BIQ Guide To Remakes: Friday The 13th

Original: 1980
Remake: 2009
Best Version: Original

As Kevin Williamson famously reminded us in Scream, Jason Vorhees is not the killer in the original Friday The 13th. But, of course, thanks to the plethora of Friday sequels, Jason is synonymous with Friday the 13th. So, the film-makers responsible for the remake set about rejigging the origin story in order to make Friday The 13th about Jason. This idea has merit, but the result is really just another preposterous Jason slasher that lacked the suspense and thrills of the original.
