Halloween Movie Blog #29 Friday the 13th Blog Part IV

Ok I didn't really need a full blog about this one but I really wanted to do the roman numeral IV for the blog in the spirit of the series so here it is the last of my Friday the 13th Blog posts! Today we cover the attempted reboot at the series done in 2009.
We have been here before...horney teens...kid drowns in lake...kid becomes horney teen killing machinee...etc. This time we have Jason himself right up front in the first film. New film new effects continued horror same old stuff new coat of paint.
The first two movies in the original series were the best of the best and unfortunately we are not finding this here. The reboot was sadly lacking and didn't differentiate itself that much from the other movies in the series. You have a few modern jump scares and the effects budget is clearly better but in the end it is the same old horney teen killing psycho relegating this film to be just another crappy sequel to an otherwise iconic series.

So Goodbye Jason! I am keeping our farewell as brief but we may return if you are going to have yet another reboot idea...actually I have read that they are planning a sequel to this in 2015 for those that are really psyched by this film. Farewell and good luck.
