The original script for Friday the 13th called for Jason’s name to be Josh. If things had worked out the way director Sean Cunningham originally expected, the name Josh Voorhees would have quickly been forgotten. You see, Cunningham did not plan on sequels to Friday the 13th, so who really cared what the name of the kid who drowned was? Besides, Josh Voorhees wasn’t the killer, so it didn’t matter that his name failed to conjure images of a serial murderer. Thankfully, someone decided the name sounded better as Jason Voorhees. Can you imagine movies named Freddy vs. Josh, Josh X, or Josh Takes Manhattan? Neither can we.
