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.
Ari Lehman, who had previously auditioned for Sean S. Cunningham's Manny's Orphans (1978), failing to get the part, was determined to land the role of Jason Voorhees. According to Lehman, he went in very intense and afterward Cunningham told him he was perfect for the part.
He neglected to mention that downtown they call this place Camp Blood.
Marcie: Next, they're going to tell us there are poisonous snakes in the outhouse and crocodiles in the lake.
Jack: The crocodiles are in the cabin.
(at around 49 mins) Outside the diner, it is obviously a fire hose being sprayed back and forth to create the "rain."
We see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen and crashing into and smashing a pane of glass.
