Main Plot

A group of camp counselors trying to reopen a summer camp called Crystal Lake, which has a grim past, are stalked by a mysterious killer.


  • Betsy Palmer's character, Mrs. Voorhees, is the killer seeking revenge at Camp Crystal Lake in the movie Friday the 13th.
  • Adrienne King played the character Alice Hardy, who survives the attacks of the killer in Friday the 13th.
  • Jeannine Taylor's character in Friday the 13th has a small role as a camp counselor who falls victim to the killer.


In the ending of Friday the 13th, the sole survivor, Alice, is attacked by the supposedly dead Mrs. Voorhees. Alice manages to decapitate her, but as the morning dawns, she finds herself alone in a canoe on the lake. Suddenly, a decomposing child version of Jason Voorhees emerges from the water and pulls her underwater. Alice wakes up in a hospital, realizing it was just a nightmare. As she recounts her story to the police, the camera pans to the lake, suggesting the terror may not be over.
