Horror movies have been around for almost one hundred years. The “modern” horror movie really started with “Nosferatu” in 1919. Nosferatu is a silent film about a lurking vampire that stalks his enemies. He has a misshapen head and razor sharp teeth. During the years following, the horror movie genre went from the creepy (Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy) to the brutal (Friday The 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and A Nightmare on Elm Street). Friday The 13th was known as the body count movie. So much so that Fangoria Magazine had a centerfold that featured each death from the first to that current movie in the series. Jason Vorhees, the killer in most of the movies (except his mother and the ambulance driver) in the Friday The 13th series, was a killing machine that felt no remorse. Each subsequent movie featured more brutal killings than the last. We are featuring some of the best killing scenes in the Friday The 13th movie series.
Friday The 13th (Original)
* Jack: Impaled with an arrow through the throat. Jack is young Kevin Bacon. * Bill: Throat slit, stuck to door with arrows into groin/chest/throat/eye. Overkill for sure. * Pam Vorhees: Decapitated. She deserves it. She killed a crap ton of people.
Friday The 13th (Part 2)
*Alice Hardy: Ice Pick to Temple. She survived the first movie. Killed after getting a shower and waiting for tea. *Crazy Ralph: Choked with barbed wire. Mr. “Death Curse. He should have lived through every movie. *Scott: Hung upside down and machete slit his throat. Killed in the woods. Isn’t most everyone killed there? *Mark: Wheelchair guy. Killed with one swipe of a machete across his face. He just rolled down the thousand steps in the pouring rain.
Friday The 13th (Part 3)
*Edna: Housewife that is needled through the head. *Vera Sanchez: Spear through the eye with a spear gun. She should have lived longer. *Andy: Walks on his hands…until he is cut in half with a machete. *Shelly: Throat slashed. Dude was annoying. You want to cheer for Jason Vorhees on this one. *Ali: The biker gang leader was overkilled with a dozen machete shots, wrench blows, and his hand cut off. He doesn’t actually die the first time.
Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (Part 4)

Friday The 13th: A New Beginning
*Vinnie: Road flare in his mouth. Creative *Tina: Eyes gouged out with garden shears. Gross, but awesome. *Eddie: Killed as he is pinned to tree with leather straps around his head.
