For fans of the horror classic, you’ll get to relive the gore and blood on a weekly basis, as Friday the 13th will be moving to an unknown as-of-yet network. Though it’s a TV show, and the series has been rebooted to varying degrees of success, the new effort will still maintain some of the DNA of the original, well-regarded iteration.

The director of the 1980 original will be the executive producer, and the premise supposedly will have Jason in different eras, chopping people up and whatnot, which means he’ll either be a time-traveler (totally lame) or it will be an anthology (less totally lame).

The president of Horror, Inc. Robert Barsamian, another producer, offered up this gibberish non-information about the project:

“Expect the show to take viewers in some exciting new directions that we’re confident will not only excite existing fans of Friday The 13th but also attract new audiences to the situations and characters that inhabit the small town of Crystal Lake.”

He used “excite” twice in the same sentence.

It’s about time someone was courageous enough to call bullshit on the ending of Jason Takes Manhattan. And also compare it to Dr. Strangelove.

You can’t keep a good murder-junkie-corpse-monster down. Jason Voorhees is set to rise again in yet another Friday the 13th film. Exhibitor Relations reports that Paramount is moving forward with a reboot. This film will have no relation to the Marcus Nispel reboot from a few years back but tell an entirely new story. New in the sense that it will still involve Jason putting the pointy end into young people.

The release date is set for Friday, March 13th, 2015. It will also mark the thirteenth film in the series, meaning we should see something special. My money is on Jason’s bar mitzvah.

The post Save The Clock Tower! And These Other Movie Landmarks appeared first on Screen Junkies.

For movie fans, their favorite films aren’t just entertainment, they are a sense of comfort. They love the characters and the worlds created around them. In fact, sometimes the locations where the movies were shot are so compelling that they jump off the screen and become characters as well. Many times they are lost to history as industry grows and the locations are torn down. But if cabin where Martha Washington cut a triple queef is allowed to remain, there are certain film landmarks that deserve preservation as well. In fact, at this very moment, people are fighting to save an preserve the cemetery chapel from Night of the Living Dead.

We’ve already lost many a great one. Please study the locations below so that we don’t lose another.

East 95th Street Bridge – The Blues Brothers

If you’ve ever sat in wait while a drawbridge raises, you’ve likely felt compelled to floor it and jump the sucker. If not, you’re lying to yourself. The Blues Brothers actually got to give in to this compulsion and take air over the East 95th Street Bridge in Chicago. Next time I’m in Chicago, I’m trying this. I’ll also try a Superdawg.

Chotchkie’s – Office Space

The nightmare of hellish food service chains was perfectly served up by Office Space’s Chotchkie’s. And though it was depicted as a place of misery, it’s also home to some of the movie’s more memorable scenes. Like Lassie, Chotchkie’s is actually a fictional bitch. The real restaurant that subbed for it is the now closed Austin’s Alligator Grill. I guess the loss of Initech really hurt profits.

The Clocktower – Back To The Future

Though the Hill Valley Clock Tower featured in Back to the Future was actually a set built specifically for the movie, fans were welcome to visit it along with other locations from the film at Universal Studios. We’ve almost lost the cherished Clock Tower a few times. Once when lightning hit it in the 1950′s, then again when it was damaged by fire at the theme park in both the 1990′s and 2008. Someone needs to put this thing on 24 hour watch.

The post 7 Mistakes Made By ‘Friday The 13th’ Characters appeared first on Screen Junkies.

There are certain mistakes that characters in Friday the 13th movies make over and over again. Each time, it results in someone being hacked into bloody lumps. Though they are just acting according to human nature, they’re making it pretty easy for Jason Voorhees to yank their guts out. Too easy. I’m sure the monotony is getting to him. He just doesn’t decapitate with the same childish fervor.

Please read on, and if you ever find yourself in a Friday the 13th film, learn from the mistakes of others. The life you save will be your own.

Ignoring Locals

If you’re new to an area, it’s common practice to ask a local which restaurant or bar they recommend. So why would you ignore them when they warn you not to go into the woods? Granted, they are sometimes vague with their warnings, but if I stop in at a diner and a slack-jawed yokel warns me to stay away from Camp Blood because “it’s HIS camp,” and folks go missing there, I’m inclined to listen. Sorry, gang. Camping trip’s over. Let’s backtrack to that Dave & Buster’s we passed.

Getting Wasted

Camping wouldn’t be half as much fun without drugs and alcohol. But these need to be enjoyed in moderation. You need to keep your wits about you. What if a wolf or bear or hockey mask-adorned living corpse were to attack your campsite? What then? No great escape was ever made by running in a wobbly line.

‘Friday the 13th’ Sequel Is Dead – Not Happening http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/friday-the-13th-sequel-is-dead-not-happening/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/friday-the-13th-sequel-is-dead-not-happening/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Last we heard from Brad Fuller, he and Platinum Dunes were not sure what was going to happen with Friday the 13th 2: The Squeakquel. Yesterday on Twitter Fuller announced, "it is dead - not happening." No further explanation was provided as Fuller chose to not use his remaining 113 characters, but it can be assumed this stems from Platinum Dunes's desire to move away from the horror genre.Still, it comes as a surprise though considering the cash the remake raked in. And it's strange to think of a world without a never-ending string of Friday the 13th sequels. They've been a part of life as long as I can remember. Like my effeminate throwing ability and the constant taunting from my peers. (Bloody Disgusting)

Studios have searched the corners of the globe to make movies such as The Ring, Quarantine, and Let Me In. But there is one nation that has been left unexplored -- Canada. I've stumbled upon the trailer for a Canadian horror film so ghastly and terrifying that it will make you LOSE. YOUR. MIND. There's no release date yet for this northern gem but I'm sure it's going to be packed full of either sh*t or danger. My gut is tellin' me danger. In honor of today being Friday the 13th, I present Sexman VS. Jason Part 2. Make sure you watch all the way to the end.
