Whenever the infamous date of Friday the 13th rolls around, Warren County marks a chilling chapter in its history. For it was on that date the infamous murders happened at Camp Crystal Lake, when a group of teenagers were slain, one by one, while attempting to re-open the abandoned campground.
Actually, the camp is fictional and those murders never happened. But "Friday the 13th" - the 1980 American slasher film directed by Sean S. Cunningham and written by Victor Miller - was filmed in and around the peaceful, rural towns of northern Warren County, and many of the exterior settings can still be seen, looking remarkably unchanged from when they were depicted in the film. Visitors are invited to check out some of those locations, see the movie, and participate in other special events on this October's Friday the 13th.
