Friday the 13th Victim, Violet

(SPOILER ALERT) The killer in 1985’s Friday the 13th – A New Beginning wasn’t Jason Voorhees, because he was “killed” in the previous year’s Friday the 13th – The Final Chapter, and wasn’t “revived” until 1986’s Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI. The Killer in a New Beginning was a man named Roy Burns and one can easily assume he killed Violet (as shown in the above clip) because of her terrible dancing.

Violet was played by actress Tiffany Helm, who actually studied dance and was a member of the Beverly Hills Mime Troupe. During her career, which spanned roughly from 1983 to 1996, she appeared in several other films and also some popular TV shows of the era. One of her most notable roles (besides this one) was that of Andrea “Fish” Eldridge in the 1986 cult favorite Reform School Girls. Her last listed film appearance was in the 1996 movie Rama. Since then, she’s been residing in the “Whatever Happened to ..?” file.
