The best movie of the series
12 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a Friday the 13th horror fest & watched parts 1-7. Part 1 gets 8 stars, part 2 gets 9 1/2, part 3 gets a 9, part 4 gets a 7,part 5 gets 4 stars, part 6 gets 5 stars & part 7 gets 10 stars. I thought that part 7 was different than all the others & had better kills. I thought that it definitely was the best of the series so it gets 10 out of 10. What made it better than the original was that it had more plot twists than the original & it had more twisted up characters that you had to figure out, & you didn't know where Jason was going to appear next. Also, the acting was bad, & that really characterized the movie & it really made it good. 10 stars.
