Happy Friday the 13th everybody!
Everyone loves Jason Voorhees, the hockey mask wearing maniac who goes around killing people like it’s going out of fashion. So what better day to celebrate his antics than on Friday the 13th itself.
Jason has been scaring audiences for decades and the Friday the 13th franchise boasts no less than 12 films!
Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), Friday the 13th Part III (1982), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986), Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989), Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), Jason X (2001), Freddy vs. Jason (2003) and Friday the 13th (2009) make the complete list. There was even a television series – Friday the 13th: The Series! (which ran from 1987–1990).
Since it’s Friday the 13th today, we thought we’d take a look at 5 entertaining death/kill clips from the Friday the 13th series. These aren’t the best of the best, (there are too many to pick from) but here are a few scenes which we find quite entertaining!
1. Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives
This scene really is funny as a group of paintballers meet their end thanks to Jason.
2. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
One of the franchise’s finest moments, Jason is punched left and right, but is it enough to topple him?
3. Friday the 13th
In this classic scene Mrs. Voorhees gets what’s coming to her!
4. Jason X
Jason in space! What could possibly go wrong?! In this hot weather, it’s also an appropriate scene to help you cool down with.
5. Friday the 13th (2009)
This was widely panned by critics and fans but this scene (one of the first death scenes in the film) is actually really well made, and put us off using sleeping bags for life.
