Parts 5 and 6 are missing from my roster.

But i've watched all the others many times. Excluding Jason goes to hell. I just needed to watch that once.

Not a fan of 8 and 9, but have seen all of them multiple times. 

 

Edit:  8 had its moments, don't get me wrong.  Much like X, the setting was just too much to handle for me.  At least X was more "tongue in cheek" and didn't seem to take itself so seriously.

Just upgraded my entire Friday the 13th collection to blu-ray a few months back, so yeah. I've seen the films numerous times over the years.

I have watched them all tons of times. Though the first 4 are easily miles ahead.

Anyone else find it ironic that the guy most famous for playing Jason, arguably had the worst movies?

Edit: Having said that I enjoy aspects of pt 7,9 and X.  8 is total shit.

Grew up with them. Jason goes to Hell and Freddy vs. Jason were the only ones I got to see in theaters though.

Same here.  Skipped the remake in theaters due to having young kid and wife who was not into it and wouldn't waste a babysitter "date night" on it.  I did catch Jason X in a matinee one day after grad school alone.  It was me and maybe 3 other people in the entire theater.

My question is how many of us have re-watched the series after playing this game?

Own them all in multiple formats

Two faves: 1 and 7

Best Jason design: 7

Worst: 5 and X

Also loved FvJ. Loved the Bed kill. Guy was a jerk and deserved it.

I even own the remake and "His name was Jason" video.

After playing game last week, I had a F13 marathon over the weekend.

If you liked His Name Was Jason, then give "Crystal Lake Memories" a go.  It's a major undertaking as the total is almost 9 or 10 hours, but each film gets its own mini documentary.  The book of the same name by Peter Bracke was really insightful as well.

Same for me. I was born in 1982 so most of my movie watching was done on VHS, but did get to watch Jason goes to Hell and FvJ in the theaters. Think I might have watched Jason X in the theaters too, but not too sure on that one...

I was about to mention that the other night, but yeah. Crystal Lake Memories is HIGHLY recommended for Friday the 13th fans.

The book went into even MORE depth than the extensive CLM documentaries.  If you're a Friday fan, get the book as well.  The hints of trouble with the original financiers(insinuations of Mafia ties), Part V being directed by a porno director (spending a day or day and a half filming just the sex scene in the woods)....  lots of great anecdotes.  I need to go back and re-read the part about possible Mafia ties, but I think it was in the chapter about part 1 or 2.  Don't quote me on that.

Seen all of them at least two or three times, except the 2009 remake which is just the once so far.

Parts 2 and 6 I feel are genuinely good films. While most of the rest I can pop in and enjoy. It's only really 5 and JGTH that I don't get along with.

Crystal Lake Memories is truly fantastic, very detailed and very well paced despite the length. And man, so many of the cast still look good (a few look even better than they did in the films).
Something about being in these slasher films seems to be good for the skin :P

Haven't read the book but I can imagine it's a great companion piece to the documentary.

Book was a few years before the documentary.  WAY more detailed, highly recommended.

how can anyone hate part 8? That movie is the one that has one of my favorite kills in the game "the head punch" cracks me up every time. I have been using part 8 Jason lately just for the full effect, last two rounds I was Jason, I killed every single counselor each time using that kill move exclusively.

I've seen them all at least once. Haven't seen JGTH probably since it first came out of VHS. Honestly Jason is my least favorite of the Myers/Krueger/Voorhees group though

I'm a massive horror movie freak and the Friday the 13th movies were some of the first I was exposed to as a kid in the 80's. They kind of all blended together for me back then but I've obviously rewatched them several times since and I think they are actually much better than what they are given credit for. There's some ground breaking stuff in the first four that helped define the whole slasher genre.

My personal favs are 1, 2, 4 and 7.

2 is so brilliant and creepy with all the Jason POV shots and the ending! I think they lost the atmosphere with 3 but 4 recaptured it and built on it and it was the end of an era in many ways. 

I love 7 because of the whole battling Jason with psychic power thing. So weird. Did you guys know that part 7 was actually supposed to be Freddy vs. Jason? I believe Paramount and New Line couldn't come to an agreement about the film so Paramount said "Fuck it!" and turned it into part 7. Crazy stuff. 

Jason Goes to Hell completely destroyed the mythology and made it too ridiculous athough the beginning is EPIC. Never saw X. Saw Freddy vs. Jason in the theaters but I was kind of disappointed. I really expected something bigger and more abstract. I feel like they played it too safe. It was ok but man...you can't tell me the fans didn't expect something wilder and crazier. It just didn't deliver. 

It should have started with them fighting but then teaming up at the end to slaughter everyone. For example. :D
