What do you think of when you hear the phrase “Friday the 13th?” Are images of bad luck, black cats and broken glass filling your head? Or do you feel the fear of having a machete wielding maniac chase you through the woods? Whatever it is you do really feel when hearing that, there is no doubt that you HAVE heard that before. And most likely you know a thing or two about the classic series of slasher films. Friday the 13th originally came to theaters in 1980, with Ma Vorhees killing all the promiscuous people at camp Crystal Lake. The series passed the torch to new psycho killer and Ma Vorhees little boy Jason Vorhees in the next installment. And Jason has been brutally killing ever since. Lately though, the series has lost a bit of its luster. And the last incarnation of the character, who “fought” fellow psychotic killer Freddy Kreuger in 2003’s Freddy vs Jason, was a new low point for the series. So what should be done to the franchise? Well, reboot it, of course! And that is exactly what has happened. Jason is getting a makeover for 2009 and will kill again in Friday the 13th. Interested? Well, then check out the new trailer if you haven’t already done so! Feel free to tell us what you think.
