What if, you wrote a friday the 13th movie?

Recommended Posts

Part IV: 

The Jarvis family has taken an unconscious Alice into their home. They cannot take her to a hospital, or even out of the Crystal Lake Area, as the tree that Alice crashed into is blocking the main road. Additionally, the storm has knocked down the phone lines, so they cannot inform the police. Tommy is fourteen, with a similar personality and interests. The group of teens staying in the rental house across the street is largely the same, and they are introduced as they interact with the Jarvis family. 

We get time to bond with Tommy and his family before everything hits the fan. Alice wakes up later that night, and thinks that it is all over when they hear about the police investigations of the Higgins Haven and Pacanack massacres. However, when hearing that Chris survived but Jason was not found, she begins to worry. Jason soon arrives, now using the axe that was once lodged in his head. He still wears the baghead, and is very enraged. Alice desperately tries to convince the Jarvis' that Jason is coming, but they do not believe her until Jason starts picking off the teens in very brutal ways. Soon enough, Jason makes his way to the Jarvis house as the surviving teens retreat there. Alice teams up with Tommy and Trish to defend themselves after the mother is defenestrated.  A long battle ensues, and the last teen is shoved into a fireplace which starts a small fire in the house. Eventually, Alice is grabbed by Jason here, and she uses a can of hairspray as a flamethrower, burning off Jason's baghead. His head is a combination of the original part 2 and 3. 

Alice retreats, and Jason goes after Trish, much like he did in the original Part IV. Tommy shaves his head and attempts to trick Jason, but because this Jason does not have disassociative body disorder, he slams Trish's head into the wall, killing her. Tommy is assaulted by Jason, but is saved by Alice, who returns with a chainsaw. She and Jason duke it out, ending with her grazing his torso before slamming it into the side of his head, much as Tommy did with the machete in the original. Jason is finally dead (not), and Alice and Tommy are the only survivors. The film ends as they huddle together as the police arrive, having tracked Alice's car to the area.

Part V:

It has been another two years since Jason's defeat. Skepticism arose after the ambulance carrying Jason's body crashed into the lake, causing the body and the ambulance to be lost. The only survivor of the crash was paramedic Roy Burns. (Yep, he is here.) (He had intentionally sabatoged the ambulance so that he could commit the murders at the mental care facility and frame a supposedly living Jason)

Tommy and Chris are both being treated at this facility. They have become close thanks to their shared experiences. Alice makes a cameo during a visitation, but is otherwise absent, now working at Camp Forest Green, yet another area of the lake. 

We see Roy dressed as Jason (wearing a hockey mask) infiltrate the house of the head doctor, where he plots to kill him in his sleep. However, when he turns the man over to stab him, he see's that his throat has been cut. He stifles a scream as the real Jason impales him against the wall. We get a brief view of his face, which is now heavily scarred and missing an eye. He survived the events of Part IV, and now takes Roy's mask as his own.

Jason now uses a large hacksaw as his primary weapon. He is just as capable as ever. He attacks the facility, which causes Tommy and Chris to lead the survivors in an offensive against Jason. This goes poorly, with it all ending up with Tommy and Chris at the top of the barn seen in the original Part V. Jason knocks Tommy to the ground, and uses the opportunity to saw into Chris' head, starting with her eyes. Tommy fashions a noose and puts it around Jason's neck as he does this. Jason gets Tommy in a choke hold, but Tommy tackles him and they fall out of the barn. Tommy falls to the ground while Jason is hanged, apparently dead again.

The film ends with Tommy patching himself up, only to return and find Jason gone. Tommy correctly suspects that he is headed toward Camp Forest Green, and he rushes off through the woods to warn Alice.

Part V

We open to two kids, who are about ten years old, walking together at night. They are a cute couple, but run into Jason, who kills them. Their screams alert Alice, who immediately suspects that Jason is back. She gathers the counselors and children into the main cabin, arming the counselors with guns and instructing the children to remain quiet. She and one of the other counselors go to investigate, where they run into Tommy, who explains the situation. They quickly search for the children.

