Huge horror fan. Mainly the slasher sub genre. Die Hard Friday the 13th fan. I'm not like a lot of viewers. I love the entire series. Yeah, there are things about some films that I don't like. But I can honestly say that I don't hate a single Friday flick. I love to write and to bring info to people. So this site and my love for that go hand in hand. You will also find me over at my site http://www.benevolentstreet.com Feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]

  1. Awesome cover art, but the Killer Cut slash across the cover is REALLY distracting, especially on the DVD version. Ah well, I was planning on getting the R-Rated cut anyways.

  2. I like how they advertise: Hot and sexy cast! Is that really one of the selling points.

  3. I’m excited to get the extended edition and the digital copy and Friday the 13th (1980) retrospective in HD on Blu-Ray. Blu is definitely better!

  4. Told ya it was coming in June. :)
    Sounds awesome.

  5. Blu-ray will be mine!

  6. OMG…People this is what you wanted and fucking still complaining over some bullshit slash mark across a damn box? Just be happy for once that they did bring the unrated verion.

  7. Does the killer cut include the theatrical version as well, or is it like Zombie’s Halloween dvd?

  8. It contains both versions according to the flyer

  9. cant wait for this to come out….loved the remake and cant wait for the sequel

  10. the blu-ray will have both versions but you’ll have to buy both dvds versions separatly which sucks so i’m getting the blu-ray to save money

  11. Cant WAIT for that Blu Ray Baby and ill get DVD also

  12. looks fucking sweeeet!!! good job on the cover art! for once i have no complaints!! i’m so freaking psyched to get the BD!!

    anybody know what the ‘order due date’ thing is? if that’s the date to order it to receive it by june 16th, you can pre-order it on amazon anytime with rush shipment and get it on the 16th. although i think i’d rather just stop by target on my way home from work and not worry about a ridiculous shipping cost.

    i’m so glad they didn’t put anything about texas chainsaw massacre on the cover. right on!

  13. Nice, but I notice many always refer to here and say “the U.S. release” or “U.S. cover”. That is fine and all, but you chould also just say North American version, as it refers to all of the U.S., good ol’ Canada and med-i-cho (Mexico). ;) All of North American covers are the same, as we’re all region-1. Don’t know of many that are foreign to North American soil know that. It’s why all English language features mostly have Espanol (Spanish) and Francis (French) language tracks and subtitles, for the most part, cause of Mexico and the always interesting Quebec.

    Sorry but just wanted to clear that up, as I was always wondering if anyone imported our stuff and didn’t know that all of North American titles out on DVD are the same, and why we have Spanish & French audio tracks. I made mention cause I have Asperger’s Syndrome, and I am studying the French language, and I have been asked before about region-1 titles before. Hope that all helps clear up the whole U.S. thing. :)

  14. Oops, ment to say Francais up there. My mistake. *grin*

  15. cant wait to get my hands on a copy, hey every one, the teaser trailer for Rob Zombies HALLOWEEN 2 comes out tonight with crank 2, and there is a sneekpeek at HALLOWEENMOVIES.COM from entertainment tonight, check it out it looks like it will be an awesome flick, really anticipated for sure.

  16. wow. some special fetchers for only blu ray
    this fan is seriously pissed.

  17. So lemme get this straight. Is the DVD copy going to have BOTH theatrical and uncut versions ON THE SAME DISC SET? Or will you have to buy both theatrical and uncut versions on two seperate discs? That’s nothing but a money grabbing scheme, I hate it when they do that, like what happened with Rob Zombie’s Halloween dvd release.

  18. I think it will have both versions on one disc. If that’s the case then it will definite be worth buying. The only thing that sucks is, that the other special features will be available on Blu-Ray only. That sucks so much. But who knows it may be crappy or short. I’m hoping they have a full documentary on the rebirth of Jason, kind of like what they did when they released The Texas Chainsaw Massacre special edition. I can’t wait for the 16th! Also June 16th is the release of parts 4, 5 and 6. Having debates on if I should buy the others. I was kind of disappointed that they did not have any special features for part 3.

  19. Yay! Unrated Killing from Jason!

  20. How do you post your own from scratch?

  21. Just to clear things up:
    There will be two different DVD version, the theatrical one and the uncut one. Both are separate edition. But those two versions are gonna be included on the same blu-Ray (yeah!).

