    Synopsis


    Friday the 13th
    A man in search of his missing sister stumbles across a deadly secret in the woods surrounding Crystal Lake as Texas Chainsaw Massacre redux duo Michael Bay and Marcus Nispel resurrect one of the silver screen's most feared slashers -- machete-wielding, hockey mask-wearing madman Jason Voorhees. The last time Clay heard from his sister, she was headed toward Crystal Lake. There, amidst the creaky old cabins and moss-coated trees, an unstoppable force of evil lies quietly dormant, patiently waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Though the police and locals all warn Clay to stay as far away from Crystal Lake as possible, it's the only lead he has, and he isn't willing to give up until he finds his sister. Clay isn't the only one inhabiting these woods either, because a group of thrill-seeking college students have just arrived at Crystal Lake hoping for a wild weekend of fun in the sun. Later, as Clay and one of the recently arrived revelers search for clues, the infamous Jason Voorhees emerges to show them just why the locals have avoided these woods for years. Could it be that Clay's sister has already met a grim demise at the end of Jason's razor-sharp machete, or is she still out there somewhere in the woods, waiting for her brother to come to her rescue? Freddy vs. Jason scribes Damian Shannon and Mark Swift pen the screenplay for a remake executive produced by Sean S. Cunningham (producer/director of the original Friday the 13th). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      My wife and I liked this movie! It wasn't as good as some of the other remakes, mostly because of the cast, but still good. I love all the remakes of old classic horror films. But, I know some people are old school and stuck in thier ways and think they should be left alone. Don't get me wrong, I still love the old ones. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have the new ones. The reason I like the recent horror remakes, (Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Last House on the Left, etc.), is because we have better special effects now, better cinematography, better acting (except this one), and more money to put into the film. Plus, with some of them we've been able to elaborate the storyline a bit more, like with Halloween and this one. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is for the acting and the cast all around, other than Jason. The cast was very fake and unrealistic. They look like they picked them out of an Abercrombie and Fitch catalog. I know, they're all suppose to be a bunch of immature college kids out partying in the woods before they get killed. But, they went a little overboard in my opinion. I didn't recognize any of the cast members, then again, I don't watch teenie-bopper shows like the OC. I did, however, like the guy that played Jason, he was reminiscent of Kane Hodder. All around though, this film was fun to watch and a great remake. I recommend this to anyone who's a fan of classic slasher films!

      I am a big horror fan and also a big fan of the original Friday the 13th film so I was a little sceptical when I first heard this remake was being made. However its by the same guys that did the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake so this calmed my nerves a little bit as I actually enjoyed the TCM remake, nowhere near as good as the original but a very good effort at making the film for a new generation. This is pretty much the same case here, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this film. I watched it with my sister and she jumped quite a bit during the last 30 minutes or so. I liked the story of the brother going back to look for his sister as it added a different little twist on the straight forward story of the original. There are a few familiar faces in the film, Jared Padalecki who stars in the series Supernatural gives a decent performance here as the brother looking for his sister, also Danielle Panabaker, Mr Books movie, is excellent as ever in this slasher film, playing as the girl who help nice boy find his sister lockup in Jason's home. If you are a horror fan this is definately worth a watch, I am now a fan of the original and of the remake. Trust me you won't be dissappointed.

      Jason Is Back, more Deadly Than Ever

      Posted

      The new Jason is leaner and meaner than ever. There's method to his madness, and it all makes sense (well, a Jason kind of sense). This particular flick plays it back to Jason's hey-day before he became the Kane Hodder lumbering zombie, and is easily better than everything that came after part 4. In keeping with tradition, the kills are swift and very brutal - and there's lots of them. In short, If you're a long-time Vorhees fan, you'd be mad to listen to the naysayers and not give this a go. The actual Blu ray itself has crystal clear 5.1 HD dolby sound and a flawless picture. Black levels are deep and colours well saturated, with plenty of detail. This version is 9 minutes longer than the cinema version, adding extra plot and some gore. Jason isn't in Hell, he isn't even in outer space (lol). He's back where he belongs at Camp Crystal lake, doing what he does best ;-)

      I don’t know why people hate on this movie

      I thought it was great! Sure, Some sub par acting, but let’s be honest here, most people don’t watch the Friday series for the acting. This is actually a reboot of part 2, which I love. So many fans rioted when they didn’t cast Kane Hodder as Jason, but I gotta he honest with you, Derek Mears makes a better Jason than he does. They give Jason some emotion, he isn’t some unstoppable demon possessed killing machine. He doesn’t have supernatural powers, he’s just a grown up boy who watched someone kill his mom. This might actually be my favorite Friday movie out of all of them. Truly, give it a watch. It’s really good!

      Great Remake of a Classic Horror Franchise

      Posted

      I went to see this remake when the movie came out and I was really surprised how great the movie turned out. I think it was one of the best horror remakes that I have seen in a long time. I am a huge Friday the 13th Fan since I have all the Friday the 13th Movies on DVD and will also be getting them on Bluray. I think this movie is a must own because it brings a new direction to the Jason Voorhees Character. The new kills were great and just the first 10 to 15 minutes of the movie was crazy which turned out to be the actual introduction. I am definitely recommend people who are fans of the origiinal series to buy this on DVD or Bluray when it comes out tomorrow I know I am. I can't wait for part 2 to come out.

      This movie was a nice touch to the franchise, but as always, the makers could not finish the movie with a good ending to save their lives (no real pun intended). What person in their right mind would go through all that chaos only to then remove the killer from a woodchipper and drag his heavy @$$ down to the lake?! Who would even think that is a good idea. "Hey sis, let's pull this dude out of the wood chipper and drag your deformed, murdering capter down to the lake." "What! No. Let's get out of here and get help!" "No sis, I think this is a great idea and a perfect way to end the movie too. See, we drag him down there for no reason and then he will come back to life and kill us!" She should have stuffed her stupid brother into that chipper after Jason! Terrible ending to an otherwise ok addition to the series and character of Jason Voorhees.

      Friday The 13th: 29 years later, this remake proves that the saga is an unstoppable movie series juggernaut. This time the effects are mainly done with computers, unlike Freddy vs. Jason and Jason X, which stuck with the traditional special effects methods. In this 'Killer Cut', the movie is far more intense, you even get some of a scene that somewhat details Jason's pyschological trauma. The only downside of the 'Killer Cut' is that the DVD edition is almost 'barebones', you get a featurette, deleted scenes and some traillers. For those who want the movie in theaters buy the Friday The 13th DVD; For those who want something more, buy the Killer Cut on DVD; And for those who want even more, buy the Killer Cut on Blu-ray.

      Friday 13th excellent re imagining

      I went in to view this film and was extremely sceptical- remakes are very rarely worth the watch. But from the pre credit scene I was hooked. Gorey, graphic and visually intense, with a little insight into Jason- he is easily one of my favorite horror movie characters and in this film he does not let anyone down. Although full of the cliches that make this kinds of film- such as the not so witty on liners before they fight back- With some really rather gruesome death scene's and suspense that could give you a heart attack I would definately recommend this to everyone- my one warning would be- Watch out for the dogs!
