Film Review
Production
This film is an appalling addition to the horror genre. It spends an incredible amount of time on a storyline that is boring and predictable and even less time giving meaning to why Jason kills any of the characters. It goes against the standard horror movie format and by doing so delivers nothing to the audience that is entertaining, scary, or new. It instead offers an absurd plot and acting that goes beyond bad, even for a horror movie.
Scary Factor
To even consider this film as being scary is impossible. The timing of the murder sequences is completely off with the music, a key ingredient in mounting anticipation and fear in the audience. The scenes where you should have jumped out of your seat give you a little, if any, jolt. This is mostly due anyways to the shear shock you feel after having been half asleep while the plot painstakingly progressed. As for the actual murder sequences...lifeless.
