Geoff's response:

There is one on youtube set to classical music.
Harry Manfredini's original scores (he did the music for all but Part XIII)
were pretty fucking strong, though.
The Cryo-kill was from Part X. It's Top 10. That was Kane Hodder as Jason.
He was the best. Nobody walks through the woods like that. Nobody can emote
through a goalie mask like that. He's the best Jason, hands down.
The other Jasons were Warrington Gillette, Richard Brooker and Ted White, in
parts 2, 3 and 4, respectively.
Gillette gets my second place nod, even though he's sort of the George
Lazenby of the role. He was the only grown up Jason not to have a hockey

My favorite kills:
Part 6 triple decapitation of paintball guys.
Part 7 sleeping bag Batter-Up contusion
Part 7 weedeater with blade attachment
Part 3 almost out of the water-but-NO!-speargun up the ass
Part 5 hedge clippers in both eyes, then closed
Part 1 machete/wheelchair/stairs
Part 5 motorcycle/cleaver decapitation
Part 3 split up middle while doing headstand
Part 8 Boxing with Jason
Part 4 psyched out by Corey Feldman
