The most interesting aspect of Adam Marcus’ Jason Goes to Hell was new franchise character Creighton Duke, a badass bounty hunter who has made it his personal mission in life to track down and kill Jason Voorhees. But did you ever wonder why?
The film notes that Duke has a history with Voorhees, but it never goes into detail about all that. But Marcus himself filled in some of those blanks in a recent Facebook Q&A in the group Club Voorhees, digging into Duke’s formative encounter with Jason.
“Here’s what happened. A teenage Creighton was out on Crystal Lake with his girlfriend,” Marcus explained. “Jason capsized their small boat and pulled the girl down into the lake. Creighton tried to save her but could not. She was never seen again.”
He continued, “Creighton vowed revenge and from that moment on he spent his life in the study and pursuit of Jason. He became a bounty hunter just to fund his work in taking down his nemesis. That’s the story.”
We tip our hats to 1428 Elm for the heads up on this fun tidbit.
