Ginger Liu wrote this review 5 years and 5 months ago
Never underestimate the earning potential of formulaic slasher movies. The originalFriday the 13th movies of the 80’s and 90’s pulled in half a billion dollars for Paramount worldwide. This years sequel follows on the back of other successful horror franchises that have risen like the dead in the last couple of years and include the 2003 and 2006 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and new kid on the block, Saw.
The 2009 sequel follows a group of sex starved and pot-loving campers at Camp Crystal Lake where the hockey-masked Jason sets about his machete-wielding killings with abandon.
