One month after the disappearance of his sister, and after the police have had no luck in turning up clues, a man (Jared Padalecki) takes the investigation in his own hands and ventures to Crystal Lake where his sister was last seen. While there he uncovers a disturbing history in the broken down and long abandoned cabins in the woods. Also with Julianna Guill, America Olivo, Amanda Righetti, Danielle Panabaker, Jonathan Sadowski, Travis Van Winkle, Aaron Yoo and Derek Mears. Directed by Marcus Nispel. [1:35]

SEX/NUDITY 9 - A woman climbs on top of a man lying in bed, she removes her top (her bare breasts are seen), the man caresses her, they kiss, and she is seen thrusting on him later and her bare breasts, buttocks, abdomen and back are shown; she videotapes their encounter, they moan and climax.
 A man and a woman have sex: we see the man's bare chest and he thrusts from behind, they moan, we see her bare breasts, and they are interrupted by noises outside. A woman unbuttons her top to reveal her bra while a man watches, she then removes her bra revealing bare breasts and rubs oil on her chest and breasts; the man picks the woman up and takes her to a tent.
 A woman water-skis topless and bare breasts are seen. A woman who has been stabbed through the head by a machete is lifted out of water and her bare breasts are seen. Women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage in many scenes.
 A man looks at a pornographic magazine and we see a fully nude woman with bare breasts and pubic area completely visible; the man licks the page where the woman's pubic region is represented and talks to the page.
 A man looks at a clothing catalog and prepares to masturbate by unfastening his pants (he is interrupted). A man pulls a tarp off a female mannequin, caresses the breasts and talks to it making references to losing his virginity to it. A man stands behind a woman and makes sexual thrusting movements, unbeknownst to her.
 A woman dances seductively while two men watch her (she is wearing short shorts and a short top that reveal cleavage, bare abdomen and back and bare legs) and talk about never being able to have sex with her.
 A man and a woman kiss. A man buys a box of condoms.
 A man asks another man and a woman where they are going, the man says, "to make out" and the other man tells him to "wear a condom." A man tells a woman to "have sex with your boyfriend" (meaning himself). A woman slaps her bare leg swatting away a mosquito and a man makes a sexual remark inviting her to do that again.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A machete is pushed up through the floor of a cabin and catches a man three times, once in the foot, once in the leg and once in the hand (we see the blade break the skin, we see blood and he screams and struggles).
 A man is stabbed through the chest by a machete and falls motionless, his head is pulled toward a spinning chipper blade and we see his head bobbing up and down and blood spurts.

 A man reaches through the wall of a tent, grabs a woman that's inside, and ties her inside a sleeping bag over a fire (we see her struggling to get free, we hear her screaming, we see the sleeping bag catch fire and the woman falls to the ground dead (we see her charred and smoldering body).
 A man throws an ax at another man who is running away, he is struck and falls onto a pile of logs, and he is lifted up and shoved hard onto his back -- driving the ax through his chest -- and we see blood and something sticking out of his chest (it could be an organ or a blood covered log). A man is stabbed through the back with a machete, then lifted up and pushed onto a pole that sticks off the back of a truck (we see blood and hear crunching); the truck speeds away and the man's feet drag on the road).
 A woman is stabbed through the back, she looks down at the blade sticking out of her abdomen (it is covered with blood), and she is pulled back and is dead. A man is shot through the head by an arrow (we see the arrow through his head and we see blood).

 A chain is wrapped around a man's neck, the chain is pulled by a spinning wood chipper, the man is lifted off the ground, he thrashes, he falls to the ground, and the chain keeps pulling him toward the blades.
 A man stabs another man with a fireplace poker through the eye and pins him to a door (we see the bloody eye). A man runs through dark woods and steps on a bear trap that closes on his leg (we see the skin break and see blood as he scrams and struggles to get free. A man grabs a woman from behind, covers her mouth with his hand, lifts her off the ground and slams her onto a pair of antlers hanging from the wall (she slumps over dead).
 A boat speeds out of control toward a woman who's in the water, the boat strikes the woman in the head, she thrashes and we see a large bloody wound on her head (she is still conscious but panicked). A man slams another man's head into the side of a bus a couple of times and the man lies motionless.
 A man goes to a dark shed to find another man, he finds drops of blood on the floor, he opens a chest freezer and a dead man covered with blood falls from the ceiling toward him. A bag with a dead, beheaded body is dropped near a man and a woman (we see the bloody stump at the neck of the body).
 A man is grabbed through a hole in the floor and pulled down to a lower level, we hear crunching and the man bleeds from the mouth as he disappears through the hole. A man stabs a man in the leg with a fireplace poker (we see blood). Two men fight, and one grabs the head of the other and pushes it toward the spinning blades of a wood chipper. A woman is grabbed by someone breaking through a pier. A man grabs a woman by the throat and holds her briefly.
 A man and a woman enter a seemingly abandoned and broken down cabin, they see decayed food and broken furniture, the man reaches into a hole in a wall and pulls out a decaying severed head.

A man finds the body of another man slumped against a tree and stained with blood, and the man runs away in a panic. We see a body sinking into water and blood spreading. The body of a woman is thrown from an upper floor of a house and crashes onto the windshield of a car. A man is scared and shoots a gun several times (no one is struck). A woman is panicked when she sees a man with a machete standing on a shore watching her.
 A fire starts in a tunnel. A large dog barks viciously and lunges at a door when a man knocks. A man runs through dark woods and onto a dark road and he is nearly struck by a truck. A woman is restrained in a dark, underground room and we see rats skittering nearby. A man searches for his missing sister.
 We hear a woman's voice saying, "Kill for mother." A woman says "I killed all the others" and "You let him drown."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
