This weekend kicks off with Friday the 13th, bringing with it spine-chilling superstitions, fears of bad luck and plenty of haunted happenings around Central Florida.
Why is this particular day considered so unlucky? Its origins, according to History.com , date back to the Last Supper, when 13 guests attended and one of them, Judas, betrayed Jesus. The next day, Good Friday, was the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.
But centuries later, the staying power of this superstition is likely due to the fact that so many people have continued buying into Friday the 13th as an unlucky day. Despite that, some may feel a real energy shift in the coming weeks.
“The next day, Saturday the 14th, we have a solar eclipse and then two weeks after that, the lunar eclipse. So it’s going to be an energetic time,” said Meka Nism , an Orlando-based musician and Shamanic healer who sometimes does psychic readings at the Purple Rose Trading Co. in Cassadaga . “It’s powerful because people have charged a date, or haunted this concept and idea, with negative power.”
How often does the spookiest of days fall in the spookiest of months? The last time October had a Friday the 13th was in 2017; the next time will be in 2028.
Whether you believe in the power of Friday the 13th or not, here are 13 haunted attractions and experiences away from Orlando’s theme parks to explore. Our advice, take safety precautions: Knock on wood, beware of black cats and don’t walk under any ladders.

Friday the 13th unleashes a stream of movies and tv to scare up halloween screams.
Like those people who put up decorations around Labor Day, TV and movies don’t always wait until October to begin dropping horror-themed projects to capitalize on Halloween. But the annual crush of such fare has an auspicious kickoff date with Friday the 13th falling this month, with the modern addition of Hallo-streams to help provoke Hallo-screams.
The last week brought a trio of new horror movies – the low-budget “When Evil Lurks,” and two more based on familiar titles in “The Exorcist: Believer” and “Pet Sematary: Bloodlines” – but that’s just an appetizer for what’s to come. Beyond dedicated channels like Shudder and theme months on various networks, movie channels like TCM and AMC have kicked into Halloween mode, so there’s no shortage of older offerings to go with the newly dead ones.
In terms of fresh arrivals, here’s a by-no-means-comprehensive breakdown of options – including movies, series and documentaries – scheduled to start haunting screens between now and that first knock from trick or treaters, in order of availability:
“The Fall of the House of Usher” (Netflix, October 12): Writer-producer-director Mike Flanagan ( “Midnight Mass,” “The Haunting of Hill House”) is back with a new Netflix limited series , this time a macabre contemporary tale inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
“Goosebumps” (Disney+ and Hulu, October 13): A fresh take on R.L. Stine’s much-adapted book series of spooky stories for kids follows a group of teenagers as they investigate a death from the past, one that might have involved their parents.
“John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams” (Peacock, October 13): The horror director lends his name to an anthology docuseries that highlights creepy true stories, using a mix of documentary elements and extensive reenactments.
“You will never look at your neighbors the same way again,” Carpenter says in a voiceover introduction. Promise?
“The Bell Keeper” (Theaters and on demand, October 13): Stop if you’ve heard this one: A group of friends – who are dumb in the way people in these movies have to be – travel to a remote spot to shoot a documentary that seeks to debunk urban legends by ringing a bell that, the legend says, summons a psychotic killer ( “The Expendables’” Randy Couture).
“The Devil on Trial” (Netflix, October 17): A Netflix documentary goes back to what became known as “The Devil made me do it” case, and a 1981 murder that saw the defendant claim he was possessed by the Devil when the killing happened. As a bonus, the story involves Ed and Lorraine Warren, the demon-hunting couple associated with the Amityville Horror and more recently “The Conjuring” series.
“Living for the Dead” (Hulu, October 18): The ghost-hunter reality-show format gets a new wrinkle in this series produced by the creators of “Queer Eye” and Kristen Stewart, which features a quintet of queer ghost hunters traveling around the US, starting with an “investiGAYtion” (honest, it’s in the press release) of a haunted clown motel.
“Fear the Walking Dead” (AMC, October 22): There’s nothing harder to kill than a TV show with “The Walking Dead” in the title, but after eight seasons, the show’s first spinoff kicks off its final six-episode run a week after “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon” concludes.
“American Horror Stories” (Hulu, October 26): Producer Ryan Murphy is back with the latest “Huluween” edition of his horror anthology series, while the flagship 12th edition of “American Horror Story,” “Delicate,” continues on FX.
“Five Nights at Freddy’s” (theaters and Peacock, October 27): Josh Hutcherson stars as a security guard working the late shift at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria in this movie adaptation of the videogame, which becomes the latest horror flick to simultaneously hit theaters and streaming.
“The Enfield Poltergeist” (Apple TV+, October 27): Like “The Devil on Trial,” this Apple docuseries is a hybrid, using actual audiotapes and interviews – lip-synced by actors – along with reenactments and old clips to tell the story of a famous poltergeist case that unfolded in England in the late 1970s.

