Friday The 13th is known for its gruesome kills — and it's become obvious that no part of the body is safe from being wrangled, tangled or mangled. However, it's the head that gets punished the most in this franchise. Let's go over the most brutal noggin kills in the series!

Machete To The Face — Friday The 13th Part II

In this classic Friday The 13th kill, a poor disabled guy is waiting on his girl to come back from changing — but is hilariously surprised by a machete to the face.

Brutality Level — 8

Head Slammed Through Metal — Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Friday The 13th Part 6 really showed off Jason's strength again, and this kill is a great example of that. Not everyone can force someone's head through metal and make it look like plastic after all!

Brutality Level — 6

Neck Sliced With A Hacksaw, Then Twisted 180 Degrees — Friday The 13th IV: The Final Chapter

Jason doesn't take kindly to people laying food on his ''dead'' body apparently. That's the only explanation I could think for for this disgustingly brutal kill.

Brutality Level — 9

Shot Through The Eye With A Harpoon Gun — Friday The 13th Part III

While it's nowhere near the level of disturbing as the rest on this list, it still deserves a place for being a classic scene, and the first onscreen kill by Jason in his hockey mask.

Brutality Level — 3

Head Squeezed Until Eye Pops Out — Friday The 13th Part III

Another classic kill from Friday The 13th Part 3 is Rick's head being squeezed to death. Sure his noggin being crushed doesn't seem very severe for a Friday The 13th kill anymore, but the eye popping out must've surprised the audience back in 1982.

Brutality Level — 7

Skull Crushed With Belt — Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning

Who ever thought you could kill someone with a mere belt? Let alone crush a skull. What we do know however, is that there is there are no limits on what weapons to use in the Friday The 13th franchise.

Brutality Level — 8

Head Twisted Completely Off — Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

You can't deny the fact that this kill is absolutely hilarious in its calm brutality. He just quietly snatched her out the window and twists her head off. (Laughs in horror)

Brutality Level — 7

Face Sliced In Half With A Cleaver — Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter

On to a personal favorite — this kill obviously looks extremely painful, but the surprise cleaver right in his face is something only Friday The 13th could truly pull off.

Brutality Level — 10

Face Frozen Then Smashed Completely Off — Jason X

This infamous kill is one of the best, in one of the worst sequels to this franchise. Despite this, its popularity has still grown among fans, and was even featured on MythBusters to see if it's even possible.

Brutality Level — 10

Head Squished Inwards — Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood

By far one of the most underrated kills in the whole franchise. Jason just grabs the guy by his face, and squishes it inwards — not many can do that.

Brutality Level — 10

Skull Sliced In Half With Machete — Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter

The final kill comes from the Friday The 13th Part IV: Final Chapter (it wasn't really the final chapter). It shows Jason's skull not only sliced in half, but he also slides down his own machete in silent agony.

Brutality — 10

That concludes this list of disturbingly awesome head kill from the Friday The 13th franchise. I don't really know what Jason has against craniums, but it's sickening! Let's hope we see more skull crushing in the 2017 reboot.
