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.

The original Friday The 13th was released 35 years ago today on May 9th, 1980. I saw it on Friday June 13th, 1980…the day it takes place…at the long gone Rialto Theater in Ridgefield Park,N.J. It is now considered a horror classic and has spawned 10 sequels and 1 reboot and given us a horror icon in Jason…though his mom was the killer in this first installment. Happy Anniversary to a classic!
