Jason Goes To Hell and certainly a lot more than Jason X. For me, I like original eight films by Paramount and Freddy vs Jason.

I never even started watching these movies until about 2003 or so, actually. I generally avoided horror flicks when I was a kid and didn't start getting into the genre until the late-90s. I saw Jason Takes Manhattan in 1998, I think, and that was it. Until a friend started introducing me to the others in 2003, I only saw bits and pieces on TV over the years. Nowadays I've seen them dozens of times.

I am the uncaped crusader for all F13 music to be released...(except part VII and VIII by Mollin)...I'm particularly upset this year because it's the 30th ANNIVERSARY of F13 and the perfect time to release something...anything! After this year, what's the next logical anniversary? 35th? 50th? I don't want Intrada to have to deliver my CD to the nursing home. frown

Perhaps this will tide you over...

Excellent, Holly. big grin

Cooper's 1986 album Constrictor contains "Teenage Frankenstein" and "(He's Back) The Man Behind the Mask," but "Hard Rock Summer" got left off and was never available until his 1999 The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper box set.

OMG...one of our favourites...seriously (i.e. Man Behind The Mask).

We are currently listening to Meurtres in 3D Dimensions...but still pining for Part 6. Sigh.

I remember when I was about ten or so, Friday the 13th Part VII was on cable, and I was too scared to watch it alone so I sat in my teenage cousin Nan's lap the whole time. I was so scared by it. It's such a dark, humorless entry. Especially the really scary parts in the dark woods (where a lot of it's set), cause I was really scared of woods at night as a kid.

Pop quiz: which movie is this line from?

"You talkin' to me Sheriff? ... Oh, I thought you was talkin' to me..."

Expect pop quizzes throughout the day...until someone inevitably tells me to cease and desist. I wish I had a prize to give out...ummm...I have an extra copy of the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre?

The first time I watched F-13 1...I was six or seven (1980), and with my mom and auntie. Scared the you-know-what out of me. Man...this is what got me addicted to horror films, probably. Bwah. Anyway, love all these films; and the score music...well...that's just beyond words.


And yep, I still love it all, to this very day...I'm a junkie, in that respect.

I recently saw the aforementioned 2-disc DVD documentary on F13, and I also recently finished a really interesting book on the series, Making Friday the 13th: The Legend of Camp Blood. I don't usually read "movie books" but I really wanted to learn about the iconic legacy of the longest-running horror movie series in history. Rivaled in any genre only by James Bond, I think?

Definitely a series where each movie never gets dull and is incredibly easy to watch over...and over...and over...

Love the Elm Streets, but I don't feel repeated viewings with those.
