FRIDAY THE 13TH FACTS...
Legend: Friday the 13th is a day fraught with peril.
The reasons why Friday came to be regarded as a day of bad luck have been obscured by the mists of time — some of the more common theories link it to a significant event in Christian tradition said to have taken place on Friday, such as the Crucifixion, Eve's offering the apple to Adam in the Garden of Eden, the beginning of the Great Flood, or the confusion at the Tower of Babel. Chaucer alluded to Friday as a day on which bad things seemed to happen in the Canterbury Tales as far back as the late 14th century ("And on a Friday fell all this mischance"), but references to Friday as a day connected with ill luck generally start to show up in Western literature around the mid-17th century.
The origins of the connection between the number thirteen and ill fortune are similarly obscure. Many different sources for the superstition surrounding the number thirteen have been posited, the most common stemming from another Christian source, the Last Supper, at which Judas Iscariot was said to have been the thirteenth guest to sit at the table. (Judas later betrayed Jesus, leading to His crucifixion, and then took his own life.) This Christian symbolism is reflected in early Western references to thirteen as an omen of bad fortune, which generally started to appear in the early 18th century and warned that thirteen people sitting down to a meal together presaged that one of them would die within the year.
The modern reason for this is said to come from Friday October the 13th, 1307. On this date, the Pope of the church in Rome in conjunction with the King of France, carried out a secret death warrant Against "the Knights Templar". The Templars were terminated as heretics, never again to hold the power that they had held for so long. There Grand Master, Jacques DeMolay, was arrested and before he was killed, was tortured and crucified.
There are however many other stories behind it, some true and some urban legends.
Superstitions about Friday being lucky or unlucky day have existed since ancient times.
The number 13 has been considered unlucky for a long time. Early Romans thought 13 was a sign of death and destruction.
The fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia.

The Superstition Behind Friday the 13th
It's strange how society has come to accept "superstition" so plainly and unquestioning. Go to every hotel in the States and there is almost never a floor with the number 13 in it. However, if you should venture to a hotel in Italy, you will indeed find that 13 is not skipped over. In fact, a gold charm of the number is given to Italian infants to ensure good luck and prosperity in their developing life. Why then, is there such suspicion surrounding 13? Furthermore, ever wonder what makes Friday the 13th so "evil"? (Note: Friday the 13th was considered a day of bad luck and evil long before the movies came out!)
There are various theories surrounding 13. Since Christianity has had a extremely large influence on all societies as a whole, we shall look there first. At the "Final Supper" or "Last Supper" (whoever you chose to term it) there were 13 guests. Some believe Jesus to be the 13th at feast, occurring just before he was Crucified. This is a largely debatable theory, however. How does one know where to start counting? Many chose to go by the painting "The Last Supper," forgetting that this is an artist's interpretation of an event he did not attend. The painting depicts the disciples and Jesus at a table, but evidence suggests that the last supper was not conducted at a table. Rather the participants were seated on the ground where it was cooler. (The climate in Israel, at that time, suggests they would have stayed on the ground to keep cool.) Furthermore, where to start counting (when assuming the picture is accurate)? If one started with Judas, Jesus became the 13th guest. Conversely, if the count began at Jesus, it was indeed Judas who was 13. Both options would contribute to the mystique surrounding 13: Jesus, for he was killed soon after the feast, Judas for he was the betrayer of Jesus.
On an additional, though little proven, note, some have claimed to be a 13th tribe of Israel. The bible proclaims only 12, and a very high percentage of Christians and Jews deny that a 13th tribe even exist. However, a few recognize that a group had, falsely, identified themselves as a 13th tribe. The members of the "13th tribe" were labeled as "witches" and "sorcerers," an evil group who determine to destroy followers of God. Plainly, this does not lend any favor to 13, and adds more propaganda against Witchcraft. The fact that so many haven’t even heard of this 13th Tribe makes the probability of the labeling of "Witches" being accurate extremely low. (Furthermore, the low probability simply further illustrates the false propaganda Christian organizations are willing to put forth in order to label Witchcraft as evil.)
