WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Since Part 7, Kane Hodder has gone on to reprise his role as Jason three times: In 1989's 'Jason Takes Manhattan', 1993's 'Jason Goes To Hell' and 2002's 'Jason X'. Then, despite being inexplicably passed over for the role of Jason in 'Freddy vs. Jason', Kane has gone on to movies such as 'B.T.K.', 'Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield', 'The Devil's Rejects', and '2001 Maniacs'. In addition, Kane has taken on another iconic role, that of Victor Crowley in the fledgling 'Hatchet' series. His upcoming projects include 'Sickle', 'Escape of the Living Dead', and 'Black Friday'.

In addition to that, he also appeared in a 1988 episode of 'Freddy's Nightmares' titled 'Sister's Keeper', playing the role of Ben. So I guess he wasn't rejected by any more of the finest science fiction magazines in the continental United States.

In addition to that, he starred as Ben in two episodes of the television show 'Freddy's Nightmares' (1989-1990). A horror fan himself, he was very upset with how the two latest installments in the 'Return Of The Living Dead' franchise, 'Necropolis' and 'Rave To The Grave' turned out in 2005. He is also known for his involvement in the 'Gingerdead Man' series. William grew up working the carnival circuit that his parents owned and operated, which is where he caught the acting bug. Currently, William is writing and producing film and television commercials in Los Angeles for his company, Transition Films. Next up are two films he wrote, 'Demon Road' (2012) and 'Hell Storm' (2013).
Stacie Greason, Jane from Part 7, has retired from acting. After the film, she went on to several TV shows in the 80s and 90s.