    And captain_brandon1980, nice to see someone who is interested in learning french, i’m from the, has you say , always interesting Quebec and speak french, but still have to watch my old Jason in english :)

    Jason pour toujours !!!

  22. Would look cooler if the blu-ray version’s close up of Jason had the eyes blacked out.[y’know like he used to look in the 80’s.

  23. what the fuck now i have to buy the blu ray to get the features and i only hav on blu ray player in the house which is in the living room where my fat lazy mom hogs the tv so i hav to buy the dvd as well. This bites >:(

  24. Hey there Mr Moe.How’dya say Jason fucking rule’s in french?I’m only asking cos i’m taking my famiy to Disneyland in Paris this coming July and it would cool know something apart from the usual tourist lingo.

  25. To Mr. Moe,

    Why merci bien! :D Oui, have always thought the French language was beautiful, and don’t wanna say much, but it is my dream to retire in a French city (such as Lyon and the like, or Nice in the more expensive south) one day. [an affordable studio apartment with just the loner that is myself, once day when I am older is what I ahve planned.] I’m currently saving up quietly, even though I’m still in my mid ’20s, as I say this.

    I make monthly bulk orders from Amazon, and I’ve decided to step up my French film buying monthly, as well as purchase some books from Barnes & Noble and Waldens and to eventually join a language center’s classes, in order to fully immerse myself. Untill then, I’m usign the movies subtitled, and always concentrating to learn more then just travel phrases.

    Wish me good luck! (bonne chance) :D

    Also that is cool that you use the English language tracks, but if that ever tires you, I wanted to say I have all of the Friday’s from the old barebones Paramount discs, to the ‘04 bullshit “ultimate edition” boxset and all of the recent Deluxe Edition’s I’m re-buying (big completeist here), and they all thankfully have French language tracks if you ever wanted to watch & listen to them in your native tongue. I started re-watching them all in French earlier this year, and must say, it is a unique experieance in helping me learn! Plus interesting to hear what native French speakers always heard, voice, tone & accent wise, when watching the original Paramount released films in they’re county. And cause I know the first 8 Paramount films by heart, I really don’t need the subtitles that is included on the discs.

    The French accents on the doomed teens who take up a newly rented home right next door to the Jarvis family in The Final Chapter sound uniquely poetic, and hearing all of the harsh language from the French track on A New Beginning (Part V) is really helping me on my French swears. ;)

    Just a little tip thee for those of us interested in the serious study of foreign languages. Hope no one thought it was too off-topic.

    Oh and to Baz:

    It should be “Jason putain regles!” like that (with an accent mark on that first e in ‘regles’. Hope that helps! Enjoy your little holiday.

  26. to Captain_ brandon 1980

    not hating or anything but Jesus Christ! For a blog ur entries are way to frickin long. And what the heck of a tangent are u going on now with this french stuff???

  27. damn this cover art looks fuckin great.

    no complaints should be heard about this dvd and blu-ray.

    can’t wait to cop this on day one!!!

  28. BigTdoe,

    Whoa, calm down. It is a Blog, and we’re all allowed un-limted space for postings. Hell, you chould post just as much, or more, if you wished. I was replying to a Quebec poster who thanked me for currently studying the French language. If you had read it right, no offence, you would have gotten that. Plus, baz requested to know how to say “Jason fucking rules” in French, and I told him.

    With me now much larger work scheduale with working over time and not posting as much, my occasionally postings shouldn’t be getting on your nerves THAT bad, I’m sorry to say. Hope this didn’t come off too smart eleky, as I’ve had a slight bummer of a day.

  29. Bonjour Captain Brandon1980.Thanks for the reply dude.Don’t let Big Tdoe get you down.For someone who thinks your entries are too long he still must take the time to read them…………KI,KI,KI,MA,MA,MA.