Friday the 13th comes into play when it is observed that Jesus was Crucified on a Friday. Obviously, should one chose to accept this theory, the day associated with the death of the Savior would lend to the supposed bad luck which occupies this particular date. It is said, also, that it was a Friday when Adam and Eve ate the fruit. Furthermore, Friday used to be the 6th day of the week, it was not until more recent times that it became the 5th day. 6, being the number biblically associated with man, relates to the Devil. 3 is the number of the Holy Trinity, therefore with 6 being the number of man, 666 was denoted as the number of the Beast. (A Trinity of Six, signifying the God of Man, Satan) One can hardly find this connection to Satan adding to the "good name" of Friday the 13th.
Also, any month with a Friday the 13th must begin with a Sunday the 1st. Curiosity leads one to ask if a significance lies in the observation that only months that begin with the day God decided to rest (Sunday), after "creating the world," yield a day of such supposed demonic evil and misfortune.
To the Norse Friday was the luckiest day of the week, being named after Freya, one of their Deities. Also named after Venus, in Rome and France. For Mohammedans, Friday after sunset is also the Sabbath. The implications connecting Darkness, and hence Sunset (the transition from light to dark), and Evil would indeed lend to the idea of misfortune which surrounds Friday the 13th, to those who find the Muslim path as evil and heathen. Mohammedans also say that Adam was created on a Friday. It can be seen that it is largely within the Christian ranks that Friday takes on a significant connotation of evil when teamed with the 13th.
To continue on, perhaps extending a bit further in the past than Christian influence, a mythological occurrence presents: At the banquet in Valhalla, of which there were 12 guests, Loki, God of Deceit, intruded, becoming the uninvited 13th guest. In Norse mythology, Balder was the god of light and beauty. The most beloved of the gods, he was the son of Odin and Frigg and the husband of Nanna, goddess of the Moon. Balder was killed by Loki’s treachery during the proceedings. Through Loki’s interference, the return of Balder, from the possession of Hel, was an impossible task. To return Balder, Hel demanded that all living things beg for the god’s return. All respond except a giantess, Thokk (Loki in disguise), whose refusal to weep forces Balder to remain in Hel's domain.
There are 13 members which make up a Wiccan/Pagan Coven to fully cast the Circle. 13 was sacred because it represented the amount of lunar months in year (Thirteen Full Moons). It has also been speculated that 13 was maximum # of people that could fit comfortably in a traditional Circle with a 9 foot diameter. 6 male-female couples and a priest or priestess.
Not so surprising is the understanding that 13, being a sacred number to most Pagan traditions, was therefore considered evil by early Christians. It took very little for the religious leaders to invent a dogma to counter the Pagan’s sacred number. The question can be posed: If the mystique surrounding 13 is not invented dogma, why then do hotels hold rooms labeled #666? Why is this number not also omitted? For a superstition to spread so far it must be distributed through a largely influential source, such as Christianity. Notice again, 13 is still considered good luck in Italy, home of the Roman Catholic church, which separated from the rest of Christianity due to conflicting political and theological disagreements. Moreover, Friday was considered sacred by both Norse traditions and Muslims, both which are considered enemies to Christianity. Instituting Friday the 13th as a day of evil worked to prevent losing followers to either path, utilizing fear as a binding weapon.
A recent article shows that a new superstition has been 'invented' involving the number 13. Now some serial killers has been bunched under the 13 letter group, and it goes something like this:
Jack the Ripper- 13 letters
John Wayne Gacy- 13 letters
Charles Manson- 13 letters
Jeffrey Dahmer- 13 letters
Theodore ( Ted ) Bundy- 13 letters
This latest bad press is bound to give the self-respecting normal 13s in the world an even worse time of it.
