  Not true Jason but alright

| | See all weeepammy's reviews (17)

If your a big fan of the original Friday the 13th collection then this is not what you'll get here. Yeah it's an alright slasher movie but it is not really the true Jason here.
Worth a watch maybe once out of curiosity.

I did not find this film to be worthy of the series. I'm a big horror fan and this film bored me towards the end. Would not recommend to others, stick to the originals.

  Another unnecessary remake

"In my next life, I wanna be one of the buttons on the ass pocket of her shorts."

Yep, one of the great lines from yet another unnecessary reboot of a classic franchise.

  Derivative but effective re-boot

The Film: After the success of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake it was inevitable that the same production company would give other horror classics similar treatment. Hence we have this re-imagining of the 80s slasher. I use the term re-imagining because this is not strictly speaking a remake of the Sean S Cunningham flick (which is used here only to replace the foundation of Victor Millers original story). What we in fact have is a truncated mega-mix of Jasons finest moments from Parts 2 through to 4. For fans of the series thats probably not a bad thing and the film does what it needs to effectively. It may be thin on plot but the performances are solid enough and the subsequent slayings notably unpleasant (although I did find one of them a little too sadistic). The editing could perhaps have been a little tighter in order to evoke some more tension but theres nice use of Harry Manfredinis trademark score which does add gravitas to the proceedings. The DVD: The 5.1 audio is a real winner as is the sharp widescreen transfer. The documentaries Rebirth of Jason Voorhees and Hacking Back/Slashing Forward although interesting are almost identical and could easily have been edited into one feature where-as 7 Best Kills seems to be simply filler. Beware though as all these bonuses have huge spoilers so if this is a first time viewing then watch the movie first. The deleted/alternate scenes only contain minimal interest and theres no commentary for the movie itself. Summary: Not a patch on the original but with an improved/menacing Jason and polished production more enjoyable than any of the sequels.

this is a awesome remake of the 1980 original and the best by far of the series.the young and not so well known actors give brilliant performances and damion shannon and mark swifts screenplay is spot on.the special make up effects are the best ive seen for some time.and the film goes a long at a good pace.there is loads of screaming and some very gory moments.but for me this film rocks and is the best of the series

ok first i will have to say this is the best remake of a film i have ever seen it is basicually a remake of friday the 13th part 2 with a different plot but it is a excellent addition to the franchise if you own the others also contains some scenes that were cut out of the film and alternative scenes which i think they should have used in the film its self because some of them are better so dont forget to watch them its a steal for the price of just 4.99 a film you can watch more than once

I wasnt really a fan of the origional movies so when the remake came along i wasnt looking forward to it but to my surprise this was excellent. Ok the acting was poor on the most part and the story isnt really that important enough to effect the film. You have to base a slasher film on how good the killings were and in this case it was brilliant and suspenceful at times. Jason is an iconic killer and is finally used better in this revamp. Not as good as the remake for "Halloween" but still its pretty good nonetheless. Enjoy
