What is ‘Friday the 13th’
The original setting for Friday 13th was at Camp Crystal Lake, where the Voorhees left a trail of destruction. At Camp Crystal Lake is where Pamela Voorhees and her son Jason resided. Camp Crytal lake is where Jason had believed to of drowned. The camp closed and all subsequent attempts to reopen failed after Pamela’s spree of murders in revenge for her son’s death resulted in the locals believing the area to be cursed. Once the camp was re-opened once again Pamela’s murder spree was only stopped by that of councillor Alice Hardy.
Somehow having not died from drowning Jason spent the last 20 years waiting for his mother. Surviving off the land around Camp Crystal Lake and having built a crude shelter for a home Jason and Pamela would never reunite until her death. Having witnessed his mothers death Jason made a mock shrine out of her belongings and decapitated head. Soon Jason would begin his own murder spree and began with the teenagers at Packanack lodge. Time and time again Jason would be defeated only to return more grotesque and evil with every new encounter.
