The Many Lives of Jason Vorhees

Recommended Posts

Ok so with the Friday the 13th game coming out next week I'd like to talk a little bit the worlds most recognizable slasher Jason Voorhees. I'll be looking at each of his movies designs as well as giving my own interpretation of his history. I should note that I will be skimming over some of the actual movie plots as a whole since this is more of a look at Jason's character, his designs and filling in some of the continuity gapes...were possible.

As most of you know Jason Voorhees is a seemingly immortal murderer who haunts the area around Crystal Lake. Jason was born on June 13, 1946 to Elias and Pamela Voorhees. At birth Jason was heavily deformed and mentally stunted, howver his mother clearly loved him deeply. Nothing official is know about Elias Vorhees, however most comic adaptions have depicted the man as being wicked and abusive to both Pamela and Jason. These adaptions also often dictate Elias meeting his end at the hands of Pamela for hurting Jason. What Jason was like as a child is not fully known. According to Pamela, Jason was a sweet and innocent boy and many of the movies and extra marital seem to support this idea. A few comics depict Jason as being very disturbed and show him killing animals however these acts seem very out of character because as an adult, Jason seems to have a very warped moral code and dose not kill animals unless forced or children under the age of 10. Interestingly enough some of comics and novels do suggest that Jason did have some form of healing factor, "He healed fast" as Pamela would put it.

In the summer of 1957, Pamela, unable to get a babysitter for Jason, resorted to bringing him to Camp Crystal Lake where she worked as a cook. Unfortunately Jason's deformities and mental state made him a very  easy target for bullying by other children. While being bullied by the other campers, Jason attempted to escape from his tormentors, but the cruel children caught up to him on the dock and threw Jason into the lake where he drowned. The counselors were supposed to be watching the children, but instead were talking and having sex in the woods. Though Jason's body was never found, the camp closed as a result, but reopened the next summer. This event drove Pamela insane with sorrow and rage. As far as we know Pamela only ever returned to crystal lake three times after her sons "death". On the first two occasions in 1958 and 1962, Pamela's visits were short and secret, committing one double homicide, poisoning the camp water supply and setting some of the cabins on fire. One her third and final visit in 1979, Pamela when on a killing spree murdering most of the camp counselors until she was decapitated by the sole survive, Alice Hardy.

There a lot of speculations as to what happend to Jason during this time. Many thing that he resurrected as an undead revenant from the get go and other believe that he was resurrected by Pamela using the Necronomicon, the book of the dead from the Evil Dead franchise. However I do not superscribe to ether theory myself, or at least no in full, but we will cover this latter. My theory is that Jason did survive his drowning but not unharmed. That even would likely have caused a large amount of brain damage due to lack of oxygen. For a normal person they would have died or bin left with permanent brain damage but Jason, thanks to his healing factor survived. However it likely took some time for his brain to heal and so for a time he was either dormant and /or lived in the woods for a while like an animal with fractured memories of his passed. He would have kept away from other people because he feared them. When is brain did fully heal its possible that Jason chose to stay at crystal lake and wait for his mother to find him, she would have been the one to take him home after summer camp and Jason, being a good boy waited for her. As time passed he would learn to live of the land and build a ramshackle home for himself. However even then he kept away from others out of fear. In 1979 Jason would have been 33 years of age.

But everything changed when Jason finally found his mother and saw her death.

Original Jason

tumblr_nl63shpVqd1rlnr40o1_400.giff6cd99a19a399e30e81718a2e7693094.jpg

Jason original look was very different from his more well known one. The thing most notice right away is the fact that in place of his classic hocky mask, Jason is sporting a dirty, burlap sack with an eye hole cut out and held in place by a not of rope. This combined with his rather fetching blue overalls makes Jason looks very much like a stereotypical, killer hillbilly found in many, many slasher and horror films. This is not the only thing different about him, this Jason is a far more stealthy killer and displays some genuine fear when being attacked (lets be fair if someone was charging at you with a chainsaw, killer or not I think you'd be at least a bit worried) making his a far cry from the unstoppable juggernaut of legend. There are some hints of modern Jason under it all though. First and foremost,  he's completely silent with his only real signs of emotion come from his body language. He's also almost supernaturally stealthy and pretty strong....although not super, knock your head off in one punch, strong. But the biggest similarity to his future self is his almost artistic ability to murder people with literally anything lying around. Machete, Pick Axe, Ice Pick, Barbed Wire, Knife or a Spear, Jason aint fussed as they all get the job done. Underneath the sack is probably the most realistic (and one of the more scary) interpretations of his face. What makes it work is that its not to over the top, it's very realistic and you can honestly believe there is some poor soul out their with a face like this. The Sack is in someways better then the hockey mask, while not as iconic (and clearly a ripoff of the Phantom Killer from The Town That Dreaded Sundown) it hides much more of his faces and gives him a far more creepy look. Jason is defeated at the end of Part 2 by being sliced deep into his shoulder with his own Machete. However this is also when Jason first displays his healing factor on screen as he not only survived the wound but also fully recovers from it.

Sorry for cutting this short last night, had an emergency.

