Second rate to beginwith, the exhaustedFriday the 13th franchisehas been resurrectedin the most witlesslyformulaic fashion, evenby slasher-moviestandards. Suffice it tosay that some vacuous,interchangeable studentsgo to stay in a house inthe woods, where thewomen obligingly taketheir tops off before amasked serial killer calledJason takes their headsoff. You needn't feel sorryfor them, though. Thecharacters' IQs go upwhen they're decapitated.
