After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.

A mother and daughter move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over.
Six tourists hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploration, they soon discover they are not alone.
A group of young adults set up tent near the abandoned summer camp where a series of gruesome murders are said to have taken place back in 1980. 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. Written by

Okay...this is probably the WORST re-make of an original movie I've ever seen (except for maybe the re-make of "Halloween")! The acting was terrible, except for Jared Paladecki who is pretty good. But, his TV series "Supernatural" is better than this garbage! The directing and filming were awful as well. Everything was so "choppy" and seemed constantly out of sequence. Everything was also mostly done in the dark and half the time you couldn't tell what was going on. Jason was one place...suddenly seconds later he's at a completely different one...then back to the first place. You're left going "Huh??" But the biggest disappointment is the fact that this movie is NOT SCARY!! It's just SICK! There's a difference. The original "Friday the 13th" had you on edge and you never knew when the killer was going to pop out. It also focused more on the "scares" rather than how much you can torture a person. The original "Friday" is fun to watch...for as low budget as it was then, it still works! The old adage of "the simpler the better" majorly comes into play here. This re-make "Friday" is NOT fun to watch...again it's just sick. Want a good fright or scare flick on a stormy evening? My advice is rent or buy the original 1980 "Friday the 13th"...or the original 1978 "Halloween!" The new re-makes of both these movies completely miss the point and are nothing but garbage!!
