Two camp counselors are murdered at Camp Crystal Lake.
The murders remain unsolved until 1979.

Diana Kimble (daughter to Elias Voorhees) gives birth

Steve Christy spends $25,000 to reopen Camp Crystal Lake.
He, along with eight of his counselors, are murdered by Pamela Sue Voorhees.
The only survivor, Alice, murders Pamela by decapitation in self-defense.

Alice, who returns to Crystal Lake to conquer her fears
and rebuild her life, is murdered by an adult Jason Voorhees in her home
via an icepick through the temple. Her body is never found.
[Prologue from "Friday the 13th,
Part 2 (1981)", Paul Holt states that Alice disappeared two months after
the events of "Friday the 13th (1980)"]
[Continuity Resolution: Pault
Holt in "Friday The 13th, Part 2 (1982) states that the date of Pamela's
massacre occured on a Friday the 13th, and so, despite the year of 1979
marked on the roadside tombstone in "Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter
(1984)", these events must've happened in 1980. A possible continuity
resolution for the tombstone's year of death for Pamela is that the town
might try to cover up the entire murder spree by stating that Pamela Voorhees
died the year before said events happened. The town of Crystal Lake
would do similar things in the future including making people believe Jason
was cremated after his death, and even changing the town's name to Forest
Green after Jason's death. So, said behavior would certainly be in
line with the town's mentality of covering up or distancing themselves
from these murderous events.]
Chris Higgins flees from her family's summer home, Higgins
Haven, near Camp Crystal Lake after an argument and is attacked by an unmasked
Jason Voorhees in the woods. She later awakens back at the summer
home, and her parents will not speak of the incident.
[Flashback from "Friday the 13th,
Part 3: 3D (1982)", and Chris states that it's been 2 years since she's
been to Higgins Haven.]
Paul Holt opens a camp counselor training center adjacent
to Camp Crystal Lake. Several of the counselor hopefuls goto into
town for the evening, but the ones who stay behind are murdered by Jason
Voorhees. The only two remaining are Ginny Field and Paul Holt, but
after Ginny drives a machete through Jason's left shoulder, he returns
to attack Ginny, kill Paul, and escape back into the dense forestry.
["Friday the 13th, Part 2 (1981)",
Paul states that the events of the first film took place five years ago.
The date is chosen as the newspaper headlines in Rob's backpack in "Friday
The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)" refer to a "Friday The 13th Murderer,"
and thus, it would make great sense for the initial murders to take place
on a Friday The 13th. Not to mention, the very lively scene at the
bar the counselor trainees visit definitely reflects a Friday night at
such an establishment.]
Jason kills an older couple in Crystal Lake, and steals
a new set of clothes. He proceeds to Higgins Haven where he murders
a group of vacationing teenagers and a trio of bikers over the following
day and night. Jason is defeated by the sole survivor, Chris Higgins,
after she embeds an axe in his skull. Although, the morning after,
she is driven to hysterics over a hallucination of a decomposed Mrs. Voorhees
attempting to drown her in the lake. Jason also obtains his now signature
hockey goalie's mask from victim Shelly.
["Friday the 13th, Part 3: 3D (1982)"]
Jason is carted off to Wessex County Hospital that night,
but awakens to kill the coroner and a nurse as he escapes the hospital.
Jason returns to the Camp Crystal Lake area, and over the next two days
and nights, murders several other victims. Jason is killed by local
residents, Trisha Jarvis and her brother, 12-year old Tommy Jarvis, by
way of impaling through the skull and being hacked-up with the machette.
This mentally damages Tommy, who spends the next few years of his life
in various mental institutions. Jason's body is secretly buried in
the Eternal Peace Cemetery in Crystal Lake despite rumors of him being

Young Tina Shepard accidently kills her father with her
telekentic powers at Crystal Lake.

[Tina appears to have aged approximately
seven years after this flashback. Actress Jennifer Banko (born in
1978), who portrayed "Young Tina", was about 10 years old at the time of
[Continuity Resolution: Despite
the fact that Jason is seen underwater at the start of the flashback as
he's left at the end of "Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)",
the physical damage on Jason during his underwater dormancy isn't consistent
with the implied passage of time. Mere months underwater with corrosion
and fish feeding off him would cause that level of damage. Over the
course of numerous years, Jason would eventually be nothing but a bare
skeleton when Tina telekentically revives him.]
Tommy Jarvis, now fifteen years old, is transferred to
a halfway house for troubled teenagers where Joey, son of emergency medical
attendant Roy Burns, is murdered via an axe by Vic Faden, one of the teens
staying at the house. Roy, driven by anger and vengeance, begins
impersonating Jason, and methodically kills several of the kids and some
local residents until Tommy is forced to kill Roy. Tommy is pushed
over the proverbial edge by this, dons a hockey mask, and attempts to kill
Pam, one of the survivors visiting him at the hospital. Tommy is
re-committed into a mental institution.

