VS The first match in the innaugural Slasher / Horror movie villain tournament pits The Hockey Masked Killer from "Camp Blood" vs The Leprechaun! Jason Voorhees Jason is #1 in the tournament field in terms of body count with between 146 and 212 kills. Sources have conflicitng reports, but the best report is here: http://www.fridaythe13thfilms.com/saga/bodycount.html This site lists each kill, how it was done, and what # that kill was in a) that film, and b) Jason's career. 146 is the confirmed number of ON-SCREEN kills BY Jason, but does not count those killed indirectly by things he set in motion (i.e. the sinking of the Lazarus, the explosion of a space station, etc.) Jason is one of only three fictional characters to win the MTV Lifetime Acheivement Award (the other two were Godzilla in 1996 and Chewbacca in 1997), which he won in 1992, making him the first ever. Jason's trademark weapon was the machete, but he has found success with the axe (thru a door into Sarah's chest in Part 4), and several garden / forest tools (see: Part 7). Jason's character appeared briefly in FTT part 1, and as a memory in FTT part 5. The character has, in some way, been a part of 11 films, including a Jason vs Freddy cross over and a futuristic "Jason in Space" adaptation. The original will be remade in 2009. The Leprechaun Do you know that thing actors do, when they play a very wholesome character, and in fear of being typecast, they play a bad character next time around? Well...Willow Ufgood? Meet - the Leprechaun. Proving once again that there IS work out there for "little people" actors, Warwick Davis became the iconic Leprechaun in 1992. Go back and watch the film - it was Jennfier Aniston's first "major" film role. The movie was made on a $900,000 budget and earned nearly $9 million domestically. The franchise has spawned 6 total films, including TWO "Leprechaun - In Da Hood" films. Freaking brilliant. The Leprechaun is motivated by either getting back his stole gold or finding a bride. More similar to a Freddy Kreuger type, the Leprachaun isn't silent - he speaks and often mocks his victims, often in rhyme. He's the only (?) villain I know of to kill a victim with a pogo stick, so that's points for creativity. Voting is open. Please do not spam.
