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.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders 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 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
It shares screenwriters with Freddy Vs. Jason, who had previously turned down the chance to do a Freddy Vs. Jason sequel. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift
As a result of the legal delays, Friday the 13th lost its original director (Jonathan Liebesman) and screenwriter (Mark Wheaton). Freddy Vs. Jason writers Mark Swift and Damian Shannon, who had earned their first writing credit with Freddy Vs. Jason but had yet to get another script onto the screen, were brought in to replace Wheaton. Both grew up huge Jason/Freddy fans, but their Freddy Vs. Jason script was largely re-written by David S. Goyer, who went uncredited, and the far campier film that came out of that was not to their liking. Still, New Line actually offered them the chance to pitch ideas for a Freddy Vs. Jason 2, which they turned down, according to Shannon, because "we thought maybe somebody else should tackle it because we shot our wad so to speak. Every idea we had about that was in the first. I don't know what we could have done with a second one." See more »
(at around 44 mins) When Chelsea is wake boarding, when she first gets up, she is clearly putting her left foot forward () however the first shot immediately after this, her right foot is forward (goofy), yet every other shot she is wake boarding with her left foot forward (regular). See more »
"Friday The 13th" is the story of a group of young people who are brutally massacred when camping near Crystal Lake. A few months later, a new group of kids, including one of the former kid's brother, goes to visit their friend who lives near the scene of the murder, however, they don't know that a murderer is stalking them and killing them. Okay, I thought for sure that this film was going to be horrible. Seriously, how could a remake of one of the most popular slasher flicks of all time be good? Well, I was wrong! It was surprisingly pretty good, and kept me entertained through the whole thing. The acting wasn't the best (Most of the women actors, besides Danielle Panabaker, were hired because they looked good naked, not because of their acting abilities.) The plot was okay, but I mean, hey, your expectations cannot be too high when you're watching a Friday the 13th, movie, you just have to go for the ride! All in all, it was a pretty good movie!
Rated: R for Violence, Sex, Nudity, Profanity, and Drug Use
