But we haven't. What we think we know beyond a doubt doesn't mesh with the facts. I think that it's a genius entry. A shame it has been ridiculed for so long, but I believe that its life is extending year by year.

I went with part IV this time. III was the first one I saw (in the theaters), but I remember more from IV.

For a long time Jason X was my favorite, but that may have been because I hadn't seen the others in such a long time.

I reserve the right to change my mind again after re-watching them all.

Part V has always been my favorite. Pity the series went nothing but downhill after it.

Part IV has an even healthier lead on the blu ray.com poll. I chose 4 also.

The original is my fave but of the "Jason" sequels I lean towards VI with it's Hammer style ressurrected monster and quirky humor.The Alice Cooper tune is a plus too.

Surprised more people voted for part 2 than the first one. I mean, ok, it had Jason, but other than that Part 2 is just a 1:1 copy of the first. I don't hate it but it is the most unoriginal of the series.

For me it has always been a battle between The Final Chapter and Jason Lives, the winner depending on my mood. Last year I went through them all again though and Part II which was always near the middle to low ranking jumped to the top. To me it delivers all the ingredients that make a perfect Friday film for me. I love this rendition of Jason, the fact that he runs, is still scary, and has a great look with the bur-sack hood. I love that it takes place at a campground and has a campfire tale feel throughout it. And the most important part all the characters are very likeable.

Friday the 13th, Part II
Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives
Friday the 13th - The Final Chapter
Friday the 13th
Friday the 13th, Part 3D
Friday the 13th, Part V: A New Beginning
Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood
Friday the 13th (2009)
Friday the 13th, Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
Freddy vs. Jason
Jason Goes to Hell
Jason X

The original, hands down. It brought gore to mainstream slasher films and was actually a pretty decent slasher in its own right. It was also the only installment of the series that I found remotely believable. Mrs. Vorhees had personality. Jason is just... Jason. As far as I'm concerned, he died when he drowned as a child.

Having him witness his mother get beheaded (why did he live in the woods this whole time? Why didn't he just go back to his mother?) then wait 5 years to get revenge made no sense to me.

I guess I'm just not a fan of the series. But I love the first film.

Wha'chu talkin' bout, Willis? Jason wears a sack over his head. That is totally original. That ain't never been done before that. Never.

I think Mutilated Prey's avatar would tell you otherwise.

Never-the-less, Part 2 is my favorite, followed closely by part 5. Reggie the Reckless 4 Life Homeeez.

Oooh Baby, Oooh Baby.
