We already knew that the next installment of the venerable, often ridiculous Friday the 13th horror franchise would be an origin story that starred the mother of machete enthusiast Jason Voorhees. But now we have confirmation that Jason’s mysterious dad will also finally be revealed in the film.

Speaking to Yahoo Movies, co-producer Andrew Form confirmed, “We’re going to meet the family. You’re gonna meet Pamela, Elias, and Jason. And you’re gonna see how it all happened.”

As is often the case with origin stories, sometimes not knowing is more gripping than knowing. I have a sinking suspicion that little Jason is going to take part in an elaborate go-kart race and then start asking strange women if they’re angels.
