Betsy Palmer 1926-2015
Sad news tonight for the horror film community. We have lost a modern horror icon. Actress Betsy Palmer, who was immortalized in the horror classic Friday The 13th as Jason’s mother, Mrs. Voorhees, passed away on Friday at age 88, of natural causes. She was the killer in the original film before her loyal son took over for the sequels. A sad farewell to a horror legend.
