Friday the 13th Remake

I just saw a trailer of the remake of Friday the 13th, coming out Feb 13th 2009..

Questions....

Are they combining the first few parts into one? I saw the hockey mask...

I've always been a fan of the original Friday the 13th movies, I notice the guy playing Jason is not one of them from the original movies, I didn't care for the stunts that show in the trailer... Jason is always serious looking and mostly walks when chasing a victim, the trailer shows him running and jumping, I thought that was kinda stupid, plus the cloths and the belt kinda looked un original, Also there is a newer car in the movie...

You know they don't make horror movies like they use to back in the 70's and 80's.... Even characters were funny back then like Ethal Hubard.. Acting sure isn't the same....

I hope they do a great Job at this remake and make it look more original, like it was taking place in the 50's - 80's... They should use old cars, old appliances, furniture etc.... And for good sake use one of the original actors of Jason, or even some of the original crew like Ethal etc..

Apparently it's the first three films combined into one, they couldn't make it without having the hockey mask and Jason didn't pick it up till part three.

I'm not really liking the look of the trailer either, bit worried it might just suck

I said it in the other thread about this movie, but this looks like it'll be exactly the same as the TCM remake, only with a hockey mask and a machete.

I'll watch it (and probably buy the DVD - I'm a completest, heh), but it doesn't look overly appealing.

Doesn't look like it is going to add a lot to the genre, that's for sure.

They so often tend to remake films that didn't need a remaking. Look at The Wicker Man, Halloween, Black Christmas.. etc.

Was the halloween remake any good. In the trailer looks like Michael breaks chains or handcuffs with his human strength. Why would a director do that?

Actually, I didn't mind the Halloween remake as a film. But I don't think it added anything to the Michael Myers legend.

The original Halloween just wasn't a film that needed remaking. The original is one of the all-time great horror films.

Friday the 13th Remake

I just finished watching this one at a "sneak-preview".

I'm going to get bashed for this, but I actually enjoyed this one as much as the originals. This wasn't a great movie, but I was satisfied and entertained. I loved that asian guy. Funny as hell.

Didn't really scare me, but I wasn't expecting that. The movie had my girlfriend jumping a few times tho.

What's your thoughts on this one?

I haven't seen it yet, but I am looking forward to watching it this weekend. I heard from others that it's not as good as the original but I love the Friday the 13th series so I'm hopeful that this will be just as good as some of those.
