The perpetrator was a grieving mother, driven insane by the drowning of her child, Jason, whom she believed was neglected by the camp counselors. As legend has it, the last survivor of the attacks beheaded the woman. But then Jason came back, and now he is a vengeful and inexorable killer, wielding crossbows, swords, axes and other sharp instruments. The legend proves horribly true, as these campers quickly discover. Six months later, the brother of one of those campers distributes posters of his missing sister. The police believe she took off with her boyfriend; but he knows better. The brother crosses paths with an uptight young rich guy who is having his girlfriend and friends over at his parents’ cabin. The brother ends up at the cabin himself just before his sister’s attacker sets upon them all.
Plot: A group of young adults visit a boarded up campsite named Crystal Lake where they soon encounter the mysterious Jason Voorhees and his deadly intentions.

**The following is a long-form review that I originally wrote in 2009.**
_Friday the 13th_, originally released in 1980 began one of the most successful film franchises of all time. Now, 31 years later, the newest incarnation of _Friday the 13th_ has just been released on Special Edition DVD. It seems unlikely that the director of the first film Sean S. Cunningham (who is also the producer of the 2009 version) could ever have seen just where the monster he had helped to create would go. So now, with the series being given one of those oh-so-popular of late “reboots”, it’s important to take a look at what Jason Voorhees has been up to, what has changed, and just as importantly, what hasn’t.
The film loosely follows the progression of the first four _Friday the 13th_ films, the opening credit sequence has mother dearest Pamela Voorhees on June 13, 1980 confronting one of the Camp Crystal Lake counsellors , she is promptly decapitated with a machete, as per the original story. This is a powerful intro to the rest of the movie, as a reboot, you have to show Mrs. Voorhees at some point in time, but it can’t take up too many of those valuable 90 minutes. At this point the film begins to deviate from the original, we get some of Harry Manfredini’s musical score (Ki-ki-ki-ma-ma-ma) but this time round Jason is very much alive, sees his mother beheaded and picks up his iconic machete and some very bad habits from here on in. After the credits there is a new bunch of kids, looking to score some pot, have a little pre-marital sex, get wasted, go places they’re not allowed, and just generally set themselves up to die. But something is missing… that would be… Oh yes, the cast! Only a single member of the “media-hyped” actors portrays a character in this group, so we already know that these guys are going nowhere. Only after their demise are we given the “_FRIDAY THE 13TH_” movie title, and the film begins. Unfortunately, by the time this happens, we have already been through a good set of characters, and it feels like watching a sequel after you’re 23 minutes in.
The new group of rowdy teenagers have much the same plans in store as the last, but they are much less believable characters when compared to the ones we had just minutes ago. They are somewhat saved by the performances of Travis Van Winkle (from _Accepted_) as Trent, the “rich asshole” of the movie, and Aaron Yoo as Chewie, the lovable little stoner. Jared Padalecki’s character Clay (a reboot of Rob from _Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter_) is wholly out of place, maybe it’s his _Supernatural_ fame or maybe it’s his deliberate intention to not have a good time. Either way the protagonist of the entire film really doesn’t seem like he belongs in the movie at all. Sort of a down point when you think about it.
While the film didn’t seem to have plot holes per se, it very much seems as though they tried to fit the creation of the film in before it was due to be released on Friday, February 13th. Now don’t get me wrong, I love novelty and a good theatrical gimmick as much as anyone can, but know what I care about even more? The end product (especially when it comes to _Friday the 13th_)! The time could have been much better spent on filling in all the little bits where the movie just seemed to be missing something. You’re not quite sure what it is, but that’s their job to figure out.
The hype over the film’s sexual content seems to have been grossly over-exaggerated. Supposedly Michael Bay walked out of the first screening due to the sex scenes. After having watched the film, I find this very difficult to believe. Although the sex does seem to have been thrown in for the Hell of it (isn’t it always), there really isn’t all that much. But, after all of the problems the film goes through, they get the most important thing right, Jason. With culturally recognised hockey mask and machete in tow, Mr. Voorhees does his thing, and he does it well. Whilst this particular incarnation of Jason is wholly more believable than any of the others, Derek Mears makes it work, he’s not a supernatural boogieman-esque killing machine, he’s a hunter, he’s a natural, he’s almost the anti-hero. Upon first hearing that Kane Hodder was yet again not to be playing the role of Jason Voorhees, I think a little part of me died inside. But I submit, Derek Mears has given the best representation of Jason I think we’ve ever seen.
