Friday the 13th
Jason Voorhees is a household name, there’s no arguing.

Some interesting tidbits coming out of Twitterland this morning concerning Platinum Dunes and their future with our beloved Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. Nothing too surprising but the source is pretty air-tight.
Can it be that the celluloid gods have heard my embittered pleas and taken action? Is it true that Platinum Dunes has left the Friday the 13th franchise behind after one shockingly awful entry that missed the point entirely? Right now all signs are pointing to 'yes'.
