Happy Friday The 13th! Jason Voorhees is introduced to modern movie audiences....

At Camp Crystal Lake, a group of young counselors begin to get ready to lead guests in the summer. Unfortunately for the counselors, someone isn't happy about what's going on in the camp and enjoys playing 'kill the counselor'. As bodies fall to the ground, no one is safe in the camp. The one that started the cinematic career of masked hockey killer Jason Voorhees, even though Jason doesn't actually do the killing in this film. But everything is in place, the horny teen-agers, the gory killings, and of course, the memorable theme. Adrienne King makes a gutsy heroine in Alice, and Betsy Palmer is positively off her rocker as Jason's pyschotic mom. Also check out Kevin Bacon in one of his first roles. Followed by countless sequels including the even better Part 2, this is the one that started it all!

 Look at a young Kevin Bacon amid the horny teenagers...
 Yeah one of Jason's few weaknesses...not a very good swimmer
 Meeting Jason's crazy ass mom
Just when you thought it was over