Meanwhile, a few counselors abandon the main cabin for some illicit activity. Jason catches up to them and eliminates them. This alerts the children and loyal counselors, who take a few shots at him, but miss. Alice and Tommy, as well as the other counselor return to find Jason inside the main cabin, hunting children and counselors alike. Many children are killed indiscriminately. In my opinion, Jason resents other children for the bullying he endured before drowning. The counselors band together to fight Jason, and everyone dies horribly except Tommy and Alice. Jason slashes Tommy's head, severely injuring him. This gives Alice enough time to grab a rifle and shoot Jason. He is visibly injured as Alice rams a decorative katana into Jason's skull, finally killing him. She manages to contact the police, saving Tommy from blood loss and finally ending the Camp Crystal Lake murders.

Part VII

Alice is living at home, with a new husband and a pregnancy. She is good friends with her neighbors, the Hilton's. Someone starts killing off the people near her in brutal ways. She suspects Jason, and contacts the police, who escort her and her family away from her home, which was visibly trapped. However, a truck rams the vehicle, severely injuring the officers and killing her husband. A man dressed as Jason steps out and executes the officers while Alice retreats to anearbye home, where a large group of teens are having a rad party dude. The imposter Jason begins murdering everyone until Alice is the only one left. They duel, resulting in Alice getting stabbed in the stomach. She manages to remove the mask from the killer, revealing that he is an insane Tommy, who believes that he is Jason. She decapitates him before breaking down over the loss of her child.

Part VIII

Jason returns, having been resurrected after a downed power line near his grave electrifies the water soaked ground. He is now a full on zombie Jason, and nigh immortal. He goes after Alice in a H20 style film, with Alice finally putting Jason down for good. Jason stalks the reopened Camp, killing dozens before he and Alice engage in one final fight. I have not imagined any specifics about this film, but the only important part is the Jason vs Alice concept. 

In the end, Alice has impaled Jason to the ground with a metal beam. She pours gasoline all over him before setting him ablaze. She uses a long weed wacker similar to the one Jason used in the original Part VII to decapitate him. She watches as his body is completely burned away, until nothing remains but a charred skeleton, which she pulverizes with a sledgehammer. Jason is at last finally, definitively dead.

Very interesting thread. It comes to happen that i've been writing a draft for a screenplay for some days/weeks now. The rough outline of the film is near the half of the full movie (about 30+ pages up till now.). I won't tell how i imagine to "reboot" Friday the 13th, because i know that when i do, i will lose the fire i have about this project. 

What i can say is, that i imagine it very different than you guys. I don't use any counselors that already existed. No black magic. No facilities. 

I imagine it to be more grounded, non exploitive and a lot more psychological.

If I was a good script writer but it would be about Jason killing his bullies, and one of the bullies recognising him. Oh how I want to hear, "I'm so sorry Jason"

I think I would pick the movie up from what happens after part 7. I don't really consider Jason part 8 as a Canon movie but I would like to do something that would tie part 8 / 9 and  Freddy versus Jason all together And explain things in between that absolutely make no sense, about the movies.like when Jason turns back into a kid at the end of Jason Takes Manhattan, but when Part 9 starts out he's just still Jason around the camp which makes no sense to me. I would like to have more explanation about that .

If I wrote a Friday the 13th film it would be about Jason killing counselors at the lake during summer camp :D

But seriously. I know that would suck, and it has already been done in Halloween: Resurrection, but i'd make the same movie but with Jason.
Young people taken to Crystal Lake to make a reality show with a fake Jason, but the real Jason kills'em all.
I thought of this years before Halloween: Ressurection...
It's stupid, but what else can you come up to?

There has been an idea to do a Friday the 13th found footage movie. Thanks to god it was canned.

I was actually against the found footage movie at first but after seeing never hike alone it could be pretty good

I would make the found footage film anyway.

Because ANY new movie about Jason will suck anyway, and nobody will EVER make a new F13 movie good as the first 4 parts... so there's nothing to loose.

Fan will watch it anyway.

It would be probably better than Jason X or the reboot anyway.

Friday 13th: Part whatever...

