Kane Hodder has been killing people in film for almost four decades, and has amassed the largest kill count of any other horror icon. Whether he's portraying Jason Voorhees, Victor Crowley, the BTK killer or any of the various other characters he has played, Kane pours his passion for the genre into each one. He was born to kill..... in movies that is, but is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Here are my top 10 favorite Kane Hodder kills.

10. Frozen Head
Jason x (2001)

Love it or hate it, Jason X had some pretty awesome kills. My favorite from the film has to be the frozen head smash. It is quick but brutal.

9. Don't Be A Hero
Hatchet III (2013)

A lesson in not being the hero if I do say so myself. Who hasn't wanted to see Jason vs Jason? Derek Mears as the cocky Special Agent Hawes met his demise in a very gruesome way. Sorry Derek, but this was this was the best death scene of Hatchet III.

8. Don't Box with Jason Voorhees
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)

Give him some credit, not many people would try to box with Jason Voorhees, not his brightest moment, but gutsy none the less.

7. Death of Rev. Zombie
Hatchet II (2010)

Reverend Zombie's death in Hatchet II may be the goriest of the entire film.

6. Goodbye Melissa
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)

Melissa was without a doubt one of the biggest bitches of the Friday the 13th franchise. After all of her underhanded moves in The New Blood, who was not happy to see Jason put a hatchet in her head and toss her across the room?

5. Guitar Smash
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)

She wanted to rock but got rolled instead. This is one of the most unique kills of Kane's career as Jason.

4. Rip and Smash
Hatchet (2006)

Everything that could go wrong for this kids, does. The brutality of the kills in Hatchet is insane.

3. Trent Graves
Hatchet II (2010)

R.A. Mihailoff is not used to being manhandled, but Victor Crowley completely destroyed his character Trent Graves in Hatchet II.

2. Sleeping Bag
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)

What is not to love about this? Jason is notorious for killing with his trademark machete and various other weapons, but some of his most intense kills come from his bare hands.

1. Mr. & Mrs. Permatteo
Hatchet (2006)

Number one is a double whammy. I know these are 2 separate kills, but the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Permatteo are so brutal I had to put them both at number one. These kills pretty much sum up not just this film, but the entire Hatchet series.

There is no question that Kane Hodder is a horror icon and will continue to be for years to come. What is your favorite Kane kill? Let me know in the comments below.
