Monsters lurk everywhere in pop culture—novels, comic books, TV shows, urban legends—but today, we’re focusing on killers who were born in the movies. For this io9 guide, we picked cinema’s biggest, most evil slasher-movie baddies... plus a few cult favorites, too.
Chi-chi-chi-ha-ha-ha. It’s Friday the 13th! What better way than to celebrate than by judging, ranking, and obsessing over the violent cinematic exploits of hockey enthusiast Jason Voorhees? Most of these movies aren’t even good!
With more than two days to go, Friday the 13th: The Game has reached its crowdfunding goal of $700,000. At $716,000 and counting, it’s possible they might hit some of the stretch goals, too. The single-player challenge mode at $1.6 million seems like it won’t happen, but who knows?
If you’d like to be scared shitless tonight, you’ve come to the right place.
There’s never been a good video game based on Friday the 13th, but the folks at Gun Media are hoping you’ll let them give it another shot.
It’s a psycho killer try-before-you-buy this weekend in Mortal Kombat X. If you bought the game but not the DLC, head over to MKX’s Living Towers this weekend to play as Jason Vorhees in what should have been a 13 round battle but ended up only being 6 because that’s no fun at all.

If you set the in-game date of the shipping version of SimCopter to Friday the 13th, the male residents would strip down and occasionally make out. The game was patched to remove this. The programmer who added it, Jacques Servin, was actually fired by Maxis.
Some might argue there's no reason to develop another Friday the 13th game, as the NES game is an all-time "classic," but they're making another one anyway.

Friday the 13th, the 1989 game, is widely considered to be one of the worst video games of all time, certainly one of the worst ever made for the NES. So of course it rates a special edition figurine—Jason Vorhees in the strange purple getup he wore for the final, deeply unsatisfying boss battle.
Happy Friday the 13th! Jason is over right now, he says to tell you guys, "Hi."