  30. captain_brandon 1980 & baz

    I wasnt getting angry, u guys cant take constructive criticism lol

    Like I said Im not hating & dont get ur Ms. Voorhees panties in a bunch! I just said ur postings are enormously long & always seem to get off on tangents.

    ps baz I really dont read them cuz I usually scan through everyones comments as everyone does, but when I see one that is like a page long I say to myself “I’m not reading a biography” Im sure 90% of people would agree with me.

    just being honest

  31. travis, worry not my friend…you don’t have to also buy the dvd. i too only have one blu-ray player & the digital copy is the solution.

    digital copies are in 480p resolution, same as dvd. you can drop the file on your computer and burn it to a dvd pretty easily. depending on what the file type is you may have to download some software to do it, but you can usually get a free trial or something.

    just make sure you use dvd-r rather than dvd+r – or check your dvd player’s manual to make sure it can play whatever kind of disc you burn it to.

  32. First thanks baz. And as to BigTdoe, that was a pretty stupid reply with kid shit about “don’t get your panties all in a bunch”, so just ignore any & all of my future posts here, if they truely get on your nerves. You chould also explore the IMDB Friday boards, as there’s plenty of shorter replies for you to bask in otehr there. ;) Mean while, I doubt many would agree since your the first to complain.

    Peace out.

  33. who gives a crap…losers

  34. Joe, c’mon now, don’t YOU start in dude. I used to enjoy comin’ here, but now I’m gonna have to stop it seem’s if everyone is gonna be ignorant as all fuck. Like the time I made mention of my up-converter home theatre system making the Deluxe Edition’s looking fine enough so that I don’t really care about buying the BluRay’s anytime soon, it seem’s the few times I post over the last two 1/2 months always stirs up some mild shit here.

    It’s fine, I’ll just read the site & won’t post. Didn’t know about the types here who don’t like reading my stuff. Peace out, boys & ghouls.

  35. I’ll get the DVD unrated version, hated that stupid close up cover art… don’t really care about the special features, just the uncensored movie, not that it’s going to improve much over that mess of a remake anyways.

  36. Héhé won’t post too long since it seems to irritate some people :)

    Captain, I too own the version with the french track, but since I prefer to watch it in the original track I watch them in english, I’m not watching many french stuff these days :)

    To Baz, you can say ‘Jason est le meilleur’ but since you’re going to Paris say ‘Jason c’est la bombe’. kind of an expression over there.

    Now back on topic, does anyone know if the scene where Jason is sharpening his machete will be featured on the killer cut version? Let’s hope so !

  37. This is going to be one bad ass Blu-Ray disc. I can’t wait for it. I’m going to watch both versions of the film back to back. I’m going to re-watch the theatrical cut, and then the extended edition (with the extra 15 minutes). Then I’m going to watch every special feature there is. Man, this Blu-Ray is going to be good!

  38. Where do you get the extra 15 minutes from? The small print says that the theatrical version is 97 min and the extended version is 106 min, Thats only 9 extra minute’s not 15. Am I missing something? Can’t wait for the release!!!!

  39. fucked us again

  40. and captain brandon once again i agree with u in every way some of theses ppl are dicks

  41. Jason should talk sometimes. Not, like a lot, but like, “I’m gonna git you, bitch!” or something, just once or twice per movie. Or like, “C’mere, fucker!” Just scary as hell. It’s so stupid how he doesn’t talk.

  42. Haha, I don’t wanna start nothin’, but thanks for the support, T.

  43. captain b ur welcome lol……and timmy iv never got why he didnt talk like in the older ones he moaned and stuff but idk what happen lol idk i he should say all that then it would make him more like freddy or chucky

  44. In the opening sequence of Jason Goes To Hell, I like the fact the filmmakers had Kane grunting and making some sounds. Made the character more real. I wouldn’t like if Jason had lines in the movie though. Just wouldn’t feel right. If you want to see the franchise “debacled” by Jason talking, then reference the end of Jason Takes Manhattan. Truly Awful.

  45. I wish the covers were the same. Blue Ray is trying to replace DVDs too soon in my opinion. I feel like movies cost as much as videogames now. If I had a PS3…..it wouldn’t be so bad.

  46. Yeah, but once in a while he shoud be like, “Bitch I’m gonna pull your heart out of your mouth!” Just say it all crazy while running throught the forrest. He can do it. He’s punched a hole through people.

  47. A little off topic but has anyone seen the replica hockey mask (2009) made by NECA that thing is pretty fuckin nice. It says they are very limited just wanted to throw that out there.

  48. You know…readin gall the comments on here everyday. It’s kinda like middle school boys looking at porn for the first time. Be happy they done as much as they could because June is still 2 months away.

