If you are a little superstitious, you know that you have to be extra cautious on Friday the 13th. Other people associate it with the title of the classic horror movie that featured Jason Voorhees who was popular with horror moviegoers in the Eighties. If you thought about donning Jason's infamous hockey mask for Halloween, here are some costume ideas!
Fans often forget that the original killer of the first Friday the 13th movie back in 1980 was Jason's mother, Mrs Voorhies (played by actress Betsy Palmer). In the first film, Jason was only a boy seen in flashbacks and in Alice's "dream" towards the end. He made his official appearance as an adult in the sequel where he murders a new camp of teenagers at Crystal Lake about two months after the original murder spree by his mother. The movie continued the financial success of the franchise which produced a total of 12 movies being released between 1980 and 2009. Paramount initially had plans for a new sequel to the movie franchise but those plans were canceled in 2017 after the failed box office performance of The Ring sequel, disappointing many fans.
