Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
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.
A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.
Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
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
Aaron Yoo actually won the role of "Chewie" very close to shooting. Up until then, one of the top choices to play him was David Blue. See more »
After the verbal altercation with Trent at the lake house, Jenna leaves with Clay Miller, who is carrying a satchel. As they approach Miller's motorcycle, notice how the position of the satchel changes from being strapped around Miller's left shoulder, to being carried in his right hand, and, finally, back to his left shoulder.

Of all the horror remakes of recent years, Friday THE 13TH has to be one of the worst. The reason? Because it fails to find a voice and style of its own, content instead to derivatively copy the look and feel of a dozen inferior horror outings such as WRONG TURN and THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE remake. It starts off by following the plot of the first three films featuring Mrs Vorhees, sack-head Jason and hockey mask Jason before falling apart entirely with cliché after cliché as the killer goes after a bunch of dull people.
This film fails because it doesn't have a single interesting character least of all bland Jason, who doesn't have anything approaching the brutality of the killer once played by Kane Hodder. The victims are all of them irritating and faceless, so you'll look forward to seeing them die except even the death scenes are unmemorable. A week after watching this and I don't recall a single murder from the film, it's that dull and lacking in creativity. The filmmakers throw in plenty of nudity in an attempt to liven things up, but needless to say it's not enough to sustain the movie. Even the godawful sequels, like JASON TAKES MANHATTAN, were better than this!
