A group of camp counselors are stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which, years before, was the site of a child's drowning.
Willie Adams was a crew member for the film. Although he spent most his time working behind the camera, he played the male counsellor in the 1958 scene, and holds the unique distinction of being the first murder victim in the Friday the 13th franchise.
You see, Jason was my son, and today is his birthday...
(at around 16 mins) As Steve asks Alice if she wants to leave, he puts his hand up onto the roof. In the next shot, his arm is down.
We see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen and crashing into and smashing a pane of glass.
