The Movie: 'Friday the 13th' (1980)

The Scene: Just when they thought it was safe to reopen Camp Blood Camp Crystal Lake, one very angry mother puts the brakes on that idea ... with a vengeance. One by one, this fresh batch of camp counselors meet bloody ends that really put a damper on an otherwise potentially fun summer. Alice, arguably the most chaste of the teens, tangles with Mrs. Voorhees --who is really not letting this whole "horny, negligent counselors caused my son's death" thing go -- and manages to divorce her head from her shoulders. Tired, broken, and on the brink of a complete mental breakdown, Alice seeks solace by floating on the lake all night in a canoe. Just as morning breaks, and sanity seems to be returning to her life, a deformed boy leaps out of the lake and pulls her under the water.