Classic Jason

r7rak8weudfp90nso7mu.jpg friday-the-13th-3-game-2.jpg

This is pretty much the version of Jason that jumps to mind when ever his name pops up. This is when Jason first dawned his most iconic piece of equipment, his hockey mask. For this version the mask is brand new with no damage and actually clean! Dress wise Jason now sports a dull green shirt, a white vest and some genes. This version of Jason is were many of his physical traits start to be shown in full. Gone is fear he once displayed, now he goes strait foe his target and wont let anything get in his way however he has not lost any of his stealthiness. This is also when he begins display physical strength beyond that of a normal human...by crushing a guys skull with his bare hands with such force that an eye pops out! Tool wise Jason dose make some changes, while he still has his trusty machete he also makes use of a meat clear, pitchfork, fireplace poker and a fusion box. This is also one of the fuse times Jason makes use of a ranged weapon in the form of a spear gun. On the down side this versions face is not quit as scary as the last or later ones, its ok  but to me it seems to have lost some of its realness. Durability wise this Jason takes a licking and keeps on kick despite being hanged and receiving his most iconic battle scar, a woodcutter axe to left side of his forehead. While he dose survive all this, we also get an idea of his limitations since these wounds were enough to at least knock him out for a short time. In the up coming game  its a bit ironic that Jason's weapon will be the axe that injured him. Character wise their are some inconsistencies with his character, for one this Jason revels his face to someone of his own accord and actually smiles. Second we are told Jason attacked a girl in the woods many years ago and may or may-not have sexually assaulted her.

Jason 2.0

Jason-Voorhees-Part-4-Final-Chapter-FullJasonUnmasked.jpg

Calling this one 2.0 is rather fitting as there is little changed. Apart from dawning some darker cloths, the mask getting a bit grubbier and sporting his iconic axe wound, this Jason is roughly unchanged. Even the tools he uses to kill are almost identical bare him adding a scalpel and a gardening claw to his tool shed. The big change for Jason this time was not in himself but in someone he would meet. Tommy Jarvis was a young boy living near crystal lake and who has something of an obsession with horror films and the legend of Jason. When Jason invaded his home Tommy tried to save his family by making himself look like Jason as a child. This actually caught Jason's attention at got him to lower his guard long enough for Tommy to attack him. Tommy succeeded in knocking of his mask, slicing his hand in half and impaling him in the face. Everything seemed over, but Tommy noticed Jason move slightly he attacked the killers body in a frenzy, scream "DIE....DIE!" Tommy succeed in killing Jason but the event took its tole on the boy sanity, this would lead to him being committed in the future. As for Jason's face this time around.....not bad, but worse then the last one and looks to rubbery.

Copycat Jason

dick-wieand-roy-jason-f13-1985.jpg

Although dead Jason's influence survived beyond the grave. Six years after killing Jason, Tommy , who had been in and out of institutions since his encounter with Jason, was sent to the Pinehurst Halfway House. Shortly after Tommy's arrival, residents of the area started being killed off at an alarming rate after one of the unstable teens murdered a boy named Joey Burns. In time Tommy came face to face with the killer....Jason...but how? The true was reveled when Tommy succeeded in killing the murderer. When the mask came off it was reveled to be Roy Burns, a local paramedic and the illegitimate father of the murdered Joey. Seeing his son dead body drove ol Roy off the deep end and he he set out to get revenge against the teens of Pinehurst Halfway House. Its unknown as to why Roy chose to copycat Jason, it might have been due to Tommy. For what is in reality just a normal person in a mask, Roy dose a pretty good at the murder game, in fact he may be the best copycat in history since if we go by a film by film bases Roy actually out kills Jason, with Jason's highest score on an outing at this point only being 14 kills while Roy got 17! Wardrobe wise. Roy really goes out of his way to look the part. Sporting a blue boiler suit, latex rubber skin over his head and a new hockey mask sporting 2 blue chevrons. The big problem with Roy as the killer is that there are a number of moments in the film were he displays physical abilities beyond that of a normal person, such a full-body bursting through a door at walking speed, but this could be explained away to a degree-by my theory that Roy was juiced up on some powerful drugs that removed his sense of pain, granting him increase durability and strength.

Tomorrow we'll be getting back to Jason.

