Guess what, some teenagers rent a cabin at Crystal Lake and Jason isn't happy about the visitors. It's certainly typical of the series, only we have some celebs (Feldman and Crispin Glover to be exact) and this one is probably the most dull of the lot unfortunately. We meet a young family who live in a house near Camp Crystal Lake (of course). They have a teenage daughter, and a young son (Feldman). They learn some kids are renting a nearby cabin so Trish (their daughter) starts becoming friendly with the kids. What nobody seems to know is that Jason is about and cranky and bumping them off one by one. The deaths are mainly in the dark and cutaways making this feel even lazier than usual. Also the bit with the kid is well not my thing (although he ultimately is responsible for tricking Jason). Probably the weakest in the series, yet still watchable, just maybe with a bit of coffee is all.
