Which series did you prefer? which villain did you like better? Freddy or Jason? which series was scarier?
Usually people that run from Jason end up dying anyway due to his "I can appear around a corner somehow and kill you" ability, and technically, you can run from Freddy too, it's called waking up.
You can run from Jason. Not from Freddy. Ironically, that sh*t Elm Street gave me nightmares. Jason films just gave me wet dreams. And let's not even talk about Jason X.
Friday the 13th, Freddy was scary in the first couple of movies but after that he just did too much wise cracking, reminded me of the uncle at family reunions who always pulls you over and tells you lame jokes he thinks are funny, Jason though, he stayed scary through all the films, Just an unstoppable 6 ft 200 plus pound guy with a machete who was there to do one thing and one thing only, kill you, he couldn't be begged or bargined with.
Let me first of all say that I absolutely love both series equally, however I believe Freddy's movies has alot more story and scarefactors while Jasons have a bigger "coolness" factor with all the different kinds of kills and being an unstoppable Juggernaut.
Its sort off like comparing an action game like Diablo against a Roleplaying game like Baldurs Gate, id wager BG with its deep story and immersion should be better but that doesnt make the hack'n'slash lootgrabbing any less fun in Diablo.
I was about to post a link to my thread but then realized this is a much older thread :)
Overall I prefer Friday the 13th films, there is alot more good than bad in them and I actually just enjoy them more. As for which killer I like better? Jason I like Freddy but Jason quite a bit more. Scarier? Gotta go with the Friday series as well its set in reality more so just comes off as scarier to me.
My top 5 80s horror
1. Nightmare on Elm St
4. Friday the 13th
5. Child's Play
No American Werewolf in London or The Thing? But you have a movie from the 70s (Halloween) and a movie from the 90s (Childs Play)
As a kid, Jason scared me far more than Freddy ever did. Freddy was almost humorous in the way he taunted his victims while Jason was always deadpan serious and never uttered a single word.
I agree with this post. With regards to personality, Jason is very similar to Michael Myers. Also, when I was younger, Jason's face (without the mask) used to scare me. Did you see Part 7?
Michael is by far the scariest for me, especially when considering the Rob Zombie remake when he was basically seven feet tall.
The last Jason film I've seen was Freddy vs Jason :P
