Making the Grades

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Synopsis: In this updated version of the classic horror film, a group of young adults stumble upon more excitement than they counted on when in a deserted campground where they accidentally attract the deadly attention of Jason Voorhees (Derek Mears).

Director: Marcus Nispel

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Amanda Righetti, Derek Mears

Content Information:

This additional information about the movie’s content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:


- Frequent prolonged portrayals of graphic violence, including stabbing, throat slitting and impaling.

- Detailed gory and grotesque images and frequent upsetting or disturbing scenes.

- Depictions of mutilated and dismembered corpses.

Sexual Content:

- Sexual references.

- Several scenes of breast nudity in non-sexual contexts.

- Sexually suggestive scenes involving fondling and nudity.

- Depiction of simulated sexual activity.

Of Special Note:

If watching someone running for his life sounds like an evening of entertainment to you (but you’d prefer a few less graphic depictions), then look for the sci-fi thriller The Arrival.