Tommy Jarvis is now eighteen years old, and has been
released from the mental institution. He returns to Crystal Lake
(now re-named "Forest Green") with his friend Allen Hawes to cremate Jason's
buried corpse, but it is reanimated by a bolt of lightning. Jason
dispatches of Hawes and leaves a trail of death behind him as he returns
to Camp Forest Green (Camp Crystal Lake) which has just been reopened once
again. Jason murders all of the counselors at the camp along with
three police officers, including Sheriff Garris. Tommy drowns Jason
in Lake Forest Green (Crystal Lake), and the camp is permanently shut down
not long afterwards.
[Tommy's age comes from an early
draft of "Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)" in which Tommy
is described as "a good-looking young man in his late teens." Also,
Friday, April 13th is chosen instead of Friday, July 13th due to the heavy
jackets worn by the cops and Tommy throughout the film, and since it's
much cooler in April than the hot and humid month of July, even in New
England. Plus, it's only ever stated that the children are at Camp
Forest Green for the weekend, not the summer.]
Friday, September 13th
Tina Shepard returns to her family's home at Crystal
Lake with her mother, Amanda Shepard, and her psychiatrist, Dr. Crews.
Tina accidently telekentically reawakens Jason from his watery grave.
Jason goes on another killing spree until Tina is able to force Jason back
down into the lake using her telekenesis. Tina and Nick are the only

