are the marketing materials. Everything else sucks. How sad that the only advancement in film remakes is the advertisements.
July 27, 2008, 8:25 p.m. CST
Couldn't they have just made a really stylish sequel? I say this as this as someone who proudly owns every F13 movie on DVD, because they are campy fun, despite their flaws. This "remake" worries me, though. Origin stories have been done to death, and if Jason's consists of a) getting picked on as a kid and b) torturing animals, it will suck, hard. And the kills in this movie better not be on some gay Saw Hostel torture porn tip. That said, I do like the poster. I just can't think of one thing to come out of "Platinum Dunes" I've liked.

The remake is really a reset button. This is not about Jason as a kid or Jason being tormented. This is about making Jason, a) alive again (removing the zombie element introduced in "Jason Lives" and b) it's an attempt to make him relevant and scary again. It's really a remake of parts 1,2, and 3. And everything we've heard so far has been more than this series deserved. I grew up watching these movies, but I haven't enjoyed one since "New Blood". They have been terrible since 8 on. So I'm not against this. Especially since I heard Jason runs again, sets traps, and kills people in inventive ways. I'm down. And say what you will of Marcus Nispel, but he can make a good looking well paced slasher movie.

I may see it. Maybe, it'll be as good as the remake of "Dawn of the dead" was.
July 27, 2008, 9:08 p.m. CST
We've had a few decent one's but overall poster art really is in a rut right now. I too would dig a franchise reboot of sorts. There are just so many elements from the paramount films that I love, but they are scattered across 8 films and are rarely ever fully realized. Part 1 was classic and delivered all around. That Jason's shack and his mother's head in Part 2 were never addressed again pisses me off more than anything else in the series. 3 was pretty solid other than a few bits (like part 2) where the campyness leaked into crapyness. 4 deserves credit for introducing Tommy, but honestly I find it one of the least interesting to return to. I actually like five quite a bit despite the obvious plot problems and a couple raging bullshit moments during the final showdown (no human can take that much abuse, and after all the build up they drop the ball on Tommy vs. Jason showdown) it at least FEELS like a Friday the 13th film... other than it's unacceptable LACK OF LAKE. Six is a little too goofy and takes place too much in town. Okay, it a fun addition to the series, but honestly it's only those last 15 to 20 minutes that I love. Seven has the best Jason look and arguable the best actor for the role. It also makes an effort to be scary which is worth applauding. Kinda sad that such a silly premise actually makes for one of the best of the series. Part 8... um... yeah... Anyway, there was a lot in the first three films that could be condensed into one really solid film. However, I can't really see a reboot unless it comes with an attempt to do more than be campy. The original Friday the 13th wasn't just camp, it was a solid horror movie, and what bugs me about the sequels is they never fully got that. Part 2 could have been all things bigger and badder, but it wasn't and in realizing what could have been is the only reason they should bother. Sadly, I've yet to see anything that suggests they are doing that.

Oh god... the cave... THE FUCKING CAVE!!! Actually, I recall loving the hell out of that game. People make fun of it now, but seriously, if you were ten years old back in the 80s playing that thing... it was scary as hell. The music in those cabins was great in being simultaneously comforting and unnerving. You knew the bastard was going to pop out around the next corner... no... this corner... no... ... ... aw hell how do I get out of this damn cabin... no ... DAUGH DAUGH DAUGH! HOLY SHIT THERE HE IS! God that game made my swamp thing loving ass jump. It's frustratingly designed, sadistically hard (if you don't have all the tricks spelled out for you), but I love it.

July 27, 2008, 10:04 p.m. CST
well i'll just say i think i enjoyed the original f13s because i was a kid and too young to see naked women and go to camp and see gory killing sprees, yet these movies delivered just that. so to me this will just be some stupid slasher movie like the rest no matter how well made it is it won't make me smile like the old ones did.
July 27, 2008, 10:11 p.m. CST
say that it sucks? Its just like the other 9 that came before it but with a little more production value behind it. Not a lot of ways to fuck it up. Jason movies have never been about substance, just entertainment. Screw the teenagers story, just start with the killing.

July 27, 2008, 10:16 p.m. CST
In this reimagined property of Jason, a bulldog is picked on for his Marlon Brando facial similarities , and short stout N. Bonaparte like figure . He falls into a pool, While doing his regular skatboarding routine. The lifeguards pay no attention to this as they are downloading his stunts to youtube. With nobody there to save him, he drowns. Though on one obscure moonlit night-unrelated to Friday the 13th. He will get his revenge. Wearing a hockey mask, molded from his pudgy little cookie dough face. He begins to stalk and murder GnarlyBull777 and all of his subscribers, and all of their busty blonde girlfriends that will do anything for pot, ANYTHING! With a Hard R rating, prepare yourself for the biggest pile of mangled dead bodies forced into one sleeping bag, and every sporting good known to man used to peirce flesh , ever seen in the slasher cinema.

