Quotes:

  • Ned: He neglected to mention that downtown they call this place Camp Blood.
     
  • Pamela Voorhees: You know a boy drowned the year before those two others were killed? The counsellors weren't paying any attention...They were making love while that poor boy drowned. His name was Jason.
     
  • Bill: If this is a joke, I'm gonna brain em'.
     
  • Pamela Voorhees: Why I'm... I'm Mrs. Voorhees, an old friend of the Christy's.
     
  • Bill: You think you're gonna last all summer?
    Alice: I'm not sure I'll last all week.
     

Trivia:

  • During the first few weekends of the film's release, makeup/effects artist Tom Savini would go into theaters for the last five minutes of the show to see the audience react to Jason emerging from the lake and grabbing Alice.
     
  • The fake ending scene in which Alice is attacked by Jason, was shot three times. Once in September, then October and finally in November; when the temperature was 28 degrees outside.
     
  • Estelle Parsons was originally signed on to play Mrs. Voorhees.
     
  • Makeup designer Tom Savini thought up the idea of Jason's surprise appearance at the end of the movie.
     
  • Steve Christy is named after Steve Miner, Associate Producer for the film.
