Jason Voorhees is the main antagonist and villain protagonist of the 1981 slasher horror film Friday the 13th Part 2 and the rest of the Friday the 13th movies and its 2009 remake (except for the first one and the fifth one). He is a hockey-masked, immortal, zombified, undead serial killer. He is nominated in AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains and Wizard Magazine rated him the 26th greatest villain of all time.

He was most frequently portrayed by Kane Hodder and many other actors such as Ari Lehman, Steven Daskawisz, Warrington Gillete, Richard Brooker, Ted White, Tom Morga, C.J Graham, Ken Kirzinger and Derek Mears in the 2009 remake.


Friday the 13th

Jason Voorhees was born in the small town of Crystal Lake on June 13, 1946 to Pamela Sue and Elias Voorhees as a hydrocephalic, making him physically deformed. Because of this, his mother never took him to school, and was extremely overprotective of him. Pamela later took a job as a cook at Camp Crystal Lake, where the other campers would frequently bully Jason because of his deformity. One night, having had enough of the constant abuse from the bullies, Jason drowned when he dived into Crystal Lake to prove that he could swim. The camp counselors did nothing, as they were busy having a party in one of the adult cabins. Pamela proceeded to kill many of the camp counselors and campers as revenge, before one of them, Alice, decapitated her.
