    Yup. That's EXACTLY what it looks like. I mean it's directed by the same guy who remade Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and this movie looks no different. I mean I'll wait and see for myself when it comes out, but I'm not too excited for this. I mean, the trailer wasn't that good.

    See, in this case I don't mind it, because with TCM they took a completely original horror movie with oodles of nightmarish atmosphere and tried to turn it into a run of the mill slasher film where Leatherface is an unstoppable killing machine. Compared to TCM, F13 has always been rather one dimensional. How could they possibly make the franchise worse than sending Jason to Manhattan or into space? Or turning him into "The Hidden"? F13 is best when it's kept to the basics: Camp Crystal Lake, Jason (the real Jason!), teens having sex, and a body count. As long as those 4 things are in the mix, then it's going to please the fans. F13 is like Coca-Cola: You don't fuck with the formula! :D

    Pepsi is a company with deep rooted insecurity and identity issues. For example, Coca Cola has had the same logo for probably 100 years, but how many times has Pepsi changed theirs during our lifetime? They can't decide what the hell they want!

    I agree with this statement completely. I'm a huge Jason fan and this isn't exciting me a lot. He looks cool and the deaths will probably be neat but it has me worried. I like how they threw some random creepy old lady in there with an accent... She would've fit perfectly in Texas.

    even though remake isnt faithful to the original, i still like b/c its one of those turn-off-your-brain fun slasher films. it has some clever humor mixed, and the deaths are pretty cool. im not saying its better than the original...no way...but i think it is fun. but by no means a good movie.

    if you a horror fan, Black Christmas is a manditory viewing. Great slasher film also

    Not to get too off topic but I thought the Black Christmas remake was very well done, a lot of folks hate it but I dont see why. It had an old school vibe to it, not like the original, but just different than most remakes. I cant really put my finger on it, it just didnt look like most of the other remakes, but I just dont know how to defend it with words, it was just fuckin good! The original was good but its for me I have revisited the remake more, and I havent done that with any others, except maybe the fly

    I watched it because it was meant to be gory and found it lacking.
    Yeah, I've been meaning to for a while. The remake actually put me off a bit. I might wait till I get blu-ray and get it for that.
    The character were stupid for a start. They were paper thin and far from interesting. I found them predictable.
    The killer wan't scary and his story was almost comical. The music didn't help the film either. It made it feel like it was making fun of itself and as far as I know the original was more serious toned.
    I wasn't impressed by it.

    [​IMG] Black Xmas remake was piece of shit. Even if all the girls got naked in it & rubbed pussies it still would have sucked.

    I'm sorry. But if all the girls in that movie got together and rubbed pussies, there's no way it would have sucked.