From here on, it can be seen how the "bad luck" attributed to Friday the 13th comes from peoples' assumption that the date carries evil in it's wake. Therefore, anything that goes wrong on the 13th is assumed to be the effect of some supernatural evil. The luck or unluck of any given number resides solely in the mind of the person, and within the realm of the boogie man. All the superstitions built up around Friday the 13th were political maneuvers, largely on the part of Christian religious leaders (but most definetly not the only offenders), to divert their followers minds from other spiritual paths.

The fear of Friday the 13th, technically known as paraskavedekatriaphobia, is thought to have its origins in the Bible, as it was on a Friday when Eve took a bite from the apple. The significance of the unlucky number 13 could date back to early Western civilisation, when it was thought to represent devil worship. Another theory is that the Knights Templar were decimated on Friday the 13th.
Friday the 13th is a popular series of American slasher films. All of the films feature Jason Voorhees either as the killer or as the motivation or inspiration for the killings. The original film was produced and directed by Sean S. Cunningham. Afterwards, the franchise was taken up by Frank Mancuso Jr. during its time with Paramount. When it was sold to New Line Cinema, Cunningham returned to oversee the franchise. Victor Miller, the writer of the original film, claims to have never seen any of the sequels.

Although each entry in the series is unique, they share many similar qualities. The setting is consistently in either Camp Crystal Lake or the surrounding suburbs, with three entries in New York City, outer space, and even Elm Street. The victims are usually teenagers or college-aged and frequently partake in recreational drug use and pre-marital sex.
The film series has a famous sound "theme", a repeating echoed noise created by Harry Manfredini, the series' composer, by saying "Kill her, mommy!" through a distorting effect.
Friday the 13th (1980)
Main article: Friday the 13th (film)
Despite warnings by the superstitious locals of a "Death Curse" Steve Christy hires a group of young people to help him re-open Camp Crystal Lake. Camp Blood is the name given to the camp by local residents as a result of the camp's dark history of tragedy and murder. The innocent roam the area while being stalked by a dark figure in the shadows, and are murdered one by one by an unseen assassin. In the end, the killer turns out to be a woman named Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer), who is seeking revenge for the accidental drowning of her physically deformed son Jason, whose death was the result of negligence on the part of the counselors. She is decapitated by the lone survivor, Alice Hardy (Adrienne King). Alice, while waiting for the police to arrive, takes a canoe out to the lake where she is dragged down by a deformed but very much alive Jason. A final scene in a hospital indicates that Jason's re-animated corpse still lives in the lake. Kevin Bacon co-stars as an ill-fated counselor.

Main article: Friday the 13th Part 2
In the second film, it is retroactively revealed that Jason has actually been living as a hermit in the woods next to the camp for several decades. Having watched his mother's demise from afar, Jason tracks down and kills the heroine of the first film and resumes his mother's work, hacking and slashing through numerous other victims at the nearby camp.
Friday the 13th Part 3 3D (1982)

In the third installment (filmed in 3-D), Jason acquired his trademark hockey mask. In this entry, Jason kills a group of teenagers and a motorcycle gang who are spending time at a farmhouse near a lake. The only survivor, Chris Higgins, (Dana Kimmel) stops Jason by wounding him with an axe blow to the head. As a result, she has a psychotic break.
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
Main article: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter
The fourth installment continues Jason's slaughter before he encounters a young Tommy Jarvis, who is the one to end Jason's life. Part 4, simply titled Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter featured up and coming 1980s stars Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover and did extremely well at the box office.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)
Main article: Friday the 13th: A New Beginning
The fifth film picks up with a mentally troubled adult Tommy Jarvis at a halfway house when a series of familiar murders start up. However, the killer is not Jason, but a copycat avenging the death of his son. Fans were unhappy with the twist, and the producers decided to bring Jason back in the next film.