Opening: A young boy runs into the woods chased by his older teenage bullies, finding an old cabin he enters to hide not turning his back from the door. It is dark inside. He can hear his tormenters calling outside, the air chills, a little rush of air at his back, suddenly he tenses up and his pupils turn black. His tormenters are upon him and open the door to face this sickly looking child. Grabbing him and throwing him outside the young boy sits seemingly helpless and traumatised. As one bully lunges for an attack the boy with unnatural reflexes snaps his arm and breaks his neck. The others suddenly look stunned with fear. The boy finishes them off one by one, leaving the lead bully last. His death the more gruesome with his eyes pushed into his brain. The boy walks back into the cabin where a glowing object that turns out to be a head speaks too him softly. Under its control the boy becomes a vassal for Jasons return!

Jump forward 10 years and we meet a police open case squad mainly of new rookies tasked with taking on the chase of finding the presumed murdered boys in the woods. They stumble across the cabin to find it empty but do uncover the remains of the bullies and a potential evidence lead further on. Unfortunately there vehicle wont start when they return to it and have to make camp nearby. In a frightful first night the group get picked off by the new Jason one by one, seamlessly firing their guns out shadows in the dark. One officer stumbles away to come across a near to being opened holiday camp. This is where the main characters are.

The camp is hosting a bikini contest among a few other PR stunts before opening, and they are shocked at the state and the story of the lone officer that night. Unfortunately for them Jason has been following the blood trail right too them and they are soon under assault at the main complex building where the officer is being treated. The power is cut and there is no way of communicating to the outside world. The car park is located on the other side and there is disagreement within the group at what to do. Half split and make a break for it to the cars where they are picked off by Jason. The last survivors are eventually forced out of the building and run through the trees, actually goaded by Jason to his new hideout like sheep to a pen. When they get there they find Jason hasn't actually killed all his victims although they have horrific wounds. Jason has built an even grander alter to the head and is sacrificing his victims periodically too it. Presumably to sustain its evil power. As the end seems final for the last survivors the main girl is about to be killed. She punches and kicks high before landing two crucial shots with the heels of her shoes in his eye sockets. Momentarily stunned the police officer breaks free and attacks Jason. Jason hurls him at the alter killing him and the final girl retreats to the corner next to his body. In her shock she knocks over a set of candles that singes the head. Jason squirms in pain, seeing this she sets the head totally alight. As the head screams Jason stumbles over to it trying to put the fire out. The girl seizes her chance and begins to burn the building to the ground. She pulls the last wounded survivors free as the timber collapses on Jason. Both he and the head are consumed by fire.

Ending. Recovering in hospital the police inform them of the investigation into the incident, but no evidence of Jason or a head is found in the ashen remains. Scene cuts to the police team on site,  crows squawk and flying away as the police officers turn round in confusion before shrugging and turning back to their work. Film ends.

- That's my basic undeveloped idea, I haven't divulged into characters or specific deaths for bloat reasons. Just enough to give you a basic idea. Your thoughts?

My movie would open with Jason picking up his split in half Part 7 mask, then forward to 3 bank robbers that just robbed a bank on the run, they get caught in a blizzard and end up stranded at Crystal Lake with the cops on their trail and Jason wearing his "sewn together" Part 7 mask. Jason kills a bank robber later in the film taking his perfect condition Part 8 mask and his part 8 clothes. The film ends with Jason getting hit in the head with a machete (giving him the part 8 axe mark) and falling into Camp Crystal Lake. Final shot of the movie would be the boat from Jason Takes manhattan opening scene with the guy fishing and reeling in the Part 8 mask.

I want to make a winter themed movie that is different and also explains where the fuck Jason got his new outfit while under water, new gloves etc and why a "fake" Jason mask has the axe mark. Oh and Thom Mathews would be in it :)

I would have it set in modern day and not a direct sequel to any of the existing movies. 

 

It would start with the character of Jimmy J who runs a search for jason weekend tour business. 

It would be like those groups that have a fun weekend package camping out but instead of looking for aliens, big foot or the Loch Ness monster, it's yours truly - the legend of jason vorhees. 

