Summer may be winding down, but Camp Crystal Lake is hiring another group of young and nubile counselors. They go through these kids so quickly, thanks to Jason Voorhees. At PAX West, Gun Media released a new trailer from Friday the 13th: The Game that features Jason doing what he does best, and it ain’t camping!

Via Polygon, the latest footage from the game depicts just a few of the new kills designed by SFX designer Tom Savini, who worked on the original Friday the 13th movie as a stuntman before going on to a legendary career as a make-up and special effects artist. Fair warning: this video is a bit NSFW, and it gets pretty brutal. Jason has no mercy, especially not for the blonde guy wearing the ascot. This video is set to Crazy Lixx’s song “XIII,” and it perfectly captures the spirit of the hair metal songs from ’80s horror films.

Savini isn’t the only Friday the 13th veteran who returned for this game. As we noted last yearduring the game’s Kickstarter campaign, Friday the 13th: The Game began as a more generic title before the original film’s director, Sean S. Cunningham offered Gun Media the rights to make it an official adaptation. Former Jason, Kane Hodder even reprised his role for the game’s motion capture, while composer Harry Manfredini also came back to the franchise and laid out some new killer tracks.

You won’t have to wait long to take control of Jason or his would-be victims. Friday the 13th: The Game is coming out for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC in October. Or if you’re out in the woods, you can just wait for Jason to find you.
