    Jason by a mile.

    He looks the coolest, either with a sack or that iconic mask.

    He's the most inventive. For a retarded errrrrrrr, special, kid, he sure does have some killing smarts.

    He's silent, Freedy was cool when he only said a few scary things, then he turned into a cartoon. Michael gets silent props as well, but his Shatner mask and sister fetish knock him down a few notches. Jason is the one who will kill anyone, anytime, for any reason.

    How would one categorize Last House then? Just a straight horror, suspense, thriller? I don't mean to nitpick, I was just wondering.

    Rape & revenge flicks (House on the Edge of the Park, I Spit on Your Grave, La Settima Donna) are typically subsumed under the umbrella of savage cinema.

    Structurally and stylistically, rape & revenge flicks have very little in common with slashers such as Halloween and Friday the 13th. Both may be gory and exploitive, sure, but a slasher keeps the killer mostly off screen while mounting a body count and moving towards a finale where the finale girl (who does not technically have to be a female) and the killer go toe-to-toe. Rape and revenge flicks don't necessarily have a body count, and the villain typically has a lot of screen time. Both incorporate some crime or tragedy as the starting point, but in the slasher, this tragedy spurs the killer's actions, where in the rape and revenge flick, it spurs the victim's.
