Meet Jason Voorhees!
The 13th day of Shocktober 2016 celebrates by taking you to Camp Crystal Lake, where a young of young people, including the great Kevin Bacon, are about to have a terrifying night!
You see, Jason has decided to crash their party in the most horrorifc way! Time to celebrate the classic 80’s slasher, “Friday The 13th!”
IMDB describes the plot this way:
“One summer at Camp Crystal Lake, a group of young counselors begin to get ready to lead campers. Unfortunately for the former, someone isn’t happy about what’s going on in the camp and enjoys playing kill the counselor. As bodies fall to the ground in the camp, no one is safe.”
Ain’t that the truth! Here is the original trailer:
This horror classic has spawned NINE SEQUELS – and while the quality may be variable, this series has connected with an entire generation of horror fans!
Director Sean S. Cunningham has said that the type of actors that he sought for the film were “good-looking kids who you might see in a Pepsi commercial.” And that is certainly what he got!
The movie was filmed at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco in New Jersey. The camp is still in operation, and it has a wall of Friday the 13th memorabilia – a mini-movie museum!
