    I used to have a recurring dream that Jason was a transgender who rode around on a little girl's bike killing people with women's cosmetic tools. No schtick. :jj::crazy2:

    re. friday the 13th
    i was always curious whether the last survivor, a teenage girl, in the back of a police squad car in the end, would receive some psychological intervention.
