This is the moment a dad granted his son's birthday wish - to be picked up from school by Jason from Friday the 13th.


Sam Murphy wanted to surprise his son Carter, who has ADHD, with a special treat for his big day.

He asked Carter what he wanted and was told his one wish was to meet the legendary villain and serial slasher Jason Voorhees.

Despite warning his son that it would be difficult to pull off, Carter found 'Jason' waiting for him outside the school gates and the pair walked home hand in hand.

Sam, 45, of Plymouth, Devon, England said:

"I spoke to the school about it and they said they didn't want Jason waiting at the school gates so he had to be round the corner."
"It was quite a nice experience, he was walking down the street holding hands with Jason. He has issues with touching, he won't hold my hand."

The horror movie icon was played by local make-up and special effects expert Tony Gartland who took on the job to make himself look just like the 'real' Jason Voorhees.

The scene played out on Carter's birthday on January 30 and was filmed by Sam.

Sam added:

"Carter hasn't shut up about it, Jason gave him a t-shirt and he hasn't taken it off since. I can't get it in the wash."
"Jason came into the house with his shoes on and Carter said, 'dad, Jason left his shoes on' and I replied, 'well, I'm not telling him to take them off.'"

"They went to his bedroom and Carter was showing all his favorite toys, he showed him everything. Carter then brought Jason downstairs and then he had to go, and I said we'd drop him off in the city center so he could go on a killing spree."
"Carter was so excited, he hasn't stopped speaking about it since. Tony didn't break character once, he was great."

Tony, who lives in Saltash, Cornwall, owns a special effects and t-shirt printing business and has plenty of experience with costume make-up, masks, and costumes.

He said he's always been a horror fan and has even attended horror conventions as Jason Voorhees.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.
