New Still And Official Synopsis

In this re-imagining of the classic horror film, Clay searches for his missing sister in the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins behind moss-covered trees. And that’s not the only thing lying in wait under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has, with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they’ve entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history-the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete…Jason Voorhees.

  1. Ch Ch Ch Ha Ha Ha

  2. I dig. Seems straight to the point. Can\’t wait.

  3. Very cool/creepy still, and also a fine synopsis. I so can’t wait for February …

  4. They have really made the whole “droopy eye” thing quite noticeable in this one. Creep factor..Plus 10.

  5. I can’t wait for this. I was driving by my local theater last night and saw the HUGE poster outside. Brought shivers and a smile. Can’t freakin’ wait!

  6. Does anyone know hoe in depth they’re gonna get with Pamela’s and young Jason character? I’m almost more excited to what’s gonna happen with Pamela Voorhees than with adult Jason.

  7. I’m sorry. That “hoe” was supposed to be “how”. Guess I should pay closer attention when I’m typing.

  8. this dont seem like a remake at all

  9. Its not a remake its a re-do

  10. Im not digging the wife beater and jacket or even the huge/wide neck but I do like some of the cinematography Ive seen, including this picture. Hope it isnt a rip off of Chainsaw Massacre or a huge letdown.

  11. …This seems very similar to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Remake plot. I gues I shoul’ve known when it said “From the creators of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Reamke.” I hate this film. I love the series…but I really think New Line is trying to wreck it. Jason X? Come on. Let down.

  12. I am pretty excited about seeing the film. The trailer that came out in December is actually scary.
    I am hoping its a fresh take on the saga. I like the Halloween re-imagining (Zombie)and I like what they did with Texas Chainsaw too.

    As for Jason X and also Jason Goes to Hell both sucked in my opinion New Line got a little silly and stupid with the characters.

  13. I’m still worried about MTV co-producing the remake. I can’t stand hip hop music and slang, and don’t want to be annoyed to death by it just trying watch the movie. Hell, MTV single handedly ruined the music industry back in the mid 90’s… so I can’t help but to think they’ll fuck this up too. The movie has such of a risk of being politically correct, I just don’t see it ending up all that great. It will more than likely have the liberal PC stereotype that black people are stronger than whites. Jason will kill the white characters with ease, but the black guy will almost kick Jason’s ass… (like in Jason X). I just really hoped the remake would turn out more like the first four fridays.

  14. Manny, Colin, CJ, and Brooke, I couldn’t agree more. I’m praying this movie turns out good but, I have a gut feeling that it’s gonna suck. It seems too Freddy vs. Jason-ish.

  15. The synopsis sounds good but, how many movies have you seen that the synopsis was great and the movie it’s self sucked. But then again who knows? Maybe the remake will be really good. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover, we’ll just have to wait and see.

  16. After reading the story about the upcoming Friday the 13th film and reading some of the concerns folks are voicing on the internet, including here, I have to agree that I am more than a little skeptical with regards to the potential quality of the movie, thanks to the involvement of MTV. However, I can also see the potential benefit to the Voorhees legacy if the character has been a more humanistic approach and origin.

    For several installments now, we have seen Jason as this sort of super zombie, capable of taking untold amounts of damage and continuing to roll out the carnage. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, at least insofar as the acceptable efforts (2-7 and Freddy Vs. Jason) are concerned. In particular, this presentation of the character worked well for Freddy Vs. Jason because, well, without that mythos supporting his efforts against the master of dreams, Jason stands no chance in a full-out battle.

    However, rendering the character as a more complex and human creature adds the potential of possibly making the character easier to sympathize with. Having a great monster is good for a monster movie, but having a deranged maniac with a child-like sense of right and wrong can be more enjoyable in terms of actual storytelling.

    Here’s hoping that MTV’s primary contribution to the new film is going to be just supplying the fresh T&A that Voorhees is known for hunting down and running through with his expected brutality. After all, I wouldn’t expect much in the depth department from the same people who brought us ‘I Love New York’ and ‘The Real World’.

  17. I really don’t see why MTV had to be involved. You’d think that with Paramount, New Line and Platium Dunes producing the film they’d have more than enough money. It looks like MTV’s involvement is political. Most of the Tv-shows and movies you see anymore seem to have a liberal bias. Apparently the liberals that run Hollywood must think that by making the characters politically correct that some how it will brainwash the viewers into becoming liberal. It’d be nice to see normal people portrayed in films and represented in the entertainment industry for a change.

  18. Brooke, I couldn’t agree more. I fuckin’ hate MTV.
