Where could they have picked up from that would have satisfied you? Continuing Jason X on Earth 2? Emerging from the water after Freddy vs Jason? Starting off in Hell after Jason Goes to Hell? The continuity of this series was pretty much a clusterfuck. A reboot/remake/relaunch was really the only way to go. Yeah, heaven forbid somebody should actually want to make money. I mean, it's not like the originals were cheap rip offs themselves. How dare they sully the name of such a prestigious franchise.
