Friday the 13th [2009]: another "bloody" attempt

On the 13th day of this 30 day blog challenge, I was really not sure which film I should talk about, then the number 13 struck a chord and now it seems so logical that I decided to write a review for Friday the 13th. 

The first Friday the 13th film, the original film was released in 1980. Since then, we have seen its sequels, remakes, character wars with another franchise and god knows what not. To start with, this is a better film than most of its predecessors, 11 it is, still not too good. If you are so keen to watch a film about killings and bloodshed, this is not a bad choice to make. There are certainly weirder films people watch in the name of blood and gore, then why not watch Friday the 13th.
Jason is still doing what he was doing back in 1980, killing people or say a group of people and then being killed and return impossibly to life making a way for another sequel. By far, Jason has went through a lot, drowned in water, being hit by ax, sliced by a machete in the shoulder, buried, resurrected, thrown to hell, researched, frozen, chained and thrown into the lake, but no matter what, Jason does return. 

Even after 12 films in the franchise, its IMDb rating is still crawling in between 4 and 6, its very clear, viewers have had enough . It's time Jason should hang his boots.
