Review: Friday the 13th (2009)

In On Film on February 22, 2009 at 8:47 pm

So here it is. After a week’s delay thanks to a sold-out theater, my Friday the 13th review can finally come to pass. I feel that I’ve screwed myself over in the last week by posting rants on the homepage about the problem I have with remaking horror films. I know it seems like I had my mind made up that I hated the movie before I even saw it, but I assure you that wasn’t the case. I actually went into this film with an open mind. Despite this, (surprise!) I hated the movie. Be warned, some SPOILERS will be sprinkled throughout the review.

As most are certainly well aware, this Friday is the ressurection of an old friend to the horror community. Of course, I’m talking about Jason Vorhees. As much as I’m firmly against any sort of remake, I have small hopes that this film will be enough to bring the Crystal Lake slayer back from the dead once more. In honor of his rebirth, I have decided to do “5 days of 13”. From today (Monday) until Friday, I will rank/discuss the movies from best to worst (keep in mind, this is just my opinion. No hate mail, please). Freddy v.s. Jason will not be included. All of this will culminate with my review of the new Friday the 13th late Friday night/early Saturday morning. So with all of that out of the way, let the festivities begin.
