Guys, it's not like if you decide to stay in a cabin in a secluded area of the woods — oftentimes with three or four of your attractive friends — that you're all going to be killed one by one by demonic creatures/flesh-eating viruses/other people.
It's that you probably will. There's a difference. Get More »
Time goes by. You get older. You start wondering if you'll ever see an infographic featuring every character ever killed by Jason Voorhees complete with the various forms of murder he chose to knock off his hapless victims. Then you start wondering if you should go to therapy.
NextMovie can't help you with that last part. Good luck. But as for that infographic? It exists for your (really weird) viewing pleasure!
Thanks to our casual acquaintances at Slashfilm, we have a comprehensive infographic of literally every single character murdered by Jason Voorhees in the "Friday the 13th" / "Jason" movies - and how they met their maker. Our amateur eyes draw a few conclusions:
- Jason killed a lot of people with spears.
- In the first few movies, he killed women as much as he killed men. Later films we seem to see a softer side from Big Jase as he sticks to killing dudes, mostly.
- He's not above using anything sharp to kill you. Anything sharp at all.
- Poor "Sgt. Brodski" from "Jason X," who seems to have been lit on fire. Yikes.
- "Dan" from "Friday the 13th, Part VII" was impaled by Jason's arm? Alright then. Tough one for the medical examiner.
- The fact that there was a film called "Jason X" suggests that a lot of characters really blew it re: putting this guy down once and for all. My goodness.
Your move, Krueger.

In horror films, serial killing weirdos will use just about anything to murder their victims. Chainsaws, axes, knives, hatchets, guns, ropes, bear traps, poison, gas, swarms of rats, water, whatever. You name it, someone has used it in a movie to kill people.
But you know what can really kill you? Butter.

Not all great cinema stars have the most auspicious beginnings to their lives in celluloid. Some start in commercials, TV, bit parts, background work. Hell, a few even dabble in porn (we're looking at you, Sylvester Stallone).
Ground zero for acting talent, more often than not, is the horror genre. This being Halloween season, we decided to highlight a few mega-talents who jumpstarted their careers in much the same way they entered the world: naked, screaming and covered in blood. Get More »
Because he's a generous guy, Joss Whedon is giving us another movie besides "The Avengers" this year. This week we're getting "The Cabin in the Woods," Whedon's take, with cowriter-director Drew Goddard, on the title horror subgenre that subverts expectations ... and then some.
Before you take a trip down the rabbit hole of this terror/sci-fi hybrid, we suggest boning up on the essentials, where the standards were set. Seclusion + nature - good sense ÷ gore = all the protagonists of these films. Get More »
Packing for vacation can be both fun and stressful as you figure out just what you need for your big trip. Sunglasses, passports, hiking boots, etc. But when you're heading to a vacation retreat featured in the movies, there's one thing you just absolutely must pack.
A body bag.
Inspired by "The Cabin in the Woods," we've got listings for some of Hollywood's favorite -- and deadliest -- vacation destinations. So check out these ads (designed by Dustin Glick) and start packing. Heat, that is. Get More »
Everybody has their favorite Halloween snack -- candy corn, Twizzlers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups -- but according to the results of our ultimate Halloween poll, there's one food nobody will be eating this year: Pea soup.
The results are in and with almost 16 thousand votes, there's no doubt about it: "The Exorcist" has been named as the overwhelming choice for Scariest Movie of All Time, defeating runner-up "Paranormal Activity" by a nearly two-to-one margin. Get More »
Kane Hodder is a legend in the horror biz, with more on-screen kills than you could count. He also wore a hockey mask more than most Canadians do when he portrayed bloodthirsty murder machine Jason Voorhees in four "Friday the 13th" installments, a series record. (His personal favorite kill is the infamous "sleeping bag against a tree" scene.)
Recently Hodder has found a new avenue for his particular brand of personal expression as deformed maniac Victor Crowley in the "Hatchet" series. He will begin shooting "Hatchet 3" early next year, and, in his words, is "anxious to get back in that Victor makeup and kill some motherf***ers."
For all the nightmares he's given people over the years, there are a few fright flicks that have given Hodder the shivers as well. After reading through his terrific new autobiography "Unmasked: The True Life Story of The World’s Most Prolific Cinematic Killer," we asked the genial Hodder what his favorite scary movies are -- and he has some doozies.