Jaycees Feargrounds haunted house opens on Friday the 13th
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Edith Arneson with The Jaycees Feargrounds joined Dakota News Now to discuss the opening of their haunted house on Friday the 13th.

Offbeat Happenings Haunt Friday the 13th (and Beyond)
A haunted tour, an eeky opening, a free vampiro taco, and up at the winchester mystery house the flashlights are flickering., by alysia gray painter • published january 13, 2023 • updated on january 13, 2023 at 9:24 am, what to know.
- There are two Friday the 13ths in 2023, with the first occurring in January (the year's second Friday the 13th lands in October)
- Pasadena Walking Tours is going in search of "Haunted Pasadena" on Jan. 13, 20, and 27
- SugarMynt Gallery in South Pasadena is hosting a free opening of an eerie new art show celebrating "Sympathetic Monsters"
Superstitions hover in our personal ether every day of the year, but they come to the collective and creepy forefront when the 13th day of a particular month lands on that most popular of weekdays.
Whether or not you knock wood or perform other rituals that boast a lucky reputation, you likely know that Friday the 13th has gained something of a haunting aspect, thanks to the famous "Friday the 13th" horror movies and the frightful fact that Halloween-loving fans honor the day by engaging in all sorts of scary shenanigans.
If you're seeking an event or treat that has a bit of an eerie edge as the first of the year's two Friday the 13ths arrives — the second Friday the 13th will occur in October, a perfect fit for the frightful occasion — you can find what you seek around Southern California and beyond.

The "beyond" is the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, which has become synonymous with Friday the 13th. So synonymous, in fact, that self-guided Flashlight Tours are beginning on Friday, Jan. 13, and will continue every Friday through to the end of February.
Around Southern California? You can enjoy a complimentary chicken Vampiro Taco at Solita Tacos & Margaritas in Long Beach through Jan. 15 (you'll need to mention the offer to get yours).
A "Haunted Pasadena" walking tour is popping up in the Crown City — these popular look-arounds do return, again and again, throughout the calendar, if you miss the one on Jan. 13 — and SugarMynt Gallery is hosting a free opening reception for a new art exhibit on Jan.13.

