Everyone's a critic! Which is why for day three of our slasher showdown we're looking at the comparison between how the critics and Yahoo! users have rated every film that slasher icons Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, and Freddy Krueger have starred in. Though there seems to be an equally shared love of them among horror fans, the critics have quite a different opinion.
None of the horror franchises have ever prided themselves on being critically acclaimed, but in our efforts to settle the debate for a slasher winner, we felt it was worth considering the grades. It seems that aside from the first film of each franchise, critics have generally panned the rest of the movies throughout the years. It was, however, the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise that received the most love of all gaining an overall C average among critics.
See how each of the films was rated below by both critics and Yahoo! users:
