The one that started it all. Friday the 13th didn't start off with a hockey mask wearing, machete toating killer. Originally the killer was Pamela Voorhees, an ex-cook at Camp Crystal Lake. She had brought her young boy, Jason, with her to the camp. One evening, while the Camp Counselors were out "making love", Jason wandered into the lake, and drowned.

Now 11 years later, a new group of counselors are preparing the camp to reopen. But Mrs. Voorhees has other plans. She now blames all Counselors for the death of her boy, and today is his birthday.
