So apparently Michael Bay is doing horror now. This movie is not the typical “Jason” movie. With Mr. Bay at the helm there is lots and lots of action. The first thing I noticed was that Jason is way more animated than the previous portrayal of him. Its not a bad thing, just different from the original character. In my opinion, this is a fairly decent re-make. They didn’t start from the very beginning, although there is a little history lesson in the intro. I think this was a good idea, I didn’t want them to start off a new series with Mrs. Voorhees as the killer because I didn’t like her as well. Story aside this was a great slasher film. The gore was there from beginning to end and the fans of horror had something to cheer about with the elaborate ways that Jason kills his victims. There were a couple moments when I thought I was watching some other horror film though. One in particular was where Jason shot the guy driving the boat with a compound bow. Jason usually sticks with the machete for his kills. This was not my favorite Jason movie to date but it was a pretty good horror movie all in all and I will be getting it on DVD to check out the extras. For all of the people out there who like nudity there is plenty to be seen in this one. I know some people I know just went to watch it because it was rated R. I recommend to all horror fans and fans of the “Friday the 13th” movies.
