If your entire social media feed is full of hockey masks, it’s not just you. It’s Friday the 13th, which means it’s time for Jason Voorhees to trend everywhere. The killer wearing a hockey mask has been stalking popular culture since the start of the franchise and a new prequel series is coming soon in the form of Crystal lake. Jason has appeared in a dozen movies, including one pitting him against fellow slasher icon Freddy Krueger, as well as video games, comic books, and more.
The franchise has been on hold for a few years, ever since the writer of the original film managed to reclaim the writing from series producers, and he’s the one who licensed it Crystal lakealthough elements of the franchise that came in later installments (even the hockey mask itself) won’t show up in that series.
Fear of Friday the 13th, known as “paraskevidekatriaphobia,” goes back centuries, possibly originating with Philip IV of France who arrested hundreds of Knights Templar on Friday, October 13, 1307. For some, the arrival of Friday the 13th brought with it a fear that something would happen to them. bad can happen. Interestingly, Friday the 17th is considered bad luck in Italy, while Greece and certain Spanish-speaking countries consider Tuesday the 13th bad luck.