A group of jason fans -  a stoner, hipster,  athletic dude, intellectual smart ass, slutty girls (stereotypes right :) hop aboard Jimmy's camper bus and head towards the old crystal lake for the weekend. 

They visit some of the areas led by jimmy who recounts horrific stories on the savage massacres that have taken place. Jimmy also has some surprises planned for the group with actors out at the camp, screwing with them, but as Jimmy finds the one of the dead actors, this means one thing - jason is no legend, he's real!

I had an idea for a prequel trilogy that sets up Jason Goes to Hell. The premise would be that Jason Goes to Hell is actually its own seperate continuity, which consists of: Friday the 13th (1980), reboot 1, reboot pt. 2, reboot pt. 3, JGTH, FVJ, and Jason X. Ash from Evil Dead would make a guest appearance

So I don't mean to bring a thread back from the dead but this is something I've thought about plenty.

I would make Friday the 13th: Part XIII - Jason Dies
I would make it clear from the get go - in all the advertisement and such that Jason is going to be done. Part 13 is the last movie, period.

Here's what I would do for the canon.

1. Part 1 up through FvJ would be canon. They happened.

2. Jason X is not canon, but it exists in canon. People are screwed up. Jason has become a myth, a legend. So people come up with myths and legends and Jason X is one such version - a hack science fiction writer got a movie made about serial killer Jason Vorhees going to space. (Not unlike how there are shlocky movies in the real world depicting space Hitler or other bizarre scenarios in b or even c-horror.) The remake is just someone's retelling of the first three movies as a "docu-drama," and therefore is also "within canon but not canon."

The premise would be simple.

Winter has come to Crystal Lake. Forgotten are the days of the bloodshed, the camp ground now hosts winter camp for scouts and other groups and organizations. Jason hasn't been disturbed for years - perhaps times have changed. Yet when a gang trespasses into his territory while dumping a body, they come face to face with the undead killer. Jason begins to stalk the camp grounds, but as the bodies of the gang members surface, it draws the attention of law enforcement and an older and haunted Tommy Jarvis, leading to what will be a frozen showdown with the unkillable.

I'm not posting my idea because I'm going to actually make it someday, even if it's just a fan film like Never Hike Alone.

Like the idea but I hate films with subtitles like "Jason Dies" ... totally gives away the ending. Same with "Freddy's Dead", I didn't see the point in watching it as the outcome was already confirmed.

I'm actually serious about making a legit Friday fan film. It's going to feature sackhead Jason and I'm going to film the majority of it in my backyard, and other parts at a friend's house because there's an abandoned shack in his backyard that I wanna use for Jason's house.

Well, as far as the film with "Jason's Dead" or what not, I'd choose it because I'd want people to ask if it's a literal meaning or metaphorical.

So, the idea gestated in my head for fun.

I'm picturing this as the opening to the very last (and 13th!) installment of Friday the 13th.

It's winter time. The lake has frozen over. Years removed from the events of FvJ, it appears Crystal Lake has new cabins, built not just for the summer, but for the winter as well. Nobody is there however. Headlights can be seen. A bunch of gang members are driving into the woods to dump a body - after all, if a body surfaces on Crystal Lake, everyone will blame the entity called "Jason," a notorious serial killer that died yet every so many years people claim has come back to life.

One of these gang members is newer, and has serious reservations. It's noticed. Several of the more experienced gang members realize that this kid doesn't have the stomach for it, but he knows too much and has seen too much. But because this is a Friday movie and most folks aren't *that* intelligent in these movies, they decide to play a little game with this new blood. So they march him through the woods and offer him a chance to be a full member in the gang. Sure enough they find the run down shack that Jason dwelled in from Part 2. They go in and investigate, with the gang members saying that the newcomer has to look death in the eye - sure enough they find Pamela's head, now nothing more than a skull and the ruins of the shirt that Ginny once donned to trick him.

At that point, a gun gets put to the back of the head of the newbie. "Sorry kid, you just can't be trusted to be one of us." The gun goes off. The kid dies, but a figure bursts through the walls. Jason was idle, dormant even perhaps, but his dormant state was disturbed by the gang members. They shoot at him and he does nothing but shrug it off. One of Jason's hands has fingers missing from his fight with Freddy, and he seems frosted over by the cold, but he relentlessly pursues the gang members.

