2 Who arrived at the shore of Crystal Lake as Alice was pulled under by Jason in "Friday the 13th"?
Answer: The police

Alice had been playing strip Monopoly with Bill Brown (Harry Crosby) when she noticed it was raining and decided to go back to her cabin. After the rainstorm died down, Alice and Bill noticed that no one else was around. They didn't know that people at Camp Crystal Lake had been getting murdered all day long. Later, after finding Bill's body, Alice ran to Mrs. Voorhees, who told Alice that her son Jason had drowned at Crystal Lake because the camp counselors weren't paying any attention, and the current camp should've never been reopened. She tried to kill Alice, but Alice chopped off her head. The next morning Alice awoke floating in a canoe on Crystal Lake. She saw the police waving at her as Jason, looking like a corpse, jumped out of the water and pulled Alice into the lake.

3 In the beginning of the film, we heard singing from the camp counselors. The scene progressed to a cabin with a name on the door. What animal was the cabin named after?
Answer: Fox

On the front of the door of the cabin was a plaque identifying it as fox. The plaque had two brown arrows outlined in yellow. The two arrows crossed each other to form the letter X. The background of the board was a faded red. Underneath the arrows was the word "fox" written in yellow. We saw the door of the cabin open, but we did not see who opened it. The person entered the room and looked around at the sleeping children. The intruder continued to look around the room and saw board games and a couple of badminton racquets.

4 What happened at Camp Crystal Lake in 1958, that resulted in its closure?
Answer: Became site of several murders

Back in 1958, when the story begins, two camp counselors, Claudette and Barry, waited until the children spending their summer at Camp Crystal Lake were occupied to make their way into a loft to spend time together. Claudette was worried that someone would find them and, sure enough, someone did. While the two of them started making out, a figure ascended the stairs, surprising the two of them. The figure killed Barry, stabbing him in the stomach before advancing on Claudette.

5 As a young boy at Camp Crystal Lake in 1957, Jason was involved in a traumatic incident that resulted in everyone believing him to be dead for the following two and a half decades. What was the alleged cause of death?
Answer: He drowned in the lake.

In the original "Friday the 13th", we learn that Jason drowned because the lifeguards were making love in the bushes instead of watching him. The supposed drowning was the "original sin" that brought evil to the area, and the two lifeguards' murder the following year was the first in a string violent incidents that would culminate in Jason's murderous rampage years later.

6 What famous actress does Marcie quote?
Answer: Katharine Hepburn

It has just started to rain so Jack and Marcie run into a nearby cabin. Jack lights a candle to get some light in the room. Jack and Marcie make love in bunk beds. They don't realize Ned's dead body is in the top bunk. Marcie tells Jack she needs to use the bathroom. Marcie runs to the bathroom in the pouring down rain. Through an exterior window, we see Marcie go into one of the stalls. As Marcie is in the stall the killer enters the bathroom. The killer sees Marcie's feet and flashlight underneath the stall. While Marcie is in the stall she hears a noise. She thinks it is Jack and calls his name several times. Marcie goes to the sink to wash her hands. She looks into the mirror and does an impression of Katharine Hepburn. Marcie says, "When I looked into that mirror, I knew I'd always be ugly. I said, Lizzie you'll always be plain." Marcie hears a sound coming from the shower. She thinks it may be Ned and calls his name. Marcie goes into the showers to investigate the noise. She opens the shower curtain and there is no one there. As she is in one stall, we see the shadow of an axe being raised. Marcie turns around and sees the axe. The killer lowers the axe into Marcie's head. Marcie falls to the floor dead.

Katharine Hepburn is a true legend of the silver screen. She was nominated for a total of twelve Oscars in her film career. She won four of the awards. Her last Oscar win was in 1982 for "On Golden Pond".

16 What was the name of Terry's dog in "Friday the 13th Part 2"?
Answer: Muffin

The people at the training camp for camp counselors noticed the remains of a dead dog, and thought it could have been Terry's dog, Muffin, but they decided not to tell Terry. That night Terry stayed behind at the camp in case Muffin showed up. Meanwhile, Ginny (Amy Steel) told her friends that maybe Jason didn't drown all those years ago. Maybe he lived by himself in the woods, but he happened to see his mother get decapitated in the previous movie. He could be an "out-of-control psychopath". Meanwhile, the man in the wheelchair got a machete to the head. Later, Ginny was chased by Jason, and ran into Jason's cabin, where she saw the head of Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer). Ginny's boyfriend showed up and they fought Jason and ran away. Later, they were in a cabin when they heard a sound at the door. The door was opened. Muffin was there, still alive, wagging its tail. Then Jason crashed through the window and grabbed Ginny!

18 What name do the locals use for Camp Crystal Lake?
Answer: Camp Blood

Annie heads to Crystal Lake, walking a part of the way and hitchhiking the rest. Stopping in at a local general store she asks for directions and gets nervous reactions from the patrons; they seem unaware that someone is planning to reopen the park -- Annie's there to become a counselor. One of the diners, a truck driver, offers her a ride towards the camp. En route to his truck, however, Annie is approached by a crazy, old man who warns her that she'll never come back again. "It's got a death curse!" It doesn't stop her, however -- she's too bubbly and excited.
On the ride, the driver tells her what happened at Camp Crystal Lake so many years ago -- the place is jinxed and two kids were murdered in 1958; one kid drowned in 1957; in 1962 they found out the water was bad. She should quit. Ask anybody.
He drops her off in front of a cemetery and she walks on.

19 How many people does Jason kill in the first "Friday the 13th" movie?
Answer: 0

In the first movie, Jason's mother Pamela does the killing, all in the name of avenging the death of her son. The story has it that Jason witnessed her death at the climax of the first movie, and took over the killing spree himself in the sequel.

The fact that Jason had survived in the woods all those years after the supposed drowning without anyone knowing is all the more amazing considering that his own mother was in and out of those same woods on several occasions reaping murderous havoc. Accepting this improbability, however, is paramount to being able to appreciate the films in this series.

By the time they returned to the farm, all her friends had been killed by Jason, who had killed a silly man wearing a hockey mask, so Jason decided to wear the mask from then on. After making her boyfriend's eyes pop out, Jason chased Chris, who ran away from Jason to the barn. When Jason came after her, she swung an ax into his head.

30 While Barry and Claudette made out in the loft of the barn someone followed them into the barn. What product did Claudette throw at her attacker?
Answer: Claudette threw a box of Brillo pads at her attacker.

The attacker came up the stairs of the barn to the loft. The attacker saw Barry and Claudette making out. Claudette gave Barry a nasty look because the two of them got caught. Barry jumped up and fastened his belt; he tried to explain that they were only making out. The attacker stabbed Barry in the stomach and he fell onto some rolls of gardening fences. Claudette frantically tried to escape her attacker. She moved from place to place in a vain attempt to escape. She picked up several boxes including the box of Brillo pads and threw it at her attacker. We did not see how Claudette died, but instead saw a close up frozen frame of her screaming.

31 Where does Jason commit his first ever act of murder?
Answer: In a kitchen

In the opening scene of "Friday the 13th Part 2", Jason kills Alice, the lone survivor of "Friday the 13th", with an ice pick in the kitchen of her home, two months after Alice killed Pamela at the conclusion of the first movie. In doing so, Jason simultaneously avenges his mother's death and begins what will be an extremely prolific run as a mass murderer.

The killing is one of Jason's most impressive, considering that, without having had an education or socialized upbringing, he is able to find out where Alice lived, travel to her home, break in, murder her, and return to Crystal Lake in time for the next batch of teenagers, all without being detected.