  49. “In the opening sequence of Jason Goes To Hell, I like the fact the filmmakers had Kane grunting and making some sounds. Made the character more real. I wouldn’t like if Jason had lines in the movie though. Just wouldn’t feel right. If you want to see the franchise “debacled” by Jason talking, then reference the end of Jason Takes Manhattan. Truly Awful.”

    I so agree. He did grunt in Part 2 (kick to the groin from Ginny, plus the monsterous howling like noise right at the very end as Warrington the liar swings in on that harness to grab Amy Steel, ect), plus in Part 3 (right hand stab through from Chris) and also of course as Trish hits in him The Final Chapter while there is an almost rape-like scenario going on, and during his death moans from the death blow Tommy delivers to him.

    So yeah, I’m all for moaning. In my mind the character is amute from all of the trauma he’s had over the years and that he’s commited to people, but I like it when the human Jason from Parts 2-to-4 still had him cry out from severe pain. Indeed it’s only human.

  50. I gotta agree with the captain and jasonsfury here on the grunting and moaning issue.Jason on the surface appears to be an uneducated,backwater hick and wouldn’t have the mental capacity to say “witty”,Freddy esque wisecracks.This is the very reason that the Freddy character ceased to be scary and became very camp.

    Bonjour Mr Moe.Thanks for the french phrase tips.captain brandon1980 and your good self’s advice should prove useful this summer.Genuniely grateful guys.

  51. No commentaries?

  52. I think Jason should just stay silent. Sure he can make a noise from time to time, but anything more then that would just lead to him turning into another Freddy.

  53. Jason wasn’t meant to speak at all. He’s a silent killer. He’s horribly disfigured, he never went to school as a child. The only person he knew was his mother. Of course he went to summer camp but the kids were dicks to him and caused him to drown. I wouldn’t bother talking to any of those little fuckers if they were doing the stuff they did to Jason. I can understand why Jason has the strong desire to kill and he does that in full balls out glory. One thing I’m hoping the DVD will be when it comes out is bloody as hell, very gory. The producers mentioned the movies was gory but that gore was cut out because of the wimps at MPAA.

  54. Looking forward to release, in spite of my not loving the reboot, but I much prefer the cover of the DVD over the blu-ray.

    Although seeing it in blu-ray will be sweet!

    I look forward to finally being able to get Part 2 and Part 3 on b-r. Sweeter!

  55. Bonjour Mr Moe.Thanks for the french phrase tips.captain brandon1980 and your good self’s advice should prove useful this summer.Genuniely grateful guys.”

    oh ya welcome :) Although interesting to note, I agree somewhat with his rual looking nature in Part 2, with his baggy denium jean over alls and flannel shirt under neath it. But I’ve often had to tell others, not form the Yankee & Canuck land that is thie North American continant, that, depending on the film makers asked, the films were always ment to take place in the North East in “New England territory” as it’s called.

    Namely either New Jersey (first film was shot there, and dispite being shot out on the west coast in Sawgus, California there is a general store sign with Green Valley, NJ written on it in Part 3-D), or Connecticut (I think it was the old Pit of Horror.com intrerviews from ’round 2000 or ‘99 in which Joseph Zito said when helming Part IV, he requested Connecticut lisences plates and also a real tombstone made of hard marbel for the Mrs. Voorhees gravesite, as he noted on his Prowler commentary track). The region isn’t really known for it’s rural counties, although there most certainly are rural countries in those states, just as it is anyway. It’s mostly considered surburbanite, as opposed to here in the south, where we have our own cities though are largely considered rural as well.

    Okay rant over, and hope that helped a bit! And for sure, too much talking ruined Freddy, but to be quite honest, after the first two dark films in the series, I was honestly never the biggest Freddy fanatic out there. Pretty sub-par series, on average, as a lot of them simply don’t hold p over time in my eyes. To each they’re own.

