Im all for the remake and from the link it sounds really interesting.

Sounds more like a sequel than a remake.

Why are they remaking every fucking film! Jesus Christ are there any screenwriters out there with good original material…pathetic.

There’s lots, just not enough people with the balls to take the chance. It’s just safer to

cash in on the people who did.

I mean horror screenwriters :stuck_out_tongue:

I agree with Bio here. We need new horror screenwriters and new horror movies. Less remakes and more anti/heros to scream for in the theaters. I know they are out there, it’s just that the studios don’t have the balls enough to take a risk on unknown writers.

Being a huge friday the 13th fan this film is bad news for me. Ever since i heard of this film, about a year ago,it made me cringe. Why not just make another sequel?


#8

That’s kind of my thought as well. I mean, most of the sequels were pretty much

just rehashing the originals anyway.

I don’t know. I’ve read about it on wikipedia, and I think that done right this movie could be rather good. See, unlike Kruger or Micheal, Jason has this amazing mythology about him, and I’ve always wanted to see a movie, about what happened between the time he drowned, and the time he showed up in part 2.
