Friday the 13th
You know his name. You know the story. On Friday the 13th, witness his resurrection...
A group of young adults discover a boarded up Camp Crystal Lake, where they soon encounter Jason Voorhees (Mears) and his deadly intentions.
I will likely never completely understand the hate directed at this solid reboot by many fans. It is a FRIDAY THE 13TH movie through and though.
Attractive young people who aren't too much of a pain to be around, all played by actors who are at least passable (and in the case of SUPERNATURAL's Jared Padalecki, good), a secluded, Camp Crystal Lake-adjacent location, gruesomely creative (and often darkly amusing) murders, and a battle at the end. It's even got the douchbaggy guy you can't wait to see get it bad (Travis Van Winkle), and he sure does. Speaking of douchebaggy guy, he also has the best dialogue. When he drops his gun and is scrambling to find it, he actually…
Are you too busy/lazy to watch the first three Friday films? Need a film that combines all of that into the first 30 minutes and from there is a pretty generic sequel? That's why this exists...
The sad part is that Jason Goes To Hell is still much, MUCH worse.
Everyone who knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for horror films. I'm a huge fan of the Friday the 13th franchise, so i'm not gonna lie, I was scared to watch this. I didn't want it to affect the way I see the Friday films, so whenever I watch one all I will think of is this. I am glad to say, this dosen't disappoint. It stayed true to the original and didn't sway too far, but also felt like a fresh take on Jason. Filled to the brim with gore. Check it out if youre a Friday fan, you're bound to love it.
Can I rate it lower?
Soulless and utterly forgettable "reboot" of yet another horror franchise that, at 105 minutes, out stays its welcome massively.
A few decent kills and a truly wonderous pair of bosoms on one of the many naked ladies get it a star....plus the police guy reminds me of 'The Fast Show'
"Hi! I'm Ed Winchester!"
To be fair, it does take a special kind of talent to cock up a Friday the 13th film but Marcus Nispel managed it. A shame considering he got it so right with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Derek Mears makes a threatening Jason but that was all that was good about this cack. And any film that has the line "Your tits are so...stupendous" deserves to forgotten about. Maybe not the worst remake per se but the worst in terms of letdown, considering what it could - and should - have been. Utter drivel.
okay, i can't complain about my childhood hero being rebooted now can i?
As the new Friday the 13th starts, it feels like a throwback to the slasher flicks of the 80's. The characters are stereotypes, the story is paper thin, the gore is plentiful, and the sex and nudity is gratuitous. It's all somewhat fun. But then as the film wears on, you begin to realize just why the heyday of this kind of film faded away - the truth is they aren't very good. It starts to feel monotonous, not only as just another slasher flick, but even within this film alone. More kills, more jump scares... its all just more of the same, over and over.
Whereas the remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Dawn of the Dead were both…
Despite what some misguided revisionists might have you believe, the Friday the 13th movies have always been mostly crap, even though there is material there to make a movie that’s actually scary. This sequel does nothing to change the trend. There is no suspense. In fact, the director seems to have no idea how to make a scary movie. He just assembles the shots indifferently and artlessly. It doesn't help that the dialogue is exposition-laden. Also, Jason is too smart in this installment; he’s supposed to be a crude killing machine. That being said, the story has some good ideas, and the film makes you care slightly about a few of the characters.
I giggled and clapped like a kid at Christmas throughout this thoroughly entertaining and TOTALLY NOT A REMAKE latest installment (Part 11!) of the series. Brutal kills, horny teens and a couple winks at fans of the first few films - a good time was had by all.
Awful remake of a weak film and/or franchise.
Bloody but forgettable. This slasher reboot has less timey charm than an episode of 'Goosebumps.'
Well, I made a long journey from Shitty to Shit,
I never stopped hoping, now I'm in the pits,
When the teenagers camped, I knew this was a waste,
I said, "Please stop fucking or I'm gonna punch my own face!"
I'm having conniptions all over the place,
Well folks, it's over. This is the end. It's been a long arduous voyage, but it's finally over. I've braved all manner of cinematic travesties, from horrible acting to sex-crazed coroners. Full of darkness and danger, it was. And sometimes I didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when…
This is one of the few reboots that actually work to actually reboot the series that stalled out. It works because it didn't try to be the original it took the best aspects that the fans loved and then made a newish origin story around it.
Knowing that the fans wanted Jason they quickly set up his and his mothers death and then brought him back just as the original story had told. Then quicky as time passes through his life his body count rises and the story fast forwards with hits to the original first three parts.
After set up is complete then enter the main kids set up for slaughter and it delivers the body and boob count…
