Follow the legend...beware the lake...run for your life! Jason Voorhees returns to the screen in a chilling and daring re-imagining of the classic horror film Friday the 13th. The new terror begins as a group of college students disappear on a thrill-seeking trip to the infamous Camp Crystal Lake, a long forgotten mass-murder site that now rests deep in the overgrowth of an unforgiving woods. Now Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki -- "Supernatural") must find his missing sister. Against the advice of the locals, who claim a "presence" still lives within the camp, he ventures deep into the merciless forest and comes face to face with the personification of evil, the unrelenting killer Jason Voorhees! "Did you know a young boy drowned here? He was my son. And today is his birthday."

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Though technically well-constructed, Friday the 13th is a series rehash that features little to distinguish it from its predecessors.

Horror remake isn't for anyone, let alone teens.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this slasher remake is a never-ending series of bloody, brutal, violent murders perpetrated by a mutilated sociopath. There are several explicit sex scenes, as well as scenes that mingle sexuality and violence -- like when a topless woman is knifed through the head with a machete. And as if all that weren't enough, characters swear nonstop, drink, and discuss and use drugs (particularly marijuana). The fact that all the pot-smoking characters wind up dead shouldn't be considered incisive social commentary, since those who don't partake wind up dead, too.
