Brief Synopsis:
Dates changed to keep continuity with the of the rest F13 [raymix] series timeline.
The new dates give Tina the time to age from 10 in her flashback to 18 in the present time. Both dates are real Friday the 13ths.
There are many cuts made to alter the timeline, remove filler, tighten the editing & improve the overall ambiance.
This project aims to bring stronger continuity, tighter editing & improved pacing to all 12 films in the Friday the 13th movie series.

Editing Details:
I tried to stay true to Maureen O'Connell, Martin Jay Sadoff & Barry Zetlin's editing style from the original film. I didn't want anything to seem changed or altered at all.
This mostly meant sharp, quick cutting & trying to keep the energy high.

I'm going to keep these reviews very brief as I'm reviewing numerous films in RayDanger's series -

First off, the Friday the 13th series is not top shelf cinema, but they are a fun set of films. RayDanger does a miraculous job of streamlining the entire series, providing a lovingly curated narrative that is more sensical that the ones that the original producers released.

It terms of visual tone, audio, and overall editing, the experience is greatly improved with greater emphasis on suspense throughout.

This is a tricky edit to review because the original theatrical cut was plagued by issues that unfortunately can't be overcome. Many of the original effects scenes were gutted by the ratings board, and that footage is lost. RayDanger does improve the film's pace, but this installment isn't as propped up by the gore that the series is known for, or by memorable characters. I will commend this edit for cutting the end altogether, leaving the film with a more emotionally appropriate end.
