PLOT-CRUNCH
A group of young adults who act like cherry teens go up to a cabin in the woods to smoke some shit, and do the nasty. They eventually get whacked out by their friendly Crystal Lake neighbor Jason Voorhees; a big dude with a hockey mask and “kill” on the grey matter.
THE LOWDOWN

ARROW NOTE: I am in Spain at the moment and saw the film in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish very well hence am sure some things went over my noggin. All that to say; I will be seeing the film in English again when I return to America, so my review may change then.

The only reason I was pumped to see this flick is that I’m a big FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise fan. I grew up with the films and know them like the back of my schlong. So it’s from the point of view of a lad that’s been kicking it with old Hockey Puss for a while that I am vomiting out this so called review.

Much like the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSCARE re-work, FRIDAY THE 13TH was not really a remake as it had nothing to do with following the original film’s storyline. And the only thing that kind of stopped it from being a sequel (and I stress the words “kind of”) is that no characters or major plot lines (Jason & his mommy aside) from the previous films returned. So I guess it’s a f*cking re-imagining, an attempt at rebooting the franchise for the new Gen. Did it work on my Voorhees loving ass? Well, yes and no. FRIDAY THE 13TH was easily one of the glossiest looking out of all the Voorhees entries (with Friday the 13th Part 6 standing right behind it). Striking cinematography, lots of plays with the ominous darkness on hand and striking shots of the environment; baby looked mighty good! The flick also got its old school slasher elements down pat: horny young adults, lots of hot dames that flash their boobies (Julianna Guill had my jaw drop into an empty bag of Popcorn, what a pair!) and a handful of mean spirited, sometimes inventive and graphic kills (I couldn't help thinking they could have gone further gore wise though... maybe it's just me being greedy). So that loving was covered for the most part.

The visual effects were on the money as well. Jason’s look if not a tad too familiar was the bomb design wise while the red grub came through as to its execution when displayed on screen What about the story? Well the flick ripped on Friday the 13th, Friday the 13th Part 2, Friday the 13th Part 3 and I’d say Part 6 if they had done something with the Sheriff character (tackled by the criminally underused Richard Burgi): they didn’t so I digress on that last one. Friday the 13th Part 4 was the main inspiration though in terms of this one right down to the Black & Asian dudes standing in for Crispin Glover and his "talk to the computer" pal in Part 4. That mofo crashing Crystal Lake to look for his missing sister was also right out of the Final Chapter. But not once did the edge and relentlessness of Part 4 emanate out of this re-imagining. Which brings me to my peeves with the flick. For starters, it launched with a potent slash and then went limp like me on too much JD! The first 15 minutes were solid in terms of pacing, harsh kills and running with momentum. Sadly, after that, the steam wore thin quickly. The pace became sluggish, excitement was rarely in sight and suspense was rarer than me at a Gay Pride Parade.

It didn’t help matters either that most of the characters were annoying as fudge. Apart from the fine poon in the house and the hero duder, everybody got my blood boiling. These mid twenties buffoon did shit that even fifteen year old kids wouldn’t do, no matter how much glue they'd sniff. Like drink fire-water out of a dirty shoe or attempt to beat their meat in a bud’s living room (just go to your bedroom man, much more chill). And don't get me started on the "I'm black" dropping Hollywood-made stereotypical black dude... don't do it man! Then we had Jason himself. Although Voorhees was deliciously Part 2 to Part 4 in vibe and his run and slash routine had me grinning, call me old fashioned but I like my Jason in two ways: dumb and psychotic circa Part 2 to 4. And as a one note Zombie killing machine a la Part 6 and beyond. Here they made him a high IQ lunatic who owes a lot to the killer from Wolf Creek in terms of psycho training. Jason had traps and spotlights around his home (nobody ever noticed that a well organized killer lived there... didn’t buy it) and he was mucho cunning. Just didn’t feel enough like the Jason I know and LOVE to me.

The fact that the flick also echoed Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 (Hooper version) in its ”Beauty and the Beast” thematics (felt out of character for Jason, he wouldn't keep a girl hostage IMO... just not Voorhees' way) and its villain’s underground lair/tunnels didn’t help in making him feel like a bonafide Voorhees either. Finally, the ending fell short on my ass. You see by playing Voorhees straight, they opened themselves up to plot holes. - MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD - Here the cap-off ripped off the finale of Part 6, but in the latter; Jason was a Zombie, so the hero’s actions made sense, here...well... why aren’t ya calling the cops yo? Why you disposing of evidence? Why you so damn dense! Bah...

