Friday the 13th teaser

Oct. 22, 2008by:

If you missed Spike TV's Scream Awards (where our man Jimmy O and his 'stache stalked the red carpet), then you didn't catch the new glimpse at the reboot of the slasher series FRIDAY THE 13th.

Fortunately, we have internets. The clip is really more of an entire scene than a teaser trailer, but it offers a good idea of what we should be in for. Namely, nosy twentysomethings being hunted/hacked by our favorite hockey-masked meat masher.

Extra Tidbit: Will Jason's surprising speed become the latest thing for horror fans to complain about?

I remember reading a review of a screening and the reviewer said Jason ran through out the film. I dig it though.

Not needed

I posted this message yesterday at Arrow in the Head. They seemed to be less positive than the Joblo folks so I thought I would pipe in here just to give my two cents worth.


The only thing worse than there being a remake of Friday the 13th is the fact that they're still using the old music. It's awful. Not the music, but the fact that they're selling this as a stand alone "retelling" or whatever B.S. If you're going to redo something and make it new and fresh shouldn't you at least try

If you're going to redo something and make it new and fresh shouldn't you at least try to reinvent or make it yours. I'm done. I'm done with anything hollywood sells to us as horror. Done. I mean it. It's a joke now and if people can't even make anything original, I'm out. My life as a horror fan has been officially destroyed.

A bit over zealous I know. But I just can't accept this. Make a sequel and call it a sequel. Jeeze Us.

This may be blasphemous, but...

...I'm getting pretty excited for this. I admit I raged pretty hard when I first heard about this remake, but I was also upset to hear about the TCM remake and I ended up loving it. I'll most likely be checking it out when it's released.

Im actually Diggin It

It was dark and thrilling. had the stalking down, the eerie look and i am FOR the jason being more PREDATOR worthy. ya he looked to move faster but i WANT that. Jason is a boring killer in my opinion and i think in this remake we get to see something good out of the character! I LIKEY!

Shoutout to my girlfriend for pointing that out to me (who found the scoop before I did, and on Perez Hilton's site of all places).

... Jason the benefeit of the doubt. I was totally up in arms about the running at the end of the scene, as are most of you; however, a valid point was brought to my attention. It is possible that the footage of Jason running at the end might not be Jason at all. It could possibly someone pretending to be Jason in order to scare the female featured.

I really hope this is the case. But if not, don't expect me to blow a load over this depiction of our favorite machete-wielding psycopath.

Actually, Jason ran in Parts 2-4

People seem to forget that for some reason. That or they just haven't seen the first few films in the franchise, before Jason turned into a zombie. Really, this movie looks very much in the spirit of the first couple of films, or at least lets hope. I actually quite enjoy 1-4 in the series. After Jason "died again" and was resurrected as the slow, zombie Jason people have come to know, I didn't have much interest.

Posers

First of all, this is not even any new footage we hadn't already seen. Secondly, some of you guys are just pansy little posers. He took TWO FRICKIN little steps, more like hops really, and you are getting all tied up in geek-knots, squealing "OHMUGAAAAAHHHH, he's RUNNING NOW?!?!? UGGGHHH, Remakes SUCK, OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG" Christ, it's a friggin movie. Get over yourselves. It's supposed to be intense and scary. Would you rather he skip towards the victim, whistling as he throttles an ax

..AM I the only one..

..who couldn't see shit as to what was happening to the dude in the teaser?

I don't normally like to support these "reboots", but this looks like it might be decent.

burst of speed?

To be completely honest and unbiased, it is pretty normal speed for anyone on the planet I would say.

I would imagine a fan of Jason would enjoy the fact that he takes a couple of steps toward the victim to put some power into the attack.

It isn't like he was standing on the side of a road, saw a car and chased it down.

Yes!

To answer the extra tidbit, YES! I was all in until I saw the burst of speed from Jason and my expression went from 'this is kinda kool' to 'BY GAWD NO!!!'

Normally I give remakes the benefit of the doubt. Some little changes are needed here and there. This however is needless. Next thing you know he'll start teleporting..... oh...