Undead Jason

lives.jpgPart6.jpg

After the incident with Roy, Tommy himself went a bit nuts himself. While at the hospital after the incident Tommy almost murdered a visitor while wearing a hockey mask. Due to this mental breakdown, Tommy was recommitted and would not be released back into society for a number of years. When he was, Tommy and his friend Allen Hawes made their way back to Crystal Lake. Tommy was convinced that if he could destroy Jason's body for good then maybe it would cure him of his mental health problems. They made their was to the Crystal Lake cemetery and dug up the grave of Jason with the intent of cremating his remains. However Tommy became overly emotional at the sight of Jason's corpse and in a fit of rage, stabbed the body multiple times with a metal fence post. But this action had unforeseen, lethal consequences. There was a terrible storm brewing that night and in a twisted quirk of fate, lightning struck the metal post logged in Jason's chest! As electricity flowed through the corpse, Jason's eyes opened.....Jason Lived Again! Exactly how this occurred is the subject of much debate among fans and as I've said before I do not prescribe to the two main theories, at least not as a whole.  My personal theory is that Pamela did try to resurrect Jason with the necronomicon (how she came by it is anyone's guess) but the spell didn't work as Jason was still alive. As to why it didn't effect him sooner, well its because he was given a proper burial on hallowed ground were the evil magic could not touch him until Tommy desecrated his grave. I also will point out Jason is not a deadite (well not yet but we'll get to that much later) but a revenant. Jason has got a pretty cool new wardrobe to match his new lease on unlife, now sporting a green shirt, beige trousers, yellow gloves and a utility belt. His mask is pretty much the same as before, all be it a bit grubbier and with the cheek chevrons missing. Jason's main weapon for this outing is the very metal fence post he was impaled with but picks up his classic machete while making his rounds. He also kills someone with a throwing dart to the forhead. However the biggest changes for Jason are internal. He's now far stronger then he was before, now being strong enough to literally punch holes through peoples bodies, smash a girls face into the side of a camper van with such force that it leaves a huge dent and bend a guy in half! Jason's durability and regeneration have also been enhanced by his resurrection as well, as he's injured and even shot yet displayed not even the slightest bit of pain to wounds that would have incapacitated him previously. This is also about the point Jason stops running and begins "teleporting". This is not something that is ever address in the franchise, he just power walks after his victims then now and again just pops up out of nowhere. This teleporting could be another aspect of his unlife. We never see Jason's face clearly on this outing, the one good shot we do get is covered in dirt and maggots, but production stills show his skin looking very dried out and grayish, with his flesh rotting away from a round his left eye, nose and mouth. On the whole the face looks cool. On a side not, its clear that Jason didn't want to be out done by Roy and bumps his kill count up to 19 for this killing spree. At the end of the this outing Tommy is able to chain Jason to the bottom of Crystal Lake (smashing a bot propeller into the side of his head for good measure) trapping the immortal killer for a time.

Unchained Jason

?interpolation=lanczos-none&output-formaf13-part7-jason.jpg

Some time later a girl named Tina Shepard moved back to Crystal Lake with he mother and psychiatrist. The psychiatrist had suggested to move to try and help Tina overcome her mental trauma of seeing her father dye and the blame she placed on herself. A blame that partly was justified, Tina was psychic. As a child her father would become violent when drunk and hit her mother, one night it become to much for Tina and she ran out to the nearby dock. when her father came after her, trying to bring her home and saying he was sorry, Tina become furious and her power manifested, causing the dock to collapse and drown him. However her psychiatrist, Dr. Crews, was not interested in helping Tina overcome her trauma. Crews was more interested in her abilities and quickly realized that they were linked to her emotional state. After trying to study Tina under controlled conditions with little success, Crews decided to take her back to Crystal Lake were he hoped she could be more easily emotionally provoked. During one of their sessions, Tina become upset and ran off to the dock were she had killed her father. While there Tina sensed a presents in the lake, a trapped presents. Upset and confused, Tina focused her power on this person mistaking it for her father. But in truth Tina had freed Jason! Time in the lake had not been kind to Jason, superficially. His cloths had degenerated to rags and much of his skin had further decayed revealing bones, ribs and even his spine. Around his neck was the remains of the chain Tommy had used to trap him and mask had been damaged by the boat propeller leaving a large chunk missing from the left side. Jason's strength and thirst for death had not diminished however and he added a few new means of dishing out murder to his repertoire. This included killing with a sickle, ramming a party horn into someones eye, slamming a women trapped in a sleeping bag into a tree and disemboweling Crews with a Tree Trimming Saw. Eventually Jason confronted Tina in a battle of wills as well as strength against mind. Tina's abilities at this time were predominately the telekinetic manipulation  of objects and she threw everything she could at the undead killer. She trapped him with tree roots, electrocuted him, hurled lamps, tied to hang him with lamp cables, shot nails at him (even bulls eyeing him right between the eyes), set him on fire, dropped sections of the house on him and finally blew the place up with Jason inside. But Jason weathered everything Tina brought to bear, slowed down and impeded but never stopped. This battle is easily one of the best depictions of Just how tough Jason is.At one point in their battle Tina tried hurt Jason by tightening the straps of his mask, eventually the mask broke away under Tina's assault and Jason's face was reveled . His flesh was now bloated and waterlogged, yet while rotting Jason appeared to have also healed somewhat as well. The flesh around his mouth, once decayed, had reformed somewhat although his malformed teeth were still visible. The flesh around his left eye was still rotted away, leaving exposed bone with a new long scar ring across the side of his head from the eye socket (likely from the boat propeller). Also from the propeller, a large chunk of flesh from the left side of Jason's mouth had been sliced away revealing his back molars. This mixed state of regeneration and decay gave Jason a very zombie like appearance and what could be said to be one of the best faces under the mask. Jason was sent flying into Crystal Lake when the house exploded but this did not stop him. He persuade Tina to that fateful dock were she had killed her father and freed him. Scared and beyond desperation, Tina was at Jason's mercy when she witnessed the impossible!  Her father burst up from under the dock, wielding the very chain Tommy had used to bind Jason before. Caught by surprise, Jason was dragged back into the lake while Tina could only watch in amazement, unshore if what had just happens was real.

