Despite being super violent, bloody horror movies that tend to venture into the realm of titillation for the male gaze an awful lot, the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise has really been all about the women. Starting with the first film where the protagonist and the antagonist were both women and then going into the majority of the sequels where Jason Voorhees ultimately would end up doing battle against a Final Girl, women have been the central figures in this film franchise. But that doesn’t mean some fellas haven’t played pivotal roles in the action too. So I have listed under the cut the gentlemen who I think have had the biggest impact on Jason and his bloody library of movies over the years.

Considered one of the best movies in the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise, Part 2 did a lot of monumental things like killing off original FRIDAY THE 13TH Final Girl Alice, introducing grownup Jason Voorhees (in a snazzy pillow case/potato sack instead of his familiar hockey mask, and presented a mystery that has plagued FRIDAY THE 13TH fans for decades and spurred plenty of questions surrounding the final fate of homogeneously handsome camp counselor/Ginny Field’s boyfriend Paul Holt. Now I have done some investigating and found out all sorts of info about what possibly happened to Paul but even after my sleuthing I still have just as many questions as when I started out.
