JASON VOORHEES | Draw My Life FRIDAY the 13th


Jason Voorhees is the main villain in the
Friday the 13th saga. 12 installments so far, it is one of the most
famous horror series of all times. The first movie was released in 1980. Son of Elias (eláias) and Pamela Voorhees,
he was born on June 13th 1946, and was raised by his mom. When he was 11, he went to the Crystal lake
camp, located in the Massachusetts and New York area, where his mom worked as a cook. Jason suffered from bullying constantly. Other boys would make fun of his mental disabilities
due to his hydrocephalus. They hurt him both physically and mentally. This bullying was so intense, that they chased
Jason until the lake once. Unluckily, he fell in the water and, since
he couldnt swim, drowned. The camp carers werent paying attetion and
ignored Jason’s cries for help. They were more into their parties than into
doing their job. Jasons mom decided to take revenge, starting
the Crystal lake masacre, later on known as Camp Blood. Pamela Vorhees is killed by the only survivor
of the camp massacre. Jason, who had actually survived and hidden
in the forest, sees her mothers death and goes crazy. Since that moment, he swears he’ll complete
his mom’s revenge, and kill anyone who would dare to enter Crystal Lake. 5 years later, a man decides not to listen
to the warnings, and opens a new training camp for young people looking for a summer
job as counselors. At that point, the rumor that Jason has been
seen alive in the surroundings and has attacked people to survive, was spread. Again, a man covering his face with a pillow
case, enters the camp and kills all the students, one by one, without any pity or compassion. From that moment on, Jason will cover his
face with an ice hockey mask. As weapons, he’s used everything: knives,
harpoons, axes, but his main weapon is his machete. Nobody can escape him and his machete. In 2003, a crossover with the saga Nightmare
in Elm Street was made, mixing Jason with the villain Freddy Krugger. This movie is the closure of both original
sagas. However, in 2009 they released a reboot of
the franchise, respecting the original movie and advancing from it. Jason’s character was only suposed to be
on the first Friday the 13th, the idea was starting a franchise with a different villain
each time. But the plan chaged after the movie’s great
success, and Voorhees became the recurrent villain. Throughout the years, Jason has gone through
several transformations from a deformed assassin to a zombie with a super human strenght. He has even been frozen cryogenically and
has woken up 4 hundred years later in a spaceship. There is also a tv series from the late 80s,
several video games and some comics. There is no doubt that Jason hasnt accomplished
his revenge yet, and his thirst for blood hasnt been satisfied yet. Be careful if you go camping – his whisper
is the last thing you hear before dying.
