In a good turn of events for R-rated horror, Platinum Dunes’ reboot (the new, classier, way to say remake) of “>Friday the 13th has scared itself up some big box office this weekend, raking in an estimated 42 million, plus!
This bodes well for our genre. It truly does, but it’s also a bit of a double edged sword. What with Platinum Dunes’ A Nightmare of Elm Street officially on the horizon, I’m sure all the other studios are already scrambling to look for the next property they can cash-in on. Hopefully there will be some room left for original horror as well. We can only pray.
Say what you will about the new Friday, and, man, do I have a lot to say (you’re going to have to wait on that), it’s good to see the man in the hockey mask ruling the weekend with an iron machete.
