    All 80s horror were teeny-bopper flicks!

    I like Friday the 13th, but I love NOES. I used to watch them when I was around 12 with a couple of friends.

    I voted for Nightmare on Elm Street, because pound for pound, I feel it's the more creative of the two.

    I agree Nightmare is more creative, but I like Friday the 13th more, and I think it has the better sequals as well. I remember Friday was always a fun movie for me, while Nightmare scared the crap out of me. But now, Nightmare's special effects seem so dated and it doesn't scare me at all. Cool premise, but I think it is a move that could use a new sequal/ remake with better effects (and NO! I don't mean CG).

    Definitely Nightmare on Elm Street for me. I love the Friday the 13th franchise, but part I doesn't do anything for me. Parts 2, 3, 4, 5 and Jason X are me big favorites. On the other hand, I love NOES, but all the sequels don't do anything for me.

    I love them both, but have to go with Friday by a nose. I saw Friday at the theaters when it came out in 1980.

    Nostalgia aside, NOES wins easily. At least it is inventive! I dig Jason, I own the Box Set but the original is little more than a remake of BAY OF BLOOD, lets not forget that.

    I think the Friday the 13th movies work in harmony with one another. And they're like Lays potato chips. You can't watch just one in a row. The Nightmare series movies are more different from each one to the next, that the first movie really works apart from the sequels.
