I don't get why Jason rounded up all the corpses. It didn't make sense, because in the rest of the franchise there were always screaming bigtitty women stumbling upon grisly scenes he left lying around.

What did he do with them, anyway? Eat them?

He gathered them in part 2 didn't he?

And I didn't think it tried to be a 'serious' horror movie at all, unlike Rob Zombies abomination of a remake of Halloween the new Friday the 13th was pretty much campy as hell. It did have a different sort of cinematography which gave it a sort of gritty TCM-remake visual quality, but the teenage victim/hero characters were suitably stock-y, and the action was suitably predictable to fit in to the basic Friday the 13th camp legacy.

Really though I went into this movie just hoping that it wouldn't be like the Halloween remake which was so horrificly bad, so the fact that it didn't make the same mistakes Rob Zombie made means I thought it was a decent enough endeavour. And by mistakes I mean trying to make the killer more psychologically realistic, which the Friday remake didn't attempt, or changing the basic roles of the teen victim types. I don't mean to go off on an unrelated rant here (actually I do) but Laurie Strode in the Halloween remake was just so fucking unbearable and useless and pointless that it made me want to stab myself in the eye. In the Friday remake you had a bunch of stupid characters that made stupid little jokes and were generally just a campy crew of stock teenage characters that were in my opinion very similar to the characters from the original series.

I didn't remember him gathering them in part 2, but that was the one with the excellent Machete wheelchair-kill, wasn't it?

I was in a wheelchair for a while as a kid and that shit really bothered me. I remember having nightmares after watching some made-for-tv movie about the Achille Lauro where they killed that guy in the wheelchair and pushed him overboard.

I still say Jason Takes Manhattan was the all-around best Friday the 13th movie.

Ya, I'm inclined to love part 8 as well. Maybe I'm wrong about him gathering the corpses in part 2, but I thought he brought a bunch to the cabin where he kept his moms head. Maybe I'm mixing it up with Sleepaway Camp 2.

Part 4 or part 6 were the best.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure he didn't gather bodies in any of em. Half of the "scares" came from the stupid teens stumbling upon their dead friends, like Kitsa said. There was a few times where he'd kinda set them up to fall down and scare their friends or whatever, but that's about it. He never dragged them off to his cabin. They did end up in his cabin in part 2, but IIRC, it was just Jason, blonde heroine, and blonde bf of heroine.

He might have gathered them in part 5. The one with the twist ending. Then it really doesn't fit the motif because of the twist ending and all. I remember there being a bunch of bodies shoved in a bunkbed.

I honestly have no idea what you naysayers want from a horror movie if you didn't like this movie. It wasn't perfect but it was enjoyable and I didn't feel it was taking the story very seriously at all.

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

I think it's part six, where Horshack and Tommy Jarvis try and rekill Jason in a graveyard in the beginning of the movie. Except when you multiply a negative by a negative you get a positive. When you try and KILL someone who is already DEAD they have no choice but to become ALIVE again.
