->''Welcome to Crystal Lake.''

Like many horror stables before it, ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' got [[ContinuityReboot rebooted]]. This film carries no subtitle or numerical marker as a result, but -- provided one accepts ''Film/FreddyVsJason'' as a part of the franchise -- this marks the twelfth film in the series.

While the film retains the same general origin as the original film, this film takes place in the 2000s and features a more intelligent Jason -- one who lays traps and stalks his victims instead of reaching for the nearest blunt object -- going up against a group of teens who've decided to spend their summer vacation at a lavish house situated near Crystal Lake.

A planned sequel to this film currently sits in DevelopmentHell.
-----
!! ''Friday the 13th'' (2009) contains examples of the following tropes:

* AgonyOfTheFeet: Jason stabs Mike's foot through the floor when they're checking his cabin. His [[ImpaledPalm palm]] soon follows.
* AnAxeToGrind: [[spoiler: 'rence]] gets one planted in his back.
* AssholeVictim: Trent.
* BearTrap: Richie gets caught on bear trap set by Jason. Later on Whitney uses a bear trap against Jason during the final confrontation.
* BloodIsSquickerInWater: Jason leaves Lawrence's body into a pool, which dyes it red.
* BroadStrokes: The events of the original film happened, but [[spoiler:Pamela Voorhees']] killing spree happened shortly after Jason's "death", rather than twenty years later.
* BuxomIsBetter: Trent can't stop talking about how perfect Bree's breasts are during their sex scene.
-->'''Trent:''' Your tits are stupendous.
-->'''Bree:''' [[SarcasmMode Wow, you really know how to make a girl feel special.]]
* CrazySurvivalist: This Jason being mortal (maybe), and thus more firmly rooted in reality, he's been living alone out in the woods near Camp Crystal Lake for well over two decades. It shows, as he is an expert with traps, a crack shot with a bow and arrow and in general acts more like a stalking predator than the classic ImplacableMan he is in other films. [[spoiler: He has also managed to create a well-stocked underground lair with a tunnel network that runs all throughout the area.]]
* CargoEnvy: Chewey wishes he could "die and come back as one of the little buttons on the ass pocket" of Bree's jean shorts.
* ClothesMakeTheLegend: Jason has got cloth wrapped around his face until he kills his first on screen victim (after the prologue) where he picks up the iconic hockey mask and looks at himself in the mirror.
* CompressedAdaptation: Elements from the first four films are featured.
* DangerousWindows: Jason grabs Clay through a window.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Lawrence is about to have one when he is interrupted by Jenna and Clay.
* DeathByPragmatism: Subverted with [[spoiler:Clay]].
* DeathBySex: Exaggerated. Every character who has sex, or wants to have sex, or fantasizes about having sex, or is a creepy redneck who has sex with mannequins gets killed.
* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Fake FinalGirl Jenna.]]
** [[spoiler:The film even tosses out a Decoy Cast -- almost everyone in the first group of teens shown in the film ends up killed, and the real story picks up six weeks after Jason's attack]].
* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: The prologue.
* EarAche: Richie finds Wade's corpse after finding his severed ear.
* EverythingIsRacist: Lawrence -- the lone black person of the film -- invokes this twice. The first time was in order to get out of pumping gas, and the second time was for joking around (he talks about making a music label to Chelsea, who automatically think it'll be for rap. Lawrence takes offense to this and says Oh, because Im black, I cant listen to Green Day? Chelsea then apologizes and asks what kind of genre Lawrence is going to do, [[HypocriticalHumor to which he smiles and says that he actually is going to do rap.]])
* FinalGirl: The girl in the opening, later [[spoiler:Whitney]], but at the end the only one left standing is apparently [[spoiler:Clay]].
* GhostStory: Wade relates the tale of Camp Crystal Lake around the campfire.
* GiveMyRegardsInTheNextWorld: "Jason! Say hi to mommy - in hell!"
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Jason is defeated with [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas the fact he loves his mother]] and by his own machete. Whitney knows this and uses it to defeat him.
* HomePornMovie: Bree lures Trent into the bedroom of the cabin they're staying at, strips both of them down, rides on top of him in a perfect cowgirl position, and video tapes him for much of their intercourse... all the way Jason begins his killing spree, and at one point, Jenna (Trent's girlfriend) bangs on the door to warn them, but Trent assumes she and the others are just messing with them.
* {{Jerkass}}: '''Trent.'''
* ImpromptuTracheotomy: Chewie gets a screwdriver into his throat.
* ImprovisedArmour: When Lawrence goes out looking for Chewie, he picks up a pan to be his shield.
* LogoJoke: The logos at the start appear bathed in blood red.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler: Trent]] ends up being impaled on [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVANewBeginning harvester equipment]].
* NiceGirl: Jenna. She's sympathetic to the disappearance of Clay's sister, stands up to Trent when he acts like a {{Jerkass}}, and genuinely worries about the others when Jason starts his killing spree.
* NotQuiteDead: Jason in the ending, as usual.
* OffWithHisHead: Mrs. Voorhees gets decapitated in the opening, natch. And Donnie gets his head decapitated too in alternative scene of his death scene.
* PoliceAreUseless: The only cop shows up, and gets killed under a minute flat.
* PoorMansPorn: The winter catalogue for Lawrence.
* ProlongedPrologue: The prologue is over ''twenty minutes''.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Whitney isn't dead, she's Jason's captive]].
* ShoutOut:
** There's an argument about [[Film/BlueVelvet Heineken and Pabst Blue Ribbon]].
** Bree's death (being inmpaled by a pair of antlers) is very reminiscent of ''Film/SilentNightDeadlyNight''.
* SlashedThroat: Donnie's death.
* TheStoner: Lawrence and Chewie.
* TaxidermyTerror: Lawrence tries to masturbate in the living room, but finds himself too creeped out by a big stuffed deer head with glass eyes staring right at him to go through with it.
* TokenMinority: Two. A black dude, Lawrence, and an Asian dude, Chewie.
* [[spoiler: TunnelNetwork: One is under Camp Crystal Lake, acting as Jason's hideout.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: While running away from Jason, Trent comes across a truck, whose driver is willing to pick him up. Trent then starts doubting the driver's friendliness, which gives enough time for Jason to catch up to him.
