131 — Friday the 13th: Mother’s Day

Cover of Eric Morse's pamphlet entitled Friday the Thirteenth: Mother's Day, featuring a ghastly hand bursting from the earth to grab the ankle of a young woman wearing sneakers.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, or maybe early for Halloween, it’s just flat-out time to get extremely spooky, so we’re bringing you the PG-est horror out there, slithering like a fat white worm and jutting upsettingly from a long-dug grave, Eric Morse’s epoch-defining Friday the 13th: Mother’s Day.

Grab your backpack and get ready for a road trip with all your most stereotypical high school pals: the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the princess, and the criminal, but keep your eyes open and your running (-away) shoes laced up, because THIS Mother’s Day, Camp Crystal Lake is being plagued by more than just the Voorhees family. Canoe even believe it!? there’s more than one killer on the loose!
