NAPOLEON, MI – There has been countless reincarnations, but only one man can hold claim as the original Jason Vorhees.

Ari Lehman, who played Jason as a child in the first "Friday the 13th" film in 1980, is coming to a Jackson-area haunted attraction to shoot a music video, of all things.

A young Jason Voorhees (Ari Lehman) attacks camp counselor Alice (Adrian King) in a scene from "Friday the 13th."Paramount Pictures 

Lehman, 48, a Chicago resident, is part of the band First Jason, which will shoot footage for a video for the song "Victim" at the Corpse Barn Shock Haunt, 6220 Brooklyn Road, on April 25-27.

Clint Tacy, who co-owns the Corpse Barn with Brad Suydam, met Lehman at an event in Detroit a couple of years ago. The two began chatting through Facebook after Tacy noticed Lehman's band was looking for a location to shoot a video.

"Obviously, I'm a horror geek – as a fan, I'm very excited," Tacy said. "I'm also very excited to have this at the Haunt.

"It will be a fun event with like-minded people."

Lehman, a singer and keyboardist for First Jason, is a classically trained pianist, although the band's style is described as "horror metal." Lehman wields an over-the-shoulder keyboard with a custom-made handle shaped like that of a machete.

The premise of the "Victim" video will be Jason battling a mob of zombies. The cast will include Ladislav Beran, who played Karl Ruprecht Kroenen in "Hellboy."

The band is helping to finance the music video through pay-to-participate opportunities for extras. The majority of the shooting is scheduled to take place at the Corpse Barn Shock Haunt on Saturday, April 26.
