Jason Voorhees Kill List / Visual Guide Part 1: Jason Takes Manhattan

Friday The 13th 8 Jason Takes Manhattan

Ok, here is the first part of what will hopefully become a 100% accurate and complete visual guide to every character and actor who has died at the hands of the legend that is Jason Voorhees.

Getting on each list is simple: The character MUST be directly killed by Jason himself and where possible the kill must be confirmed … any questionable deaths will be included to be judged by you the readers and possibly edited in the future.

If available, full character names will be included along with the names of the actors and actresses who portrayed them … links to IMDb will be inserted so you can find out if any of your favourite victims went on to achieve Hollywood stardom or if getting slaughtered by the big man was just a very cool moment at the start of a more humble career.

As you have no doubt noticed I’m not starting from the beginning, this is simply because in the last couple of weeks I went on a Friday The 13th viewing marathon … It’s been a few years since I watched many of them and I wanted to start with some of the more questionable entries first, the films I remembered liking least to see if my opinion had altered over time.

So what did I learn from watching Jason Takes Manhattan again?

Well, New York gets short changed due to budget restrictions, the use of Jason’s ability to ‘teleport’ in front of victims reached laughable new heights and it was arguably the last time we would see him simply stalking and killing teenagers without major gimmicks being included until the recent remake from 2009. It’s actually a fairly solid entry, some of the cast seem to be having fun, the death count is high and Jason looked great. Ultimately better than I remembered with a couple of classic death scenes that would probably feature in my top 20 of all time.

Here we go …