One by one they fall, until the leader crosses the frozen over Crystal Lake. Jason stares. He tilts his head. The ice breaks and the lake swallows the leader whole.

Cut to the credits. Friday the 13th Part XIII: The Death of Jason Vorhees.

We then cut in to a survivor's meeting - all the final girls that survived the events of the previous movies (not counting the remake or Jason X.) And the movie begins from there.

This time, a camp is opened up for winter, and a dangerous blizzard strands the campers there. The story would involve the surviving final girls, the return of Tommy Jarvis (maybe take an inspiration from Never Hike Alone(?)) and of course a new cast of killable counselors. Children are actually at the cabins however, leading to a number of *tense as hell* scenes (which of course, anyone who knows the character knows he probably wouldn't hurt a kid, but the question could still be asked.) Somehow the story would end with Jason's death in some way shape or fashion, but not necessarily a physical death. Surely he would be defeated, but he'd leave behind a massive body count.

So i was mulling, what would i like to see in a friday the 13th film, how would i make it different, remain true to the films but make it stand apart from the others.

Now i'm sure not many would go for it, but for me. Really trying to grasps Jason's emotional state and motivation for his killings is where i would delve. I'm sorry sean.s but jason like the shark from jaws i get, but it isn't enough. Even the shark has a motivation, he is hungry. So what is jason's gig.

Well i would do a core movie with most the same established rules of genre in place. Jason is still living in the wilderness and along comes some teens. He could let these guys and gals be, they'll be gone in a few days but he won't. Why?

To figure it all out we have to go back to the beginning. His relationship with his mom. Really pick that scab off and let it bleed. 

I would have scenes of recollection and memory. What was christmas like? Did she read to him? Deep stuff. The film i'd like to see is jason the brute in one moment and a jason that has you feeling truly sympathetic to him.

I imagine scenes with him in his shack he has broke his shrine in anger because he truly understands she is dead and that is the end but he cant get over it. Imagine a jason looking somewhat beaten clutching his mothers head, audible gruntish sounds that are clearly a man in pain.

Oh but here they are the teens...he looks at his mother, the hate burns in his one good eye and he sets off. I would try to iterate that each kill is not vengeance for mom but a reliving of her demise a chance for him to change history. I would try to convey that if he inherited anything it was her overwhelming protectiveness and in each kill that is what he thinks he is doing, Protecting his mother. 

He can't ignore the tresspassors. They will hurt his mom again. It's all they are there for (in his mind) he is not being territorial he protecting his only family. Alive or dead, but in order to see and understand that. We have to see him at his weakest.

Oh but the kills they would be hate filled and brutal!...

 

Wow !! What an imagination you have. May I use this post as inspiration when I come to that part in my screenplay ? I am on script buddy ,message me if y'all want the code to read what I have so far and feel free to contribute, for a co-writing  credit , of course.

The subtitle jason or freddy or any of them being 'dead' was supposed to be MISLEADING as EVIL never dies. How many sequels since then for freddy or jason ?  But , I agree,with you, we all know the monster SEEMINGLY dies at the end of each movie going in, but they could've been more ORIGINAL with the title. They really wanted freddy  to be dead, but that won't ever happen to freddy or jason until we see them burning in HELL. But, it's FICTION so yeah, they can still come back.So the subtitle is as fake as jason or freddy . Great comment !!

So I posted one idea for a Friday movie, here's another one I had:

It's modern day. We start off with two separate groups of people coming to Crystal Lake. One is a pair of girls, who have heard of Crystal Lake as an abandoned set of cabins down near the lake. One is a total hot mess, always losing everything, totally messed up, it's her car and it's a total old banger full of junk, etc. etc. She's just been through a bad break-up, and the other is her sporty athletic friend, who's come on this trip with her to try and take her mind off of things.

