Friday the 13th Victim, Eva Watanabe

Serial killer Jason Voorhees isn't a discriminating slayer, but to date, his only Asian female victim has been Eva Watanabe (played by a then-unknown Kelly Hu), in Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989). As you can see from the above scene where Eva meets Jason, and her fate, her death sure wasn't merciful, but at least it was "splatter-free."

As for Kelly, she's definitely not one to be found in the "Whatever Happened to..?" file. In fact, she's gone on to have the most successful career of all the ladies who've played prey for Jason in any of the films in the franchise. See her list of credits, spanning 26 years, at her IMDb page.


  1. Wonder if Jason will ever pop up here in SF?

    1. Maybe someday, Steve. Looks like there's already a sequal to the 2009 remake of the 1980 original, in the works. So, Jason may visit the Bay Area at some point during the "second-generation franchise."
