6 Reasons Why The 2009 Friday The 13th Reboot Sucked

There is a lot not to like about the 2009 FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, it was awfully written (by a cadre of writers no less) and mundanely directed and had the unmitigated gall to actually have Jason Voorhees running. Running I say!!! Jason doesn’t run; he walks at a brisk pace but that is about it. But those are not even the things that I am most bothered by. So with that in mind I present to the world on this Friday the 13 of May in the year of our Lord 2016 my top 6 reasons for why the FRIDAY THE 13TH Reboot sucked.

They Crammed The Original Friday the 13th Film Into the Opening Credits

I think this re-imagining of the original FRIDAY THE 13TH that ran through the opening credits was my favorite part of the movie. It was shot in a moody black and white, Nana Visitor was a delightfully demented Pamela Voorhees and even in the brief time she was on-screen she showed a lot of pathos and tragedy in the character right up to the point where she got her head cut off. So why is this scene something I consider a reason why the movie sucked? Because this barely 2 minutes of the movie made the other 95 minutes pale in comparison. New Line Cinema would have probably been better off just doing a true remake of the original FRIDAY and saved Jason for the sequel.

  1. All reasons are really stupid! I acctually find these positives, like Jason kidnaping makes sense, i liked that it only stood some moments with Pamela and Jason kept her head and took the girl as a reminder, and the actor who plays Jason is FUCKING BADASS…. And liked the tunnels, the arrangements, the backstory of locations…. It is honestly one of my favourite remakes, but Nightmare on elm street sucked ass!
