Youíve lost this round PROM NIGHT and other blood-less, PG-13 remake shitfests! Because our boy, Jason, plays gory each and every time! Hence, word has been issued that next Februaryís re-imaging of FRIDAY THE 13TH will indeed receive a proper R Rating! I canít believe there was even ever a rumor that Mr. Voorhees would dare to tread in PG-13 territory. The only f*cking 13 that should ever be associated with the Camp Crystal Lake saga is in the flickís title. Whoever would think otherwise must have suffered severe brain damage from nearly drowning at the bottom of a lake.
Platinum Dunes producer, Brad Fuller, spoke about the dumb PG-13 rumor to further set our minds at ease: "None of our remakes have been PG-13. How do you remake a rated R horror movie and take the guts out literally and figuratively? What is F13 without sex, drugs and really, really long sharp machetes? And why would we, horror fans ourselves, produce a movie devoid of the things that made the title so appealing in the first place? So let me say for the record, that the F13 that we start shooting this Thursday is a full-bodied, rated R film."
Amen to that! Just one question. If Platinum Dunesí producers are such big horror fans, then why did they make THE HITCHER so shitty? Oh, well. I guess nobodyís perfect. Anyways, Fuller also gave us some inside info on what violent treats we can expect from the new FRIDAY when it opens on Friday the 13th of February, 2009:
"It has insane kills that will be shown in all their glory- it has a group of college students who drink and even have sex. We are betting that if we donít hold back that the audience will reward us for being bold in a time when some horror movies are playing the ratings game. So we embrace the R-rating FRIDAY THE 13TH will have, and hope you (our readers) will too."
College students drinking and even having sex? Youíre shitting me! Looks like Dunes has all of Jasonís priorities in order. I really am looking forward to this!
