Taking the Jason story in new directions
My quick rating - 6,2/10. This is far from your typical fan made movie. This easily could've had a theater release. All aspects of the slasher movies are done quite nicely in this. Starting off 30 years after Friday the 13th part 6, the story very fluidly and intelligently extends the whole Jason universe including aspects from the original flick and even the ones that came after #6 so it didn't act like those things never happened. Being impressed with the script of this was about the last thing I expected to happen but any fan of the series will be floored at the attention to details and the manner of keeping the story going while adding unique new elements. The kills are easily on par and sometimes exceed what we have seen before. If you decide to have sex, expect to die in this one as well. The body count is setup perfectly for them and everyone knows that staying together is a terrible idea and makes sure to separate every chance they get. All the beloved tropes are here, all the characters (welll, many) return so Tommy Jarvis will come into play as well. If that name rings a bell, you have found the movie you have been waiting for in the series. I know the acting is supposed to suck, but that is really the only low point here. I don't know how such a well made movie, looking so great, camerawise, editing, cinematography, sound, the whole production value sits at being a fan film. This is feature film quality and I hope there is a sequel.