A Trip to Scream Acres: The Haunted House of All Haunted Houses!!!
We’re still well into the Halloween spirit here at the University of Iowa as the holiday is just around the corner! I know personally, I’ve finalized my outfits, and I’m praying that the accessories I ordered will make it in the mail just in the nick of time to celebrate!
While I’ve mentioned before how much I love dressing up, something else I love about Halloween besides the candy and costumes are haunted houses, and even though I don’t do them often, I’m always down to go with a group of friends. So, when one of my best friends, Faith, texted our group chat asking if anyone would be interested in doing one this month, I immediately said yes!
On Friday the 13th (yes, we literally planned to go on that specific date!), seven of my friends and I piled into two cars and made the trek over to Atkins. This specific night was insanely rainy, and I remember feeling like we wouldn’t make it by how fast the rain was coming down. Luckily, my friend, Nich, is an excellent driver and he plowed us through the interstate until we took a right turn off of it.
From there, the last fifteen minutes of the drive really put us in an eerie mood. To get to Scream Acres, we had to drive past miles of cornfields and abandoned farms. There were no lights or life to be seen. It was just our cars and the darkness for what felt like an eternity until, at last, we turned into a cornfield with a handful of massive lights illuminating something in the center. Literally, in the middle of nowhere, Scream Acres stood.
During the car ride, we theorized who would be the person to lead our group through the haunted house. A couple of my friends made claims it would be me and I agreed, so long as I didn’t go first into the haunted house called Slaughterhouse. Of course, that’s exactly what happened, and I hauled my friend Faith up to the front with me as we ascended the stairs.
Even though the actors aren’t allowed to touch you, that didn’t stop them from getting pretty close! Very early on in Slaughterhouse, Faith and I took off screaming as an actor with a chainsaw came barreling toward us. It was terrifying! Not to mention that the blood and gore inside looked so realistic, and the twists and turns of the house were really easy to get lost in. Luckily, we all made it out in one piece and headed to the next stop.
The next house was called Carnival, and for this house, we got special 3D glasses that made the walls of the house waver and pop as you walked through. This was super cool in theory, but it made the experience ten times scarier when real people would pop out of their hiding places to scare you. Luckily, I didn’t go first for this house, but I am ashamed to say that I was scared out of my mind when a couple holograms (yes, holograms) popped up out of nowhere. For me, that was wayyy scarier than any of the actors!!!
Because of the rain, the park ended up closing the cornfield (I was sooo disappointed since this was the one I was most excited about!), so instead, we got to go inside another one of the houses we had already gone through. My friends and I decided to go through Slaughterhouse again which was just as scary as the first time, especially because at the very end, a massive guy with a machete came out of nowhere to chase me and my friends. Just the sound of the blade scraping against the ground was enough to send us running!
Overall, though, it was a fitting end to a great night!
Tired, wet, and thirsty, we got some hot cocoa, warmed up inside, and bought some homemade food at the marketplace before going back to our cars. I was exhausted, soaking wet, and mud-slicked, but I hadn’t had so much fun in a long time. I remember turning to my friend, Faith, and telling her that we have to do this again next year which seriously cannot come fast enough!
For those of you who want to do something fun this holiday season with your friends, I would definitely recommend heading over to Scream Acres for a night. It’s scary, fast-paced, and an overall blast, and I hope that you have just as much fun as I did if you decide to make the trip out there!
Good luck and Happy Halloween!!!

