Summary: There are hundreds of slashers out there in the world of cinema. Some are more notorious than others. But all are eclipsed by the man with the bloodied hockey mask. The bane of Crystal Lake, New Jersey. The one, the only, the tale of Jason Vorhees.

History: Jason Vorhees grew up a deformed and mentally stunted child, picked on by his peers and unloved by everyone except his doting mother, Pamela. One day, Jason was drowning in the lake, and the councilors were too busy having sex to notice. In a vengeful fury, Pamela killed most of them before meeting her own demise via decapitation. But Jason never actually died. In fact, when he got word of his mom's death, he became quite literally too angry to die, and dedicated the rest of his life to murdering anyone who dared get in his way.

Notable Kills: Most of Jason's kills are practical, but the two stand-outs are when he beat a person-filled sleeping bag against a tree for a while and that one time he dunked a girl's face into liquid nitrogen before slamming it on solid ground.

Final Fate: Pamela is dead forever, and Jason's imposter Roy is too, but Jason simply never knew when to die. He'd get resurrected as a revenant, as a demon from Hell, an opponent against the infamous Freddy Krueger, or even a cybernetically-enhanced being centuries into the future. It all ended when he was cast into space, and forced to burn up upon reentering a new Earth's atmosphere.

Powers/Abilities: Jason has amazing durability, and more times than often relies on his trusty machete. As a demon, he can slowly turn others into himself so he can live on and, as Uber Jason, it might be possible for him to regenerate from absolute destruction through nanomachines.

Weakness: A fear of water (occasionally), too much damage at once.

Scariness Factor: 5-Jason is unfeeling, non-speaking, horrific violence given human form. Sure, his backstory is sympathetic, but it hardly excuses being one of the most feared serial killers of all time. No matter where he is or who he's up against, Jason presses forward so that the blood flows in rivers.

Trivia: -The advertising for the first film came to be even before the script was finished. The filmmakers were desperate to get attention as quickly as possible. It was a surprising success.

-Although horror remains something of a niche thing among film-goers, Jason's franchise is often considered to be one of cinema's most successful on account of how it, like the killer himself, won't stay dead.

And it'll be like that for QUITE a few years.

At least, she's not Norma Bates

I guess undeath and water make you grow up fast.

I can see why he had a mask change. How do you see in that thing?

It didn't work for the Amityville sharks. What makes this different?

An icon is truly born.

Has it? Has it really been that?

Immortal, but not invulerable.

Our nightmares are a testament to that.
Walk upon the razor of life, then the scythe of despair.

That damned man won't die!

Just when you think the franchise is over, THIS happens!

Carrie's lesser know cousin, that's who.

He didn't take Trump's rise to fame well, it seemed.

"Corperate greed...corperate greed everywhere..."

Evil doesn't die. It evolves.

Witness the end of two eras.

Brazil, this is probably one of your more accurate posters.

At least, he didn't crack a pun like his opponent.
Wait a couple of years for an actual conjurer of nightmares.

Quit spoiling the main attraction!

Damn pop-culture osmosis.

All it takes is one bad day...

The Annoying Orange's lesser known fate.

Even Jason is sick of this 3D gimmick!

Just to make sure, somebody please don't pull that out.

"This is for trying to watch a 2D version of my last film, twat!"

Oh, look. A copycat killer. What are the odds?

"Voorhees. Jason Voorhees."

Jason: Horror's famous punching bag.

There's overkill and then there's this.

One that's literally got it all in his hands

"I'm rotting all over and I can STILL destroy you with a punch."

Ew. One of Freddy's bunkmates.

Screams internally

Remember when Jason was just killing average ordinary teens and not getting beaten up by sex-droids?

Yeah. What really happens is quite the opposite.

Burn him once? It's pain. Twice? Power.
Stop counting at the third film. Make it easy on yourself.

Give it a minute.

Not the catfight you're looking for.

Before Harry Warden came into town...or after, really.

Phase 1 of the scary mask was...short-sighted, to say the least.

The very swing of his weapon can generate shockwaves! No use hiding, now.

First real signs of implausibility.

Wait your turn, Molasar.

What a way to die.

Uber Jason, is that you? Already? And ripping off Leatherface, no less?

Sorry, but blue doesn't fit the mask.


Every killer has an extra breaking point.

"Quake in terror of Cosmic Jason!"

Seems a bit more of a downgrade.

Reap what you sow, Jason. I'll admit, though. This is getting out of hand.

Looks like Korn retrofitted his body.

Who's nightmare is this? We shall soon see...

A day that has and forever will live in infamy.

Don't forget the second film. Before the mask, as well.

Have fun! Your head shrine's gonna look great!

Years at the bottom of the lake will do that to you.

A bit visceral for the tastes of the purists.


Finally! He's dead...right?! I mean, look at that!

At least, this copycat killer has style! Horrifying style, that is.

He dies as he lived. Utterly nuts.

Even the maggots can't get enough of him!

Now's a good time to throw in the towel and hop back into the lake, 'kay?

Still want him, fangirls I'm not sure how exist?

It's never over. Not without this spectacle, at least.

You can never cut away your past.

You can almost hear the proverbial gears turning in his head.

Guess I betted wisely.

Just you wait until you get to space, kid. Anyway, savor your victory!
