Jason Voorhees is in the killing business, and brother, business is good. In fact, Jason is the most prolific slash and stalk movie killer ever. HeyUGuys.com confirms that Voorhees has racked up about 146 murders in just 12 films. That's a rate of 12.2 slashenings per outing. Compare that to Myers with a 9.4 rate and Freddy's pathetic 4.4 and you see who the real king boogeyman is. Check it out: HERE
Given those numbers, my list of Jason's Top 13 shouldn't be too difficult to find. It's the rankings that matter though, so let's get to it.
13. Friday the 13th Part 6 (Cort's Last Ride)
Poor Cort, he was a funny and truly likeable guy. Unfortunately, while doing the dirty, Cort and his girlfriend are startled by something.outside. After they decide to take off, the girlfriend gets pushed through the RV's bathroom wall. Cort is driving and jamming out to Alice Cooper so he has no idea what's going on. So sadly we're left with Cort's last ride
12. Friday the 13th (2009) (Sleeping bag kill 1: Inferno)
Jason isn't that into chicks, other than his mommy that is. When the stunning Amanda gets down to business with her boyfriend, Jason decides to break up the party. As one camper stumbles on a marijuana field another is strung up. Amanda is a super hot girl, and she's about to get even hotter.
11. Friday the 13th Part 5 (Oh Baby)
Slashers have a long history of casting effeminate male actors as tough guys. Some have a natural affinity towards acting and totally pull it off, some don't. Here we get Demon, a guy who's supposed to be dangerous. As we see though, he's actually more like Prince or Little Richard. Demon and his girlfriend share a memorable and oddly playful moment just before things turn ugly. Side note: Jason hates Doo-Wop!
10. Friday The 13th Part 8 (Fight For Your Life)
A ton of guys have tried to fight Jason with varied results of failure and death. Julian just has badass written all over him and when confronted by the big guy on a New York City rooftop. Probably not super intelligent, but definitely courageous. Here we see what happens when a fired up trained fighter like Julius gets his shot at Jason's title.
9. Friday the 13th Part 2 (Just Roll With It)
Mark's death in part 2 really bothers a lot of fans. It would be nice to see a handi-capable person be one of the first to best the hulking Jason. Mark's character surely deserved a better sendoff. In the film it's discussed that Mark was a tri-athlete and that gives you a little false hope that he might not go the way of Franklin from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, alas.
8. Friday the 13th Part 3 (Let's Split)
Andy and the gang are having a great time and getting ready for bed. Then Jason has to be the ultimate buzz kill. Andy is just a regular guy waiting on his girl to be finished in the bathroom. Sadly however, he gets the wrong end of this deal and from a male hand-standpoint, this might be Jason's worst kill ever.
7. Friday the 13th Part 4 (I Saw That)
Axel is just another cheesy '80's perv trying to get a nut. After Jason is killed in Friday the 13th Part 3 he's brought to the local morgue. Axel spooks a willing nurse who quickly turns cold, then we get to see what he doesn't. That's right, Jason doesn't like it when a guy doesn't know how to be a gentlemen.
6. Jason X (Sleeping bag kills 2 & 3: Two Is Better Than One)
A ridiculous film that manages to gorey, funny and really, really bad all at the same time. In this clip Jason, now a futuristic killing machine, becomes trapped in a virtual reality device similar to the holideck from Star Trek. It's a dirty trick designed to allow our protagonist some escape time. Jason is briefly transported back to the 1980's (sort of) and the unhappy hulk takes it out on the first two campers around.
5. Friday the 13th Part 3 (Targeted)
This scene finds it's way near the top of our list for two reasons. One being it's still a great 3D kill scene, even by today's standards, which says a lot. The second reason is even more simple, it's Jason's first murder in his now iconic hockey mask. Here the lovely Vera finds out what happens when Jason truly takes aim at his collection of teenage victims.
4. Freddy Vs. Jason (Closed Case)
Here we find our resident campground madman going out of his way to help Freddy kill some Elm street kids. Freddy plays puppet master while the big guy does the heavy lifting. In this scene jerk of the universe frontrunner Trey gets exactly what he deserves. I mean seriously, nobody talks to Katherine Isabelle that way. So now we know, Jason is the one who would walk five hundred miles just to ..kill a batch of almost 30 year old actors playing high school kids. Thanks Jason!
3. Jason Goes To Hell (Love Hurts)
Here we see a sexy couple doing their thing in the woods next to Crystal Lake. However, nobody has yet realized that Jason's soul has escaped and is leaving a bloody trail of kills for all to see. Jason sticks to his strict rules of punishment for unprotected sex and gives a kind of public service message. The more you know! Not a great movie but a fantastic kill scene. (Caution: you must be 18 to view this one)
2. Friday the 13th Part 6 (I'll Have A Triple Decap Please)
This scene, like many in the slasher series, was cut heavily by the MPAA goon squad. However, it still manages to maintain it's cool little theme. Jason doesn't approve of corporate retreats for the one percent crowd. When a few Paintball enthusiast come to shoot it out at Crystal Lake, they quickly discover that two heads isn't always better than one, three aren't either.
1. Friday the 13th Part 7 (Sleeping bag kill 4: Slam, Bam, Thank Ya Ma'am)
This was the first time I remember thinking there may have been a legit reason why my mother wouldn't let me watch these films in the '80's. This scene was yet another cut heavily by the MPAA and eventually went from being a bloodbath to just a simple thud. Fortunately, the edited version is way more deliberate and chilling than anyone could've ever expected.
