Personal Quote:

I actually turned down Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) to do The Burning (1981) because Jason was running around in "Part 2" and as you know, there is no Jason. Jason was a kid that died in the first movie. If you watch a "Friday the 13th" movie past "Part One", you're stupid. 'Cause there's no Jason. There shouldn't be a Jason. See more »