The 2009 reboot of _Friday the 13th_ is the type of movie that you can watch, and when it’s finished, want to go right back to the beginning and watch it all over again, you’re just not sure why…
‘Friday the 13th’ turned out to be one of the biggest disappointments when it comes to horror classics remakes. After watching the trailers, I got the wrong idea that this film was going to be more serious. The previews gave me the false impression that this remake was going to go deeper into Jason’s background story or maybe even offer extremely gory murders, when in reality, it is exactly the opposite. I’m not one of those horror lovers who want to know everything related to the villains, their origins and such, but in this case, it would have been acceptable to throw in some flashbacks regarding Jason Voorhees’ past. Unfortunately, this remake wastes all the opportunities to make this interesting and instead, it offers an exaggerated and ineffective amount of comedy situations that are badly placed and ruin the possibility of creating a genuine horror feeling. Comedy situations in slasher films are no surprise, but in this remake, the attempted comedy is badly placed and seems like it was forced by the producers to make the film more marketable. I will give an example: after a really tense and dramatic persecution, the film cuts to a scene involving a horny stereotyped hillbilly lusting over a mannequin, while Jason silently walking up to him from behind, with the obvious intention of slashing him. How can they mix cheap humor and tension in one scene? The results obviously cannot be good. It was a murder scene, but instead of causing uneasiness, tension or shock, everyone at the movie theater was laughing at the guy talking about how he lost his virginity to a mannequin. The worst part is that the so-called humor is extremely 15-years-ago and even back then, it wouldn’t have been funny.
The gore is very unsatisfying also. Nowadays, slasher films usually offer creative and really brutal murders and even if the plot is not so good, you can always at least settle for that. When I found out that Marcus Nispel was directing this, I thought it was good news, because he directed “The Texas Chain Saw Massacre” remake, which is a fine example of a movie that may not be as good as the original, but at least it offers something more serious, gory and overall fulfilling. Naturally, since Marcus Nispel also directed ‘Friday the 13th’ remake, I expected something in the same vein as ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ remake. Sadly, that was a very inaccurate assumption. In this film, the gore is completely unsatisfactory and in some cases, the murders are even funny. The entire movie theater burst into a maniacal laughter during some of the murders and I must say that in those cases, I had to agree with them.
Another thing that bothered me about this film, is the fact that they could have showed a little bit more about the character of Mrs. Voorhees. Unfortunately, she only appears during the first seconds of the film and they cut her scenes with the opening credits, which is a disgrace. The confrontation between Mrs. Voorhees and the counselor girl is perhaps one of the finest points of the entire ‘Friday the 13th’ series, and it should have been remade in an equally tense way. Cutting the scene with the opening credits is, in my opinion, a self-sabotage. I think it’s safe to say that many fans of the original film were eager to learn some more about Jason’s beloved mother and see her more time on the screen. But no… apparently, they didn’t even take advantage of that opportunity to make this movie more interesting. True, we see a little bit about Jason’s environment, since the characters get to take a tour inside his house and it was a good idea to show his bedroom and evidence the fact that once upon a time, the killing machine was an innocent boy with a normal life. However, that doesn’t make up for the lack of space that Mrs. Voorhees had on the story.
‘Friday the 13th’ turned out to be a teen comedy with lousy humor and some badly placed murders from the beginning until the end. Watch it if you’re curious, but unless you’re a silly teenager who thinks everything is funny, don’t expect anything even remotely good, because you’ll be devastated.
This hockey-mask wearing stalker Jason will not disappoint you
(Synopsis) Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki) travels to Crystal Lake, the last known location that his missing sister Whitney (Amanda Righetti) was seen. The police have searched with no luck, and Clay is searching alone. Local citizens have advised Clay not to go into those woods, because anyone who shows up missing is already dead, and he is wasting his time. Their warnings go unheard, because he must find and rescue his sister. During the search, Clay meets a group of thrill-seeking college students who have just arrived at Crystal Lake for a weekend of sex, booze and pot smoking. One of the students, Jenna (Danielle Panabaker) decides to help Clay find his sister, and they go into the woods. They find the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and search the dilapidated camp house for any signs of his sister. They soon see why people don’t come to these woods, because they encounter the evil and psychopathic killer, Jason Voorhees (Derek Mears).
(My Comment) This is your typical teen slasher horror movie. By now, everybody should know that you don’t enter the haunted domain of Jason, or you deserve what you get. We now have a bigger and stronger Jason who hunts his prey and not only uses his razor-sharp machete, but other instruments to carry out his nightmarish revenge. There are some terrifying scares scenes that made me jump, luckily there was no one sitting next to me. If you like slasher movies, the hockey-mask wearing stalker Jason will not disappoint, and you will have a bloody good time as Jason increases his body count. I was glad when it was over, because I couldn’t take much more of this traumatic experience. (Warner Bros., Run Time 1:37, Rated R)(6/10)
Dark, violent, unsettling Friday the 13th addition. Should please die hard fans and newcomers.