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
Main article: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives
The sixth entry in the series made this clear in its title: Jason Lives. However, since Jason had been supposedly rotting through the years since Part 4, writer and director Tom McLoughlin brought back the monster in a classic Frankenstein approach. Seemingly ignoring the events of the previous film, Jason Lives opens with Tommy digging up Jason's corpse so he could destroy it. When the body is unearthed, Tommy is filled with rage and pulls off part of a nearby fence and stabs the body multiple times, leaving the pole erect in Jason's chest, only to have the pole struck by lightning, bringing Jason back to life. From here on, Jason is now a zombie (though many fans argue that Jason, after his "death" at Camp Crystal Lake, was never human to begin with). The film's use of humor made it slightly more popular with critics and many fans consider it the best in the series. Alice Cooper performs three songs for the movie.
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
Main article: Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
In this seventh outing in the Friday the 13th series, a telekinetic girl revives Jason again from the bottom of the lake where Tommy had left him imprisoned. The film, which has been dubbed "Jason Vs. Carrie" or "Carrie goes Camping" by fans, featured the first appearance of Kane Hodder as Jason. Hodder would continue to play Jason in all the following entries in the series until Freddy vs. Jason, and would become the most well known of the actors who have played Jason over the years.
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
Main article: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan
Jason Takes Manhattan, the eighth film in the series, picks up sometime after the end of the previous film, where Jason is resurrected again, this time by an underwater power cable which gets snagged by a boat anchor. From there he boards the cruise ship Lazarus where he stays for most of the film, slashing its teenaged passengers who are aboard the vessel for their post-graduation senior class trip. Also aboard the ship is the heroine Renne, who is a hydrophobe planing to face her fears on the cruise. After Jason kills the ship's captain, the teenagers make a failed attempt to search for and kill him. This results in a fire inside the Lazarus, leaving Renne, her boyfriend, her uncle, a teacher, and the school athlete out in the middle of the Atlantic. With luck on their side, they all reach Manhattan. Jason finally catches up with the others, and kills the athlete in a boxing match on the city rooftops by taking a furious swipe at his head, resulting in his decapitation. In a later car crash, Renne finally remembers when she became afraid of the water (her uncle tried to teach her how to swim by shoving her into Crystal Lake, where a deformed young Jason tries to pull her down). Jason chases Renne throughout New York, leading them to the sewers, where Jason is drowned by toxic waste. Despite the title, only the last third of the film actually takes place in Manhattan, and the majority of those sequences were filmed in Vancouver. The few brief scenes in Times Square are the only scenes actually filmed in New York.
New Line Cinema buys the franchise
In 1991, New Line Cinema obtained the rights to the "Jason Voorhees" character hoping to make one final attempt at cashing in on the movie with 1993's Jason Goes to Hell. New Line has since obtained the rights to the title "Friday the 13th" but has chosen not to use it; on its 2004 boxset, Paramount had to credit New Line for use of the name.
Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday (1993)
Main article: Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday kills Jason off, and he instead possesses others to continue his rampage. While the film (which only featured Jason in the opening sequence and climactic final fight to the death) is often derided by fans, the final scene of Freddy Krueger's arm grabbing Jason's discarded hockey mask created a great deal of hype towards the possibility of a crossover between the characters.
The road to Freddy vs. Jason
The road to this crossover was filled with problems. The biggest was the numerous scripts which sought to come up with a logical way to have these two monsters meet. Several of the scripts that were written featured Freddy Krueger retroactively inserted into the origin of Jason, including scenarios where Jason was molested as a child by Freddy, who then "drowned" Jason to keep him from telling the authorities. Other scripts featured Jason as the hero of the film, recasting Jason as a tragic figure instead of the monstrous killing machine that he is usually portrayed as.
Ultimately, two scripts were written for the film. The first one had Jason being raised from the dead by a teenage girl using the heart of her dead boyfriend, to save her sister from a cult of psychotic teenagers who worshipped Freddy Krueger and were seeking to raise him from hell via a ritual sacrifice. The second script featured the main male and female leads from Jason Goes to Hell and the "Alice" character from A Nightmare on Elm Street Parts 4 and 5 teaming up on the eve of the year 2000 to rescue their kids from Freddy and Jason, who seek to kill the children so as to bring Satan (who is revealed to be Jason's father) to Earth.
