    I have been excited for this since I first heard about it. Yes I was a little skeptical about it, but once I saw the trailer for it I knew that it could possibly be a winner.

    Anyone else here excited for the new Friday the 13th movie?


    Here is a link to the two trailers for it and in different sizes.

    Apple - Movie Trailers - Friday the 13th



    I also am a big Jason fan so this was definitely a no brainer

    After seeing a clip of jason x on youtube, I cant see this. Also, I fucking hate horror/slasher movies. (Halloween Reserection, The strangers)

    well this has NOTHING to do with Jason X in even the slightest bit

    This Friday the 13th is kinda like a remake/re-envision of the original series.

    This movie actually is going to be basically the first 3 Jason movies all compiled in one movie, showing aspects of the first 3.

    Since you don't like horror type movies anyways then you won't like this movie, at all.

    let's see....
    Jason kicks ass- Check.
    Sluts and horndog boyfriends who are snotty brats die- Check.
    Sticking to the Old Skool of Ft13th- Check.

    i think it has enough to keep my interest.
    but if they make out like one character that is mentally gifted or too cute to die, i will throw a machete at the screen right before i puke and demand a refund, lol.

    okay, i just might puke and wish someone would cut up the screen. i am a wuss. sorry.

    Been following this forever. I'll be there opening day.

    Personally, I liked the Platinum Dunes remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, though I felt TCM the Beginning was a bit better.

    Even if this flickis mediocre, it'll still be better that the majority of Friday the 13th sequels. I love the series as much as you do, but c'mon.

    Truth be told the F13 series was always shitty. Fun, but shitty. Even Nightmare, Chainsaw and Halloween had at least one very good movie in their series. But F13 was never more than Saw with tits. You went to see how people died... and tits. What kept the series going was Jason's iconic image, which more than any other served as the template for later slasher films.

    I might see it. About a few months ago I downloaded Jason X off of Xbox Live just to see it for the first time...

    I want my 360 Microsoft Points back. :mad  What a bad movie.

    Weirdly got good buzz from a number of movie sites back in the day. I went to see it in the theater (matinee prices), and even with my expectations in check, I thought it sucked (and that's on a relative scale as compared to other F13 movies). However, the holodeck scene was worth the price of admission.

    I thought it was fun. Not great, but not as bad as that one in New York probably.

    I see it since I'm a big fan of Jason as well. I saw the trailers and I thought it would be cool to see, I was surprised to see the burlap sac again that Jason wore in part 2, but its more modernized in a way. So I'll see it hopefully.

    At the end of this movie we find out it wasn't Jason at all. Just his grandmother, Bea Arthur.

    I can't wait to see it, but I'll probably wait for the DVD. I do like what I've heard about how they've made Jason more like Rambo than supernatural.

    Jason X was worth it, if not for just the freeze-face-smash.

    Some people can love slashers for what they're for (tits and killing), others expect Shakespeare. :)
