Join us this week as we take a look at thirteen of the top kills found in the Friday the 13th films that began in 1980 with the influential horror film from Sean Cunningham featuring ground breaking graphic effects from the Godfather of Gore, Tom Savini. The series of films that followed are responsible for bloody practical effects that wowed, astonished and horrified audiences as Jason Voorhees claims victim after victim - or finally meets one of his many ends, often at the hands of Tommy Jarvis.
Horror News Radio co-host and contributing writer at Diabolique Magazine, Dave Dreher joins Doc Rotten to revisit the Friday the 13th franchise tackling 13 top kills. After weeks of bartering back and forth, the duo settle on the list that follows. A few highlights include Kevin Bacon meeting an early end in the original Friday the 13th and Ron Palillo from Welcome Back, Kotter going face to face with the resurrected Jason in Friday the 13th: Jason Lives. Splattering blood across the big screen, Jason supplies a variety of tools to slice and dice through the cast of characters, machetes, arrows, knives and even liquid nitrogen.
