Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Its been 6 years since the hockey mask-wearing villain Jason Voorhees was last seen on the big screen in Freddy vs Jason. Now he's back and this time they're starting it over again. Does this reboot live up to the original? Does it successfully give new life to the Friday the 13th franchise that had otherwise died off in 2002 (not counting Freddy vs Jason)? Was it even any good? It's time to give us your opinion on this new horror reboot. How does it rank against the 11 over movies? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Friday the 13th.
To fuel the fire, I really liked this new Friday the 13th a lot. Probably even more than most (but not all) of the original movies. It was the kind of reboot that this franchise needed and I think director Marcus Nispel and everyone else did a great job with it. To put it simply, it was just fun and entertaining, like a good slasher horror movie should be! It may have not been perfect, a lot of the actors were idiots, but it made for some easy pickings and huge sighs of relief when certain ones died. Honestly, I really had a good time watching this and I'm already looking forward to the sequel, if they make one. Bring on more Jason!
What did you think of Friday the 13th? A successful reboot or another horror flop?
