Jason Voorhees (Character)
from Friday the 13th (1980)

Jason Voorhees, the son of Pamela Voorhees, was born deformed. He lived with his mother at Camp Crystal Lake (his mother was the camp cook), in the city of Crystal Lake. Jason was bullied incessantly until, in 1957, he tried to prove to the bullies that he could swim and drowned in Crystal Lake.

One year later two of the Camp Crystal Lake counselors were murdered and the camp was shut down. Future attempts to reopen the camp were plagued with problems, including poisoned water and unexplained fires.

In 1980 eight new counselors planned to reopen the camp, but ultimately all but one of the new counselors were murdered. The killer is ultimately revealed to be Pamela Voorhees. Pamela is then beheaded by the only survivor, Alice.

The very next year Alice is murdered by an unseen killer in her home. Five years after Alice’s murder a group of counselors return to Camp Crystal Lake for training, and all but 2 are murdered (though one of the survivors cannot be found). The killer turns out to be Jason Voorhees. Full grown and seemingly indestructible, Jason kills to avenge his mother’s death and to carry on her quest to keep the camp closed.

In each new incarnation Jason returns to be an unstoppable killer, only to be “killed” then later resurrected.

To end his torment and achieve a level of closure, Tommy escapes from the hospital and heads to the graveyard where Jason is buried, intending to dig up the body and cremate it.

 Outside of directing FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES, Tom McLoughlin has had a fascinating and eclectic career. For the curious, you should definitely check out Joseph Maddrey’s book “A Strange Idea of Entertainment: Conversations with Tom McLoughlin,” where you’ll learn all about his time as a mime in the 1970s studying in Paris with Marcel Marceau, writing for Dick Van Dyke & Company, playing the killer bear-monster in John Frankenheimer’s PROPHECY and much, much more. But most interesting is his early career as the frontman for the band THE SLOTHS, a 4 piece that opened for everyone from Pink Floyd to Love to The Doors.

In a twist worthy of a horror movie third act, THE SLOTHS have gotten back together after 50 years (!) apart and they’ve just unveiled a new music video for their single “One Way Out” from their album ” You can watch the clip below and read a great interview with McLoughlin how this whole reunion came to be right here.