  56. he was retarded so i dont think he would even know how to cuss and say things like that im sure his mom sheltered him but he should moan other wise he just seems like a robot or something he is human he did before he should again and i also (once again lol) agree with u captain b all that talking and wise cracking diff ruin freddy i have the box set i watched all of the movies maybe 3-4 times now hes old news iv watched my f13th movies well over 10 times per movie and its still as fresh as ever

  57. i agree that jason grunting and stuff is okay, but IMO the grunting at the beginning of jason goes to hell is lame. it reminds me of phil hartman doing frankenstein on SNL. and right before they blow him up he makes a “hmm??” sound that is just very comical to me…it’s something scooby doo would do. this is the point where i start to tire of kane as jason…it’s a bit overdone.

    no offense, kane. you’re still one of the best & jason x was a huge improvement. i’m just overly critical.

  58. Looks awesome! I can’t wait to get this movie, im going to get the blu ray, but i wish that blu rays didnt cost so much, many times i decide to get the standard dvd edition of movies because of the cost, but im definetly going to splurge and grab the BD on this one :)

  59. Ok, is it 106 min. for the Extended Version or 122 min? On bloody-disgusting.com they’ve said 122 min. long and the back of the DVD cover says 106 min. Anyone know?

  60. tommyblah, you’re just a closet Jason Goes To Hell hater! :) I think that I am in the minority of fans that really liked that movie. Way to link Phil Hartman to the franchise, by the way.

  61. Scott,
    The theater cut is 97 min and the extended edition is 106 min. This is according to the flyer Tony posted at the top of this post and at imdb.com.

  62. yeah he did sound lame in jason goes to hell i love f13th but i dont like that movie there r some cool kills but over all they tried to make jason something hes not-a worm demon thing who likes to shave cops weird just like mike with the whole mark of the thorn thing im glad the restarted both of them series maybe do a better job (on f13th loved halloween) but hey its still better

  63. Who remembers Part 4 when Jason kills that fat woman eating the banana. Listen carefully…. There is a grunt but because she is so fat there is a very very silent bitch. Listen people!!!!

  64. Yeah, but I just want him to be like, “Hey, fucking whore, c’mere, I’m gonna crush your skull with my bare hands.” If he did that like while he was chasing a girl though a house, that would be awesome. Or, “Hey, dude, you’re gonna pay!” Just all crazy though his mask.

  65. Once again the dvd companys are screwing us over in order to push blu-ray, there is no way in hell im gonna fork out £500 + on a new tv and player in order to watch a few extra special features.

  66. Sorry Timmy i’ve tried my hardest to imagine Jason shouting obscenities whilst hunting down victims.But for the life of me i just can’t see it.The inhumane grunting is way more effective…………..KI,KI,KI,MA,MA,MA.

  67. yea i can picture it but that would never work lol grunts and moans should be the only things that come from his mouth

  68. you sound like a big pu**Y captain_brandon1980 man. Whining little C*NT!

  69. captain_brandon1980 is a whiny as all baby who needs to get laid. T needs needs to mind his damn business.

  70. Whoa, I’ve made enemies here. Whatever did I do? lol It’s just a message board, gentlemen. Don’t take it seriously. You’ll never see me in the flesh, in person. So please, don’t worry about little old me.

  71. Im thrilled and excited about the Killer cut edition on Blu-Ray. Im just wondering if the case advertised is a sleeve. It looks like one. Even if its the box art Not dissapointed. Just like the dvd cover better.

  72. i’m not a closet jgth-hater. i’m openly a jgth-hater. that movie blows dick. but it has a few good moments, and if i ignore all that is wrong with it, i can tolerate it. i love the franchise so naturally it’s a part of my collection and i watch it from time to time. but i’m still gonna talk shit. if we don’t, they might think it’s okay to make a movie like that.

  73. man, nobody likes the close-up jason shot. i think it’s bad-ass. he looks freaking crazy.

  74. ok well if ur going to post something on here its for the whole world to read if u dont like that then dont post anything ur obviously not minding urs all i was doing was agreeing with him because hes right

  75. Not like in every scene. Just like say he is coming out of the lake, he’d be all, “All you counseler fuckers are gonna pay!!” But he could kinda growl it cause his voice is effed up from the fish eating at him and shit. Then, some chick would be all, “Oh my god, help me!” and he’d be all, “You won’t get away bitch.”

  76. Timmy,are you a screen writer for the “scary movie” franchise?Your surname wouldn’t be Wayans would it?

  77. “baz Apr 23rd, 2009 at 8:05 pm Timmy,are you a screen writer for the “scary movie” franchise?Your surname wouldn’t be Wayans would it?

