Trying to pick my favorite death scenes for this series proved to be harder than I thought, because Jason is infamous for the gruesome ways he kills off teenagers. After careful consideration, below are some of my personal favorite movie deaths.
Victim No. 1 - Jack, Friday the 13th
After the first love making scene in the series (I don't count the very beginning between the two counselors because they were only making out at first), Marcie goes away to use the bathroom, like any sensible woman should, and mister Bacon is killed by an arrow being shoved through his throat.
Victim No. 2 - Alice, Friday the 13th part 2
Poor Alice, she almost made it out alive. It was kind of sad to see her killed off, because she was such a great character that you rooted for in the ending of the first movie. What made her death memorable is that she died in her own home, and by having a screw driver shoved through her skull, which had to have been a slow, painful death. This was the last we see of Alice, and the only time the Final Girl is killed off, because in every other movie there is a survivor in the end that is not mentioned or shown in the movie that followed.
Victim No. 3 - Adrienne, Jason X
Okay, this is a terrible movie, but I will admit that this death scene was one of my favorite scenes in the series. Jason takes her head and freezes it, and then smashes her face against a table. Even though this scene was pretty great, the best part was when the movie ended.
Victim No. 4 - Judy, Friday the 13th part 7
Judy was a very minor character in this movie, but her death scene made her memorable to me. Judy and her boyfriend Dan were camping in the woods, when Jason first murdered Dan, and then beat Judy senseless against a tree in her sleeping bag. Though nothing is supposed to be funny about this, I just wonder why she thought hiding in her sleeping bag would help her in any way.
Victim No. 5 - Eddie, Friday the 13th part 5
Again, another terrible movie with enjoyable death scenes. Here we have the nympho, Eddie, strapped to a tree and slowly being crushed to death by a belt. Everybody watching the movie saw it coming, because we all learned that if you have sex, you will most likely die.
Victim No. 6 - Other boxer (not important enough to be named apparently), Friday the 13th part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan
Another minor character whose death seemed to be one of the most gruesome in this film makes the list. Congratulations other boxer, this will be the only thing you are remembered for. Can you imagine how awful it would be to die like this? Jason takes a steaming rock and shoves it into his abdomen, holding him down so there is no struggle...that's pretty inhumane to me. Every time I watch this movie, I cringe at this part...poor kid, he lost the boxing match and then lost his life.
Victim No. 7 - Vera Sanchez, Friday the 13th part 3
First of all, I LOVED everything about this movie. From the super groovy theme to the awesome 3D feature, and of course seeing Jason in his signature hockey mask for the first time. Vera's character was very spunky, so you either loved her character or hated her, but you have to admit that her death scene was pretty gross. I get freaked out if I accidentally poke my eye or get a hair in it, so seeing her get shot in the eye with an arrow makes me cringe.