All in all, being a mammoth FRIDAY THE 13TH fan; I brought my luggage with me to this one. It felt swell to be back at Crystal Lake and I respected the 80’s-ish vibe of this update. Alas on the whole, it was too uneven pace wise and far from its source as to its villain for it to satisfy me hardcore. So you in the mood for another game of Hockey with the killer goalie? Knock yourself out! Me, I will be going back to the old and TRUE franchise to get my 100% fix.

GORE
Voorhees meant business but I thought he held back a bit. He’s better than this. Compare the kills here to say Part 4 and you’ll see what I mean. With that yapped we get a machete in the head, screwdriver in the neck, girl burned alive, axe in the back, arrow in the head (yeah bitch), impaling by machete, another impaling, machete in the skull, a slit throat, a poker through the skull out the eye and more!
ACTING
Jared Padalecki (Clay) was tops of the lot in terms of ringing true and being on top of his shit while Derek Mears (Jason) did an admirable job as Voorhees. His physical acting and his mojo behind the mask worked, even if it wasn't full on Voorhees for me. Everybody else went from average to decent. With that said, I don’t watch a Friday the 13Th for the acting, so who gives a flying f*ck. Julianna Guill (Bree) deserves a special mention here; easily one of the hottest girls I’ve seen on screen this year…DAMN! No you don't get it...DAMN HOT DAMN!
T & A
Three different pair of titties graced us with their presence with Julianna Guill’s being my fav. Ample and REAL! I’m so in lust, it's not even funny!
DIRECTING
Nispel pulled a Nispel and I loved him for it! Although I liked the TCM remake (which he copied many o times in terms of shots here), his take on Crystal Lake was a gnarly one. Atmospheric cinematography, potent camera play, random tension, an able smoke machine...tight!
SOUNDTRACK
Half of it ripped off The Thing score and the other half reeked of the Halloween “stalk” score. It did the trick but I craved more Ki Ki K Ma Ma Ma.
BOTTOM LINE
This FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot was all right. I have a feeling Voorhees virgins will love it and old school bubbas will be split in the middle. Personally, the flick gave me some decent to mucho cool kills, lots of bouncing melons and a new kind of Jason that I was half and half on. He smelled too much like Leatherface meets Wolf Creek killer for my liking but I dug his presence and his run & gun, machete routine. The picture started off strong, got slow in the middle, not helped by grating and overly infantile 20 something mooks and it then got its groove back on for its slash-slash finale. Definitely a gnarly time at the movies, but nothing like the taunt and gory as hell ride that was MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D... still my numero uno slasher of the year so far...Amen Cabrones!
BULL'S EYE
The character of Tommy Jarvis (F13 4 to 6) was once a possibility in terms of being Voorhees' foe.

Both Jonathan Liebesman and John Moore were once up to bat for directing duties on this one.

The character of Sheriff Bracke was named after Crystal Lake Memories author Peter Bracke.

Scout Taylor-Compton auditioned for the role of Jenna - Danielle Panabaker got it.

I Dug It

I appreciate Arrow's and everyone else's preference to the simplistic Jason who operated on instinct & psychosis, but for me personally the angle they went with of him being a methodical hunter just made more sense (I know I opened myself up for a lynching there, but just bear with me) and appealed to what I think makes a monster more threatening. Using underground tunnels to navigate the camp and methodically hunting the visitors in my opinion made good ol' Jason more distinguished than the

Using underground tunnels to navigate the camp and methodically hunting the visitors in my opinion made good ol' Jason more distinguished than the other iconic horror villains, he came off as hate-incarnate.

That being said, I do agree that holding Whitney captive was just an excuse for the writers to have the character exploit Jason's love for his mom like in Part 2; I don't see why they couldn't have found an alternate means to do that nod without resorting to the captive. Methodically hunting is one thing, but holding someone captive for thinking she's his mother (when he SAW her get decapitated) seemed contradictory to the intelligence they implied he had and was also a bit TOO far astray from Jason's established characteristics IMO.

This could have been so much more.

