Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.

This was inspired by both Halloween, a blockbuster slasher movie, and Meatballs, a teen sex comedy set in a summer camp, which had come out the year before and were both big hits, focusing on the youth market. See more »
(at around 8 mins) When Annie walks into the coffee shop the waitress is leaning on the counter near the busboy. In the next shot, where Annie ask "How far is it to Camp Crystal Lake.", the waitress is already in the process of turning down the radio. The shots are too sudden for her to already be there.

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!!!!
