A group of camp counselors are stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp which was the site of a child's drowning and a grisly double murder years before.
If you listen closely Jason is making a strange screaming sound in the dream sequence as he jumps from the water.
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.

(at around 52 mins) When Steve gets picked up by the officer, the officer turns on the police lights to show where the car is. In long shots the lights are on but when we see the close up of Steve talking to the officer the lights are off. And then back on again but the officer turns them off as they drive away.
We see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen and crashing into and smashing a pane of glass.
Later, home video prints of the film were re-edited to the "R-rated" version found on USA DVD, and premium channels as is known today. This is because of an incident in Massachusetts where a man killed family members in the late 80's, "Friday the 13th" style.
