So it’s Friday the 13th!! What better way to celebrate than to pay homage to the king of the day: Jason Voorhees. That poor lad who drowned at the worst summer camp in the world-Camp Crystal Lake-has become a horror icon for the ages. Donning his hockey mask and wielding his slashing implement of the day (my fave is the classic machete), Jason chi-chi, ha-ha’ed into our hearts and nightmares, leaving an unhealed scab that horror fans will pick at forever. For your viewing pleasure, here are some clips (in no specific order, I just dug them) from his creepy slasher career (my favourites were Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan and Freddy VS. Jason):
Be it at Camp Crystal Lake, in space or in a thriving metropolis like Manhattan, Jason defies time and logic with his tenacious blood lust fueled by revenge. Let’s raise a glass to the one and only king of #13 because he will live on forever! Please let me know what your faves were in Mr. Voorhees illustrious career!
