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.

If there is one thing Jason Voorhees loves almost more than killing everyone he meets it is the ladies. The proof is in the pudding, folks! Jason loves to spend as much time as possible with members of the fairer sex. Sure he gets all stabby and hacky with them but no one is perfect. With that in mind I have put together this list of the best Final Girls to ever come up against Jason and live to tell the tale.
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.

Another Friday the 13th is upon us and as luck has it this one falls within the month of February which is also Black History Month. So in honor of the stars aligning these two auspicious occasions together I decided to put together a super-cut of all of the fine young (and some not so young) black actors to have the honor of a gruesome onscreen death at the hands of Pamela Voorhees’ overly exuberant bouncing baby boy.

There is a lot not to like about the 2009 FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, it was awfully written (by a cadre of writers no less) and mundanely directed and had the unmitigated gall to actually have Jason Voorhees running. Running I say!!! Jason doesn’t run; he walks at a brisk pace but that is about it. But those are not even the things that I am most bothered by. So with that in mind I present to the world on this Friday the 13 of May in the year of our Lord 2016 my top 6 reasons for why the FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot sucked.
