Unfortunately, it seems that Friday The 13th Part VII: A New Blood didn’t actually happen, because the hockey masked monstrosity is actually still chained and sunken like a homicidal cinderblock at the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake right where Tommy Jarvis left him.

Sorry Megan, I guess that heroic gesture was absolutely all for nothing.

Artist Curtis Lahr constructed and installed a perfectly appropriate statue of Jason Voorhees in 2013 at the bottom of a Crosby, Minnesota lake. He uploaded the first video of Jason sitting at the bottom of the lake’s murky depths in 2014.

In all seriousness, this is probably one the best homages to a horror film in the genre’s history, both in terms of craftsmanship and the dedication to the piece’s origin.

The statue’s presence became increasingly more viral with a 2017 update video, and is garnering a growing amount of attention to this day!

One wonders if there will soon be diving tours offered for the lake simply for horror fans to get up close and (not too) personal with the algae-covered Voorhees?
