Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer) – Friday the 13th (1980)

The original Friday the 13th film is one of the most iconic slasher movies ever made. Even though our favorite masked murderer doesn't play much into this story, his mom, Pamela Voorhees, gets the job done. The head, as they say, doesn't roll far from the body.
