Manage episode 270127196 series 1836276
It all started with a boy, a poor boy and a single mother, who was ultimately out of her depths when it came to raising said boy in a healthy and happy environment. That young boy would grow up to devastate countless lives; that young boy's name is Jason Voorhees. The reign of terror that both Jason and his mother, Pamela, would bring to the town of Crystal Lake would be the thing of Legends - and nightmares.
When Jason was but a young boy his mother took a job as a cook at the local Camp Crystal Lake, however, while there Jason had a run in with some bullies, who ultimately chased him off the end of a dock. Jason was presumed to have drowned in that lake, something his mother would never be able to forgive. After an investigation, the death of young Jason was determined to be an accident, and all parties involved were simply let off the hook.
Years later Pamela took her revenge on the new crop of counselors, at the camp by murdering several of them. Perhaps in a bit of poetic justice, one of the survivors was able to fight off the enraged Voorhees mother and eventually decapitate her. However, one thing that was unbeknownst to anybody is that Jason didn't drown in the lake that fateful day, but rather was able to swim to safety where he lived off the land for years. He also happened to witness his mothers gruesome demise.
That's just the start of the events that would occur in the following years. So be sure to listen to part one of the Jason Voorhees drama.
