'Friday the 13th' RETURNS on Friday the 13th

You just can't keep a horror franchise down; as Jason Voorhees will once again terrorize sinners on Friday the 13th, 2015!

Though fellow reporter Greg and I's attempt to get through every single Friday the 13th movie has long since failed (the horror franchise and particularly Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning broke Greg), the horror franchise itself refuses to give up as Bloody Disgusting reports that Jason Voorhees will terrorize cinemas on Friday March 13, 2015. For those doing the math (including Jason's appearance in Freddy vs. Jason), yes this would be the 13th movie of Friday the 13th.


No word on if it'll be a sequel to the 2009 reboot from Platinum Dunes, a new reboot, or if they'll go back to the original and make a sequel based off it ala Texas Chainsaw (2013). All that's truly known of the project currently is the release date and the fact that Paramount once again completely owns the rights to the franchise again (Warner Brothers inherited the property when they bought New Line Cinema. Since June of this year, they forfeited their share of the rights).


My personal thoughts on the 2009 remake? The film suffers what happened to later Friday the 13th movies: you couldn't help but root for Jason more than his victims. At least in the first six you could root for a handful, or the entire cast. In the remake, you just hoped Jason would end the whole lot of them. It also suffered from Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) syndrome (which isn't surprising since it was the same director): you couldn't see a damn thing at times given how dark the movie was. The only redeeming parts were again Jason and the way he lured his victims to Camp Crystal Lake via legend of the weed farm, retaining the speed he once had in previous Friday movies, and my personal favorite: his fondness for traps. Of course, stuntman Derek Mears' performance helped too.


Anyway, hopefully whomever works on the project can bring some flare to the cast, story, and of get a make-up crew that makes great gore effects. Some "new blood" to speak. Though no matter what, it doesn't change the fact that Jason Voorhees LIVES again:
