It actually starts out rather innocently, with a group of youngsters partying next to a haunted house that's said to never release anybody who has gone in ... but of course, one of the group goes in anyhow - and is found bizarrely hanged.

One of the youngsters, Allison (Lisa May), decides to investigate on her own, and she soon links a bunch of missing kids to the death of her friend - but she also finds out about some Satanic cult, and that it might have been no accident that they were partying just there but that one of the group, bad boy Joshua (Jose Zuniga), had somehow arranged this. Problem is, some of her friends are also in on this, and when she tries to confront them, she ends up in a cave that turns out to be a gate to Hell with some half-human creatures out to get her - but she's saved by Erin (Deanna Grace Congo) in the last minute. Obviously she had been part of the cult but noticed they're up against something bigger. As is the case with the other cult members, who soon find themselves on the run from a ghost woman (Viviana Ozuna) and/or die mysterious deaths. And this of course doesn't help at all in calming Allison down ...

 

The 13th Friday might be a bit on the slow-burn side when it comes to freak its audience out - but exactly that's what makes it so effective: Sure, the film has its jump scares, but what really carries it is its suspense, created by a complex mystery that's really more the foundation for the film's creepiness than just a vehicle for some shock scenes, and that loses none of its drive by the fact that it lacks a proper resolution. Now add to that a very atmospheric directorial effort and a cast more than able to carry the sentiments of the movie and transmit them to the audience, and you've got yourself a very solid chiller indeed!