Friday the 13th's spooky origins explored at New York City's The Merchant House
By Steve Overmyer
Updated on: October 13, 2023 / 8:08 PM / CBS New York
NEW YORK - Friday the 13th has long held an air of mystery and superstition.
It's a day that has always given their fair share of unease. But is it just a day that represents our fears, or is there something else at play?
To find out, CBS New York's Steve Overmyer spent a night at the most haunted house in New York City.
Outside The Merchant's House on Fourth Street, the air is filled with anticipation and a touch of mystery. Overmyer embarked on a journey of spectral discovery.
Dan Sturges is the Merchant House's in-house paranormal investigator.
"And if you're in the right time and quiet enough, maybe these walls will whisper to you?" Overmyer asked.
"Yeah. You know, this house has been very generous with activity," Sturges said.
In fact, ever since renovations on the house began in 1936, people have had haunted encounters.
"In 1936, a worker sees a woman walking down the stairs wearing a brown dress drinking a cup of tea. Cut to 2018, someone might witness the same woman wearing a brown dress drinking a cup of tea," Sturges said. "And it's still happening. Up until a few weeks ago, somebody had an experience."
"A few weeks ago?" Overmyer asked.
"A few weeks ago. I think it was a child saw a man in Seabury's room right above us," Sturges said.
Seabury Tredwell was the original owner of the house. He passed away in 1865. The frequent sighting have made The Merchant's House a hotbed for paranormal experts, and even ghost tours, which begin on Friday the 13th.
"Maybe somebody coming in with a little but of fear of Friday the 13th. Maybe that energy might stir something up at The Merchant's House," Sturges said.
Friday the 13th is a day that evokes dread. It's a history that goes back centuries.
"The fear of Friday the 13th has been around for a very long time. Friday has always been a bad luck day," Sturges said.
It's said to have started in the 1300s, when King Phillip of France executed the knights templar on Friday the 13th.
"In the 19th century, it started to become more of a superstitious holiday. You know, 'Don't walk under a ladder on Friday the 13th. Look out for black cats,'" Sturges said.
Along with Diana Navarro, a spiritual crossing guard, Overmyer went on an investigation of The Merchant's House.
"In the paranormal world of parapsychology, this is an EVP session. That stands for electronic voice phenomenon, which are anomalous voices that aren't heard at the time of the recording, but upon review... we might hear a voice," Sturges said.
While Overmyer didn't hear anything, somewhere around 4 a.m. Sturges played back some recorded audio of what sounded like children crying.
Friday the 13th has become a focal point for anxieties - a symbolic representation of our fears, and it continues to captivate our imaginations and reminds us of the mysteries that lie within our own minds.
The Merchant's House revealed just a fragment of its secrets in this story. But much more was uncovered during their overnight investigation at the most haunted residence in New York.
Get the full experience in our Snapshot New York Halloween Special debuting Friday, October 27 at 10 p.m., streaming only on CBS News New York .

A Haunted House prepares for Friday the 13th
Each year the haunted house is open during the fall season, but Michelle Graham, the Haunt Manager and Actor Coordinator says that tonight will be a busy one.
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) - Today is Friday the 13th! What is better than spending the spooky day at a haunted house. Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum presents this year’s haunted house, Torment.
“We haven’t had a Friday the 13th in a little while so were really excited to see the people that are going to come out and enjoy this spooky day with us,” Graham said. “We’re expecting quite a lot of visitors in the main building and the haunted house this evening.”
It takes about 30 minutes to get through the entire thing, but there is no need to panic. The haunted house is a no touch haunt, so you can guarantee a fun time. It is said that most people make it all the way to the end. Graham says tonight will definitely be one to remember.
“You have 80 to 100 scare actors working in there tonight,” Graham said. “We rehearse for a couple of months before we open to the public, so we make sure we put on a really good scary show for everyone that comes to visit.”
The attraction has been packed since it has opened, Graham says that some days are already sold out. They have extended the operating days and now will close for the season on November 4th.

Friday the 13th: A spooky twist to the Halloween spirit
Posted: October 13, 2023 | Last updated: October 13, 2023
CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Brace yourselves for an eerily exciting day, Friday the 13th, a day steeped in both fear and fascination!
As we tread into the heart of spooky season, this date takes center stage with its own brand of mystique, blending seamlessly with the enchantment of Halloween!
The origins of Friday the 13th are cloaked in historical whispers and superstitions. This ominous date is a confluence of two powerful symbols of mysticism: Friday, a day traditionally linked to supernatural occurrences, and the number 13, a number often associated with luck both good and bad. The intertwining of these two elements has woven an intricate web of folklore and beliefs across cultures.
In Norse mythology, Friday is linked to the goddess Frigg, from whom the day derives its name. In Christianity, Friday holds an ominous connotation as it was traditionally associated with the day of Christ’s crucifixion. The number 13, on the other hand, has a varied history. Some cultures believe it to be a sign of good luck, while others deem it quite the opposite.
Spooky Synchrony with Halloween
This year, the convergence of Friday the 13th with the Halloween season amplifies the thrill. It’s a day where the curtain between our world and the supernatural realm is said to be at its thinnest, allowing for a heightened sense of spookiness and intrigue. Ghost stories, haunted houses, and horror movie marathons may just be the order of the day!
Making the Most of the Day

BuzzFeed ranked this Utah haunted house No. 3 in the nation. Here’s why its founder says that it’s ‘alive’
Founder rob dunfield explained what sets fear factory apart from other haunted houses, how he got into the business and what changes people can expect in coming years.
Southeast corner of Fear Factory 2023 in Salt Lake City.
The founder of Fear Factory, Rob Dunfield, told me on Friday night that this Salt Lake City haunted house recently experienced an earthquake. It ruptured the tower and cracked the foundation. He explained that ever since then, strange rumblings have been happening. Upon investigation, he found that the foundation was cracked open, and a huge living thing was lurking behind the wall, feeding off of fear. He said, “The factory is alive.”

