Happy Friday the 13th everyone!! I hope you had a good day that is usually marked with bad luck. There are many superstitions surrounding this day. There are movies starring the infamous serial killer Jason Voorhees. So in honor of this day I have looked up a few facts on Friday the 13th movie franchise!
- There are two Friday the 13th movies where Jason is not the killer.
- The original killer at the start of the franchise was Jason’s mother, Pamela.
- Jason did not adapt his trademark hockey mask until the third movie, he first wore a burlap sack
- Jason’s father is Elias Voorhees, information can be found on fan sites. This information was brought up in Jason Goes to Hell.
- There are two child actors who have portrayed Jason, Ari Lehman (Friday the 13th) and Tim Mirkovich (Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan).
- Not every movie takes place on Friday the 13th. A lot of the movies pick up right where the last movie ended. So, technically it would be impossible for there to be more than one Friday the 13th in one week. (sad I know)
