The movies focus on undead killer Jason Voorhees (except in the first movie, where his mother's the killer), who wanders around in his signature hockey mask (that he only gets in the third movie), stalks the promiscuous teenagers who frequent Camp Crystal Lake, and brutally murders them.

The franchise yielded a whopping 10 mainline movies, during which Jason went to Manhattan, Hell, and ultimately, space (because of course he went into space). Not only that, but he even took on other famed horror villain Freddy Krueger in Freddy Vs. Jason, and WON.

It was, as a coworker described it, "literally the worst Friday the 13th movie, and we live in a world where Jason X happened."