Fear Factory opened in 2011 and is one of the biggest haunted houses in Utah, with six buildings and two underground passageways, and stretching six stories high. It was ranked the No. 3 best haunted house in the world by BuzzFeed and top 10 in the U.S. by USA Today .
Dunfield believes that Fear Factory’s impressive size and methodology is what sets it apart from other haunted houses.
He explained the haunted factory’s route: Customers walk all the way to the top of the tower (six floors), across the catwalk, cross the ceiling of the entire building and go back down across the main floor. It has both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Fear Factory focuses on giving each person a psychological experience by playing to phobias. As I went through the haunted house, I saw clowns, dentists, height, darkness, small spaces, references to being buried alive and hospitals. Dunfield said to expect more to be added over time. He said, “We have a little section of spidery places, but no big areas of big bugs or snakes. Maybe we’ll put some real bugs and snakes in there next year.”
Some nights bring in bigger crowds than others, making it difficult to have one consistent approach to scaring. On the weekend, the Factory depends more heavily on jump scares, while on nights with a slower crowd, costumed staff can have more dialogue with customers.

How did Rob Dunfield get into the Halloween business?
There’s no question: Dunfield is a successful businessman. The lines are long and the customers are still happy over a decade since Fear Factory opened. However, Dunfield didn’t go to school for the Halloween business. He studied exercise physiology. When he’s not expanding operations in the bug department at Fear Factory, he runs Holladay Health and Fitness .
Dunfield explained that while his holiday business seems like an unusual addition to his professional life, his passion for Halloween began at a young age. His father, Bob Dunfield, put on haunted houses during the 1970s and ’80s while Rob was growing up. Bob Dunfield was the chairman of the March of Dimes Haunted House, which operated from the early 1980s until 2015 to fundraise for women’s health and pregnancies.
The family did Halloween “for about 20 years until I went to college, and then later fast-forward about 10 or 15 years, we wanted to do haunted houses again. So we did this,” Dunfield explained.
I asked if Bob had been through Fear Factory, and Dunfield said that his father was there that night. He’s very proud and “he loves coming down,” Dunfield said. He goes a few nights a year.
Though Bob Dunfield led operations for other haunted houses for many years, these days he prefers to just come and observe.

Fear Factory is a family business
Since Rob Dunfield followed in his father’s footsteps, I asked if he thinks one of his daughters will carry on the Dunfield Halloween legacy. He laughed.
“I don’t know. I have five girls,” he said. “They love coming, and they’ve all worked here over the years in different things from acting to concessions, ticketing, and now mostly they just like coming here with boys and going through.”
His sister worked concessions that night, and a few other friends and close family members work various jobs and his wife does customer service.
Dunfield explained that his wife “learned it on the fly. She is a genius. She went and worked for Comic Con for a while and did a lot of their marketing and their promotions and a lot of their HR stuff, and it gave her a lot of background, and it’s helped us a lot.”
When Dunfield isn’t busy with administration, he enjoys dressing up and helping out the scare crew. He usually dresses up at least a couple times a year.
Fear Factory reviews: Here’s what people thought
I went through the haunted house with a father and his teenage son whom I hadn’t met before. The dad told me his son absolutely loved everything scary. At some points during the course, the dad would fall a little behind, and his son would wait behind a wall to scare him. I asked them at the end what they thought of the experience, and the dad said he gave it a 10/10 as it was and a 12/10 with his son’s jump scares.
In the selfie section by the entrance, I talked to a couple who brought their teenage boys to Fear Factory. I asked what the parents’ favorite part was, and the mom laughed and said, “We just like hearing them scream.”
Another woman told me her favorite section was toward the end of the experience walking through a small, brightly lit corridor. It was so filled with fog, you couldn’t see your hand outstretched in front of you.
My favorite part of the whole experience was the circus section. Before entering that section, a clown hands out 3D glasses. The bright neon paint jumps out at you as you wander your way through the maze.
How much are tickets and how long will Fear Factory be open?
Fear Factory will be open until Oct. 31, and opens again on Friday the 13th weekends throughout the year. Tickets can be bought on the company’s website , and general admission starts at $29.99.

