“Ki, Ki, Ki: Ma, Ma, Ma”. He’s coming and he wants to kill for Mommy. Jason is he leaving Camp Crystal Lake in order to enter your streaming streams? Let’s see if any of the Friday the 13th films are currently streaming on Netflix!
Freddy’s Jumper and Claws, Michael’s Mask and Kitchen Knife, Leatherface’s Chainsaw and of course Jason and his Hockey mask. The impact of Friday the 13th's film franchise is evident in the memorable villains. Even if you’ve never watched a Friday the 13th film, the moment you see the infamous Hockey mask immediately Jason Vorhees comes to mind. The Voorhees still strike fear in the hearts of people almost 40 years later, 12 films later.
The original setting for Friday 13th was at Camp Crystal Lake, where the Voorhees left a trail of destruction. Camp Crystal Lake was where Pamela Voorhees lived with her son Jason. Jason believed that he had drowned in Camp Crytal Lake. The camp closed and all subsequent attempts to reopen failed after Pamela’s spree of murders in revenge for her son’s death resulted in the locals believing the area to be cursed. Once the camp was re-opened once again Pamela’s murder spree was only stopped by that of councillor Alice Hardy.
Jason survived drowning and spent 20 years looking for his mom. Jason survived on the Camp Crystal Lake land and built a primitive shelter to call home. Pamela and Jason would not reunite after her death. Having witnessed his mothers death Jason made a mock shrine out of her belongings and decapitated head. Jason soon began his murderous spree with Packanack Lodge's teenagers. Jason was defeated over and over again, only to be more evil and grotesque with each encounter.
Unfortunately, none of the ‘Friday the 13th‘ films are currently streaming on Netflix. Hulu streams Parts 1, 3 and the reboot of 2009. For the remaining movies, unfortunately, you’ll have to rent/stream at a cost.
Only Part 5 (Freddy vs Jason) are streamable on Netflix in the United Kingdom. For the full library of ‘Friday the 13th,’ you’ll need to have a subscription to Sky TV or Now TV.
Parts 4,56 and 7, are available for streaming. Netflix subscribers in Australia will have to settle for 2009’s reboot as none of the other films are currently streaming.
