Just to get this out of the way, if you think Jason is in this movie then you’re wrong. Jason Vorhees doesn’t show up until the sequel. The film focuses on a group of teenagers that go to Camp Crystal Lake where they are getting trained to be counselors. While they are on their way there people from the town warn them and say that the camp is cursed and to stay away from there. The character “Crazy Ralph” is the one that tries to keep them away from the camp but none of the teenagers believe him and just think that he’s crazy which is why his name is “Crazy Ralph”. The killer watches the teenagers while they are at the camp and just stalks them. Eventually the kids separate which allows the killer to pick them off one by one and the kids don’t even realize they’re in danger until only a few are left. When there is only one person left the killer reveals herself and we find out that she is the mother of Jason Vorhees, who was a boy that drowned at the lake because the counselors were not paying attention. They show us a clip which shows little Jason being pushed into the lake and the counselors doing nothing because they were too busy messing around. We find out that the motive is just a mother that is trying to revenge her son’s death and there is nothing like a mother’s love for her son. I thought that this film was great. It makes you wonder who the killer is and why they are doing these awful things. The ending was amazing, I love how they showed Jason jumping up from the water like he was trying to avenge his mother and it shows you that this is where the legend of Jason is born. If you haven’t seen this movie yet go out and watch it.
