Let’s explore some of the best kills in the Friday the 13th franchise.
1. The Death of Kevin Bacon in Friday the 13th (1980)
Kevin Bacon's death scene in the first Friday the 13th film is one of the series' most memorable kills. In the scene, Bacon's character, Jack, is lying in bed with his girlfriend when an arrow pierces his throat through mattress. The death is unexpected and graphic, and it establishes the tone for the remainder of the film.
2. Jason's Impalement in Friday the 13th Part III (1982)
Jason is at the height of his killing spree in Friday the 13th Part III, and his kills are more elaborate and creative than ever before. One of which is when Jason impales a victim on a hot metal rod by shoving it into the victim's back, causing the nearby fuse box to explode and the victim to catch fire.
3. The Sleeping Bag Kill in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
The Sleeping Bag Kill in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood is one of the franchises most iconic kills. Jason comes across a girl in a sleeping bag and decides to use her in the bag as a weapon by slamming her against a tree, thus killing the girl inside. This amazing and brutal scene is a fan favorite, so much in fact we made a shirt for it.
4. Liquid Nitrogen Kill in Jason X (2001)
One of the best kills in the film is when Jason drowns a victim in liquid nitrogen and then smashes her frozen head on a counter. The shatter effect gruesome and it perfectly captures the mood of the film. This legendary space crew will go down fighting, but was it enough to stop Uber Jason? Wanna be part of the legendary space crew? Now you can with this awesome shirt! - I know, shameless plug.
5. Friday the 13th Part II: Spear Through the Chest (1981)
Jason makes his first appearance as the sack killer in Friday the 13th Part II, and he sets the tone for his future murders by impaling a victim with a spear! Our favorite though is when Jason stabs that spear through the mattress and into the victim's chest while she is hiding under a bed.