Us the fans see where Michael Bay is going… He makes this remake and throws MANY enigmatic situations that will be explained in a “Beginning” movie. Read my words. But meanwhile we have plenty of Jason Voorhees material to dig on and enjoy.
After watching it on it’s premiere, I was very angry and heated (not because of the steamy sex scene involving Bree), No, I had a hot head mainly because of the now infamous and ridiculous “one-liner” at the ending (think about “The Ring 2”, ugh.)
After a second, more objective view I can say that this remake stands alone and worths the watch for ANY die hard Friday the 13th fans and Horror fans in general who are into the new way of Horror film making.
The fact that Bay and Nispel team-up makes you think that they would use the same formula that made a huge success (grizzly cinematography, torture, and a violent maniac). They did use them with the typical “Friday the 13th” elements such as teens having plenty of sex, smoke lots of weed, and getting drunk. Take my word fellow Friday the 13th die hard fans, you can feel safe because we will get the F13Th elements we love combined with a dark, eerie atmosphere, and a more clever, and violent Jason. If you dig the “Saw” and “TCM” 2000’s efforts you know what you can expect.
I REALLY dug the character addition for the series. Although in part IV there’s a character that is hunting Jason in revenge for his sister’s death, he’s not important for the movie. In the remake, Clay is the perfect lead male character who is not hunting for Jason, instead he’s given a good guy attitude while looking for his missing sister who was probably killed by Jason. This is a new kind of hero in the series; most likely to be the new Tommy Jarvis. And Whitney is truly a fresh character for the franchise. Jason kidnaps and locks her in a dungeon type setting because she resembles his dead mother. Nice! It’s like the 30’s “muse inspiring” for the monster.
From part 1 we have homages to Pamela Voorhees doing the killings and getting decapitated by the final counselor girl. Also, we have the Camp Crystal Lake setting, the glorious “Ki ki ki ma ma ma”, the arrow through the head (it was through the neck in the original), an ax murder (it was an ax to the head in the original), and machete action in teenager’s heads, and OF COURSE the infamous “was it a nightmare?” ending.
From part 2 we have Jason wearing the sack, his dirty shack, the psychology “fight” between Jason and Whitney (Ginny in part 2), the campfire legend being told, Jason crashing into the window to grab Clay (it happened in the bogus ending from part 2), and Jason getting hurt in the leg.
From part 3 we have Jason getting the hockey mask (thank you! glorious moment), Jason getting violently hanged from a rope and breaking his neck, and the glorious moment when he stretches his arms seeking for help (almost made me cry!) as when he was hit with an ax in the head by Chris at the ending. Of course Lawrence, the black guy is an homage to Ali because he gives Jason a hard time and even hurts him. He’s the tough one that confronts Jason without getting scared and decides to go help “his boy” as Ali did in part III when he finds Loco’s dead body. Also, Jason’s disfigured face is similar to his monster-excited grin face from part III.
From part 4 we have the duo of jerk funny guys (Jimbo and Ted) now being Lawrence and Chewie, Jason crashing a window in order to grab Clay (it happened when he grabs Tommy near the ending of part 4), Jason’s surprised reaction when he gets his sack off (like when he has his hockey mask removed by a machete hit), Jason inclining his head when he hears his name, Jason’s black finger nails, his violent reactions, and his fierce running.
From part V. Reggie the Reckless’ girl scream! Just wait for Trent’s bitch scream.
From part VI; when Jason puts on his mask.
From part VII. Jason’s heavy breathing and his love for an ax.
From part VIII. Black guy who gives a hard time to Jason.
This remake shows the “human” side of Jason plus it mentions the relationship with his dead mother. When I write violent, don’t think about the most violent 80’s Friday the 13th film, yes, The New Chapter. This new wave of violence displayed on Horror movies is very different. Now we have torture, long and painful death sequences (Not all of them), and gore in the likes of the TCM remake.
The technical values are pretty solid. The cinematography is excellent for this kind of movie. The score is raw but good with an almost absence of music. The gore is very good although I expected more of Savini-like gore. Still it worked very well. Talking about gore, the deaths are extremely good. Expect machete in the face, ax in the chest and back (ouch!), a female getting burned, butcher knife used, an arrow to the skull, knife into the eye, strangling, and more. Thanks holy violence! The editing is very good and sorry for being redundant, but the dark atmosphere plays very well through the movie.
The sex? Willa’s eatable breasts getting exposed while water-surfing, and Juilianna Guil’s steamy sex scene where we get to enjoy her stupendous breasts and her beautiful ass. Also, America Olivo is taken from behind and looks extremely sexy in all of her scenes.
