Friday the 13th Week: 6 Reasons Why The 2009 Friday The 13th Reboot Sucked

Those Damn Tunnels

Everything does not need an explanation. That is the first thing that any director or writer tasked with rebooting a classic horror franchise needs to understand. One of the tricks that Jason Voorhees has always had in these movies is an almost supernatural ability to somehow end up in front of his victims despite said victims having a head start, running at a full sprint and Jason just strolling along at a leisurely pace.
But this silly film saw fit to come up with the bright idea that there were tunnels that ran under the entirety of Camp Crystal Lake. Skip the fact that a mine running under the land adjacent to a big ass lake seems like a bad idea structurally, who the hell was asking for this stupid explanation? Audiences in the 80s just accepted that Jason knew shortcuts and that was the way things worked in these types of films and no one was asking for a plausible/real world explanation as to just how Jason always ended up in front of people he was chasing.