the nearly Autumn-looking landscape of the forestry, and that it probably
took place on a "Friday the 13th".]
Two Lakeview High School Seniors, Jim Miller and Susie
Donaldson, spend a night onboard a boat on Crystal Lake. The boat's
anchor pulls on some underwater electrical cables (I ain't swimming in
THAT lake), and thus, reanimates Jason by way of electrical charge.
Jason murders Jim and Susie on board. The boat drifts down the river,
and Jason boards the S.S. Lazarus where the graduating class of Lakeview
High are taking a cruise to Manhattan Island, New York. Jason murders
several passengers and crew members on board the ship. Only five
escape to New York City via a lifeboat, but only two leave the city alive
(Rennie Wickham and Sean Robertson). Jason is doused with toxic waste
in the sewers of Manhattan, and is believed to be destroyed.
["Friday the 13th, Part VIII: Jason
Takes Manhattan (1989)"]
[High School graduations usually
take place in June, and the radio D.J. states that the senior class of
Lakeview High will graduate on "the thirteenth of this month".]
Stephanie Kimble is born to Jessica Kimble and Steven
[This date is based on how old
the baby looks in "Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)".]
The F.B.I. has spent the past two years, on and off,
investigating the "S.S. Lazarus" incident, and all of the evidence and
eye witness reports they have gathered in New York City have led them to
Crystal Lake and Jason Voorhees. Initial reports of an undying hockey-masked
juggernaught of a serial killer stalking through Manhattan weren't taken
very seriously, but eventually the evidence was too abundant to dismiss
or ignore. The F.B.I. then decided to set up a sting operation to
rid the world of Jason Voorhees once and for all. Agent Elizabeth
Marcus is a decoy for Jason, and leads him to an open field where an F.B.I.
S.W.A.T. Team destroys his body. His remains are then taken to the
federal morgue in Youngstown, Ohio. Although, Jason's evil heart
beats again and heavily influences the mind of the County Coroner who consumes
the heart, and is thus, possessed by the deadly soul of Jason Voorhees.
Bounty hunter Creighton Duke gives an interview on the tabloid news show,
"American Case File," stating that the destruction of Jason's body was
inconsequential, and that Jason isn't dead, yet. Duke states that
he's the only one who knows how to "put an end to him for all time," but
for that to happen, it'll cost someone $500,000. In the following
week, five more "Jason-style" murders take place on a direct path from
the federal morgue in Youngstown, Ohio to Crystal Lake. Then, in
the following few days, a series of very Jason-esque murders take place
in the Crystal Lake area, but no one ever reports seeing Jason Voorhees.
In reality, the heart of Jason Voorhees transferred itself from body-to-body
for temporary periods of time in pursuit of being reborn into the body
of another in the Voorhees family bloodline, namely his half-sister Diana,
his neice Jessica, or grandneice Stephanie Kimble. Jason accidently
kills Diana, and thus, pursues Jessica and her baby Stephanie. Jason
is ultimately reborn through Diana's dead body (which was stolen from the
morgue and stashed away in the Voorhees house), and is then sent to Hell
by being stabbed in the heart by Jessica using the magic dagger given to
her by Creighton Duke. Duke is Jason's final victim before being
sent to Hell.
["Jason Goes to Hell: The Final
[The time of year is a guess via
observation. There are still plenty of leaves on the trees, but those
campers are looking quite chilly for it to be Summer. So, September
would have cool enough nights for Autumn, but still have plenty of leaves
on the trees. Also, I'm sure that the F.B.I. would need at least
a year to seriously investigate the "S.S. Lazarus" incident and
the legend of Camp Blood thoroughly.]
[Continuity Resolution: Steven
states to the hitchhiking campers that the cabins at Camp Crystal Lake
were "torn down a few years ago", and by the looks of Camp Crystal Lake
cabins seen in "Friday the 13th, Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)"
that the camp is rather run-down and one might be lead to believe that
they would be set for demolition soon. Plus, the camp had already
been permanently shut down two years prior due to the events of "Friday
the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)".]
[Continuity Resolution: Robert
Campbell states that "for over 20 years the mere mention of the name Jason
Voorhees has been enough to send a shiver up the spines of people across
the nation." If we were to follow those words, then, the events of
"Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)" would take place in 2004,
one year after the events of "Freddy vs. Jason (2003)". Also, why
2004? Because the "people across the nation" would not of heard of
the name "Jason Voorhees" until 1984 when he began his week long killing
spree around Crystal Lake. Before then, Jason was nothing more than
a local legend. Also, do you really think that it would take the
F.B.I. another 10-12 years to investigate the "S.S. Lazarus" incident?
So, we'll just file this one under the thoughtless fault of the screenwriter,
or some truly overly dramatic license taken by the character of Robert
Jason Voorhees is resurrected from the grave once more
by the demonic child killer Freddy Krueger - who has been searching for
his ticket out of hell. Jason travels to Springwood, Ohio to do Freddy's
bidding by killing the children of Springwood in a manner that would resurrect
fear of Freddy in the Elm Street children. This fear empowers Freddy
so that he can return to his murderous ways, but when Jason refuses to
back off, the two come into conflict. Freddy bests Jason in the dream
world, but once Freddy is dragged into the real world, he is defeated by
Jason Voorhees along with Springwood teens Lori Campbell and Will Rollins
at Camp Crystal Lake. Though, Freddy still exists - to some extent
- in the dream world.
["Freddy vs. Jason (2003)"]
[Continuity Resolution: Even
though it is stated by Steven Freeman in "Jason Goes To Hell: The Final
Friday (1993)" that all the cabins at Camp Crystal Lake were torn down
a few years ago, the cabins featured here could be a left over structures
from any of the private residences around the lake that were not part of
the camp (i.e. the counselor training facility, Higgins Haven, the Jarvis
home, the Shepard home).]
Jason Voorhees has since been captured by the United
States government, and despite multiple attempts at killing him, he survives.
Jason is held captive and examined in the Crystal Lake Research Facility
under military guard. He is found to have extraordinary tissue regenerative
abilities, but as the scientists want him cryogenically frozen in order
to contain him, the military wants to further examine him for their own
use. Jason escapes his captivity by killing several military officers,
but is locked in a cryogenic chamber by Rowan, a research scientist at
the facility. Although, Jason breaches the chamber, and Rowan is
locked inside the chamber room. Both Jason and Rowan are cryogenically
frozen for the next 445 years.
["Jason X (2002)"]
A student research team from the space vessel Grendel,
out on an expedition on the now barren planet Earth, discover the cryogenically
frozen bodies of Jason Voorhees and Rowan. Both are taken back to
the Grendel. Rowan is taken to the medical lab where she is revived
and her machette wound is healed via nanotechnology. The team believes
Jason is dead and attempt to examine him, but he awakens and begins to
slaughter everyone on board. Jason's body is eventually destroyed
by the android, Kay-Em 14, but the computers in the medical lab accidently
come online and begin to regenerate Jason via nanotechnology. This
turns Jason into a part-cybernetic being referred to as Über-Jason.
This version of Jason is eventually destroyed by Sgt. Brodski as the two
of them are incinerated as they enter the atmosphere of Earth II.
Only Rowan, Tsunaron, and the functioning head of Kay-Em 14 survive.
