Chewie knows his place in this determinedly un-new Friday the 13th: Asian Nerd About to Die.

Call this go-round "Friday the Umpteenth" and be done with it.

Not exactly good, as it follows the archetypal, plot- and character-free old school '80s slasher rubric to the letter.

Same old killer, same old garbage.

As movies about killing sprees go, Friday the 13th is OK.

Though certainly not Wajda's strongest film, Katyn is perhaps his most affecting since his 1970s to '80s heyday

This is a desperately anodyne horror movie with all the flavour of soggy lettuce.

One thing this latest rehash - No 11, by my count - does achieve, is make the original look like a frickin' masterpiece.

Unlucky for almost everyone. It's a sad day when a Friday the 13th remake is shown up by a My Bloody Valentine remake - couldn't they at least have sprung for 3-D?

This "reimagining", by the director Marcus Nispel, of the 1980 slasher movie is one hell of a bore.

The film, an endless succession of strippings, slashings and skewerings, looks as if the production team had learnt their art doing work experience under the influence of drugs at an abattoir next door to a nudist camp.

Such is the one-dimensional nature of the slabs of meat masquerading as characters that it's hard to care for their fates, and a painfully contrived romantic intrigue between two of them hardly helps the cause.

One for horror fans that everyone else can happily avoid.

The acting is always good, but when it's not, you can always expect that character to flash her boobs, so who's complaining?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Somewhere inside Jason Voorhees' latest escapade is a hilarious comedy yearning to break free from the stifling clutches of its over-serious guardians.

More of the same doled out in such a way that it somehow feels like less of the same.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Como parte de uma série descerebrada cuja maior virtude é exibir os seios gigantescos de suas atrizes e mortes sangrentas provocadas por todo tipo de instrumento, o filme é até razoável. Como terror que deveria provocar tensão ou sustos, nem tanto.
| Original Score: 3/5

The fact that Travis Van Winkle's smarmy rich kid is a dead ringer for Michael Bay has got to be some sort of inside joke, right?
