Part 3 for me

It's so quick and simple, the movie flies by and not awhole lot of "meat" to the movie unlike 2 or 4

but I love the setting, the summertime feel and I love the night scenes with the high winds

The setting is great but the main movie it's self is lacking so I always have mixed feelings

Part 5. It's a great stand-alone movie, but it's more soft porn than slasher at times. Maybe I'm weird, but I prefer things like plot, action and slasher fun than soft porn and drug use.

Being brutalt honest... The first two. I want to love the original because it's a classic, but it's also the film I'm most likely to skip out of any of them in the franchise. It's not just because it's Pamela and not Jason either, it's just something I can't really explain. Love the practical effects, they might be the best in the Franchise before the MPAA started clutching their pearls, but everything else... I just don't like it as much as I feel I should.

The other is P2. Again, I want to like it more than I do, but I find it slow and plodding in places, though it makes up for it near the end. I feel like P3 is where they really figured out the formula and the movies really started to feel like Friday the 13th movies as I grew up knowing them. The characters also start to feel more like actual characters... Shallow one-note characters in a lot of cases yes, but I can remember the names and faces of those characters. I can't really do that with the first two aside from the main ones.

I also might be a little bit bias because I grew up watching 3-8 a lot more than the first two. The cable channels just preferred to show the films with the guy in the Hockey Mask, so I just didn't get as attached to those first two films as I did the others.

2009 remake. I loved how it tied in both the burlap sack and hockey mask, plus the character development with two different groups of victims with assorted extra victims. However, to me it kinda degraded into a kill em and get it over with so the final chase could take place in Jason's tunnels. Don't get me wrong, that's the meat and potatoes of the franchise, I just would have liked to see it develop it little more

Would you have liked to see more of a stalk and kill sequence?
