Jason Vorhees from the 'Friday the 13th' movies apparently takes the SkyTrain in Vancouver just like you and me

Did you know that the film Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan was mostly filmed in Vancouver? It’s true.

When they filmed it in 1989 they had a limited budget of around $5 million, so the producers decided to film most of it here in order to stretch that out.

They did film a little bit of it in New York - Times Square specifically - and a little bit of it in Los Angeles. However as a critic from the Boston Globe pointed out, they maybe should have called it “Jason Takes a Cruise” because a large portion of it actually takes place on a boat.

And the SkyTrain. Jason Vorhees took the SkyTrain, where he proceeded to wreak havoc.

Enjoy this clip of Jason making friends on his commute, and have a happy Halloween.
