* '''''Film/FridayThe13thPartIII'' (1982)''' -- Jason stalks and kills teenagers at a vacation home on Crystal Lake. You'd think people would know better by now. Originally shot in 3-D, the film randomly features shots of various things flying towards the camera -- along with a couple of (very cool) three-dimensional kills. Jason puts on the hockey mask in this film -- and this film also marks the point where [[VillainProtagonist your sympathies might start going towards the killer]].

** The only problem with that theory? It's a pretty easy case to make for 2, 3 and 4 all happening over a weekend. News might travel fast, but not that fast.

** He tried killing Tommy in ''The Final Chapter'' (though they later tried to justify it by claiming Tommy was ''just barely'' older than Jason's no kill cut-off point) and Rennie in a childhood flashback (which may have been a hallucination) in ''Part VIII'' though. He might have killed Muffin the dog from ''Part II'', the ending [[GainaxEnding is somewhat confusing]]. On the other hand, in ''Part VI'', he stands in the middle of a cabin filled with running, screaming children and never even takes a swing.

** Not really confusing, unless there are two identical looking dogs with two identical looking collars and spangles wandering in the woods far from town.

''Friday the 13th'', a VillainBasedFranchise of {{Slasher Movie}}s (with twelve installments and [[StealthPun a thirteenth]] in development, now sadly cancelled), revolves around a hockey-masked wearing, machete-wielding, PsychopathicManchild Zombie named Jason Voorhees. Local legends say Jason drowned at Camp Crystal Lake due to the negligence of the teenage camp counselors, and decades later, the lake and surrounding campgrounds -- considered "cursed" by locals -- become the setting for a series of mass murders staged on or around Friday the 13th (Jason's birthday).

* ''Crystal Lake Memories. The Complete History of Friday the 13th'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Very similar to ''Never Sleep Again'', this definitive documentary gives in-depth information on every movie in the franchise (reboot included) and the TV series and touches upon nearly everything Jason-related. It lasts [[UpToEleven six and half hours]] and is narrated by Corey Feldman.

Feldman, and interviews as many cast and crew members involved in all of the films as they were possibly able to get in contact with.

* MenacingStrollMenacingStroll: Jason has the delightfully paradoxical ability to outrun any of his victims without actually moving faster than a slow lumber. In certain movies it borders on outright teleportation.

* AnachronismStew: Through WordOfGod and careful attention to dates and mentions of the passage of time, such as Tommy aging 5 years between 4 and 5, and Jason apparently spending 10 years trapped in the lake between 7 and 8, the series inadvertently took place in the early 2000's in 1988.

* '''''[[Film/FridayThe13th2009 Friday the 13th]]'' (2009)''' -- This film marks the starting point for the ContinuityReboot of the series; if you've read this far, you already know the plot. Essentially a loose remake of the plot of the first 3 movies, with the first movie being essentially summarized in 60 seconds of the opening credits. The filmmakers intended to give Jason more personality and emphasize a "menacing survivalist" nature, as Jason had numerous traps and secret passages set up around Crystal Lake. A sequel was in DevelopmentHell, but as Warner gave the rights back to Paramount, it seems to be on its way...but that was cancelled in February 2017 due to the failure of Paramount's latest horror film release, ''Film/{{Rings}}''.
