    Probably the biggest news in the horror film world as of late is Variety's announcement that Tarantino would be meeting with New Line Cinema in talks of directing the next FRIDAY THE 13TH film. Many people seem to be on the fence regarding this news, so lets just see exactly where everyone stands...

    I'll fall to the floor in a state of shock if it happens....I'll also be first in line to buy a ticket! Let's face it: QT would bring big names, great music, and a sense of fun without being self-mocking. Let 'er rip!

    I'll see any new Friday, but I just wanna see Jason return to the camp and slaughter a bunch of dumb kids in the most horrendous ways imaginable. Nice and simple. Enough of the series trying to "go in a new direction". It's just Friday the 13th for Pete's sake.

    I wanted to vote for: "When are people going to stop tacking Tarrantino's name on the end of projects just for publicity purposes" - but it's not there.

    I haven't seen any evidence that he could offer much to the Slasher genre. But then, I don't for one second believe this has the remotest possibility of happening. I vote OTHER.

    Judging by the way horror films are being made in the US right now (PG 13 and all), the only thing that would ensure a decent entry at this point is if the French made it, or someone in Asia.

    I would watch a new Friday film anyway but with someone like Tarantino involved it would have to be the ULTIMATE Fridy the 13th Movie.

    I think Tarrantino directing a Friday the 13th movie is a dumb idea. Sure, it'll sell tickets, but really! I haven't seen anything in his previous movies that shows that he has what it takes to make a decent horror movie. The last thing this series needs is to be quirky and hip. There's a bigger chance of Carpenter doing the next Halloween, and that won't happen either.

    I think it's a waste of time for QT. I'd much rather him do something else.

    I just want to see a new film, whether it's done by QT or not. I'd also like to see a new Nightmare flick as well.

    I would watch any new friday movie, even if it's crap like Jason X or Jason goes to hell... About QT, well, that sure would be interesting to see what he would do with it, while at the same time i'd be afraid he would go aroung changing too much. Maybe it's just me, but i find he's been doing movie going quite fast, action-packed. Friday the 13th movies should not be going fast, as most horror movies, and specially slasher movies - no big shoot out like kill bill, natural born killer, or from dusk till dawn. I'm afraid he would make Jason as a martial artist...

    Here an idea: Jason vs The Bride...

    If I had to rate every Friday Movie it would go like this:

    Part 1: 9/10
    Part 2: 7/10
    Part 3: 4/10
    Part 4: 8.5/10
    Part 5: 8/10
    Part VI: 9.5/10
    Part VII: 8.5/10
    Part VIII: 6/10
    JGTH: 7/10 (Did make an interesting Horror just not F13th material)
    Jason X: 5.5/10 (Started off great and has a few moments but it was just alien)
    Freddy vs. Jason: 9.5/10 (New Lines Best attempt yet)

    PI'm hoping QT's Jason Movie can get a 10/10 from me plus regarding a new NOES flick I really want to see the prequel and feel they should get on with it Bob's not getting any younger.

    If QT gets his hands on this project we will likely see Jason doing Martial arts,High CGC effects etc.Friday needs a good script and go back to Camp period IMHO,Friday can do without QT.

    I'd watch any new FRIDAY flick, but Tarantino is the WRONG director.
    They should offer the next sequel to Joseph Zito (FRIDAY 4 and THE PROWLER).

    I don't think QT will be accepting anyways, so I'm not gonna vote for that, although it would be interesting. I still think somebody else should do it though as they can't really fuck up this franchise. It's been tampered with so many times it just doesn't matter anymore. On another note, I'm up for any Friday film and can't wait to see another installment. I don't really care if it's back at Crystal Lake, Hell, Space, fuckin' travelling freakshow for all I care! I'll check it out NO MATTER WHAT (as I'm sure we all will, don't you love guaranteeing a studio their profits over a movie that will most likely not be that good)!

    To be honest if Quentin don't want to do Ultimate Jason movie I would really want to see Freddy vs. Jason 2 instead but if he does do it then they should definatly get a nightmare on elm street prequelk on the go and get Wes Craven to direct.

    There hasn't been a decent FRIDAY THE 13TH since part 8... 9 was unbearable, and 10 was a piece of shit.

    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, on the other hand, has faired pretty well over the years... NEW NIGHTMARE was a strong finish, in my opinion.

    Wes Craven's A New Nightmare is a masterpiece. Great movie with a very original direction for a faltering franchise. It's definitely the best in the series (minus the original of course, with which it is right on par). A Craven directed prequel to NOES would be excellent, but I think Robert Englund is too old for that. They also should not do that if Craven objects to directing, although I don't think he would if all the right pieces were in place for it. Still, I don't see that happening either. I'll just be happy with another shitty Jason flick!

    I can't stand Tarantino's films. If he did a F13 film, I'd simply pass on it altogether.
