This list will be constantly updated throughout the year. Some of these I've had time to review, some I haven't. Also, this doesn't necessarily reflect what are the best films of the year, just my favorites. For example, last year I thought "Spotlight" was the best film of the year, but my favorite was "Fury Road."
- 1.Midnight Special
- 3.10 Cloverfield Lane
Happy 13th! Here's my opinion of the best to worst of Jason Voorhees. I personally don't count either "Freddy vs Jason" or the 2009 remake as part of the franchise, so they aren't here.
- 1."Part 6: Jason Lives"You'd think a list like this would start with #1. It was the first, so it has to be the best, right? Nope. This is the entry that turns Jason into the supernatural, unkillable killer that we know and love. It also has a great tongue in cheek sense of humor and sly references to classic horror films before being self-referential was cool (such as having Jason resurrected by lightning, a la Frankenstein's monster).
- 2."Jason X"The last entry in the franchise is one of the best. Since it's usually dubbed the "Jason in Space" movie, it's totally made for the fans. As evidenced by scenes like the virtual reality Camp Crystal Lake moment, or the line, "Guys, it's OK. He just wanted his machete back." Plus, there's no denying that after his "upgrade," Jason just looks so cool!
- 3."Friday the 13th"NOW we get to #1. One of the seminal slasher films, a creative take on the classic "And Then There Were None" plot, with (what was at the time) a great twist to the killer's identity. Also not only cemented Tom Savini's reputation as a king of practical effects, but also how well he could work under obviously tight conditions. Oh, and Kevin Bacon.