We'd have to sit through a minimum of two rape scenes. I think it's in his contract when he's a director.
July 27, 2008, 11 p.m. CST
Gotta admit, they're kinda boring. They don't hold up that well after almost 30 years, although I'm not exactly clamoring for a remake, mostly because the remake won't have the girls wearing tiny shorts and stripey knee-high athletic socks, which are still pretty sexy. The best thing about these movies were the tits and the gore, and I highly doubt that the MPAA will allow such things these days. Besides, I bet Bay will try for a PG-13. Isn't that what all the cool remakes of really hard "R" movies from the 80's are going for these days?
July 27, 2008, 11:03 p.m. CST
Please tell me this will be Rated R and they won't pussy out for a PG-13 like many of today's latest "horror" retreads.

I actually think I'm probably the absolute biggest FRIDAY THE 13TH fanatic on this entire website. <p> I have to say that they did the right thing with this teaser. The thing to remember about FRIDAY THE 13TH movies is that the posters looked exactly like this starting with 3 and going until around Part V - in other words, the "really fucking good trilogy" as I like to call it. Of course, nothing beats the "whole bloody saga" knife-in-eye that's become synonymous with kickass when it comes to Jason. <p> Anyway, I've put myself on a moritorium regarding this movie - I do NOT want to see more than the poster. I know a few facts about it but I have deliberately avoided plot points. <p> Anyway, I think I'm probably the biggest FRIDAY THE 13TH nut on here and it gets my A+.

Y'know, something with a pulp-ish hubris that evokes images of the 1950s (B-movie) posters: screaming chick losing her teeny-bikini top. The "mask" motif is predictable and too subdued. Shit, they could do a photoshop of Andy Dick as Tarzan (shudder) and this turkey would still clear $30 mill (but, remember, the stink-o HALLOWEEN remake was no boxoffice blockbuster).

Where's the next new Jason? Why are we satisfied with Jason/Freddy/Leatherface/MikeMyers? That's it? Four serial killers? Those four fucks cover the entire spectrum of landmark icon serial killers? No one can come up with a better iconic serial killer? We're stuck with those four forever? Whay happened? Why? Where's the new Jason? Or the new Freddy? Someone that can join the ranks of serial killer stardom? As long as I avoid dreaming, summer camps, Halloween and Texas, I should be safe? Is that how it is? Hannibal had his run, true, but in my opinion, somebody needs to create the next new Jason. Or are we so numb to this level of violence, this stuff isn't scary anymore? We need aliens and predators and terminators and to scare us. All my ranting aside, I'll probably see it.
July 28, 2008, 1:01 a.m. CST
His mom did all the killing in the first movie, he was the little boy jumping out of the water in the end dream sequence; and Jason didn't even get his hockey mask till the third film. So is this a complete re-imaging, re-telling of the beginning without mom?

Kind of a lesson about marketing here...what if someone did a first rate job of trying to sell something that didn't interest you in the slightest?<p> Answer: I'll admire the effort and they won't see a dime of my money. What the hell is "Friday The 13th" anyway? Some kind of a hockey movie? And this Jason fellow is the goalie? Sounds lame.

July 28, 2008, 6:26 a.m. CST
that this will be cool. Spymunk and The Guy Who Slept Through Everything, we may have to get into a pissing contest over who the biggest Friday freak is. I absolutley love the whole franchise, but it is obviously far from perfect. That being said, it's STILL my favorite horror franchise. I even saw Part 3 in 3-D in the theater at the tender age of 4! I won't rehash the whole series and go over my favorites vs. least faves, as that's been done to death on this and other Friday talkbacks. I will say that this remake looks to be employing some of the cooler shit from the first three films, including Jason's mom getting decapitated, Jason's cabin and mom shrine, the "sack head" Jason (BTW, my Halloween costume three years ago), and, if the Comic-Con trailer is any indication, a return to the AWESOME Harry Manfredini scores from the early films. I admit the poster looks pretty unoriginal, but it is just a teaser poster and it does recall the posters for 4-7. I'll forgive them if the follow-up poster kicks ass. As for what I've heard about the remake, Jason will be similar to John Rambo from First Blood in that he is a bad ass in defending his territory from outsiders and is smart and resourceful. I think this Jason could be pretty freakin' sweet. And, yeah, a sequel would have been cool too, but after 8-10, where they tried to think outside the box, I have little faith in them being able to get a fresh, original sequel right. I'll take my chances with this remake, despite the poor track record of these weak-ass horror remakes (TCM and maybe The Hills Have Eyes were the only decent ones of the bunch). Fingers crossed, hoping this will be good.
