[7] Voice-Over Controversy on the film: Friday the 13th
Garrett voiced the role of Pamela Voorhees in the Friday the 13th film, which caused a controversy. Betsy Palmer thought it was her from the 1980s film and threatened to sue Paramount.[8] "So spot-on was Garrett's voice-over work that the trailer caused much controversy, as Betsy Palmer was convinced that they actually used her voice from the original film without asking her permission." Paramount stated that it would be impossible to pull clean audio from the original film, since the dialogue was tied to music and sound effects, which is why they brought in Garrett to recite the iconic lines."
