Jason Voorhees is the main antagonist and centerpiece of the Friday the 13th franchise and the secondary antagonist of the crossover film Freddy vs. Jason. He was an almost completely silent, undead and seemingly unstoppable killing machine. Jason was an iconic madman who haunts Camp Crystal Lake and the surrounding area, driven to slaughter anyone he encounters by a burning need to avenge the death of his beloved mother, Pamela Voorhees.

A prolific serial killer, Jason Voorhees has killed well over 200 people, (some of which are completely off screen) over the years.

Jason Voorhees was born in the small town of Crystal Lake on June 13, 1946 to Elias Voorhees and Pamela Voorhees. Though his age is often disputed, as the actress for Pamela created a backstory for her character that put Jason's birthdate in 1944. Jason was afflicted with severe facial deformities, Hydrocephalus, an abnormally large head, and mental disabilities. Raising Jason on her own, Pamela kept her son isolated from the community, not letting him attend school and educating him in their home on the outskirts of Crystal Lake. Due to his mental deficiencies, his education was quite limited, but he learned never to question his mother. He obeyed all his mothers orders, grasping the concept that his life was going to be difficult, if not impossible, without her guidance. His extreme obedience for his mother would manifest itself in a strange way after puberty. Even after she died, Jason could imagine her talking to him from beyond the grave.

In 1957, Pamela was hired by Mr. & Mrs. Christy as a cook for their summer camp. Having no living relatives to board Jason with and unable to afford a nanny, she took him to the camp with her.

Jason had actually been with his mom most of the time instead of other kids, leading to them thinking he wasn’t very smart, so they started bullying him. While being bullied by the other campers, Jason attempted to escape from his tormentors, but the cruel children caught up to him on the dock and threw Jason into the lake where he presumably drowned. His last words were for his mother, then for anyone in earshot to help him. The counselors were supposed to be on the lookout for this type of misbehavior, but were distracted by casual sex.

The Christys ordered the camp closed. Police combed the lake but failed to find Jason's corpse. Interrogation of the counselors led the authorities to conclude Jason's death was accidental and no one was charged with his death. In 1958, it was again open on schedule. Pamela, who was mad with grief, murdered Barry Jackson and Claudette Hayes, the counselors she blamed for Jason's drowning. Pamela was never suspected of the murders, but unlike Jason's drowning, autopsies of the two teenagers clearly showed they died as a result of homicide, and the camp was promptly closed again.

The Christys reopened the camp in 1962, but discovery of arsenic in the water reserves on camp property caused the summer season to be cancelled. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, there were random fires on the property, and the fire department could not come up with a plausible reason. It was never proven, but strongly suggested, that Pamela lived close to the camp and had engaged in these acts of sabotage in order to ensure the camp remained unattended and that no child suffer the same fate as Jason. All of these tragedies led to the abandoned summer camp being nicknamed "Camp Blood" by the locals who came to believe the area was cursed.

40 - Jason Voorhees

Let's be frank: when it comes to chopping up teenagers, Jason may be more creative than Michael Myers, but he has none of the genuine menace or the interesting backstory. In fact, when Jason shows up as a readymade killing machine in Friday The 13th Part 2, it makes next-to-no-sense, given the eve” read more
