Marshall Access area
Lake Norman, NC
Kid friendly, ALMOST a drive up !
This BAD LUCK day came to theaters in the summer of 1980. After seeing this movie A Hockey Mask had nothing to do with playing a game on the ice.... and going to summer camp would never be the same again !!!
This movie is the first FRIDAY THE 13th !
This splatter flick, along with John Carpenter's Halloween, helped spawn the great horror-movie movement of the '80s, not to mention eight sequels, many of which had nothing to do with the films that preceded them. It also gave birth to Jason Voorhees The story gose like this.In 1957, A young boy named Jason Voorhees drowned. In 1958, two camp counselors were murdered, in 1962, the fires and bad water thwarted to reopen the Crystal Lake Camp. Now in 1979, Crystal Lake was finally reopened by Steve Christy, with the help of a few new counselors. Ignoring the warnings from a local wacko, the murders start once again by a mysterious stalker. It is Revenge that the killer is looking for? Who will survive the nightmare and live to tell the story?
Some interesting trivia about FRIDAY THE 13TH:
The movie was filmed at Camp Nobebosco in New Jersey. The camp is still in operation to date, and they have a wall of Friday the 13th paraphernalia to honor the fact that the movie was set there.
Kevin bacon's character, lying in bed with his throat impaled by an arrow, has the blood in his neck making little bubbles. Originally, it was just meant to seep out, but the arrangement of the tube with blood didn't work, and Tom Savini ended up blowing into the tube to make it flow, causing an unintended (but ultimately used) bubbling effect.
Composer Harry Manfredini has said that contrary to popular belief, "chi chi chi, ha ha ha" is actually "ki ki ki, ma ma ma". It is meant to resemble Jason saying "kill kill kill, mom mom mom
The film made $39,754,601 and had a budget of $550,000
Your search for Jason Vorhees begins at the Marshall Access area on Lake Norman. It's on HWY 150 between Denver and Mooresville. Turn onto Kiser Island Rd across from Marshall Steam Station. Take the first left and Follow the signs to Marshall Access Area. Drive in until you get to the parking lot. Behind the "Bathrooms" you will see a row of rocks. Behind this row of rocks, up on the hill is a large rock by itself. Jason Voorhees is in hiding under the back side of this rock, under a smaller rock and leaves.
Thank you for going TO THE MOVIES with us again !!! We hope you have had a good time.
Don't forget to look for the other movie box (#4) planted here too.
Please be sure to rehide well. The box is not a tight seal, so everything needs to be bagged good, including the outer bag. THANK YOU !!
Bring your own ink.... and your own pen.
This is #3 in a "Movie Marathon" of letterboxes we will be hiding all over the Piedmont of NC.
SUGGESTIONS FOR MOVIE TITLES would be appreciated !!!
