Synopsis / Plot
A remake of the classic horror film directed in 1980 by Sean S. Cunningham. Welcome back to Crystal Lake in a chilling re-imagining of the classic horror film. Searching for his missing sister, Clay Miller heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has in the search for his missing sister, Whitney, with the help of Jenna, a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are all about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they've entered the domain of Jason Voorhees.
Critics' reviews
  • "Friday the 13th is about the best 'Friday the 13th' movie you could hope for. Its technical credits are excellent. It has a lot of scary and gruesome killings. Not a whole lot of acting is required. (...) Rating: ★★ (out of four)."
  • "The surprise is that it does so with vicious aplomb (...) with a gleeful sense of fun. (...) There's an itch for this kind of material [gore], and here it is scratched -- to the bone."
  • "Same old number for 'Friday the 13th'. (...) While it's billed as a "re-imagining" of the horror franchise, this Friday is more like a rehash, delivering just what you expect and nothing more. (...) Rating: ★½ (out of four)."