On a side not, this was when Kane Hodder, the man who would play Jason the most, first took on the role.

Slime Jason

11-personajes-cinematograficos-que-se-hajasontakesmanhattanface.jpg

Jason would again be freed by the hands of unknowing teens, this time when a couple accidentally dragged a damaged power cable over to Jason's body. Electricity once again enabled Jason to return to life. After killing the teens responsible for his resurrection, Jason stowed aboard a  a cruise ship, fittingly named the S.S. Lazarus, which was bound for New York city. Jason now sports pure black shirt, geans, and gloves, all of which are a little ripped up and  soaked right through. While a bit drab, this all black and wet look dose have its own air of menace to it. Since his mask had been destroyed by Tina, Jason appropriated a souvenir replica which sported the signature axe damage but had smaller, inverted cheek chevrons. This mask heavily implies there are some really messed up people in the Crystal Lake tourism business. Jason's skin this time around is a sickly, greenish color with a slimy looking texture. His over all appearance is that of a bloated, melted, water logged corpse. While Jason dose a pretty good job killing with weapons here, smashing a girls head in with her guitar, stabbing someone with a shard of glass and planting a fire axe in someones back, Jason dose his best kills when he gets more hands on. This includes shoving a sauna rock into someones stomach, drowning someone in a barrel of sewage (that had a dead rat in it!) and...well just watch... 

Interestingly Jason's aim seems to have gotten worse as he missed someone while shooting a harpoon gun at them from only a short distance away. But he dose make up for this error by stabbing someone in the gut with the empty gun and then someone else with the harpoon. We don't get to see under the mask until quit late in the film. While chasing the last survivors into the sewers of New York, one of them finds a bucket of toxic wast (as you would) and throws it into Jason's face. While we cannot be shore if this is what his face always looked like.....this is universally considered to be the single WORST Jason face. Looking like a cheap, slimy, melted latex mask with the only shocking thing about it being just how bad it is. The dopey eyes, melted lips and big goofy teeth only add to its outlandishness. The one real upside is that they kept the mouth wound consistent, even going so far as to have what flesh was there be melted off.  Also the flesh around his  left eye had finally healed. Jason is eventually defeated when the sewer he is in floods with more toxic wast.....which apparently happens dead on midnight, every night. No wonder they have a C.H.U.D problem. We do get a few good character moments in this outing. The one big one being Jason's clear dislike for punk music, displayed by him punting a local gangs boombox. He also, in a familier out of character moment, shows his face to said gang when they try to pick a fight with him....and like any rational person, they run away from that sight of pure fail. This is also the first time Jason displays any sign of pain since his return as a revenant, reacting to having the toxic wast thrown in his face and even roaring in actual pain. Interestingly, while never explained in the film itself, one of the characters keeps seeing Jason as a child due to latent emphatic abilities.

Despite my trashing of the face, I do have a soft spot for this Jason as he was the one who came out the year I was born and has some of my favorite kills under his belt. The upcoming game dose improves upon the face design as best they could and I think it works.