Don’t freak out, but Friday the 13th 2023 is just around the corner! With all the negative hype surrounding this infamous day, you might count yourself lucky that October 13 will be the las time the 13th day of the month will land on a Friday this year. If you’re considering calling out of work and shielding yourself from all the “bad luck” that Friday the 13th inevitably brings, let me be the one to calm you down. Chances are, you’ve been lied to all your life about Friday the 13th, because I bet no one’s ever told you that it’s also considered the day of the “Divine Feminine”, making it a time to celebrate everything it means to be in touch with your inner goddess.
You’ve probably been told that Friday the 13th is something to be afraid of, but I bet no one’s ever explained to you why. According to Phillips Stevens, Jr., associate professor of anthropology at the University at Buffalo, the infamy surrounding the number 13 can be traced back to the Bible . He explains that this pessimistic association is rooted in the Last Supper, because there were 13 people present at the table and it took place the night before Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified. Since then, the idea of Friday the 13th being nothing but bad luck has spread like wildfire, solidifying itself as an enduring superstition in Western society.
However, there’s another side to Friday the 13th that needs to be talked about a lot more. In fact, it should bring you a flood of relief, especially if you consider yourself to be a witch or a feminist ! Instead of being a day of negativity and suffering, Friday the 13th is also a day brimming with creativity and romantic energy, making it a powerful time to manifest your dreams. It’s a day to celebrate your femininity and to honor the side of you that is nurturing, sensitive, emotional, and heartfelt.
Friday the 13th is also considered the day of the Divine Feminine.
There’s just as much reason to believe that Friday the 13th is something to look forward to. After all, in astrology, Friday is the day of Venus—goddess of love, friendship, and luxury —making it the perfect time to do things that make you feel stylish, beautiful, and alive with romance. According to Tanaaz Chubb, creator of Forever Conscious , the goddess Venus “joins us at the end of the week to honor the days gone by and to remind us that it is important to rest, relax and play. ” Chubb also explains that the number 13 is “the number of death and rebirth, creation, fertility, and blood.” In fact, there are 13 moon cycles in any given year, which supports the theory that the number 13 may be powerful, but that doesn’t make it inherently “bad”.
If you’re feeling nervous about the upcoming Friday the 13th, don’t sweat it. Instead of letting the negative energy ruin the start to your weekend, why not subvert patriarchal traditions and use this day to celebrate everything that it means to be you? Join forces with your fellow witches and divine femmes and create some magic together . Let this powerful day take on a whole new meaning for you.
These 4 Zodiac Signs Will Feel Friday the 13th the Most
Although Friday the 13th is not always a day of destruction in the realm of astrology, it could be considered that way this time around. After all, a solar eclipse in Libra is scheduled to take place just one day later, on October 14 at 1:55 p.m. ET. With that being said, here are the four zodiac signs who will be feeling the intensity of Friday the 13th’s astrology the most:
Friday the 13th will test your courage this year, Aries. After all, it’s happening just before a solar eclipse in Libra, which is your opposite sign. This could bring oppositional forces into your life, as this eclipse will land in your seventh house of partnerships, as well as allies and enemies. There’s a fine line between love and hate, and during this year’s final Friday the 13th, you may find yourself crossing over that threshold. Beware of monsters that disguise themselves as lovers. Read your full monthly horoscope here .
The final Friday the 13th of 2023 will be a big one for you, Cancer. You might feel like a crab without its shell, as a solar eclipse in Libra will be lying in wait. Landing in your fourth house of home, family, and subconscious programming, this eclipse could force you to leave behind your comfort zone and embrace a new understanding of love, security, and belonging. In other words, if your house is haunted, it’s time to cleanse the energy. Read your full monthly horoscope here .
They say mirrors are haunted, as they are a portal to another dimension. And during the last Friday the 13th of 2023, you may be facing your reflection and coming to terms with the consequences of your life decisions. You may be searching for a bad guy to blame all your problems on, but a solar eclipse in Libra is arriving to show you that it’s time to take some accountability. You don’t need to be your own worst enemy, so let go of self-destructive tendencies. Read your full monthly horoscope here .
Your life is being put on display, as Friday the 13th may encourage people to gossip about you or scrutinize your work. After all, it lands just one day before a solar eclipse in Libra kickstarts a new era in your 10th house of career and reputation, forcing you to take authority over your life. Haters and naysayers may be descending on your castle like flying monkeys, but you have the power to protect your stronghold. The harder you work, the luckier you’ll get.

