A Friday the 13th tribute that's OK, but not great
Most people on here say that this is a clear rip off that should be sued, but I saw this movie more as some sort of tribute to 80-90's horror movies where a mass murderer with a mask goes on killing random teens. Why did I see it as a tribute, rather than a rip off? Because the movie manages to poke fun at those old classics, and doesn't take itself, or the genre, too seriously. The following two quotes are examples of the way they do so:
We were watching Camp Slayer FOURTEEN (reference to the insane amount
of sequels to these horror movies)
/ When Tobe remembers offending the current suspect, Jason
Good God,I have offended a camp psycho, named Jason no less (a clear
reference to FT13th)
No, the problem most people have with this movie, is that they started to watch it and immediately condemned it, since the story seems familiar. To a movie like this, the story isn't that important, as is the feeling you get from it. This is where the movie gets cut short a bit though. I believe most killings should have happened at night, while now, they happen during broad daylight, which somehow doesn't give it that creepy atmosphere. There are a few scare scenes, which are done by the book, and can make you jump up a little, which is basically what you are looking for in movies like this. In all honesty, the scare scenes were good enough, but there should have been plenty more to keep this feeling of fear prolonged.
The story is OK, I mean, it's a plain copy from Friday the 13th, but there are multiple candidates to actually be Trevor Moorehouse, and up until the last 15 minutes I was still doubting between a few characters who could do the honours, but that could be my overall ignorance.
All in all, you can enjoy this horror movie, it's not amazing or a classic. If you see it the way I did, a horror movie poking fun at those classics, you can enjoy it. If you're already yelling bloody murder (sorry, bad pun intended) about it being almost the same story as Friday the 13th, you won't enjoy it, and only end up being frustrated. It's basically about being well prepared to watch it...
