Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The exact circumstances of how Jason survived his childhood drowning. While ''Part 2'' presents it as a case of NeverFoundTheBody, ''Jason Lives'' also presents the theory that Jason did indeed drown and has always been a supernatural entity.

* FollowTheLeader: Original is one of the first slasher films that came in the wake of ''Film/{{Halloween 1978}}''. It also inspired lots of {{Slasher Movie}}s set in summer camps and backwoods.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Crystal Lake is supposed to be in upstate New York. Which means that you shoot any scenes regarding Crystal Lake in places like California, Texas, Alabama, and Georgia. At least the first two movies shoot in New Jersey and Connecticut, respectively.

* '''''Film/FridayThe13thTheFinalChapter'' (1984)''' -- Jason stalks and kills teenagers at a rental house near Crystal Lake. The police really should look into this. This film became a SeriesFauxnale when it performed so well at the box office that the series continued despite the intent of the producers to end the franchise. ''Final Chapter'' features Corey Feldman as a young Tommy Jarvis, Crispin Glover as one of the ill-fated teenagers, a lot of gratuitous nudity, arguably the best gore in the series (courtesy of special effects genius Creator/TomSavini), and a ton of NarmCharm. If you want to watch a SoBadItsGood teen comedy that morphs into a SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome horror flick, you want this movie.

* '''''[[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. (Does his kill count get a reboot, too?) 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, [[Rings]].

''Friday the 13th'', a VillainBasedFranchise of {{Slasher Movie}}s (with twelve installments and [[StealthPun a thirteenth]] in development), 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).

* ImprovisedWeaponUser: Oh, where to begin... While prevalent in all of the novels, Jason really gets creative in "Carnival of Maniacs", in which he uses,at first he kills one of the three goths by shoving the kid's cellphone down his throat. But it's his attack at the music video set that plays this trope to a T. He uses a crowbar,arc light, a cymbal off a drum kit, an keyboard plug, headphone cord,a mic stand, and his own hockey mask to deadly effect.
