    I am rewatching all Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Halloween franchise films in an attempt to compare the films. After I have watched all of them, I will produce "Top 5", "Bottom 5", "Favorite Villain", and "Series Ranked" lists. While I have seen many of these, some of them will be first time watches for me.

    Anyone is welcome to join me. Even if you don't participate in the marathon, I would still like to hear yours lists below.

    Here is the order I plan to watch them in:

    Oh man. I don't know if I can commit to re-visiting all those. Especially since so many of those are so bad.

    @TheFilmRascalShow It is a challenge!

    Which series is your favorite?

    @chris Of all these, my favorite series is the Nightmare franchise. I feel like Freddy has more of a purpose behind his killings.

    Last night, I stumbled across Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan on AMC. Good lord is it a horrible movie.

    @TheFilmRascalShow On to Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)!

    I am pretty sure this is the first time I am watching this one, but I can't really remember. I have seen so many of them spread out over so many years that I can't remember which ones I have seen and which I have not.

    It has been fun to watch you reviewing the movies from these series! We did something similar with the original "Halloween" movies, but stopped short of the newer ones.
