    Kane Hodder

    by Series7

    Oh yeah he is the guy who struts around with Robert Englund and Tony Todd. Cashing in on there characters to show up in every B-moive horror movie known to man. Wait Kane Hodder has moved on Artistically to become the screaming phsyco (instead of the quiet phsyco) of the Harry masterbation fest, Hatchet.

  • March 21, 2008, 9:03 a.m. CST

    Seriously fuck this

    by Series7

    Fuck Hatchet, give me more Feast. That movie was awesome and not a total rip off of something better. Also I feel that out of Todd, Hodder and Englund, Robert is the only one who deserves the most cameos in a lifetime award. A) Because he probably does have twice as mainy as the other 2 because well he is a creepier looking dude and funnier. B) He was Freddy, Hodder wasn't all of the Jasons and Candyman wasn't big enough to give a shit. Freddy is by far the coolest horror character ever. Because he's the phsyco killer with one-liners.

    by Series7

    This remake and the Nightmare on Elm Street re-make is that there would be the SLIGHT SLIGHT hope that some cool movie theaters will have a marathon of all the old movies leading up to the new one. Which all and all will probably make the new ones look worse but it would still be fun. Too bad movie theaters now a days are too worried about getting in the maximum number of screenings of Alvein and the Chipmunks and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale to make going to the movies fun. MAN i fucking pass an old theater thats been closed down and is for sale every day, EVERY DAMN DAY! It used to be a dollar theater, but has since closed down and its for sale for what I've heard around 1 million dollars (LIKE Dr. EVIL!). Every time I drive by that place I think of all the cool and fun things I could do with it and how i would run it. It probably shut down because there is another theater like less then a mile away and then a much newer bigger theater less then 5 minutes up the road. Who wants to go in and invest in this place? i got around 30 thousand I can throw down already.

    by password.swordfish

    Serious, usually I'm up in arms about the remaking of classic horror movies, but I just don't care about this one. Go ahead. Maybe cause the original series was so uninspired and unimaginative. I guess I don't think the movie they make now will be drastically worse, and there's even the chance on improving the original. OK, I'm going to get slammed for that. I never found the originals to be remotely scary, just good gore for the time.

    Again I say....the originals were not that great!

    by Reel American Hero

    In fact they were pretty shitty even. They're more entertaining in an MST3K style way then viewing them as actual horror. So, I sincerely doubt anyone, including Michael Bay could fuck up Jason worse then the films have already portrayed him. He's an iconic character yes, the look is pretty badass, but that is it. The originals were not some nigh untouchable holy grail of horror films. There are plenty of better movies out there. If anything they can only make it better, cause it couldn't get any worse. Now, remaking Nightmare On Elm Street is just blasphemy mind you, at least the first one, and the third one were damn near just awesome. The rest aren't as great, but they're still a million times better than anything thus far in the Friday the 13th series.

    by Vern

    True, except Michael Bay can and in fact will definitely ruin the fun of those movies. So far Platinum Dunes movies have not been good but they have also not been stupid fun. They're more about nihilism and TV commercial style fetishistic gazing at dirty sweaty skin and sunsets than about the surge of adrenaline an audience should get from watching the protagonist try to get away.<p> The originals are mostly bad movies but they have a simplicity and rawness to them that makes them fun. It should be way easier to remake than Texas Chain Saw, but these guys couldn't remake Baby Geniuses without making you think "You know, in retrospect the original had a certain charm to it that is missing here." Note that they chose the same director and even location as their crappy Chain Saw remake. Crystal Lake is in Texas now? I hope they have cowboy hats and fake accents like Jessica Biel in Chain Saw.

    by thegreatwhatzit

    Perfect casting and she'll be available in a just a few months. I'm not excited about this latest addendum to a tired, moronic cash cow; all of the sequels to the 1980 movie we're basically remakes of the first FRIDAY--I mean, what's the point? JASON X was a pathetic piece of shit (never mind the lousy acting, script, editing, direction, et al--the film's only real hotty functioned as the first victim!). But it also had the best scene in the entire series (promiscuous/intoxicated bimbos trying to beckon Jason into the digital Camp Crystal; very funny and probably developed by an outside influence).

