Friday The 13th Part 2 Remake Moving Forward

friday the 13th Friday The 13th Part 2 Remake Moving ForwardWhat could be more appropriate now that we’re in October than horror movie news?

And yes, that’s right, I said a remake of the second, not the first, Friday the 13th movie.

New Line studio has put writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift on the job. These are the same guys who wrote the entertaining, if not definitive in conclusion Freddy vs Jason movie.

Everyone else is calling this a remake of the original film, but it’s not.


In the original film released back in 1980, the killer turned out to be Jason Vorheees’ mother, with Jason appearing briefly right at the very end of the film. The second movie, which came out a year later was the first full-on Jason-with-a-machete flick. It didn’t take place in Camp Crystal Lake (the setting of the original film) but at the camp right next to it. This movie places Jason at the camp, so it seems to me it’s much closer to the second story than the first.

There wasn’t much substance to these original films, so I can’t really get too fired up on an anti-remake tirade. I don’t even know if “remake” qualifies as a term for this… maybe “re-hash” is a more accurate description.

Anyway, it looks like they’re trying to fast track it to beat the impending strike that I’m sick to death of hearing about. Oh, and if it means anything, Michael Bay is one of the producers on the project.

  1. They need to stop with remakes there is no more room for new maovies. Probally that is why Holywood is going on a strike.

  2. Not surprised that Michael Bay is one of the producers. His production company (or one of them) was behind the Chainsaw remake. Wonder what horror remake will be next for him?

  3. Maybe we could start a pool and see who wins. :-)

  4. Not a bad idea. :-) I could be wrong, but he may have been involved in The Hitcher and/or The Hills Have Eyes remakes as well.

  5. I guess he needs to keep busy between mega-blockbusters, LOL.

    Vic

  6. Well……. I kind of have mixed feelings about remaking Horror films….. They might be better in some cases like i would have never seed the original Phantom of the Opera… if it hadnt been for the remake…..
    i have no clue

  7. Kristina,

    I’m not ALWAYS opposed to remakes. It’s just that most of the time they’re awful, pointless and just an excuse to cash in on a known movie.

  8. There should be a sequel remake of jason cause me and all jason fans want more.

  9. This movie sounds ok, Jason in the snow, neat.
    After this one though can they please make
    Freddy vs Jason vs Myers. People have been
    talking about this since before the first
    FvsJ movie, well even back in the 80′s this
    was a topic of conversation about who would win
    who was the most badass, etc. This movie should
    be made. Id get Robert Englund to play Freddy one
    more time. Freddy would use Myers sort of the way he
    used Jason, Myers scares people, Freddy regains power
    but just when Freddy thinks all is going to plan, his old
    rival Jason comes to pay Freddy a visit, but he first has to deal with “pure evil” “the boogeyman” Michael Myers.
    Then all heck breaks loose. Lots of beer drinking,sex active teens get caught up in all this mayhem.

  10. Another Jason flick hell yeah, bring it on.

  11. I would like to see this part two remake..Other web sites are saying he wants snow. Jason in a snowball fight. It dont matter I wanna see more Jason my favorite horror/slasher movie of all time. I dont understand how ppl dont like them. I liked to see derek mears come back as Jason, he made that did a good job playing him. Kane Hodder was is and will be Jason Voorhees tho he brought it to life when he came in. Jason Voorhees lives forever

  12. HOW ABOUT A REINVISION TO BRING BACK THE FRANCHISE SEEING AS THE FRIDAY THE 13TH 2009 REMAKE WAS A A BIT OF A FAIL ALTHOUGH I DO LIKE MICHAEL BAY AS A DIRECTOR AND THE CHORIOGRAPHY IN THE MOVIE HE MADE.

    WHY NOT MAKE IT ION THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE 2007 ROB ZOMBIE REMAKE OF HALLOWEEN WHICH I THOUGHT WAS A GREAT REMAKE AND BETTER THAN THE CLASSIC AS IT PORTRAYED MICHAEL MYERS AS A HUMAN AND NOT A UNSTOPPABLE ROBOT DEMON THAT NEVER DIES.

