Friday the 13th (2009) screenwriters Mark Swift and Damian Shannon took to Twitter recently to answer any and all fan questions. And at one point, they were asked if they ever consider having more Pamela Voorhees in the remake.
Shannon & Swift responded:
“We talked about it. Ultimately that idea was left behind… because we wanted it for the sequel! Yes, here for the first time ever, can confirm that we had extended flashbacks in the unmade winter sequel with Pamela and Elias. Oh, and Pamela was the fucking terrifying one…“
Sounds good to us! Check out their tweet below.
Shannon & Swift’s remake followed this synopsis: Against the advice of locals and police, Clay (Jared Padalecki) scours the eerie woods surrounding Crystal Lake for his missing sister. But the rotting cabins of an abandoned summer camp are not the only things he finds. Hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees lies in wait for a chance to use his razor-sharp machete on Clay and the group of college students who have come to the forest to party.
Rated R for strong bloody violence, some graphic sexual content, language and drug material, the film sports a mere 26% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Though technically well-constructed, Friday the 13th is a series rehash that features little to distinguish it from its predecessors.