  • March 21, 2008, 12:49 p.m. CST

    Neosamurai85,right as usual.

    by liljuniorbrown

    That was one of the better sequels. As far as Supernatural goes I hope and pray that CW dosn't fuck it over like they did Angel. That show along with Reaper (and Smallville which is getting better) is the only reason I watch that Godforsaken network. Both of the leads in that series are great and who ever is writting is my new favorite of all times. They just get the whole brother dynamic down pat,the conversations and nonsappy closeness....I'm just a big ass geek for that show right now.

    Hollywood remake madness

    by nightmute

    I'm not remotely interested in this particular remake, but it does once again raise the issue of the serious lack of risk-taking in what should be--and certainly what once was--a creative industry. Of course, with so much money on the line, it's understandable that studios want to reduce the risk as much as possible by sticking with tried and tested brand name projects, but they do seem to be missing a trick. The films that make it big, and even sometimes become classics, tend be fairly original. The reason for this is that audiences do in fact appreciate fresh stories. There really is an appetite for it out here, not just among the die-hard fans but among audiences in general. Spielberg did not become a legend because he reheated somebody else's product. If we are to blame anybody for this remake insanity, then it must be Dino D. for producing a needless, money-grabbing adaptation of Red Dragon, already brilliantly adapted by Michael Mann not so long before as Manhunter. Mann's film was only just beginning to be recognized as a superior thriller--certainly superior to Silence in its depiction of Lecter--when Dino decided to cash in. Suddenly, it was no longer considered sacrilege in the business to remake recognized classics. When they did The Omen over, well, hell, nothing was safe. As I said, I'm not interested in a Friday remake, and I'm no fan of the original's rather shoddy effort to leap on the slasher bandwagon of the time, but nevertheless I will defend it, because it really doesn't need to be remade, does it?

Colm Feore was in two episodes actually, I only knew of one, but I just checked IMDB and they have him down for two there.<p> Not only are you right about Chiller, but you're spot on about his Linoge...."Born in sin, come on in...." gives me chills still.

    Goddamnit.

    by SebastianHaff

    What the fuck is with Platinum Dunes and explaining every single mundane detail about classic movies? Let's investigate Leatherface's background, in two flicks, the Amityville background, and now we're investigating what happened 'up at Crystal Lake?' ENOUGH! Just tell me a fucking story, I don't need all this goddamn background info.

    They really can't fuck up this series if you think about it.....

    by crackerfarmboy

    I mean, it's not like it was a work of art up to this point anyways. Sure Part 4 is a classic horror film but beyond that the series is pretty weak, no?

    THE THING remake is on AMC

    by thegreatwhatzit

    I was impassioned with this film when it was originally released. Then I got lukewarm. And now I think it kicks ass. Oh, how beastly, what were we talking about?

    F13 isn't sacred, but this remake will suck

    by fastcars

    I am a huge F13 fan; the gore, the sketchy acting, the loosey goosey continuity. They have a certain charm. But I will NOT be seeing this remake in theaters, or paying for it in any form. It will likely be a mediocore yawnfest; too bad to be good, too good to be bad, too disconnected from the previous films for me to care about it in any way. But hey, the teenyboppers will shell out enough money for it to make a marginal profit, and that's all that matters, right?

    I'm surprised he's not playing the role of Jason

    by Yeti

    The man is HUGE. 6"4" or 6"5". Wonder if his accent will become more pronounced while filming too as he's a Texas boy after all.

    Fastcars has it exactly right

    by Vern

    Most of the series is not "good" by normal snob standards, but it is fun, and alot of what is so "bad" about it is what makes it fun. The Platinum Dunes movies so far are terrible movies but to me not in a funny or enjoyable way, just in a frustrating and depressing way. <p> But also, I don't know if anybody else has brought this up before: what about Sean Cunningham's decades long dream of making 13 movies? He made it all the way up to ten (11 if you count FREDDY VS. JASON, which you probaly shouldn't since it's more of an ELM STREET format) and you fucks are gonna stop him in his tracks? Even if you count this as #11 or #12 it's still likely to prevent it ever from happening since they use the hit and run approach of just making a quick buck on the opening weekend by using a recognizable title and then that's the end of that forever because nobody wants to watch that shit again.

    You gotta wonder what would have happened

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    If the people who made F13 part 2 had not done it. If I recall correctly this was some company/group whatever made their movie by stealing the Jason and Camp Crystal lake concept from the guys who did the first one. Then, they got sued for it. That's what I heard anyway. Now, if that's true, and the guys who made the first one stopped there at number one, where would we be?

