This followed the same formula as the original but this does have a bit of added spice. Gore. The gore is much better in this compared to the original though there isn't much more. The characters are paper thin and I found myself not caring about a single one of them. I guess something I did appreciate was that the murder sequences weren't stretched out for ten minutes when they should be done in like two minutes.
Definitely the best of the first three (still too soon to decide if its the best of all). This movie has got it all: Great gore, descent acting, hot girls, Jason with his hockey mask, and just good ol slasher quality. This has all that slashers embody and I'm glad as hell that decided to buy this franchise.
