Storyline

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

Solid outing for the angry goalie
13 February 2009 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

In response to Wayne Malin, the acting is much better than in the rest of the movies, you do hear the ch-ch-ch-ch-ah ah ah ah in this, and for those of you who don't recall, the original did have nudity in it. Remember Kevin bacon's big sex and death scene? I'm thinking Wayne here didn't even bother seeing this movie and is one of those guys that sits on IMDb all day on his mothers MAC.

This movie is a lot of fun, and has what I personally enjoy. Hot chicks having sex and getting killed, silly comic relief types a la Jimbo and Ted from the final chapter and good splatty murders. Is it going to change the world? No, it is a good 95 minute mind jelly movie. Don't go into it planning to over analyze it. Just enjoy. Its a good time.
