Well this is terrifying.

Beneath the surface of a Minnesota lake awaits one of the most notorious characters in horror history.

Yes, Jason Voorhees, the demented killer from the "Friday the 13th" series, was anchored to the bed of the 120-foot deep diving site near Crosby, Minnesota after being built by artist and diver Curtis Lahr.

It was installed in the lake in 2013 and featured in a diving clip shared on YouTube by Lahr in 2014, which got more than 440,000 views.

Lahr posted another video this past October, showing that his statue is still in place and looking as terrifying as ever years later.

Although the video has been up for six months, it has just come to the attention of some national websites, with Bloody Disgusting sharing the video on its site on Wednesday and many others then following suit – including Nerdist.

Lahr has dubbed the diving lake "Camp Crystal Lake," which was the grisly setting of the first "Friday the 13th" movie.

You can also find Voorhees hiding in the Cuyuna State Recreational Area's mine pits.

Here's the original video posted by Lahr.
