Do You Want to See a Friday the 13th Remake?

The next horror movie remake coming down the pipeline is Friday the 13th, which recently got a director: Marcus Nispel, who also helmed the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Apparently the new Friday the 13th won't be a cookie-cutter remake, but will get a bit of a makeover:

"While Jason made only a brief appearance in the final frames of the first movie in 1980 and didn't even don his famous mask until the third movie, the new movie will focus on Jason — who will wear the mask and kill — and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake."

What do you think? Do you want to see a new Friday the 13th? Or should filmmakers just leave well enough alone?

Nope. Remakes suck.

Kinda depends. The original was good and it was good b/c it was his freaked out mom. I don't know about this. Wouldn't it be nice if they could reinvent the slasher movie and think of a new character with a new backstory and a new legend? I'm going to recommend checking out a great film called Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. A great send-up of the whole slasher film era...and it's original, something different and worth seeing. I'd rather see more of that. Go see Hatchet. Support filmmakers who are actually trying to think of new ways of telling the slasher story while putting enough of the slasher rules in there for us to laugh at too. Lazy. Lazy. Lazy. Try something new, which also means they should quit butchering good Asian horror films too.

I am torn on this. I like the series (as ridiculous as they often are, I watch them mostly for laughs, not scares). A reboot could be the kind of fresh blood this now corny/campy series needs, and bring it into the newer generation of viewers. On the other hand, there is part of me that cringes at people messing with a classic like the first Friday. Like it or hate it, it was one of the first of its kind.

This is getting ridiculous. Apparently no one has ideas for new movies and has to keep remaking old ones. What happened to Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash? I heard they were making that. I would actually go see that and see Ash kick their butts!

they shouldn't do a remake, just Friday the 13th Part 12. i had always thought they were gonna do 13. doing a remake seems ridiculous, just make another part and have it set during 2007/2008.

I would like to see an updated version... The early 80's ones seem, well, dated.... They have remade everything else, right?

Remakes keep the story alive and most ppl can associate with the actors of their generation. It would be interesting!
