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

Trivia

Although it's only been regarded as a remake of Friday the 13th (1980), it also combines story elements from Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) and Friday the 13th Part III (1982), along with several references to Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986), and Jason X (2001).

Goofs

In the scene where Jason is walking up to the house and sees Trent and Bree having sex through the bedroom window, you can clearly see the ceiling fan above them is on and spinning. In the next scene which is a close up of Bree from the waist up, the ceiling fan is not moving at all. See more »

Balance not quite right
12 February 2009 | by (Nelson, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Friday the 13th has an incredibly powerful first 15-20 minutes. It really kicks off with a bang. Jason is back better than ever. Then something goes fractionally wrong and we fall back into old territory. Everything becomes a bit too familiar. Still, it does better than most horror films in the sense that it really doesn't become too tedious until the last 10 minutes or so.

The main characters are strong in their performance without being memorable. The cameos are the real scene stealers including a gas station attendant and a man named Donnie. A lot of the jokes from all concerned really hit the mark though and are a nice touch to the film.

The Friday the 13th remake is what it is and at the end of the day probably all that could realistically have been hoped for. It won't decrease the seemingly ever growing hate of remakes, but it certainly won't add to it either and that in itself is an achievement.
