New Friday poster!

Dec. 4, 2008by: Mike Sampson

I loved the first teaser poster for the remake of FRIDAY THE 13TH. Simple, yet effective. Today we get the final poster for the film and sadly it's exactly what you'd expect. Jason? Check. Machete? Check. Woods? Check. Fog? Check. Lake? Check. I realize that this film is pretty much being sold on the iconography of Jason Voorhees but wasn't there something slightly more interesting to be done here? Am I being overcritical? What do you all think?...

**Generic Carnage**

"why would they do a horror movie about a walking corpse that kills teenager girls, targeted to the "tween" market? That makes absolutely no sense."

Jason is a walking corpse, and he kills teenage girls. That's his story. His Mother was the killer in the original and the fact that he's the killer in th new one is b.s.

Annnd....Freddy's better. At least his movies make some sense. And no, not the "if you die in a dream you die for real" sense, but chronologically

looks good

This Jason looks pretty cool, but I dont like it when they give Jason the scraggly strands of hair, I think he looked the best in Freddy vs. Jason.

I dig it. Honestly, what more do you need? These flicks aren't top notch works of art. It's a Jason flick. That said, Jason is the shit!

Poison the Well does a song called Crystal Lake, named for the original. They should totally use that in the trailer for this...

Hmmm.....

Looks cool. QQ though: why does Jason look more like a professional wrestler than a monstrous mass murderer?

Korollocke, why would they do a horror movie about a walking corpse that kills teenager girls, targeted to the "tween" market? That makes absolutely no sense. As for the poster, it is about the iconography. This is still a lot better then just a hockey mask with a 13 etched on it. I mean, we all know hollywood...

they had to go back and reshoot and do more scenes, experiences tells me this means it will be total emo crap, maybe the twilighted it up to get the tween girls in the seats?

It's not too bad. Maybe a touch cliche, but we're talking about a Friday the 13th flick here. The teaser was much better, IMO. Honestly, I'm psyched for the film and don't really care about the marketing stuff anyway.

i'm kind of disappointed with the poster. i'm all for the whole "simple is better" method, but this is just boring.

SPOILERS INCLUDED!!!!!

*SPOILERS*

I actually just saw the origanal Friday the 13th about 2 weeks ago, and I was surprised that Jason doesn't make an appearance, but rather his psychotic vengeful Mother. Are they skimming over that twist, and just letting the big man take the spotlight right from the start?

Awesome

I always hated the Friday the 13th movies, but this one looks great. Love the marketing style. Glad we are finally having a Jason movie in Crystal Lake again.

God bless

poster

I think the poster looks amazing. I mean lets be honest, Jason is the only reason to watch the movie, to see him kill lots of teens. It is not like there is a deeper meaning to the movie. It's just Jason+horny campers=Death and Mayhem. The poster looks sweet and the tagline is good as well...since it is sort of a reboot of the franchise.