Eternal Jason

tumblr_o5c9erQcdw1qzxhlzo2_1280.pnghqdefault.jpg009.jpg?quality=100

Turns out Jason survived his dip in toxic waste. He eventually returned to Crystal Lake after an unspecified amount of time and got back to doing what he dose best. A lot has happened to Jason in that time. He's now wearing what looks like dusty blue overalls or a matching shirt and trousers. His tops a little ripped up and he's now ditched the gloves. However the biggest change is to his body, which has to be one of the most drastic redesigns of the character. His body is now heavenly deformed, with his skin has an almost cancer like quality. The biggest change it to his head, its now bulbous, perhaps hearkening  back to the suggestion of Hydrocephalicness that Jason suffered from as a child. His more alive looking skin, which is more similar to his Original, Classic and 2.0 versions, might suggest that Jason's body has now fully healed since his return from the grave. I also theories that maybe this is a side effect of the dark magic that keeps Jason alive. Because of the large amount of regeneration needed after the toxic waste dipping, the magic kicked into overdrive to preserve him and as a result its begun to twist his body with its nature Also of note Jason finally gets some hair back, something he's not had since is Original version. His Hockey mask is the most damaged version seen, it still has its classic axe mark but now it also sports a hole above the left eye and a chunk of the mask is missing on the lower left side, mirroring the propeller damage from Unchained. Both the cheek chevrons are missing again and the mask is not only very dirty but also looks burned in places, all this suggests that Jason's been through quit a bit since his New York vacation. Due to Jason's enlarged head, the masks straps are now digging into Jason's flesh making his head look even more deformed. Since his face is not shown during the film I'll talk about it here, Due to the fact that Jason's head has out grown the mask, to the point that it looks like its a permanent part of his being, Jason's face is constantly having pressure applied to it resulting in what can only be described as grade 4 pressure ulcer. While some skin is left around his left eye, the vast majority of his face is exposed muscle and deep tissue with his right eye missing and the area around the socket reduced to bone. This applies to the areas under the straps to. Also a few of his front teeth are missing. Interestingly, the makeup department messed up on this design as, canonically since his resurrection, it has been Jason's left eye that was missing or deformed. For the upcoming game (out tomorrow) they swapped the eyes round. Anyway one day Jason is cough in a trap by the FBI, turns out that if you kill people lone enough and loud enough the government will be forced to except your existence. They try to gun him down but in the end they resort to mortar fire to finally defeat him. blowing Jason to bits. The parts of Jason are taken back to their HQ were an on sight coroner begins to examine them. While examining Jason's heart, which the coroner notes is is much larger then that of a normal person's and filled with a dark fluid that dose not seem like blood, the disembodied organ begins to beat. The coroner seems hypnotized by this action and then proceeds to eat Jason's heart....allowing the killer to take possession of his body. Jason then makes his way back home leaving a trail of dead bodies in his wake. During the events around Jason's death, a bounty hunter named Creighton Duke followed the event and publicly stated that Jason was not dead. While not shown in the film itself, it was stated in the script, Duke had encountered Jason some years before and escaped with his life....although a women he loved was not so fortunate. This lead Duke to obsessively search for a way to kill Jason and when he heard the news of the killing he new it was Jason and what he wanted. Jason was hunting for remnants of his family because only through the body of a Vorhees women could he be restored to life fully as his host bodes would slowly decay over time, I personally think this was another facet of the spell Pamela used to try and resurrect Jason. However were was Jason going to find a women of his bloodline when all his family were long dead? Well turns out Jason's dad, dear old Elias, who had on top of being a wife beater and a scumbag was also unfaithful. He's sired a daughter, named Diana Voorhees Kimble, who had a a daughter of her own named Jessica Kimble and a granddaughter, Stephanie Kimble. Jason hunted down Diana but during a struggle accidentally killed her. With his body weakening and the police on the way, Jason was forced to retreat and find a new host.  Jason would then begin to hunt for Jessica and Stephanie, even going so far as to possess her then fiance Robert Campbell. Eventually Jessica is lead to the old Vorhees home by Duke, who insists he can help her kill Jason. A point of note, it is a one point inside the Voorhees home were the Necronomicon is seen. Its this that gives credence to the idea Pamela resurrected Jason and how Duke likely learned his weakness. Turns out that Jason can be sent to hell by the hand of a fellow Vorhees, this was probably one of those get out clauses most magic spells seem to come with. Duke hands Jessica a knife which turns into a demonic looking dagger she can use to beat Jason. Jason then attacks the house and during the struggle he is defeated.....however a demonic, half-slug, baby creature pulls its way out of Jason's corpse. Seems like Jason is still alive, this "thing" is him but small and vulnerable. While trying to kill it, the demon baby slips into the cellier. Here we find out some rather bad news, turns out  Jessic's future husband was also an asshole reporter for some cheap murder themed tv show and to help boost his rating he stole Diana's corpse from the morgue and placed it in the house so he could come across it while filming. We also find out some worse news from  Duke, turns out that while Jason needs a Vorhees women to be resurrected......them being alive is optional. So then the demon baby disappears up the Diana's corpse's birth canal (I wish I was making that up) and before you can say "He's Back", Jason now fully restored cloths, hockey mask and all, comes bursting through the cellar floor. After another battle for survival, Jessica is able to stab Jason in the heart with the knife, allowing the forces of hell to drag the immortal killer to their realm leaving only his hockey mask. It all finally seems to be over and Jason is gone for good.....

2be8e56889e905ed8eb29ffae24ef1af.gif

Over all Jason's characterization is kept intact here although their are some odd out of character moments. Theses include, but are not limited to, Jason shaving one of his future hosts and even talking to try and trick Jessica (something he has not done since childhood). Some of these off character moments could be attributed to the Jason being aware of his vulnerability and the dark magic thats sustaining him possible also driving him to act out of character as it works to make him whole again although this is all speculation on my part and dose not fix all the issues. Eternal Jason also had one other, although whether you want it to be cannon or not is your call. This story was.....

