Jason is back. Again.

I have to grudgingly admit that I like the poster campaign for the new Friday the 13th.

Sure, it is very heavy on nostalgia. Instead of trying to create something new that was specific to this movie they settled for using images and concepts that the earlier films made famous, only more polished and thus DEAD ON THE INSIDE! Which is, now that I think about it, probably quite representative of what the movie will be like.

Still, the Friday films were successful and they did leave behind some very iconic and effective stuff for the marketing of the new film to use. And, since the reboot probably lacks any redeeming features that weren’t simply taken from what came before, this is probably the right way to handle the posters.

  1. Oh holy jesus fucking christ, when is hollywood (or whoever) gonna stop rehashing the same old tired franchises for the umpteenth time?

  2. I dont mind bringing back the 80s,
    As long as they do it rite!!
    No more loud rock music , no more comedy,
    do it old school and this will work!
    If I want comedy Il go see a comedy
    I want the horror we had back in the 80s,