    It doesn't make me a snob that I think the movies are lame. I like to be scared by horror movies - F13 movies didn't care about scary. They cared about gore and nudity. Hey, that can be fun too, and like I said before, I've seen them all (did them all in a week once, cause I liked to see the connection between the how he "died" and then would come back in the next). But they're hardly sacred cows. I'm no supporter of Platinum Dunes, I'd be as happy as anyone if they went under today. I just don't think of this the same way I think of the Nightmare or Rosemary's Baby remakes. To me, no big deal. Even if they do wreck it (shrug).

  • March 22, 2008, 12:20 p.m. CST

    For example...

    by password.swordfish

    I saw both the first Nightmare and the 3rd Friday when I was six, thanks to a friend's older sister. I was WRECKED by Nightmare - couldn't sleep well for about a month. Even at six, Friday didn't affect me that much. Just too blah.

  • March 22, 2008, 12:20 p.m. CST

    Is this confirmed? Seems bogus.

    by Mr. Profit

    Because the casting breakdown that went out before didn't talk about an investigation. U sure some overweight Supernatural fangirl didn't break this news. Jason was supposed to be on Supernatural this season and it fell through. So I'm skeptical that this is legit.

    Scary Movies are no longer scary and they can't really be for us

    by ThePilgrim

    Anymore!!! Once your nearing your 30's or 40's thats it!!! Nothing can compare too CNN and your own mortality! <P> If you trying to make Friday Scary, your a fool!!! Just make it fun... Add some pretty Tits, and some lovable Losers who want to grab those tits. Inject some potty humor, add Drugs and kill them all off in real cool creative ways.. I want the Chud.com leaked Opening Pothead Slaughterfest (Going down in winter with a iced over lake) It's quick to the point and it gives us the campfire Voorhees backstory explaining why Jason is. <P> Then the opening credits. After this We return to the camp. It's Summertime... and now we run with the "Rumored" IMDB plot involving a mixed group of kids comprised of retards, deformers, and psychically handicappers. They arrive via Bus to the camp ala Meatballs with another group of Camp Councilors- Who's raster is mainly cute ass barrrrrrrelllly Legal Teens- with big ass's and big tits. <P> Our Handicapped R-Tards bond, they all make a big money bet one who will be the first to get some sweet action from one of the hot camp councilors. <P> The game is set into play, One night one of the Tards notices one of the hot female camp councilors sneaking off into the woods with another male councilor. Our Tard runs to the the cabins and wakes the other Tards, and they all sneak out into the woods to peeptom the fuckfest. Jason shows up he kills the councilors screwing, and then he goes after our Tarded kids. <P> He kills two of our loveable R-Tards. <P> The other R-Tards manage too escape back to camp. <P> They run into the Recreation room and tell all the Councilors what happened. No one believes them, but since two of the R-Tards are missing. They decide too look into it, Promising severe punishment if this is a joke. they take one of the R-tards with them and they go back out to the woods with flash lights.... The rest of the R-tards and Left at the camp with one Councilor. <P> You mean too tell me that you guys can't do it more like this and less like CSI/XFILES/BLAIR WITCH?

    by sonnyhooper

    ...makes you wonder why the show dosen't get much love on this site. i mean, it's pretty much like that "buffy vampire" show, except when you watch "supernatural" you don't have to question your sexuality.

    The Shield > Supernatural > any other tv show

    by Toby___Wong

    Jared Padalecki shouldn't do the Friday 13th movie. There was some talk about Jason appearing in Supernatural, but somehow it fell through. I still keep my fingers crossed that eventually Jason will appear in Supernatural and that should be awesome beyond awesome.

    Hottest Naked Chick in the series...

    by thegreatwhatzit

    Kirsten Baker (GAS PUMP GIRLS), performing the "skinny dip" scene in FRIDAY/13TH, PART 2. Perhaps the most memorable scene in the series. A resistance to the FRIDAY franchise prompts snobbery? What an asshole. Face it: they're lousy movies, the scripts are beneath contempt (they make Ed Wood look comparatively like Joseph L. Mankiewicz). As for JASON X, exempting the showdown between Jason and the bimbos at a digitized Crystal Lake, it looked like a home movie produced by the team that pasted together the KENAN & KEL series. And I have no doubt the (admittedly funny) Crystal Lake scene was pitched by an outsider--in fact, it's way too good for this 'ole chesnut of a series.
