There are conflicting reports on when Jason was born. Today, on other horror websites, I have seen 1946 and 1947. If it were 1946, this fictional character would be 70. According to my Friday the 13th timeline, I did not explain Jason’s age or when he was born. But in my research, Pamela Voorhees was born in 1930 and has Jason when she was 16. That would make it 1946. June 13th, 1946 was in-fact a Friday…so yeah, Happy 70th Birthday to Jason Voorhees!
I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever.
