Among the best sequels in the series
27 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After moving into a new house on Crystal Lake, a family finds the teens next door have attracted maniacal killer Jason Voorhees to the area and must band together to save each before falling victim to the masked killer.

This one turned out to be among the better entries in the series and is probably only behind the original in terms of being the series' best. This one has a lot right, starting first-and-foremost with what is perhaps the greatest final chase in a series known for having good ones. This here is quite simply one of the best of the entire chase, with tons of sprawling action, chilling suspense, psychological tactics and even some jumps, culminating in one of the most notorious gore gags in the genre as a brilliant ending to such an excellent series of events. As well, there's a huge amount of blood and gore on display from the big body count that gets wiped out in pretty fun, graphic manners. Added together with a great smattering of suspense in some creepy, chilling stalking and set-up scenes and a huge heaping of nudity, this one gets a lot of stuff right as a slasher. There's still a few flaws here, mainly in the continued stupidity by the characters to want to invite themselves to a place that harbored a mass murder rampage the last few days before, considering each of these films takes place the following day, and there's no reason why that should be. As well, many of the supposedly funny character traits are just plain irritating, making that section of the film a little tough to get through when it's supposed to be funny but clearly isn't, yet these aren't anywhere near enough to knock this down from among the better slasher entries.

Rated R: Nudity, Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, and a few sex scenes.