Jason vs Leatherface 

312440d22f9ba79d7fcf240529e8957a.jpg3168134-6193798787-tumbl.jpg

In this three part story Jason is once again trapped under Crystal Lake until a drainage company accidentally free him and ship him and the wast water off. Jason escapes the tank and finds himself in Texas. While wondering through the woods Jason bumps into the Sawyer family, specifically the Hitchhicker and Leatherface, doing  a spot of hunting. Jason kills the poor soul who runs to him for help then confronts Leatherface. The two have a short clash, during which Jason is able to knock Leatherface's chainsaw away. However rather then pressing the attack Jason stops....something about Leatherface resonates with him and he hands the fellow masked killer his weapon back. Impressed with Jason, the Hitchhicker invites Jason to come home with them much to Leatherface's unhappiness. Once they get home, Jason is introduced to the Cook and Grandpa and likewise introduces himself...by righting his name on the wall in blood. While making himself at home, Hitchhicker and Cook take the time to talk to Jason as well as praise his killing skills.....at Leatherface's expense. As hinted at before Leatheface is not happy about Jason being here and runs of to his room. When suppers ready the Cook asks Jason to go get Leatherface. Jason finds his counterpart lying on his bed, mask off and crying his heart out. Its then that that strange resonance comes over Jason again and we learn that Jason see's himself in Leatherface, particularly his child self. Jason feels empathy..... Upon seeing Jason in his room, Leatherface is not happy but when Jason politely indicates for them to go to supper together Leatherface softens up to him. I should point out that Jason dose not eat the supper, he dose not need food these days and even then cannibalism is not really his thing. During his short stay Jason and Leatherface grow closer, forming a Big Brother, Little Brother relationship, with Jason even going so far as to protect Leatherface from the bullying Hitchhicker. However eventually  Hitchhicker pushs his luck to far and stabs Jason....with the expected result. Jason tried to kill  him but the Cook, unaware of how the fight started, tries to save his brother and puts himself right in Jason's cross-hires. Its then that Leatherface jumps in to protect his brothers in-spite of his love for Jason. Its clear that the poor guy is really under his families thumb. Leatherface puts up a better fight then any other mortal man would but Jason is just to strong and mad as hell at being betrayed. However one of the brothers gets a lucky shot and knock Jason out cold. Hitchhicker wants to eat him but Leatherface, having learned some bravery from his adopted brother, makes it clear that ain't happening and the Cook agrees. They instead give Jason a water burial at a nearby river with Leatherface placing a rose in Jason's hand. Jason recovers some time later down stream and finds he still has the rose in his hand...and keeps it.

While some debate were this takes place, given Jason's look in the comic and the fact that Eternal Jason has clearly been active for some time, I like to think of this as one of the outing Jason had between part 8 and 9. While the story dose have a number of continuity errors the overall story is so odd and good and the characterization of Jason and Leatherface so amazing that I cannot help but include it as part of the overall story.

Is the person who brought the Necronomicon into the Friday the Thirteenth franchise in any way affiliated with the Evil Dead franchise? That might be interesting (and suggest a shared universe).

Also, it's Voorhees. If he really has Dutch ancestry that might explain why he's so tall. :P

Is the person who brought the Necronomicon into the Friday the Thirteenth franchise in any way affiliated with the Evil Dead franchise? That might be interesting (and suggest a shared universe).

Also, it's Voorhees. If he really has Dutch ancestry that might explain why he's so tall. :P

That's that's very interacting and yes it would. Also thanks for pointing out I was spelling his name wrong, after this much time you'd think I'd have noticed Haha.

As for the Necronomicon, it's intreasting you should mention that because that will be part of the next post.

From here on out we'll be looking at events in chronological order rather then time of release. 

All-Star Jason

03.jpgfred-840x480.jpg

 

Hell was an odd place for Jason because it was so familiar. Not for Jason the chains, forks, fire, torcher and demons that most would imagine, rather what ever power governs the dark side of the afterlife chose a different type of cage. An infinite loop. Hell recreated Crystal Lake and set Jason in it, granting him dummies in the likeness of his old victims to slaughter while they vindicated his actions. One must wonder if it was not punishment the Devil gave Jason but a reward or at least a gilded cage. But while it seems most. even the devil himself, were happy to just leave Jason be....another dark soul had other ideas. That soul was Frederick Charles "Freddy" Krueger. Freddy was a twisted soul who in many ways was Jason's opposite. The bastard son of 1 of 100 maniacs who rapped a nun named Amanda Krueger, Freddy was a very disturbed and wicked child. As an adult he would become a child murderer, sometimes hinted at worse, who used a bladed glove to do his work and given the moniker of "The Springwood Slasher". Freddy was burned to death by the parents of Springwood after he was caught but then released because the arrest warrant was signed in the wrong place. But his death only made things worse, as he burned three Dream Demons appeared before Freddy and offered him their power...Freddy jumped at the chance. Using their power, Freddy could control the dream world and kill any who crossed his path. But he's power had limits, Freddy 's power was, at its core, tied to fear. While he could grow stronger by other means, such as devouring the souls of his victims, fear was his always his starter. It is also what allowed him spread to begin with, knowledge and fear of him would act like a homing beacon, giving a way into peoples dreams until his power base grew more substantial. It was this fear that would always allow him to pull himself back after each defeat even when the rest of his power-base had been destroyed. But eventually the people of Springwood found out this weakness and did all they could to exploit it. With his lifeline cut, Freddy was was forced to face the powers of hell. Until he found Jason. Using what little power he had left, Freddy appeared to Jason as his mother, convinced him to go to Springwood and set Jason's soul free. 