    LMAO Brilliant. :D

  78. lol that would be an good idea lol like in south park they made jason have a gay voice lmao that was funny lol

  79. anyone notice how much confrontation there is on every f13th blog? maybe they’re right about us watching these movies because we’re freaking psychopaths ourselves.

    although maybe watching them helps us release some of that…they’re taking too long to release this on home video and no new horror is coming out! we’re all starting to flip out!!

    release it early like they did with twilight!! someone’s gonna get killed in here!

  80. Well said tommyblah.

  81. I hate to make mention of it again, as I just made two recent posts away from here not about it, but I agree: Let’s all try to get along, cause there is basically no other place for us big time, more hardcore Jason Voorhees enthusiasts to meet, as I find the IMDB boards quite weak and not focused properly, with a severe lack of activity and a lot of only mild and/or casual fans who aren’t REALLY into Slashers & Giallo’s there. So let’s all make peace and be calm. All of us.

    And TommyBlah is right in that we all don’t wanna start getting a bad name, as those of us that watch all of those old school Slasher films, like the original Friday’s, are still somewhat lookde down upon anyway, so let’s not but any more shit on said already tainted image anyhow. Thankully, as a lot of people and genre stars meet us at conventions that are becoming increasingly popular, they know that most of us are really just laidback, regular acting folk that enjoy a certain type of entertainment.

    Peace be with ya all.

  82. I think it really stinks that they leave us DVD owners out of the water, and want you to pay double to get both R rated and UR versions.

    That being said, I want to put out that Jason should never talk. Well, for that matter, Friday the 13th should be less comedy and more horror. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love comedy movies. Just watched Step Brothers the other day, lol. But, Friday the 13th is not supposed to be comedy, it’s supposed to be “HORROR”. Jason ripping people’s arms and legs off, slicing people in half from head to nads, just killing anything that moves, leaving Jason’s future victims pissing there pants, wondering if they are next or not. That’s a true Friday the 13th film. If you want comedy, go watch Scary Movie.

    That’s just how I love my Friday movies. And I think they are in the right direction with the remake. True it had some comedy moments in it, as every movie should, but the movie brought back some true horror Jason action where it actually looked like his victims were actually scared again. I don’t know if it was because everybody seemed like better actors in this one, or not, but it seemed like most of the folks were actually scared in this film, as they were trying to get away from Jason. With Jason X and Freddy vs Jason, I didn’t see it that way. Just seemed way too much comedy, with a bunch of folks that couldn’t act if there life depended on it. (Who else feels the same way?)

    Everybody has there own opinion about this. Its obvious that some folks want Jason to speak. I for one don’t want to see it happen, but hey, its an opinion, and that’s what message boards are all about, right? This is just my opinion on the matter.

    “PEACE”

  83. I agree with ya Mairon (nice to see fresh blood in here, by the way, as I don’t think I’ve read your posts before).

    I AGREE 100%, but sadly, I feel comedy is expected now (a lot of the dumb down, low brow stuff, like “Ohh look at your perfect nipple placement” shit in the new Friday ‘09) also rubs me the wrong way, but I feel a lot of that goofy stuff is here to stay.

    For that reason, the New Line Cinema instalments/years I’ve hardly touched on DVD. I’ve watched them like once or twice and them gone through the commentary tracks casue I am a HUGE affacindo of learning about the 35mm film making process and each individual film via that special features medium, but I wish we chould get back tot hat gross-roots “really just scares and gore” and virtually no comedy aspect of the Friday films.

    We shall see. And indeed: Grunting & a death moan that is disturbing (he is a mentally challanged man after all, and so in original “death” at the end of The Final Chapter was always a bit more disturbing to me as a young lad. I think I lightly fought back tears and cried as I saw it on Cinemax/Showtime/HBO originally in the late ’80s. But indeed: Entire speaches and words and for a WHOLE OTHER (and I feel inferior, not to bash another well established franchise) and character (as we all know, his name begins with an F).

    Peace out as well.

  84. One more thing, then I promise I’ll leave, lol…

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Urber Jason 1 more time from Jason X, but a more serious Jason X movie this time around. And not on a space ship either, but on the Earth 2, in a place that would be identical to the surrounding area of Camp Crystal Lake. A final chapter to close out the original movies, the way they should have done it before the remake. A truly unstoppable Jason where it would actually take some brain power to stop him, and this time, back in his own enviroment, deep within the forest. Now that would be sweet.

