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

Intimidating
17 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After it was announced that the "makers of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Ammityville Horror" were remaking it, I was a little nervous to see it. I like the director's style, but I thought it was a little high and mighty to claim those previous films as if he'd made the originals. If he was going to screw this up like Rob Zombie did Halloween, what would we be left with? Lord knows that won't ever be the same again.

But I have to say, Jason blew us all away when he hit that big screen for the first time in six years. They gave us everything a Jason fan wanted to see and more. This film didn't break any of the old rules set up by previous Fridays, and yet it took a genuine turn back into the direction of when Jason was just a mad man running around in the woods. But he was smart this time- he was quick, and he was freakishly angry! If you weren't scared (or just aren't scared) by the jump-in-your-seat scare tactics of this film, you will be intimidated by Jason Voorhees altogether. Stoners and perverts will be happy too!

But please, leave your kids at home for this one. No one wants that complex for twenty years.