    MY IDEA WOULD HAVE TO BE FOR AN EXAMPLE JASON VOORHEES IS A SHY AND MENTALLY HANDICAPPED BOY LIKE ANY OTHER BOY IN LOOKS BUT HASNOT GOT THE COPACITY TO MAKE SOUND JUDGEMENT AND IS GULLABLE AND EASILY PERSUADED, HE IS PUSHED BY THE OTHER KIDS (TEENAGERS) IN THE CAMP SAY ABOUT 13 TO 15 YRS OLD. TO DRIVE THE ONE OF THE MORE PUSHY CAMP LEADERS CAR’S AND TAKE IT AROUND THE LAKE SIDE TRACK ON THE EDGE OF THE WOODS FOR A JOY RIDE, AS A SORT OF DARE AND INITIATION BY THE BULLIES IN THE CAMP HE’S BEING MENTALY BULLIED TO DO THIS AND THE CAMP LEADERS ARE TOO BUSY GETTING DRUNK/HIGH TO EVEN NOTICE AND HE LOOSES CONTROLL OF THE CAR AND CRASHES INTO THE LAKE SEVERAL INJURING HIS FACE. THE OTHER KIDS RUN OFF LEAVIG HIM TRAPPED AND ON THE BRIK OF DEATH BUT SOMEHOW HE MANAGES TO CRAWL TO A HUT LEFT IN THE WOODS WHERE HE FINDS A FIRST AID KIT AND SOME OLD TINS OF FOOD ALONG WITH VARIOUS OTHER ITEMS AN OLD HOCKEY MASK AND A MACHETE WHICH HE USES TO OPEN THE TINS OF FOOD. HE LOST ALL SENSE OF THE PAST HIS FAMILY TIES AS HIS MEMORY WAS IMPARED BY THE ACCIDENT BUT HE HUNG ON TO THE MEMORY OF THE ACCIDENT AND THE FACT EVERYONE WAS SAYING HOW THEY SHOULD LEAVE HIM TO DIE THERE.HE ALSO REMEMBERS THE CAMP LEADERS FAILING TO REALIZE AND DUE TO HIS MEMORY LOST HE STAYS THERE USING HIS HUNTING SKILLS HE LEARNED AT THE CAMP ARCHERY,HUNTING RABBITS AND SKINNING THEM SNARRING ANIMALS AND HE IS ABLE TO LIVE OF THE LAND FOR SOME YEARS UNAWARES HE HAD A FAMILY THE POLICE LOOKED FOR 6 YEARS BUT NEVER FOUND HIM AND JASON NEVER STRAYED FAR ENOUGH FROM THE AREA HE LIVES TO FIND ANYONE. HE SUFFERS EVERY DAY FROM PAIN AND NIGHTMARES AND THE THOUGHT OF THE PEOPLE WHO LEFT HIM AND FAILED TO NOTICE HE WAS GONE. WHEN ONE DAY HE LOOSES IT UNABLE TO SPEAK FROM HIS INJURIES HE GROWLS REACHES DOWN PUTS ON HIS MASK AND GRABS THE MACHETE AS HE REMEMBERS WHERE THE CAMP IS AND NOW HE’S OUT FOR REVENGE HE’S USED TO PAIN AND HE’S FAR BIGGER BUILT NOW ALL HE KNOWS NOW IS HOW TO KILL SOMETHING AND THAT’S WHAT HE PLANS ON DOING TO EVERYTHING THAT HE COMES ACROSS THAT BREATHES. YOU COULD HAVE HIM AS A SKILLED ARCHER AND A TRAPPER HUNTING PEOPLE IN THE WOODS JUMPING OUT OF TREES AND HUGGING ON TO TREE TRUNKS CAMOFLAGED COVERED IN MOOD LIKE IN PREDATOR. HE COULD HAVE A WHOLE POLICE STATION WHO TRACK HIM DOWN SO HE TURNS THE TABLES ON THEM AND HUNTS THEM INSTEAD AFTER ONE SURVIVOR FROM THE CAMP RAISES THE ALARM THERE’S A KILLER AT THE CAMP. BUT MAKE IT SO HE’S LUCKY NOT INVINCEABLE MAKE IT HE’S ALWAYS LUCKY NOT TO DIE AS HIS STRENGTH AND PAIN THRESHOLD ARE FAR HIGHER THAN THE AVERAGE MAN DUE TO HIS MENTAL CONDITION MAKE HIM PHYSCOLOGICALY ALTERED BY THE CRASH ENOUGH TO BECOME A MONSTER.

    • SORRY LOADS OF SPELLING ERRORS THERE

      “SEVERAL INJURING HIS FACE” SUPPOSED TO SAY SEVERELY INJUSRING HIS FACE

      “COVERED IN MOOD” SUPPOSSED TO SAY MUCOVERED IN MUD

  13. DONE IT AGAIN DAMN KEYBOARD LOL “COVERED IN MUD” WAS WHAT IT SHOULD SAY.
    FINISHED NOW SO CAN’T MAKE ANYMORE ERRORS IF I’M NOT WRITING, LMAO :)

  14. First yes more jason please and second i think u should take the story u just told and sell it as a screenplay with a different name because that sounds like a horror movie i want to watch. but jason should never change.although part 2 and and 3 are my favorites and their nothing like tthe others
