It’s Friday The 13th, Let’s Celebrate Jason’s Crotch Murder

Friday The 13th

Happy Friday the 13th, the day of the year in which bad luck runs rampant. Having the 13th fall in October is especially spook, so we thought we’d find a way to link up the horror movie franchise with our duty here at the Ball Report. After watching all the films, we noticed that Jason steers clear of the below-the-belt area pretty often, but every once in a while he goes low. Case in point: the death of Paul in Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter.

The fourth installment in the franchise certainly wasn’t the actual final chapter in any sense of the word, but it did try to open things up a little bit. Camp Crystal Lake isn’t in session this time around – instead, Jason is targeting a group of teenagers who came out in the offseason to get their swerve on, including a young Crispin Glover. In the house next door is a family, the Jarvises, who will also get swept up in the carnage.

Jason gets plenty of kills throughout the flick, but early on he impales Samantha (Judie Aronson) as she’s floating on a raft after a solo skinny-dipping sesh. When her boyfriend Paul comes looking for her, Jason is lying in wait beneath the water. The masked killer waits until Paul reacts in horror to his lady love’s corpse before bursting up with a harpoon and driving it right between Paul’s legs, lifting him high in the air.

It’s a rough way to die, but that’s what you get when you mess with Jason. Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!
