Biography Edit

Barry was a camp counselor at Camp Crystal Lake in 1957-58. In the summer of 1957, his girlfriend Claudette and he went out into the woods to make love where they were discovered by young Jason Voorhees. Something about seeing this angered Jason and he leaped upon Barry's back and began punching him. Barry chased Jason out towards the lake where the boy inadvertently fell into the water and drowned. No body was ever found and nobody blamed the counselors for the boy's tragic death - no one except for his mother, Pamela Voorhees. [1]

Barry and Claudette returned to the camp the following year. During a campfire sing-along, Claudette and he sneaked off to one of the cabins to make love. Claudette teased Barry, wondering if he preferred her affections over that of a girl named Mary-Anne. Pamela Voorhees found them in the cabin and surprised them. Barry and Claudette tried to back away, but Pamela stabbed them both to death with a knife. [2]

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • The opening sequence from Friday the 13th featuring the deaths of Barry and Claudette was originally intended to be a longer scene, which involved Pamela Voorhees chasing them around a barn at the camp. Shooting of these scenes was to commence in September of 1979, but due to heavy snowfall, they had to be scaled down. According to special effects artist Tom Savini, these are the only omitted scenes from the final draft of the shooting script. [3]
  • Barry was the first murder victim featured in a Friday the 13th film.
  • Playing the part of Barry is the only known film role for actor Willie Adams.
