The Hollywood remake disease continues with another attempt to breathe new life into a license which has already been whored to death with the twelfth entry in the Friday the 13th series. This is actually like a reworking of the original three films put together. Part one is dispensed with during the opening credits as Mrs Voorhees is beheaded and we plunge straight into manic Jason action as he slaughters some camping teens. He finds his mask for the final assault on another group of teens holed up at a holiday lodge. This Jason is fast, he doesn't bother with stalking much and he has an underground lair where he inexplicably keeps one of the girls chained up despite slaughtering everyone else on sight. This must be because her brother (Jared Padalecki) is searching for her and he is the main character. All of the additions are awful and somehow the film manages to drag despite being just 90 minutes long and having a high body count.

Gore - there is a fair bit of gore and some nicely done murder sequences with fast cut aways to avoid grossing out the audience