Probably one of the least effective of all the "Friday the 13th" movies, despite this one is well photographed by Daniel Pearl (The man who shot, both the original and remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") and a good performance by Derek Mears (The Hills Have Eyes 2), who plays Jason Voorhees.

I should have giving this movie 2 Stars instead of 2.5 stars. I like the movie technically how it looks but i don`t love it like the original "Friday the 13th" series was.

The cast are mixed bag, most of the males are boring expect Mears and Aaron Yoo as a Slacker. The female cast are a little better, especially Danielle Panabaker (Mr. Brooks), Amanda Righetti and Julianna Guill. Guill`s surprisingly raunchy sex scene with Travis Van Winkle is probably memorable for the wrong reasons.

Another problem with the movie is certainly the lousy script, written by the two guys, who wrote "Freddy Vs Jason". They made Jason Voorhees almost turning into Leatherface instead. Although this remake is made by the same people, who did the 2003 version.

Another problem, maybe it was wrong to choose Marcus Nipsel as the director. It seems to me, that this man... only has the talent to direct remakes. Stop giving him remakes!

Overall, it wasn`t boring movie but very uninsipred and you hear very little of the music theme of the original series. If they do make a sequel. Please be a big improvement over this nicely done but failure of a movie. A true mixed bag of a picture.

To be brutally honest this remake sucked!! Almost all of the soon to be victimes were annoying and hard to like, so there were nobody to really root for except for maybe Jason himself which is pretty pathetic. There should of been some kind of backstory to see how Jason grew up and what led him to his vicious killing sprees, kind of like what they did with the Halloween remake and what ever happended to the mom being the killer, they just threw that idea out the window with this one which was a

There were no redeemable qualities in this remake even the kills didn't make up for anything, how can they mess up on something like Friday The 13th it's just pathetic! The filming though was slickly done just like it was in the TCM remake, though that remake was much better than this one. I thought there were no parts that were truely scary or chilling or even creepy which is an insult to the original because at least the original had some of those qualities. Overall I hate this remake and it's an insult to the original, they should stop remaking horror movies unless they are going to do it right or better. Don't waste your hard earned money on this remake folks! Stick with the original!

Good old harmless mainstream slasher fun

I actually liked this film, unlike Nispel's Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The TCM remake was serviceable, but did a disservice to the original.

See, the original TCM was one of the most artistic and atmospheric horror films I've ever seen. The original Friday 13th was not. Don't get me wrong, it was fun, but ultimately a Halloween cash-in redeemed by some memorable shots. So I guess I had lower expectations for this than other remakes or reboots.

In any case, I actually found this a fitting

In any case, I actually found this a fitting follow-up to the original, far more so than any of the other increasingly cheesy sequels. I honestly don't understand why (except maybe nostalgia) people have so much reverence for that cash-cow of a franchise. This is just product, same as the older sequels, except now it's more polished. In this movie Jason became more threatening than he's been for a long time. The kills were decent (someone really hated Aaron Yoo), and it didn't rely too much on comic relief.

My only real complaint is that the final shot is so tediously predictable it makes me want to throw sharp objects at the filmmakers for their lack of imagination. Nispel surely knows better, but no doubt the need to promote interest for the sequels was too great.

So much fun.

Hell, I liked it better the second time around. It has some of the most likable characters in the series, some great moments of mood and atmosphere (the lake scene is tops) and Jason felt like a threat again. The pet peeve I have is the lack of a more traditional Friday score. The chi chi chi ah ah ah was present, but the rest of the score was bog standard.

Not bad

I found this movie to be pretty good despite some pet peeves i had about it.
How is it that everyone living by the lake stayed alive just until the campers started showing up?

not even 80s cheese

Seriously, the only good scene in this movie was the arrow through the head. This movie was a watered down weak ass waste of time. I am pissed off I spent money to see this little bitch wannabe slasher movie. This is like comparing Slipknot (this movie, gay) to Cannibal Corpse (the other movies, not gay). Seriously, this movie fucking sucked!

