First Image from Friday The 13th!

Producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form!The official Platinum Dunes website got an update today with the very first picture from the set of Friday the 13th. Before getting too excited, only producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form appear in the pic. There’s no Jason for you … yet.

For those who want to know more about what we can expect as far as Voorhees goes, Brad Fuller had this to say, “In this movie you will see a feral, brutal Jason who is hell-bent on killing in astonishing ways. And tonight our director, Marcus Nispel, constructed a shot of Jason as he is about to strike that is when I got scared. The shot is iconic in its construction. It’s our Batman or Spiderman shot and when you see the movie you will know exactly what I am talking about. It is the single shot that tells you everything you need to know about Jason.

Marcus Nispel is set to direct this new entry to the series with a script written by Freddy vs. Jason scribes Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Expect to see Jason chopping up the kids next year!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    Hopefully, the writers watched “Hatchet” if they want to “honor” the ending of the original.

    “My Violent Heart” will play when Jason tears out a character’s heart.

  • Kryten Syxx

    “Head Like a Hole” will play when Jason gets impaled on a pole.

    Which Nine Inch Nails song will be used in this film?

  • Kryten Syxx

    There’s no doubt in my mind that this film will end with the “last girl” cliche ad she’ll probably be on a small boat as a rip-off err… I mean homage to the original. More than likely in the last second of the film Jason will spring out of nowhere and the screen cuts to black as she screams.

    What could make that even better? If Voorhees leaps out from under a very small tarp that’s in the same boat as our “knew she was gonna make it” heroine. He manages to do this without rocking the boat or drawing the attention of his prey.

    Jason then our beautiful lead through the back with an electric drill that he somehow manages to power via a giant extension cord!

    A feral Jason? He snarls now?

    “Hey, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret.”
    “What’s that?”
    “…I’m actually Jason.”
    “No shit?! Well, guess what…I’m Jason too!”
    “Wow, small world, huh?”
    “It sure is. It sure is.”