He's now back to a mostly all black cloths, save his jacket, like Slime Jason but looks more dusty and grave-risen like Undead Jason. He's wearing gloves like 3 of his other designs did after coming back to life. His skin is very dark and decayed looking like the Undead design but with none of the rot any of his previous undead variations had. He also boasts hair like his Original and Eternal designs. His mask now has zero battle damage and looks almost like a replica of his Classic one. Since again we dont see his face in full here, the designs for the face under the mask looked ok in a practical sense but were nothing special, looking only slightly deformed. Jason went to Springwood and started doing what he did best and in a short while Freddy's power began to return and with it he was able to escape hell. But while his power grew so did his irritation of Jason, he was only ment to kill a few and then sod off. This came to a head when Jason killed a girl Freddy was stalking in the real world. Sick of Jason's kill stealing, Freddy possessed the body of a teen and used him as a sacrificial pawn inject Jason with heavy tranquilizers. With Jason trapped in the dream world, Freddy believed he could now do away with his dimwitted rival with little effort. However this only proved to be a half-truth. While Jason had no defense against Freedy's dream powers, Jason's regeneration, monstrous strength and iron will allowed him to take everything Freddy threw at him and keep getting back up. Its worth noting that Jason's mask gains a number of scratch marks from Frieddy's glove at this time. It was only an accident that proved to be Jason's undoing, a burst water pipe in fact. Under normal circumstances Jason feared nothing but the dream world  is a place of emotions and the mind. On the one hand people who go there can gain great power, the power of their dreams but it also strengthens negative emotions and bring them to the for, something Freddy often used to his advantage. Deep in his mind was a fear Jason had gained as a child, aquaphobia. With this weakness revealed, Freddy was able to access Jason's mind and created a nightmare that would allow him to be killed. A recreation of the day he drowned at Crystal Lake, with a little Freddy flare thrown in. However a group of teens tied up in the events were trying to undermine Freddy's plans. They transported the unconscious Jason back to Crystal Lake while one of them, Lori Campbell, went into the dream world to save the hulking killer and pull Freddy into the real world.  While things didn't all go according to plan eventually Freddy was pulled into the real world with Jason. The battle between the to was raw and bloody, not quarter given or looked for. In the real world Jason could bring all his unholy strength to bare against Freddy, but Freddy was not helpless. He's physical body was stronger then that of a normal persons and with his smaller size, speed, intelligence and the fighting skills stolen from people had had killed, he was able to hold his ground. In fact their were a number of times Freddy gained an edge of the undead giant but Jason's durability allowed him to keep fighting on. Eventually the two found themselves locked in a deadly embrace with Jason ripping off Freddy's glove arm while Freddy impaled him with his own machete. Lori then set alight the dock they were standing on, igniting a fuel pump and blasting the deadly pair into the lake. Lori though it was over but then out of the smoke loomed Freddy still holding Jason's  machete and poised to strike. But then Jason rose from the lake and impaled Freddy with his own arm before falling back. then Lori took up the machete and beheaded the Springwood Slasher. Freddy's head and body fell into Crystal Lake. As Lori stood to watch she saw Jason floating in the water, while she feared him she also felt sorry for him as she had seen his passed in the dream world. As Jason sank down, Lori dropped his weapon into the water to follow him.  But as is always the case with monsters...its never really over.

Jason went right back to his old routine and even killed Lori in cold blood when she came back to Crystal Lake some time later. But one thing had changed, someone else was running about upstairs. Turns out Freddy was trapped in Jason's skull. Most likely Springwood had contained their Freddy problem once more, leaving the Springwood Slashed marooned in Jason's dreams. While Freddy hated it, he eventually came across something very interesting. A memory of Pamela showing Jason the Necronomicon. Somehow the mad old girl had got her hands on it and if Freddy played his cards right he could not only get out of Jason's head but also become more powerful then before! So Freddy once again sort to manipulate Jason through his mother. This time using her image alongside himself, having her say that Freddy was going to be Jason's new daddy and he should listen to him. Side note, as part of this dream poor Jason walks in on Freddy sleeping with his mother.....classy Kruger, very classy. Upside for Jason, Freddy sweetens the deal by promising to make him a "real boy". While that dark deal is being made, the local S-Marts's new "Housewares Domestic Engineer" has just arrived. His name is Ashley James"Ashe" Williams, the Chosen One, Eternal Enemy of the Necronomicon and all-round lovable asshole. Poor Ash can never catch a break and after hearing about some resent killings and the Legend of Jason Voorhees, he comes to the conclusion that the Necronomicon his here. Both Ash and Jason set out for the Voorhees home. Now in typical horror, a bunch of silly/drunk/wasted teens think the family home of a known mass-murderer who keeps coming back to life is a great place to meet up and fool around in. Jason's reaction to this is pretty much what you'd expect. Meanwhile Ash has snuck into the basement and found the book. Upon hearing what is quit literally "bloody murderer" occurring above him, Ash rushes upstairs and has an almost fatal encounter with the hulking slasher. Fortunately Ash proves why he;s the Chosen one and not only escapes with his life but also the book and one of the teens. Another side note I said before that Leatherface put up a better fight then any mortal man against Jason before, well lets just say that Ash is going to out do him here. But as we all know by now, what Jason lacks in smarts he makes up for with single-minded determination. Jason tracks ash back to S-Mart and after another battle leaves with the book...and very likely some of Ash's ego to.