The main killers Pamela Voorhees and the later killer Jason, mother and son
The Friday the 13th franchise is a series of slasher films, usually following the storyline of Jason Voorhees , an (later) undead serial killer who uses various weapons to kill teenagers under the spiritual direction of his dead mother Pamela . In his iconic form he wears a hockey mask, which he gained in the third film, he uses a potato sack in part 2. His first appearance in the franchise.
The franchise itself has expanded to include a television show, comic books, novels, and other tie-in merchandise.

- 2.1 Freddy vs Jason
- 2.2 Friday the 13th (remake)
Original Films [ ]
Overview [ ].
In Camp Crystal Lake , a boy named Jason Voorhees drowns in Crystal Lake on a Friday the 13th. His mother blames the camp counselors because they were not paying any attention. She kills and slaughters both of them a year later, on another Friday the 13th. Camp Crystal Lake reopens years later and Mrs. Voorhees kills all the camp counselors in cold blood, except for Alice, who fights Mrs. Voorhees and kills her by decapitation.
Jason Voorhees appears years later, apparently having survived his drowning, and kills Alice out of revenge. Later, he goes to a camp near Camp Crystal Lake (also known as Camp Blood), and kills several camp counselors. He is seen wearing a burlap sack over his head. One camp counselor, Ginny, discovers who he is and eventually stabs him in the shoulder with his machete. He survives and (maybe) kills Paul, the other camp counselor. Ginny is found and taken to the hospital by the paramedics.
Jason hides in the barn at Higgins Haven, a ranch where Chris "Christine" Higgins (who was once attacked by Jason) and several other people go. Eventually, Jason kills Shelly by slashing his throat and takes his hockey mask, then butchers everyone else except Chris, who hits him in the head with an ax, hangs him, and stabs him before he collapses, seemingly dead. She has a hallucination where the decomposing corpse of Mrs. Voorhees pulls her under the water, and is later seen acting mentally disturbed.
Jason is taken to the morgue, but is shown to have survived and escapes, killing two people in the process. He attacks another camp where Tommy Jarvis, his sister Trish, and their mother live. Jason eventually starts killing all the people at the camp, leaving only Tommy and Trish. Here, his face is revealed to be even uglier than before. Tommy hits Jason in the head with a machete, and then hacks him to death.
Several years later, Tommy Jarvis is sent to a halfway house, having nightmares and hallucinations about Jason. When a patient named Joey is murdered by another (who is arrested), his father Roy Burns impersonates Jason Voorhees and starts killing everyone around the area as revenge. Eventually, he is knocked out a window by Tommy and impaled on a tractor harrow, and his true identity is revealed. Tommy unwittingly resurrects Jason at the cemetery, and stronger than ever, he resumes his reign of terror and kills several camp counselors. Sheriff Garris does not believe Tommy when he says that Jason is back (though his daughter Megan does), and blames him for the murders and arrests him. However, when Jason attacks Camp Crystal Lake (which has been renamed), they go after him, and later Tommy and Megan do the same. Garris and his two cops are killed by Jason, and Tommy chains Jason to the bottom of Crystal Lake. Jason tries to drown him, but is supposedly killed when Megan uses a boat's propeller blade to grind his throat up.
