In 1957, a young boy named Jason drowns in a lake near Camp Crystal Lake. The next year, two counselors are murdered. In 1980, a descendant of the original owners reopens Camp Crystal Lake with some counselors' help. The counselors gets killed one by one by a mysterious person. Could it be Jason, out for revenge?Written by
The company Elston Oil Supply actually exists in real life: it's now Todd/Elston Oil, a gas station off US Interstate 46 in Netcong, NJ. The address in the film is real as Waterloo Rd runs between Hackettstown and Byram Township and uses a Stanhope ZIP code. The number, which uses a Stanhope area code, is still in existence too and the owner still gets calls from time to time. See more »
(at around 1h 2 mins) When Sgt. Tierney is giving Steve a ride, he gets a call on the radio. As he replaces the receiver, he flips on the lights. In the next shot, the lights are off and are turned back on again. See more »

The film was released internationally by Warner Bros. and, as such, is the logo that opens the film as opposed to the Paramount logo as seen in the US version. The running time is slightly different because of this. See more »

Friday the 13th sets off when teenage camp counselers travel to Camp Crystal Lake, which is known as Camp Blood. The reason for its name is that many camp counselers have been murdered there over the years. Many of the townspeople believe it is the ghost of a boy named Jason who drowned in the lake years before while the camp counselers had no idea he was drowning. Ever since then camp counselers have been getting slaughtered, so that is why it got the name "Camp Blood". When all the counselers arrive a week before the camp is open, they are there to fix the camp up. But then a terrible storm hits and the counselers are getting killed left and right. Who will survive the night at Camp Blood?
The movie itself is scary and enjoyable yet full of terror. Also, I was surprised to see Kevin Bacon in this film, and he did a great job! Friday the 1th is a classic. I give it a 10 out of 10!!!!
