Caution: Spoilers Contained in Videos!

You can watch over 15 minutes worth of behind-the-scenes footage, which I spit into three parts, from the new Friday the 13th reboot, which arrives in theaters on February 13th. The footage contains all sorts unseen material from scenes in the film, which brings Jason Voorhees back to Camp Crystal Lake. Just be warned there are tons of spoilers within the clips. The story follows a group of young adults that find themselves going toe-to-toe with the infamous Jason Voorhees (Derek Mears) at a cabin near Camp Crystal Lake. I inserted a Friday soundtrack to add more atmosphere to what would just be ordinary boring behind the scenes footage. Enjoy!!

The end product is satisfying and occasionally great, but there are some blunders that keep it from being the "ultimate Jason" movie that it could have easily been with another pass or two at the script.

FRIDAY THE 13TH - My biggest gripe, I think- even beyond the horrible characters populating this film, beyond the women as blow-up dolls, the guys as jerks- came at the end. I understand suspension of disbelief. I understand the "need" for Jason to pop up out of the water at the end. Though I try, however, I simply can't wrap my head around how they achieved that end. Upon enduring this horrible night, upon watching everyone get slaughtered, upon escaping Jason's lair after being held captive for a month, Whitney and Clay are going to loose the tangled chains around Jason's neck, freeing his mangled body from a woodchipper...then they're going to haul his 200+ body all the way to the lake just to dump him in? This guy- he's just a guy, after all, who killed all those people? They're going to go through all this trouble and destroy the evidence? No...no, they're not. People don't do that. Yes, people do stupid things in horror movies all the time- splitting up, investigating noises, etc- but sometimes, screenwriters need to stop and say "You, know, this is a bit much..." and figure out ways to make the characters' stupidity seem plausible. Even in its own shallow, ridiculous universe, the film has to make sense.

Am I being too hard on it? Maybe. It's just a slasher movie, after all, right? It's Friday the 13th. Jason gets his mask, he kills people. That's what folks want, mission accomplished.