Sometime later, Tina Shepherd, a girl with telekinetic powers, unwittingly causes her father to drown in Camp Crystal Lake. Years later, she returns there to see Dr. Crews, who is actually trying to exploit her powers rather than help her. Tina tries to resurrect her father, but instead reawakens Jason. Several people are at the lake to celebrate the birthday of someone named Michael, but he is killed by Jason, and so is everyone else except for Tina and a boy named Nick. Tina uses her telekinesis to fight Jason, and eventually resurrects her father, who chains him to the bottom of Crystal Lake again.
When a cruiser's anchor catches on a power cable, Jason is reawakened and kills the two people inside. A class is taking a cruiser to New York, but Jason stows aboard. Rennie keeps on seeing Jason Voorhees's kid form, and once Jason tried to pull her under the water of Crystal Lake. Jason kills several crew members before the survivors reach New York, but all are killed except for Rennie and Sean (and the dog, Toby), who run from him and into the sewers. A chase scene ensues, ending with the sewers being flooded with toxic waste, dissolving Jason and reverting him back into a little kid.
Jason somehow manages to return to his original form, and is set up by the FBI, who are now aware of his existence and blow him to bits. His heart remains intact, and hypnotizes a coroner to eat it, possessing him. He continues to possess people, killing them in the process, all the time killing other victims. It is revealed that in this situation, he can only be reborn through another Voorhees (his sister Diana Kimble, whom he kills, her daughter Jessica, or Jessica's baby), and only another Voorhees can permanently kill him with a special dagger. Jason is reborn through Diana's corpse, and is eventually killed when Jessica stabs him in the heart with the dagger, and Jason is pulled into Hell.
In 2008, the government unsuccessfully tries to execute him, so instead they freeze him. In the process, a woman named Rowan is also frozen. In 2455, both are discovered and taken to a ship bound for Earth 2. They are unfrozen. Jason is thought to be dead, but wakes up and kills several people. Eventually, Kay Em, an android, fights Jason and blows off several of his limbs, including his head. However, a device tries to heal him and turns him into a metal cyborg, referred to in the credits as Uber Jason. The ship is eventually destroyed, with Rowan, Tsunaron, and Kay Em getting off safely. Jason survives the explosion and goes after them but is knocked away by Sergeant Brodski, and both are knocked toward Earth 2 and are burned up in its atmosphere. They land in a lake, by which time all that remains (or at least all we see) is Jason's metal hockey mask.

Freddy vs jason [ ].
Freddy Krueger is stuck in Hell, so he disguises himself as Mrs. Voorhees and resurrects Jason to kill for him so people will think Freddy killed them, and therefore remember him (as he cannot return from Hell if no one is afraid of him). However, once Freddy returns, and is strong enough to kill again, he finds a hard time killing his victims because Jason keeps on killing (as he usually has a higher kill count than Freddy). Eventually, Freddy Krueger possesses someone to inject Jason with tranquilizer so he can kill him in his dreams, but Jason proves difficult for even Freddy to kill. Lori Campbell and Will Rollins take him to Camp Crystal Lake so he can fight Freddy. Lori pulls Freddy out of the dream world and Jason fights him. Both suffer serious injuries in the bloody battle, and Jason takes a huge beating from Freddy with both his and Jason's weapons. Eventually Jason pulls Freddy's arm off and stabs him with it, and Lori decapitates him. Both sink into Crystal Lake, though Jason emerges very much alive, and carries Freddy's severed head out of the lake.
