What a wild ride this one is. In between the ill-conceived but imaginative twist ending, over-the-top gore, excessive body count, and the cartoonish characters, it doesn’t exactly feel like a “Friday the 13th” movie. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, as this series has demonstrated a willingness to mess with its own formula. Here however, it’s a complete disaster: The climactic reveal is underwhelming, the acting is downright atrocious and there’s just about no tone or musical score to speak of. Overall the movie feels like a series of scenes indiscriminately stitched together by an indifferent director, but like so many failed movies it can be fascinating to watch.
Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
