2009 / d. Marcus Nispel
Jason Voorhees returns to the silver screen, this time adding new tallies to his bodycount in slick, heavily polished, Hollywood style. Call me crazy, but I didn’t think this film was half bad. A few intentionally funny chuckles, and as pointless as remakes may be, I don’t mind Marcus Nispel as a director. Plus, the incredibly graphic and white-knuckle opening earned my respect.
