Friday the 13th

Synopsis: A group of young adults set up tent near the abandoned summer camp where a series of gruesome murders are said to have taken place back in 1980. The perpetrator was a grieving mother, driven insane by the drowning of her child, Jason, whom she believed was neglected by the camp counselors. As legend has it, the last survivor of the attacks beheaded the woman. But then Jason came back, and now he is a vengeful and inexorable killer, wielding crossbows, swords, axes and other sharp instruments. The legend proves horribly true, as these campers quickly discover. Six months later, the brother of one of those campers distributes posters of his missing sister. The police believe she took off with her boyfriend; but he knows better. The brother crosses paths with an uptight young rich guy who is having his girlfriend and friends over at his parents' cabin. The brother ends up at the cabin himself just before his sister's attacker sets upon them all.

Jason was my son.


I didn't do anything.

No. No.

No. Please.

You shouId have been watching him.

Tomorrow morning, you and me, we get up

We cut down as much as we can.

We ditch it in the truck.

-Back here before breakfast, okay?

-Nobody knows a thing.

There's a perfect spot here.

It's aIready been cIeared.

Perfect. We'II camp here.

Some woman, she went f***ing nuts.

He was Iike...

...deformed or retarded or something.


Mom got hers.

ApparentIy there was one survivor.

This girI...

...she cut that Iady's head off

with a machete.

It gets weirder.

I'm sure it does.

Her son, Jason...

...he came back.

He was actuaIIy there.

He watched his mom being beheaded.

A friend of mine,

he went to camp around here--

Oh, jeez.

-He went to camp around here.

He said the cops came.

They were Iooking for that Jason guy.

AII right, you know what?

-Don't beIieve me.

Nobody does.

But I'm pretty sure,

the way the story goes...

...the pIace was caIIed

Camp CrystaI Lake.

Do you know how many Iakes

are probabIy caIIed CrystaI Lake?

It's Iike CrystaI Geyser, CrystaI Water.

Go to a supermarket.

Every singIe bottIe of water

is ''CrystaI'' something.



-Okay, fine.


The story couId have happened anywhere.

It's how they get kids to sh*t themseIves.

-How's that beer, beer-snob?

-Better than my own piss.

You can drink that, by the way.

Yours, hers, mine. I swear, piss is steriIe.

-You wiII never drink my piss.

-That's what you think.

What about me?

-Can I taIk to you for a minute?


I got marshmaIIow on my knee.

-Where you guys going?

-Go make out.

Oh, yeah?

-Hey, Mikey?


Wear a condom.

An extra smaII one.

I get it, dude.

You do what you gotta do to survive.

If we were aII out here starving to death

and you were dead...

...I'd eat your Ieg.

-That's reaIIy sweet. Yeah.

-Thank you.

Why wouId you eat my Ieg, man?

I can teach you how to fish. Just go fishing.

I don't eat fish.

That's not what you toId me.




...I don't think I'm gonna stay

the whoIe time.

Did Wade's story scare you?



I just....

I don't feeI right being here... far away from my mom.

Your mom was the one that toId me

to get you out of town for a few days.



And she's in good hands.

She's got her nurse right there.

Come on.

Have sex with your boyfriend
