Cast overview, first billed only:


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 J. Spurlin

User Reviews

16 February 2009 | by (Upstate new York) – See all my reviews

my review this movie makes original Friday fans feel like a kid again, it certainly has a bit of comic relief. Which is a nice touch, like the girl underneath the docks. If you haven't seen it i wont ruin that for you. Truly memorable ha ha. And although i enjoyed the Texas remake, the Halloween as well.(one of the few people that did...) This really didn't have that extra level of gore, Which means you can bring your kids with you to see it. Enjoy it with them just as myself and im sure many others did with there parents back in the day. The story line and acting is very well written, i think. the murder scenes are very memorable and some are certainly fresh. Anyway with any Friday fan who has been patiently waiting for this special moment in horror film history, lol this movie really breaks the mold. There truly aren't to many flaws to this already classic revamping of Friday THE 13th... I hope anyone with a little respect for the series loves it as much as i do.
