“Attitude is everything when it comes to the character. I'm real natural when it comes to looking scary. If you're not seriously trying to frighten people, then the fear these movies are intended to generate doesn't come across. I truly try to scare the sh*t out of people all the time. Between takes, in the make-up trailer, you never know when I'm going to scare you.”
"After years of hanging out and working with Kane I thought I'd heard all his
stories but his book is a surprisingly honest and revealing peek behind the mask
of one of horror's busiest stars. Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out!”
“That was the scene I disliked most, where Jason turns into a little boy at the end of Part VIII. Somehow in Rob Hedden's mind, I think, it was a valid ending and he knew what he wanted, but I don't think it was presented so that people could understand it. I hated that whole ending. And I fought it to the bitter end, but I was overruled. That's why I pushed to ignore that ending when we began Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday(1993).”
“I won't be unemployed. But I will resent the hell out of the fact that somebody else is wearing that mask.”
“Not only do they get paid millions of dollars, but then they go on talk shows and say they did all their own stunts. That happens all the time. I've seen actors from movies I've worked saying they did all their own stunts. There is no actor who does all their own stunts, period. Don't listen to any of them. They may do a few of them. Not even Jackie Chan. He probably does the most stunts (himself), though.”
