    Very sad indeed :( She will be sorely missed. I like how they say she was the camp cook which isn't even mentioned in the movie.:hum:

    Some funny stories about her to share,, met her at chiller a few times. once she commented on my Rush t-shirt asking who is this?? ha it was the woman from permanent waves. Another time I watched her chase these 2 guys down cause they snapped a picture of her while walking past her table, and she got up and ran after them pissed off big time, telling them they owe her 20$ that you can't just take my picture without giving me money. and they got all scared and gave her 20 bucks. I saw the whole thing right in front of me.. Surprised they didn't just blow her off and keep going, what was she gonna do really??

    RIP Mrs. Voorhees.

    I think I'll watch the first film in memory of her.

    R.I.P. A beautiful woman. I met her at a convention several years ago (she was wearing the sweater). She was very kind.

    Oh, dear - I'm heartbroken at this news. So many of my favorite entertainers have passed in just the past few years (young and older).
    My heart!
    I appreciate how she came to embrace the horror fandom as of late.

    Sad news, she had a long and colorful career. Rest In Peace.
    The original FRIDAY is playing soon at The Carolina Theater in Durham on a double bill with THE BURNING. I wanted to go but don't think I'll be able to make it.