  85. I agree with dialing back the comedy…or at least don’t mix the comedy and jason, which is where jgth-fvj get weak.

    There was definitely more of a fear factor in the new one, but I think my main problem is I didn’t feel it. I don’t know quite what would have done it for me. I don’t think it’s that I’m too old now because other movies accomplish it for me…the descent, hostel (first time around of course)…I even get some chills rewatching some of the older f13ths, halloween 2…even the new my bloody valentine was scarier for me, and it was fairly campy. I don’t know. Why didn’t this do it for me?

    Maybe it’s because the male leads were such boners. What were they thinking with the casting?

  86. nothing personal against any of them…it was intentional no doubt. that jared guy is the only likeable one, but they needed to do something more with the character. maybe the killer cut helps with that.

  87. I just wanna see over the top,”hostel”style gore and everyone getting wiped out in the most horrifying fashion.Especially the character bringing the comic relief.(Cos there’s always one).
    I’m not disagreeing that there shouldn’t be comedy,rather more that it should be kept to a bare minimum.Remember the comedic pantomime villain that Freddy turned into,(he’s behind you).We definitely don’t want that for Crystal Lake’s favourite son.

  88. Oops………KI,KI,KI,MA,MA,MA by the way

  89. yeah that’s part of the problem. some of the kills in this movie were pretty brutal and gory and i was feeling like they were on the right track…and then others were just kind of like, wtf? that’s it?

    a couple examples that come to mind –
    first kill, ears sliced off? that’s it?
    the impaling of the biggest douchebag in the movie…really, you can’t even beat his ass a little first? what was all the build up for then?
    danielle panabaker getting impaled with the machete…underwhelming death for an underwhelming romantic connection to the main character…that’s it?

    oh man…i always end up bitching about this movie. i don’t hate it. i swear. i just love f13th too much and want them to think these movies through a little more. we always get something so rushed.

  90. shit should i have written SPOILERS on that one?

  91. michael myers is way better than jason and jason is a mommys boy and michael when kick jasons but anyday of the week

  92. I don’t see F13th remake anywhere on Best Buy’s site for 6/16/09, just pt’s 4-6 deluxe editions. I’ll take this site’s word for it though because it’s always been reliable. I’m going for the uncut dvd version, screw the theatrical and Blu Rays.

    I noticed someone mentioned RZ Halloween dvds, what is the difference between the 2 that have been released? I have the one that came out in December 2007 I believe it was. Is it worth buying the recent one that came out? The only thing that looked different about it was the 5 hour documentary thing about the movie or something.

  93. I’ll be happy when it’s on my shelf with the rest of the collection

  94. I’m on the same page as tommyblah.There should be more prolonged brutality as it may help restore the fear that the originals gave us as kids.Why is it that so many people visit the blog page knowing how to make a traditonal,fearful impact to an F13 movie and so many directors/screenwriters don’t?Are there no fans among them?We are a rare and dying breed folk’s.

  95. The movie was tense at times, but the kills weren’t that intense as we all thought they were going to be. I would’ve expected to see America Olivio’s character be dragged out from the tent and hacked to pieces with the machete, or a nice nod to the sleeping bag kill from part 7. The kill was creative nonetheless but something that Jason himself wouldn’t do. I would’ve loved to see the first kill more brutal than what we’d seen on the screen. It did have an impact but not that strong of an impact. I agree with what one of the posters said about Trent’s death, it could be a little more longer than what it was, he should’ve been put through hell before he met his untimely demise. Maybe an arm hacked off or a leg, or instead of his torso being impaled, why not have Jason slam Trent’s head and impale that part of his body instead of the torso and have the truck drive off with Trent’s head stuck on the spike-thing, after Trent’s head had been impaled, Jason then could’ve swung his machete and severed the head while it was still stuck on the spike. Chewie’s death could’ve been more intense as well instead of having a screw driver rammed underneath his chin, why couldn’t Jason use that buzz saw that we’d seen dangling. Jason could’ve used that to saw off Chewie’s hand with the screw driver in and then saw right through his face and saw down his body splitting it almost in two. Yeah, I kind of like to see deaths in horror movies brutal and bloody as hell, not to mention gory. There’s nothing wrong with showing blood and gore in a Friday the 13th movie, that’s what makes it all the more entertaining. Instead I’ve felt we got a watered down version. We didn’t see a whole lot of blood and gore, maybe in the extended version we will. Here’s to hoping that we will.