Meanwhile, there's an extremely obnoxious Logan Paul-style Youtube 'celebrity' in town, filming segments for his show. He has a whole entourage of hanger-ons and technical people who help him make his show, many as obnoxious and annoying as he is. Couple of slutty girls who just want fame. His 'best friend' who's as obnoxious as he is. A technical advisor who's actually kind of the straight guy and a bit of a Jason expert. He films himself basically trolling the people of Crystal Lake about Jason, asking about him, people never responding or trying to ignore him, mugging for the camera as he does, generally being an infuriating spoiled brat.

The two groups decide to head independently down to the actual abandoned Camp Crystal Lake. The Youtuber and his crew hike planning to camp on the way to film more segments in the woods and generally screw around (disrespecting nature along the way, generally being awful people) while the girls drive. Unfortunately, the roads to Camp Crystal Lake haven't been used in decades, and the girls get their car stuck in the mud. Unable to get it free, they hear the Youtubers nearby, and end up joining up with them.

We see a bit of a change in the obnoxious Youtuber guy. He suddenly seems friendly, generous, to the two girls. He offers them his tent for the night, he's accommodating & supportive, but persuades them to come with their group to Crystal Lake and free their car on the way back rather than sort it out now. They are eventually talked in to it.

Around the campfire, the obnoxious Youtuber continues his video, telling how he's encountered the two girls, and filling them in on the Jason legend (with various corrections from Jason fanboy technical guy). Hot mess girl gets pretty scared, but her friend convinces her that it's just the obnoxious guy trying to scare them. "Sounds like the kind of bullshit you'd make ten movies and a crossover about." she says. In the middle of the night though, they start hearing strange noises, and then a scream, and then something brushes by their tent, and Jason attacks! They run away, seeming to escape, Jason plodding after them slowly, and end up totally lost in the woods. Jason looks interesting. It's not a bad look, but his hockey mask looks pretty new, he's not particularly zombified at all, his clothes are in a reasonable state, etc. (I'd actually have him looking a LOT like Roy, bald head, overalls, even the same mask, for reasons in a minute).

Soon it's early morning, and the two girls are trekking through the woods, when they hear voices. They approach to see the Youtube guys, who are in the midst of discussing their 'prank'. Yes, one of them is wearing a Jason costume, with the hood removed, and their laughing about the great footage they got of the girls being scared. If I had my way and his costume was in fact very similar to Roy's, this would include some kind of fannish little in-joke where the obnoxious Youtuber is berating the person in the Jason costume for getting the hockey mask wrong, and have it with Roy's blue chevrons rather than Jason's ("No, you idiot, that was the copycat killer! Jason's are RED!" etc.). The girls are naturally furious, of course, and confront the guys about this. Obnoxious Youtuber guy is back to being his obnoxious self, being all 'don't blame me, it was great for the show!' and laughing about it. Hot mess girl wants to leave but her friend convinces her to carry on to Crystal Lake, she still needs the break, and explains she can dump the others as soon as they're there.

Getting nearer to Crystal Lake, Youtuber guy explains he's going to film some footage of 'Jason' in the woods for his video, and the girls just sort of roll their eyes and decide to leave him to it, carrying on towards the lake. While he's setting up his shot, Jason comes bursting out of the woods. This time his hockey mask is in ruins, but correct, his bones and flesh are hanging off, he's badly zombified and clearly very old, his clothes brown with filth and hanging off of him in places. Obnoxious Youtuber guy is thrilled at how much better his costume is looking.

Except OF COURSE this is the real Jason. And he kills Obnoxious Youtuber in a really brutal, over-the-top manner, because by this point, god should we feel this guy deserves it. (Personally, I like the idea 'cuts off his arm, and then pins him down and force feeds it down his throat until he suffocates' as an over-the-top Jason death).

Meanwhile, the girls reach Crystal Lake, and go for a swim. Maybe there's even something romantic between them? It's Friday the 13th, you need a little sexiness in it, right?

We cut between the girls and the start of the slaughter of the Youtube guy's entourage. His Jason actor comes face to face in costume with the real Jason, real Jason slices his fake machete in half and then beheads him, giving fans that 'Jason vs. Roy' moment they've always wanted (in a very loose sense). The rest of them run, maybe some more are picked off one by one, cutting between that and the fun/flirty swim between the two girls.

