"Vengeance" takes place roughly thirty years after the events of "Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI". The story begins with Elias Voorhees, Jason's father, returning to Crystal Lake and a string of grisly murders that soon follows his arrival. After hearing the news of the most recent killings Tommy Jarvis then goes missing, which leaves it up to his daughter Angelica Jarvis to rise to the challenge of not only finding her father, but also finding a way to destroy his old nemesis Jason Voorhees in the process. Armed with knowledge never previously known about Jason, Angelica may prove to be his greatest threat yet, which culminates in an epic showdown of Jarvis vs. Voorhees.
It's certainly Friday the 13th...and that's a good thing.
Just watch the film. If you are at all a fan of the Friday the 13th series, this film is certainly for you. It looks, sounds, and feels like it fits into the franchise perfectly. I am skeptical that this is really a fan film as I can almost guarantee you that later down the road, it's going to come out that there was something going on here because of all the stupid lawsuits with the franchise rights. At the end of the day, it's a solid. The whole Father/Son angle has not been used before in the franchise and this is nothing like what was connected between Jason and Mrs. Voorhees. This is actually a fresh coat of paint on a series that needed something new to breathe life into it. Needless to say, it's here. Good acting and well filmed, the people behind this should be proud. Hopefully we can get a physical media release of this. I've seen many of the fan films in this series and this one, hands down, is the best one yet and much better than that last "Reboot" that was put out by Platinum Dunes. I'm quite impressed and well entertained. You should see it.
