Friday the 13th: Now You Can Play as Jason Voorhees in This New Survival Horror Game
The Long and Bloody History of Jason Voorhees
Contrary to what many people believe, Jason was not the star of the first Friday the 13th movie. It is true that the 1980 film set the stage for the first movie. The basic premise of the plot is the camp counselors at Camp Crystal Lake being killed off using various sharp weapons. However, at the end of the movie it is revealed that Pamela Voorhees, Jason’s mother, is the murderer. Clearly driven mad by the death of her son, she believes she is hearing the voice of young Jason telling her to kill them all. The film ends with one of the few remaining survivors beheading Pamela with an axe.
The not-quite-dead Jason witnesses his mother’s death and comes back in Friday the 13th Part 2 to finish what his mother started. It wasn’t even until Part 3 that Jason acquired the hockey mask which would become his signature look for the rest of the series.
The Friday the 13th Game pays homage to the first movie through the narration in the game’s trailer. In it the voice of Pamela Voorhees introduces the players to the star of the show, her son Jason.

Jason Voorhees would go on to be the main villain in eleven movies, including Freddy VS Jason in which he faces off against fellow horror icon Freddy Krueger. He is big, he is bad, and as Freddy found out he is nearly impossible to kill. Nothing gets between Jason Voorhees and his love of murder, not even the master of nightmares.
