Monday, February 9, 2009 reviews Friday The 13th!

Very interesting review, and it got about what I figured it deserves- a C rating. Beware- heavy spoilers are in the review, but still check it out if you dare!

'Friday the 13th' may be the twelfth film in the series, but it's more of a sequel than a remake. The final showdown between Jason's beloved mother and the lone survivor of the Camp Crystal Lake massacre from the original film are reenacted in the opening credits before the story picks up in the present day. Jason's subsequent murderous rampage has become legend and is recalled amongst a group of five friends on a hike through the woods of New Jersey who are searching for...weed. That's right, according to the nerdy member (and the only one without a girlfriend) there's a hidden supply of cannabis growing near the abandoned Camp Crystal Lake and if they find it they can all be rich. The problem is the plants are protected by an overgrown musclebound half-dead mongoloid wielding a machete who wants to corner the drug market.

Brad Fuller on the unrated Friday The 13th 2009 DVD.

Here's what he had to say and I guess it's good news if the theatrical cut sucks, you know?

We are finishing up on the Unrated DVD this week. That DVD will rock! We have a different cut of movie, that not only has more violence and sex, but it has an additional storyline that is totally different from the movie you will see in theaters. Its not like we just cut a few things differently, the DVD version will feel like a different movie. For those of you who love the theatrical cut, that will also be on the DVD also.

Fan film review: Friday The 31st

Friday The 31st has got to be one of the funnest fan films that I have seen in a very long time. Chris R. Notarile, the director/producer/writer/everything of the movie did something clever- he got Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees in the same place at the same time in a very clever and non-cheesy way. The movie is about John Tate, Michael Myers' nephew, who leaves Haddonfield for New York to escape the horror. While he visits his mother's grave he is watched and followed by Michael. John hits the road with Michael behind him and stops in a small town in New Jersey called Crystal Lake for directions when he runs into Tommy Jarvis who is on the run from Jason Voorhees. All hell breaks loose (literally) when Michael and Jason find one another and fight it out.
