This movie isn’t anything like cheer camp! Friday the 13th takes place at Camp Crystal Lake, where a bunch of young coed counselors have arrived for camp training before the kids show up for the summer. What they don’t know is that someone is planning on killing off each counselor one-by-one, to avenge the death of little Jason Voorhees. See, Jason was a camper at Camp Crystal Lake before tragically drowning while two counselors were off canoodling. Now a hatchet-weilding psycho is back for revenge.
