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 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

Not a bad movie as far as pure horror elements go. The killings are inventive and brutal, the slasher formula is slightly tampered with to add a bit of extra mileage in the form of a "double beginning" (you'll see; I won't spoil it), and Jason is true to form.
Of course, the movie is produced in 2009, so we have a few attempts from the "chosen" over at Hollywood to make it socially (ir)relevant. And so, every white guy in the film looks like he jumped out of a Levi's commercial (you know, fly-aways in his hair, slight stubble); another one looks like Tom Cruise; the white girls are blond, dirty-mouthed, and won't even bring their boyfriend a beer(didn't you know being useless is synonymous with being an "independent" modern woman?); the Asian guy is effeminate and funny in a predictably corny way; and, God forbid we forgot, this mostly white, well-to-do crowd inexplicably has the token black guy in their midst, whom the writers made sure to write so as to give us a "lesson": he won't help friends pump gas in the car because he's black and doing work would be demeaning, he snaps at one of the girls over some imagined racial slight that would only make sense to brainwashed P.C. imbeciles (it's ridiculous to anyone with a brain), and the only halfway useful thing he does is to be the single male to give Jason a (small) run for his money when it comes to physical, animalistic violence: black guy hit Jason back. Well.. at least that part is slightly more true to real life.
It's hard to imagine any self-respecting white person would be friends with a black guy who was an oversensitive, "entitlement"-minded little waste of life, who got his panties in a twist anytime he imagined someone is out to "diss" him.
But, then again, that's what the hooks in Hollywood think our society should be like, and if they can't pummel it into our heads via years of forced busing and the decrepit public education system, at least they can attempt to do it in movies by glorifying drugs, encouraging women to be worthless whores, and pretending black guys are "strong" and deserving of a arse-kissing.
Other than all of THAT hogwash... good movie! :)
