The film franchise has been running for a whopping 40 years now and 12 films later it doesn't look like it's going to end any time soon.
So here's 13 Friday the 13th movie facts to sink your knife into this Friday!
Oh and yes these do contain spoilers!
12 - In the original Friday the 13th film Pamela Voorhees was the original killer who was seeking revenge after the death of her son. After this the killer became Jason and it stays this way throughout the rest of the franchise. But did you know that there was a prequel mini comic book series released called Friday The 13th Pamela's Tale? The two part series was released in 2007.
11 - Camp Crystal Lake is a real place! Although it's actually called Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco and is currently a camp for Boy Scouts. The camp is located in Hardwick, NJ. There is also a real place called Camp Crystal in Florida.
10 - Out of all of the films only three of them are set on Friday the 13th. Part 1, Part 2 and the 2009 remake all take place on this date.
8 - Although Pamela is the killer in the original movie, it was actually a man who played the killer throughout the film until the big reveal.
7 -Before it was called Friday the 13th, the original title for the film was A Long Night At Camp Blood. Which would make total sense for all the films not actually set on Friday the 13th but let's be honest... Friday the 13th is much better.
6 - Five films so far have all been released actually on Friday the 13th. These are Part 3, The Final Chapter, Part 7, The Final Friday and the Friday the 13th remake.
4 - Jasons current total kill count from all 12 movies stands at 167 kills. Michael Myers has only killed 121... so far.
3 - Originally Jason was going to be called Josh but it was later changed as Jason sounded much better. Sean Cunningham who directed the original film thought Josh would easily be forgotten and as no sequels were originally planned he didn't mind, until someone convince him to change the name.
2 - In an original script idea for Freddy vs Jason it was meant to reveal that Freddy was actually a councillor at Camp Crystal Lake and had abused young Jason which would lead to his revenge. This idea was later dropped for the film we have now.
1 - When you think of Jason Voorhees you instantly think of the hockey mask wearing killer but he didn't actually wear the mask until Part 3.
