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 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 J. Spurlin

Trivia

The first film in the series released by both New Line Cinema and Paramount Pictures. Originally, Paramount owned the rights to the series after the original was released in 1980, but sold the rights to New Line Cinema in the early 1990s after poor box office returns of Jason Takes Manhattan (1989). New Line bought the rights to the characters of Jason Voorhees and Pamela Voorhees, the Crystal Lake name, and the trademark for the title "Friday the 13th". All footage from the first eight films and the remake rights for the first film remained the property of Paramount. New Line Cinema released Jason Goes to Hell (1993), Jason X (2001) and Freddy vs. Jason (2003). When Platinum Dunes came aboard to develop the new film, they wanted the freedom to use scenarios and characters from the films still owned by Paramount. After a legal dispute, the companies decided to co-produce the 2009 film. See more »

Finally, A Remake That Didn't Bomb
23 February 2009 | by cameron-kills-itSee all my reviews

"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

Grade: C-