  96. A more catching phrase across the box should have went something like this…

    Now, bring Friday the 13th home on Blu-ray dvd and REALLY SHIT YOUR DRAWS, in the comforts of your own home!

  97. How about a new score version?!!?!?!

  98. check out this kick ass song

  99. right on baz…and how appropriately right after you, john effortlessly posts some real IDEAs. why is it these fuckers making MILLIONs come up with so little with a couple years of preparation, yet tons of random people can come up with better shit off the top of their heads?

    gore aside, in this age of special effects, they can’t juice it up a little?…like i watch these jason statham action flicks where they do all this crazy fucking editing that really gets your blood pumping. with all the pathetic attempts to modernize this, we get none of that?…basically we get everything except what works.

    how about when jason’s lunging at somebody, cut to some matrix-style mid-shot slow-mo of him smashing their head. is it too much to ask for a little production value? shaky hand-held cameras (that nobody likes btw) is the only thing they can do?

    a perfect example for comparison is ‘hatchet.’ that kill where he rips that guys head clear off from the mouth and the camera rotates around them as he’s doing it. that’s a freaking low-budget movie, and that one kill is better than anything they did in this one. it doesn’t have to cost a fortune…if it’s a little bit slick, it works.

  100. Are they going to make another movie?

  101. Hell yeah!!!,tommyblah.Keep it slick BUT SICK.Hey there jt,those overpaid,amateur,clueless,music video directing,non fan fuckwits at Platinum Dunes have made way too much money off the latest movie for them not to make a sequel.I beleive they said that once their new Freddy movie comes out they are going to have another “stab” at Friday The 13th for a sequel.Let’s hope that someone from Platinum Dunes reads these pages and takes our rants seriously.(unlikely).GIVE US THE MOVIE THAT WE DESERVE………………….KI,KI,KI,MA,MA,MA.

  102. Did ya’ll not post this before?

  103. Hey Critic…I wanna do something to you…Wink wink ;)

  104. Spreading the word….Someone is impersonating some of us. After some research and lots of waiting…we have realized that it is “T”…The original “T” now will go by the name of ‘The real T” so any posts from “T” as of now will be an imposter. He is a loser who has nothing better to do with his time. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.
    He has imperonated EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now he is making it seem like he is the victim. So beware of this little loser troll.

  105. Ok I got the bluray had to update my new $800.00 top of the line player i’ve only had 6 months, that sucked. Thin could play the movie, but could not get to the killer cut version!!! would start playing the theatrical version! whe to features and couldn’t get it to change. What a waste, I mean if it’s that hard to fiqure out
    unlike dvd’s then for get it! Blu Ray has been nothing but trouble.

  106. Beautiful DVD cover, especially the one on the right! Sorry to cause drama, but this Captain_Brandon guy many rightfully attack, I know. He is a xenophobe who’d made several disgusting comments about many European peoples, and my friend & I chased him off youtube (if he was innocent he would’nt have fled, no?). And yes, he does consider himself the coolest since sliced bread and go on a tangent about his (lack of a) life. I do wish you bonne chance for trying to learn Spanish & French, because with your ignorance you’ll need it. “It should be “Jason putain regles!” like that (with an accent mark on that first e in ‘regles’. Hope that helps!” Charlatan much Mr I-love-google-translation? Putain is the French for whore, idiot. “I used to enjoy comin’ here, but now I’m gonna have to stop it seem’s if everyone is gonna be ignorant as all fuck.” Could that have been any less coherant? Pun intended, you’re too ignorant to know what “ignorant” means so quite over using it. “you sound like a big pu**Y captain_brandon1980 man. Whining little C*NT!” He IS a whining cunt, he really is (and a hypocritical, bigot one). And he needs to get laid, fast! Somebody buy the dude a prostitute.

    Sorry guys, but I really had to make resonses to these comments. Ciao.

  107. Lola, leave the horrid little psycho-man alone and don’t make yourself the same level as him. And I hate horror films so I will get off here fast! XD