I don't watch Friday the 13th movies looking for a coherent story line and creative narrative techniques. I watch them to have fun, get some few scares, and even laugh over ridiculous [link] This remake, for me at least, delivered. The atmosphere was good, the acting was not THAT bad, and it was none-stop in terms if the killings. And one other good thing, it didn't rely too much on "jump scares", as in: sudden NOISES that make you jump in your seat because it's lour.
It's no Shakespeare. And

Perfect review. Pretty much everything I thought about the film too. But I thought the gore was lower than you did. They seemed to cut away before any good gore happened, save for a few of the kills.

All in all, not bad, but not the best. Some where in the middle with Parts 5 and 7.....though 5 was gorier.


EDIT: I just watched this again on PPV and is it me or have they put some of the gore back in? It seems like the few second shaved off each kill in the theatrical version is back.

Anyhoo, I liked this MUCH better the 2nd time around. SO...I have raised my score...the kills were pretty damn good this time.

Im torn with this one

Like most, I had my doubts about this movie, but I actually like the texas chainsaw massacre remakes, so I wanted to give this one a chance. Though I must say the reviews I read on here didnt give me much confidence.
It was nice to see Mr. Vorhees back on the big screen, but it didnt exactly feel the same. It was way too polished for one, it looked at times as if the WB produced the remake. It had some decent kills, but very little gore, or shock value for that matter.

Skip it if you value true horror movies.

This had to be the worst F13th ever. Jason was not scary, he was missing something here. I think being that fast just killed it. He didn't have the suspense of the Jason's before him. Where they seemed like the silent stalker types, this guy was just run and kill, can't waste time trying to build suspense.

The characters were idiots, Jason had an underground lair and there were too many inhabitants living in the area (some who know about Jason even...) The list could go on forever on how bad

This movie was about as bad as the Black X-mas remake.

blew it

I wasn't expecting the characters to be dumber than previous F13's. yes, folks, you read that right. I was hoping they would try to actually make this one serious and scary. Going back to the 80's cheese doesn't make sense to me. Why the F re-boot this then? My constipated cat = more suspense and chills than this film. See this for Julianna Guills tits, that's about it.

Dissapointed

I was really hoping I didn't hear the "meh" echo's from you too arrow. Most old school F13 fans did like it. I never understood how people who claim to be fans of the series overlook so much details that you seen in this film. So it's okay for Jason to use a speargun, but a bow and arrow is too much. What the hell?

The Whole Hostage thing was because the chick reminded Jason of his mother. Remember when her boyfriend saw the locket with jason's mom's photo? He said it looked like her. Only reason Jason let her live.
Film was Ok but Julianna Guill IS FUCKING HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will say that it was fun watching the audience cheer after the opening scene, and when Jason got the mask. It was something I never experienced before.

That said, there were points where the film dragged, the whole 'hostage' thing, and the 'eugh' dialogue from some characters brought me out of it. You have to admit as well, Arrow, the screwdriver death was particularly nasty.

What was up with the whole "Jason holds someone hostage" bit? Just didn't mesh well with me. The gore was not as intense or brutal as well......all in all, I felt like the movie was lacking, but I do give it kudos for Mears bringing a cunning Jason to the screen and the 80's style vibe. Just felt they could've done more with the movie as a whole.

Being an old school FRIDAY fan myself, I was also split down the middle on this one.

Enjoyed it alright, but there were some things about it that bothered me, one of which not mentioned (Since when does Jason keep a girl alive in a underground tunnel?! Okay, so she kind of looked like his mom, only younger. But still...) in the review.

Characters actually didn't bother me. I took them for what they were: folks walking around with bulls-eyes on them.

I admit the ending was kind of

I admit the ending was kind of cheap. The camera angle of Clay looking at the lake, I thought, was nicely done, though.

Nice job Jason did, impersonating Leatherface, but without the chainsaw and with a Hockey Mask.

Wow. I never knew there tunnels beneath Crystal Lake.

There was a lot of weed in the film. After sitting through this, although I had fun, I can't help but wonder if the filmmakers, Nispel in particular, had helped themselves to any of it...

Decent effort, but could've been better. 6/10 in my book.

I loved it. I personally thought Jasons actions were perfectly in tune with the character and mythology of the series, but fans seem to be split on that right down the middle.


One thing I dont get is the all out love for part 4. Aside from great kills, I found part 4 to be the most boring entry in the whole series.

Yep

I totally agree 100 percent.

In the English version the black guy did NOT use the N word at all. I didn't find his character to be stereotypical other than the fact that he was a rapper. lol.