Once he gets home, Jason holds the book up in front Freddy's severed head and before you can say "Klaatu Berata Nicto" , Freddy's back. Freddy says thanks and makes to leave when Jason grabs his arm.......the deal. Freddy acquiesces and uses the Necronomicon to "jump start" some of Jason's brain cells making him a bit smarter. He then asks Jason to get rid of Ash while he uses the book. Ash and a ragtag group he's pulled together head out to stop Freddy when they bump into Jason. Ash leaves Jason to his team while he goes for Freddy (Ash learned of Freddy through an early attack in his dreams). The team try to lure Jason into a trap and get a disapproving wag of the finger from the now smarter Jason for their trouble. Ash mean while bursts in to stop Freddy.......only to find Freddy's pulled an Ozymandias and and finished reading 10 minutes ago. Freddy now wields reality warping powers in the physical world as well as the dream one. Jason seems to sense that Freddy has ticked him and the battle becomes a 3 way. During the battle, Ash blasts of Jason's mask (and his nose and some of the skin around his mouth. Also after losing an arm Jason copies Ash's Chainsaw by thrusting his machete into the stump. Eventually Ash and Co are able to used the Necronomicon to open a portal and trap Freddy in the deadite realm. Jason, who is trying to kill Ash, gets run over by one of the team driving Ash's car and sent under the ice of Crystal Lake trapping him once more. Once Freddy is dealt with Ash tosses the book into the lake. But as I said before...with monsters its never really over.

I haven't talked about Jason's kills much here. Well the highlights include, stabbing someone multiple times then crushing them and the bed into the worlds largest sandwich, spinning someones head 180 digrees, marching through a corn field, while on fire and getting slasher happy and using a shooing trolley so simultaneously smash and slice some teens.

Deadite Jason

4787781-1580841103-DUkA5.jpgSEP090206-05._QL80_TTD_.jpg

Some time later Jason awakens under the ice of crystal lake. An apparition of his mother compels him so seek and destroy Ash. At the same time a group of government agents have arrived in the area, seeking the Necronomicon for Project: Black Book. While the book is taken to the Pentagon, the team members left behind are killed by Jason who then he's off to find Ash. 6 months later we catch up with Ash and see that he has settled down with a new girlfriend and living a happy life. However during this time he is confronted by Dr. Maggie Burroughs, the daughter of Freddy. She informs Ash that Freddy and Jason WILL come back. they always do, and she wants to put together a group made up of all the people who have beaten them before and work out a way to finish them for good. Ash tell her no. Some time later while Ash is out, Jason breaks into his home and murders his girlfriend. Ash gets the murder pinned on him by her father but is save by none other then Tommy Jarvis. Tommy and Ash head over to Maggie's place were they also meet up with Stephanie Kimble (Jason's great-niece) and her father Steven Freeman, Tina Shepard (the psychic girl who battled Jason), Rennie Wickham (the emphatic girl Jason in New York), Alice Johnson (the dream master) and her son Jacob. While this team of survivors talks about what to do, Jason is captured and brought to the Pentagon's Deadite holding cell. While there Jason is contacted by an old enemy, Freddy. Turns out Freddy was summoned out of the Deadite real, seemingly depowered and is currently being held near by. Unfortunately Freddy has just been playing possum and has in truth, bonded with the Necronomicon and possesses all of its powers. While Jason at first attacks Freddy, the dream demon offers Jason the chance to rule the world with him and to give him greater power. Power enough to kill the old enemies massing to to attack them, enemies like Tommy. This gets Jason's attention and he agrees. Freddy then uses his power restore and  empower Jason, the new General of his Deadite Army!

Deadite Jason is a far cry from any of his previous designs, even his original.  His body has been restored and more so, is skin is a natural healthy color and he's even sporting an full, mane of hair. His cloths have likewise been fixed, he's now sporting clean blue genies, a back jumper and a brand new jacket with big pockets for pointy things. His mask has been restored to the complete and undamaged state of his Original design. Freddy also grants Jason two new machetes with his signature scratch marks on the blades. Under the mask Jason's face is not only restored but improved, he is no longer deformed or rotting.....in fact he looks like a normal person. Even his eyes have been restored to their original blue. But he is still the monster fulled by an unquenchable thirst for vengeance. A fact made very clear when, for the first and last time Jason speaks in his own body and voice "You...You....Dye!"

With Jason at the head of his army, Freddy takes control of Washington. Ash and the Nightmare Warriors confront this army of darkness for the fate of the world. Tommy eventually has his fated rematch with Jason and almost gains the upper hand...until Jason speaks to him, making him drop his guard. As Jason is about to strike the final blow, Stephanie (wearing a very similar hocky mask to her great uncles) stabs Jason in the back and Tommy uses the destraction to behead him. Eventually Frieddy is also defeated.

But once the battle is over, Jason's body is nowhere to be found....

"No matter what they do to you...you cannot dye...you can never dye"