The second script was deemed unfilmable due to costs and the first script was greenlit (and underwent several additional rewrites), but ultimately was abandoned due to the massacre at Columbine High School, which made the film's main plot point about a murderous teenage cult be considered too controversial in the wake of the school shooting. Meanwhile, Sean Cunningham was tired of waiting while the series was at a stand still, so he ordered a film to be made in the meantime. The idea was developed to set it in the future so as not to hamper the continuity of Freddy vs. Jason. When it was proposed that Jason being alive in the future would reveal who won, Jason X writer Todd Farmer retorted "There are three things in life that are certain: death, taxes, and Freddy and Jason will always come back."
Jason X (2002)
Main article: Jason X
This movie begins in the near future. A team of government scientists at the Crystal Lake Research Facility has captured the notorious Jason Voorhees. Their plan is to freeze him in cryogenic suspension; but, as usual, things go horribly wrong, and Jason breaks free. A survivor of Jason's rampage lures him into the cryogenic chamber, but before she can escape, Jason mortally wounds her, and both are frozen in cryogenic suspension. Over 400 years later, on a contaminated, desolate planet Earth that has been abandoned for centuries, archaeologists discover the two frozen ancestors in the "ancient" underground remains of the Crystal Lake Research Facility. The lone survivor of the attack at the research facility centuries ago is unfrozen and revived. First presumed dead, Jason begins doing what he does best - silently stalking the crew, who fight for their lives as their numbers dwindle. Just when they think they have beaten him, he becomes more powerful than ever.
Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
Main article: Freddy vs. Jason
One year later Freddy vs. Jason was finally released. Sleeping at the remains of what used to be Camp Crystal Lake, Jason "wakes up" in order to kill the children on Elm Street for his mother. In reality, Jason is being manipulated by Freddy Krueger to spread fear so that he can regain his powers, lost due to a full-scale coverup that the parents of Elm Street orchestrated to ensure that Freddy was forgotten, and therefore, unable to kill again. But Jason will not stop killing and Freddy is enraged at the fact that every time he tries to kill someone Jason gets there first and the two finally battle one another, ending the film with Jason walking out of the lake with Freddy's severed head, but Freddy's head winks at the camera. The original ending featured Will and Lori about to have sex, but Will then starts to aggressively attack Lori and he raises his hand to reveal that he is actually Freddy and Lori is actually having a nightmare.
Several ideas for a sequel to Freddy vs. Jason have been proposed. Several of these involve additional characters from other horror franchises. The use of Bruce Campbell's Ash Williams character from the Evil Dead franchise had been considered, but this idea was halted when Evil Dead creator and director Sam Raimi decided against it. According to an interview with Englundfrom March of 2006, New Line Cinema has participated in talks with John Carpenter concerning the use of Michael Myers in a sequel.
On February 14, 2006, according to The Hollywood Reporter, director and producer Michael Bay is scheduled to produce a remake of the original Friday the 13th film, produced by his production company Platinum Dunes. No script has been written nor actors cast. According to Variety, the film will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman .
In 2003 official reports from Sean Cunningham stated a proposal to develop a television program based on the films created by Geoff Garrett and Dan Farrands. Entitled Crystal Lake Chronicles, the plot of the series would be focused on a new character, a continuing villain that's connected to Jason and a sort of puppet master of the town of Crystal Lake. The central characters would be a cast of young adults dealing with coming of age issues while living in the town. Cunningham has likened it to Smallville and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Jason Voorhees will have a presence, but only featured occasionally. There also hopes to feature guest appearances from some of the characters of the films. Cunningham would be a producer and stated a desire to direct a few episodes.

here have been a number of events known as "Black Fridays" in history. Usually, these events are devastating.
Some historians propose that the origin of the "Black Friday" was the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of Knights Templars on October 13, 1307 (Friday), to be later tortured into "admitting" heresy.
Today, the concept of Friday the 13th has been extended through the 'black Friday' concept to incorporate anything really bad that happens on a Friday. In history there have been a number of events that happened on a Friday and are known as Black Friday:
