Friday 13th (2009)

Well I guess it was inevitable that during the feverish remake culture we find ourselves in that Jason would eventually become a victim.

So I headed along to the midnight showing to see how it turned out… I was surprised! It’s not a bad slasher flick, could be more inventive in it’s despatches like the original series but not a bad atmosphere and it played well to a full cinema. Whether it added anything to the series or not I doubt. I’m a believer in just watching the originals and F13 still looks great.

Maybe this could have been just another movie in the series rather than a remake and it would have been just as good without having to live up to the legacy and all that – but worth a look. Camp Crystal Lake here we go again!
