Friday the 13th Reviews

Worth noting: The title card of Friday The 13th doesn't show up until about 45 minutes into the film, which, all told, has to be a record.

Watertown Daily Times

Nispel, Shannon and Swift had all the tools at their disposal to create death scenes that are both unique and shocking, but there is really only one slaying that is remotely notable, and that involves a topless woman hiding underneath a boat pier.

For all its attempted jolts, it's not all that scary. The genre is reduced to 'Who gets it next and how?' and never for a second makes us care.

Friday The 13th is essentially critic-proof - it's been cynically designed from the ground up as a fun but forgettable slasher flick with a one-week expiry date.

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. If that's what you want to find out, you can stop reading.

Remake, reboot, re-envisioning -- whatever you call it, it amounts to the same thing: a cynical money grab.

Friday the 13th isn't great cinema by any means, and you probably know better than I whether you'll enjoy the movie.

It's a case of 'he's behind you!' repeated ad nauseum, where sudden bursts of sound stand in for real scares.

Horror remake isn't for anyone, let alone teens.

Friday the 13th Part 12 will not sell at the box office, so they toss the word 'remake' out there to dupe its audience into another installment of this crappy horror flick.

A classic is a classic and attempts to remake are usually ridiculed. This is no exception.

A key revelation halfway through the movie lumps Jason into a long, tired tradition of deformed backwoods boys whose motivations weather down to a scorned sense of isolation.

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

Times [UK]

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

The same dumb character decisions stick around to facilitate the murder.

The problem with this remake is that it's a remake in the first place.

ComingSoon.net

Completely misses the point of what worked ... a relatively unsatisfying rehash of what's come before while barely moving the franchise past the overused cliches.

Friday the 13th has a sexy cast, lots of blood 'n guts and nudity, but lacks the palpable thrills and chills of the original.
