Jason Ruthless but not Heartless
Kane Hodder who portrays the character of Jason in several of the franchise films, refused to kick a dog in the face to get it to stop barking during the filming of “Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan”. He told the director that even though Jason was ruthless when it came to killing people, even Jason couldn’t bring himself to harm such an innocent animal. Jason, was a friend to the animals.
