    Hey, Sweden!
    Excellent review.

    I have many of the same sentiments about the series.

    And after reading this review,im literally spurting blood out of my eyeballs for Feb the 13th to arrive.

    :eek:

    I'll wait for DVD......

    I don'k know, this littke niggling voice inside my head is telling me that it will just be another crap remake of a cult classic....

    Its that uncertinty that is stopping me from considering going to see it.

    I'd rather wait......

    Well I may like it......I'm really not sure....

    As a die hard fan hoping to give others an idea of where I place the film, here my current ranking for the series:

    The Final Chapter
    Part III
    Part II
    Jason Lives
    Friday the 13th (1980)
    The New Blood
    Friday the 13th (2009)
    Jason X
    Freddy vs. Jason
    Jason Takes Manhattan
    Jason Goes to Hell
    A New Beginning

    Depending on repeat viewings, I could see the remake moving up or down a notch or two. Only time will tell there.

    I guess I'll wait for the critical reviews. But I'm truly not interested. Like I said before, Marcus Nispel is a shitty movie director and will no doubt fuck this up. Especially after hearing the cast and crew talk about it on His Name Was Jason, it will surely suck big-time.

    Tonight, if I can get this fucking sump pump system fixed before my basement floods. First plummer left with a horrid look of bafflement on his mug and a statement of, "I can't help you". That doesn't fill me full of joy.

    I did buy a machette today, not sure if I'm taking it with me to the movie yet.:D I'm pretty sure I'm not going on a killing spree, but I can't promise I won't.:nervous:

    Dammit I might have to wait until Sun. now :(. All of a sudden none of my friends can make it, and by the time me and the wife get up there (We are both working late) it will surely be sold out, or there will be no decent seats left. I will definitely try though, but it's not looking too promising. And I think seeing it on Valentine's Day probably isn't going to happen. This sucks as I have been so pumped for this, damn friends! The Friday the 13th curse has struck again!

    Saw the first showing in Leeds today 10.30am, wasnt full but there were a fair few in there which suprised me at that time. Think I will be going to see this again on Orange Wednesdays.

    Just got back and I enjoyed it. Started out a little campy but was fine after the body count started. pretty good with the jump scares. a couple i didn't see coming at all. I liked the look of jason. was fun to see him running around and showing at least a little bit of intellegence. nothing over the top tho.

    a small thing but i did like when he turned on the lights to search for the folks that were hiding in his yard, haha. not really a spoiler but just once i'd like to see the black guy survive tho, lol.

    i wasn't a huge fan of the ending...

    I realise they are just setting up for a sequel but why the hell would they toss the body back in the lake.

    I give it a solid 7/10. I will see it again and buy it on Blu-ray when released.

    I was thinking the same thing, esp. when he was inches away from the fucking chipper ending him (barring supernatual intervention of course). Then again, when it looked like he was going to go through the chipper, I was wondering how they planned to set up the next one.
    My only guess that would make any sense was they got enough or knew enough of Jason to feel the lake is where he belongs, and they were trying to be cool/give him a proper burial? I know, it's reaching.
