FRIDAY THE 13th...Was a Success

The hockey mask wearing serial killer Jason Voorhees is back in the latest Friday the 13th film.
However this is not just another installment in the Friday the 13th film series but a complete reworking of the storyline. The film keeps many elements of the original series, while at the same time being surprising and scary. Everyone who is familiar with the original Friday the 13th film series already knows the basic storyline: deformed boy drowns, his mother goes crazy and becomes a murderer and is ultimately killed, boy returns from the dead and seeks revenge on all camp counselors. But this new film gives a bit of a twist that the original film never hinted on which was what if Jason had never been dead in the first place.

The film lets the viewer see how Jason becomes Jason so to speak, and gives us some clues about how he was able to survive so to speak. From what drove Jason to become a serial killer to how Jason lived to why he started wearing his trademark mask are all explained to some degree in the film. Hence the film becomes one of revenge, and protecting what one feels is rightfully there’s, and trying to unlock the clues of the unknown. However like the original film series Jason never says a word and remains the silent monster stalking his victims. also in this film Jason does not just kill his victims with his trademark machete but uses other methods and weapons to accomplish his task.
