CROSBY, MN — There are pranks that make you laugh out loud, and then there are those that give you a full-out heart attack.
This is definitely the latter.
Artist Curtis Lahr is giving divers the fright of their lives with a nightmarish art installation that can only be seen 120 feet below water. Located at the bottom of a popular dive site in Crosby, Minnesota, his horrific art piece is actually a statue of ‘Jason Vorhees’, the goalie mask-wearing serial killer from the ‘Friday the 13th’ film franchise.
The terrifying statue, which has been chained to the lake bed, was actually installed back in 2013. But thanks to YouTube and Reddit, where videos of the Jason doppelganger have been making the rounds in recent weeks, interest for Lahr’s piece has resurfaced.
In a video taken last year, the statue shows some wear and tear due to its watery grave. But this (coupled with super-creepy music) only makes it that much more terrifying!
We doubt Minnesota, known as “The Land of 10,000 Lakes”, could have ever predicted this new and terrifying attraction. But we have to admit, even for the faint of heart, a masked, demented killer at the bottom of a lake is definitely a tourist draw.