The survivors crash the camp site, screaming to the girls, who of course at first don't believe them and think it's another prank. That is until Jason shows up and starts killing them. What follows is a sequence in a more traditional Friday the 13th sense as they race through the old cabins, trying to avoid Jason. I'd probably even throw in a gag about the game on there. "The phone is out, but I bet if we find a fuse, I could repair the fusebox and get it working!" "Ooooor we could just use my satellite phone..."

There'd be an element of a theme of Jason being in modern day now. Phones, cameras, they make his life a little harder. But when they try to phone for help, we get the hints of a conspiracy. As soon as the teens report they're at Crystal Lake, the police hang up. Various attempts to call back don't work. Hot mess girl realises that she got an e-mail about Crystal Lake as an ideal get away for campers looking to be alone, and the techie guy from the Youtuber group reveals that he was working on fan messages for obnoxious Youtuber guy and somebody suggested coming here. And both suggested coming on the same date.

Friday the 13th.

They realise that this is Crystal Lake's way of controlling Jason. They've been manipulating teenagers in to coming down there for years to be sacrificed to him, to stop Jason from ever leaving Crystal Lake and starting another killing spree beyond its borders. The survivors vow that there's no way they're going to be bait for Jason, and try to figure out a way to fight back. Techie guy explains that the legend is all about Jason's mother controlling him, so they set up and plant their phones where they know Jason will follow, and hot mess girl fakes being Pamela, speaking through the phone so Jason 'hears' her voice out of the phone's loud speaker. They tell Jason that he's done now. He can rest. He doesn't need to kill anymore.

This seems to confuse Jason, but after a moment, he seems to head off in to the woods, away from the survivors. By now, there's only hot mess girl, her friend, and techie guy left. Techie guy wants to run, but hot mess girl who's coming in to her own as a hero, realises that Jason won't be fooled forever, and they won't make it far before he kills them. She convinces the others to follow him, and follow him they do... leading them to Jason's shack. Where they see him kneeling down, in front of the decomposed head of Pamela.

Hot mess girl comes up with a plan, that if they can't kill Jason, they need to destroy Pamela forever. They formulate a plan using some old gasoline from the camp to burn Jason's shack (and Pamela's head) to the ground. Her athletic friend agrees to distract Jason, leading to a pretty terrifying chase sequence where she tries to evade him, while the other two dump gasoline all over the shack and burn it down.

Jason seems to sense this just before he's about to finish off athletic girl, and immediately returns to the shack. Techie guy and hot mess girl run, but he grabs techie guy and pulls him in to the shack, leaving him to burn to death. Jason then enters the shack, catching on fire, but still stands to watch as Pamela's head burns to ashes.

For a moment, it looks like this has worked, and Jason has entered the shack to burn with his mother, but instead of stopping Jason, it seems to backfire. Jason emerges from the shack, now on fire, and he's PISSED. He attacks hot mess girl, but this time he isn't going for the kill. He beats her savagely, and shows real anger and rage, burning her and smashing her around, but refusing to kill her. When he finally decides to finish her off, he lifts his machete to impale her, but athletic girl throws herself in front of it, taking the blow for her. They get their final look, before Jason throws her aside, but hot mess girl scrambles to escape.

Jason chases her back to Camp Crystal Lake, still smouldering, and she manages to use a remaining gas can to throw it over Jason, again reigniting him from the smouldering flames. Jason rampages, and in the process, sets the ruins of Camp Crystal Lake ablaze, burning it to the ground. It collapses on Jason, burying him beneath the burning rubble, and it seems with Camp Crystal Lake dying, so does finally Jason Voorhees...

Hot mess girl is the only survivor as dawn breaks, and she begins to limp back towards the road, badly wounded. It's a long walk back to civilisation, and she's in bad shape, but she's determined to make it.

Silence falls over the ruins of Camp Crystal Lake. And then, of course, Jason bursts from the rubble, burned and charred, his mask blackened and melted in to his face, but as unstoppable as ever. And he sets off down the road after hot mess girl. Back towards civilisation. There's nothing at Crystal Lake for him now.

Jason is about to be unleashed on the rest of the world.
