13 Friday the 13th Victims I Would Have Saved!


Other blogs have done this over the years, but I haven't... until now!

I am going to pick a victim from each of the Friday the 13th films
that I would have liked to have lived to see the sun rise over Crystal Lake.


Friday the 13th (1980)

Marcie (Jeannine Taylor)

Marcie was just cute and fun -
and did a pretty good Kate Hepburn impression -
and it was such a sad loss to see her
meet her end via Mrs. Voorhees' big axe!


Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)

Tie for this one:

Alice Hardy (Adrienne King)

I would have loved for Alice to have survived.
Why bring her back for this sequel just to off her in the opening?
Would have been great to get an F13 20 years later film, like Halloween H20,
where Alice returns years later to face down her demons.


Crazy Ralph (Walt Gorney)

Alas, poor Crazy Ralph, ye went too fast!
We only get him in the first two flicks, and that is not nearly enough.
Would have loved for Ralph to have been a recurring character for years.


Friday the 13th Part III (1982)

Andy (Jeffrey Rogers)

Look out, Andy!
I chose him because I thought he was fun and free-spirited.
And he was a good friend to Shelly,
who sometimes really did not deserve it.


Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)

Rob Dier (Erich Anderson)

Rob was a good guy!
He was at Crystal Lake to avenge his sister's murder.
She was Sandra, who was killed in Part 2.
Rob was resourceful and was kind to Tommy.
And he worried for Trish's safety
AS he was being killed by Jason.


Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)

George (Vernon Washington)

He was Reggie's kind grandfather, the man
who was raising the young boy when no one else would.
He didn't deserve to die at the hand's of a Jason impostor.


Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives! (1986)

Cort (Tom Fridley)

Cort was just wicked cool to me back in '86.
He was confident and fun and the kind of teenager I wanted to be.


Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)

Maddy (Diana Barrows)

Poor Maddy.
She overcame her self-image issues and gave herself a 
makeover, determined to change her luck with the dudes.
Unfortunately, she chose the night she was to run into Jason.


Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)

Colleen Van Deusen (Barbara Bingham)

All this good-hearted teacher wanted to do was help
her students have a good time on their graduation cruise,
and to maybe help Rennie overcome her problems.
When she needs help out of the police car about to explode?
Yeah, no one helps.


Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

Vicki (Allison Smith)

Vicki was a good friend, trying to clean up Diana's murder scene
before her friend Jessica walked in to see it.
She also watched over Jessica's baby for her, and when
"Jason" descended on the diner, Vicki stepped up and did her
damnedest to stop him, only to be killed in the process.


Jason X (2001)

Janessa (Melyssa Ade)

Janessa was the wise-ass, smart-aleck, not-quite-bad
yet not-quite-good girl from the future.
And it really sucked when we lost her.


Freddy vs Jason (2003)

Charlie Linderman (Chris Marquette)

Linderman was the nerdy kid who had trouble talking to girls.
But just when he started to find his self-confidence and
make some small progress with Kia, he ends up in the middle
of a war between Freddy and Jason!


Friday the 13th (2009)

Jenna (Danielle Panabaker)

You know what they say, if it wasn't for bad luck,
Jenna wouldn't have had any luck!
First off, her boyfriend is Trent. Ugh.
Second, she goes off with Clay to help him find his sister
and what does she get in return?
Skewered by Jason!
