Friday the 13th Teaser! Quick!

I seriously doubt this will be up long, so make sure you get your eyes on it now if you really want to see a crappy shot-at-Comic-Con version of the Friday the 13th remake trailer.
Personally I’m going to wait for Warner Bros. to release it properly and sexily before checking it out, but I’m sure I’m in the minority on that one. Dig!

    I don’t think it particularly matters how bad the series was in general, I think the bigger problem is that Jason has become a horror icon which in it’s essence is a product of it’s time. Unless the film makers can recapture that same essence today then the film is irrelevant. If this were or is an homage to that time period I can dig it but if it’s made for a new audience all together then I’ll skip it.

    gritty or shiny, running or crawling, remake or sequel, doesn’t really matter to me. if they at least TRY to make Jason an object of terror and mystery again, rather than the object of ridicule that he has become in some of the more recent entries, then I will be there opening night. This would have to be pretty awful indeed to be anything other than a step up.

  • Gus Bjork

    I like a running Jason, cruising up with his machete to wack that girl up into the cheap seats. I’ll bet a $100 bucks he somehow gets injured and turns into limping Jason about 2/3rds in. And like is said repeatedly it’s not like you can ruin Friday the 13th. It was a product to fill seats in a theater no matter how endeared. My only hope is they don’t do the dark, gritty and grainy thing.

  • MagusMaleficus

    Oh, come on now. All you dudes giving Platinum Dunes a BJ right now will be cutting off the very same dick by way of harsh reviews when this flick hits theaters–mark my fucking words.

    • Terminal

      I’ll put ten dollars in to that bet.

      • Messiahman

        And I’ll bet twenty more that it’s better than the last five F13 flicks (particularly the ones that turned him into a body-swapper and then sent him into outer space).

        It’s not like there’s a franchise to ruin here.

        And “running Jason” is terrific with me. Let’s not forget him charging around at top speed in Parts 2 and 3. The idea of a hulking, machete-wielding mongoloid barreling toward his victims like a locomotive is plenty cool and perfectly in keeping with the earlier films. Maybe Jason will actually be, y’know, *scary* for the first time in two decades.

        Anyway, the trailer is a blast, and it’s certainly the most atmospheric this series has ever looked.

    • Enraged_Otter

      Much agreed, just like what happened with AVPR and Halloween among others.

  • Undeadmin

    As much as I hate to say it this reboot actually looks good to me. Let’s hope they actually deliver on the final product. Anyone can make a good teaser.

    Im not that into the running Jason thing either but it is a reboot we have to expect a lot of changes like that.

  • Kryten Syxx

    Lemme grab this decapitated head in this spooky old cabin … OH MY GOD IT’S A DECAPITATED HEAD!

    At least the teens are still super stupid!

  • Terminal

    It’s a fast pace trailer because well, these are fast paced times.

  • Blockbuster

    You guys may not like too much…but I just got COLD CHILLS and goosebumps down my spine. Oh yeah!

  • The Buz

    Looked sweet to me. The Friday movies are nothing special so keep remaking them for as long as time goes on. The Running Jason bit was fuckin’ rad. Maybe he’ll actually be intimidating in this like he was in Part 4.

  • PelusaMG

    A running Jason… Nice! Let’s hope this is a metaphor for how good this flick will be, and a revival of the franchise. Jason has been ‘limping’ along for way too long up to now!

  • Dr Malachi Constant

    I don’t read Sutter Cane. But, I’ll admit it when he’s got a point.

  • Sutter Cane

    Regarding a running Jason, he’s frequently seen hauling ass in all the early Fridays. It was only after he became a zombie (or whatever you want to call it) in Jason Lives that he adopted his slow and steady stalker stride.

  • Enraged_Otter

    Awesome it’s Texas chainsaw massacre 3 starring Jason Vorhees, and did you see how gritty it looked. seriously though at most that trailer made me sightly curious but not one bit interested. it’s just another needless remake to be shoved down the throats of the 13-16 yo demographic we should know better by now.

    Now if Jason wore a French Canadian lumberjack outfit through out the film and we’d hear ch..ch.ch..eh.eh I’d be 100% on board.

    • G.D.

      YEAH, it’s just for the youngsters, like all the OTHER PG-13 Platinum Dunes rema- oh, wait. What? They weren’t PG-13? None of them? Well, sheeeeee-it!

      • Messiahman

        Ah yes, just like all the R-rated F13 flicks were made strictly with adults in mind. Same with the TCM remake that featured hot WB kids — clearly an adult-oriented property, mm-hmm. After all, it’s not like teenagers are the primary audience and key demographic for studio-made horror films, regardless of rating. Oh, waitasec… OF COURSE THEY ARE.

        Got anything else? Yeah, I thought not.

  • Dr Malachi Constant

    Yeah, that running bit caught me by suprise, too. The future is now … and it’s got A.D.D.

  • Kryten Syxx

    Well what do ya know … they may finally get something right, but if Jason stands still while some chick cuts off his arm with an axe, I’ll never watch another PD movie again.

  • MagusMaleficus

    I can’t believe those douche bags applauded that. Jason runs? Seriously?
