The Movie: Friday The 13th Part III
The Character: Shelly (Larry Zemer)
Poor Shelly. He's pretty much the archetype for the annoying, joke-laden, but wannabe-friendly guy who ends up as so much slaughter-bait.
Brought along by a mate on a lake cabin trip where he's promised plenty of interaction with the opposite sex, he choses to crack bad jokes and even cries wolf at one point - a truly idiotic idea in a slasher pic.
If Only They'd: Skipped the visit to the barn, where a certain Mr Jason Voorhees is lurking and slaughtering teenagers.
How Do They Die? When confronted by the masked murderer, he asks for a shave and gets a closer cut to the throat than he'd have liked. Still, he manages to stagger out and burble a plea for help to one of the others.
Who thinks he's still just joking, thanks to those earlier, make-up-fueled pranks. Dolt.
