Brief Synopsis:
The present day date is moved back by two years to set the film on a real Friday the 13th.
There are many cuts made to alter the timeline, remove filler, tighten the editing & improve the overall ambiance.
I've also made many cuts & alterations in order to make the characters more likeable.
I've used parts of the classic Harry Manfredini score from the original 1980 film to help make this one feel like a classic Friday the 13th.
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 Ken Blackwell'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.

Ray does a good improvement in this one, trimming the most unnecessary moments/dialogue from the other characters besides Clay and Trent's girlfriend, personally I still prefer the original soundtrack from this movie, I liked what you tried to do with the 80s soundtrack, but sometimes it felt out of the place, I think it would have worked better only with the opening, a nice tribute to the first movie, I also would have liked to see Jason coming back from the dead at the end, for me it's a cool ending that proves that he's an unstoppable supernatural force, apart from that is a good FanFix that takes the theatrical/killer cut and tries to bring the best of these 2, totally recommended to those fans who wanted a more fast-paced movie and see more from our favorite hockey mask killer.
