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.
