Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
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 weeks 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
Only good thing about this cinema experience was that I got to see the trailer for the "Watchmen" movie. I saw the original Friday the 13thmovies when I was a child, and thought they were funny. This new movie is more like number 11th than an actual remake though, also mixing elements from Saw, Texas Chainsaw, The Hills Have Eyes, and adding anew sadistic side to Jason. One good thing is that we do see a few interesting things about his background, for example, how he got the hockey mask. I had some high hopes for this movie, at least that it would live up to the word "remake" but really this was no different than, say, "Jason vs. Freddy" and "Jason X". It was just another movie in the Jason series. I cannot recommend this movie, and if the writers on IMDb had warned me against it, I wouldn't have gone to see it.
