Friday the 13th Reboot
Pity today’s young film fans, for they’ve never experienced the cheesy joy that was being treated to regular installments of Friday the 13th throughout the ’80s. Between 1980 and 1989, the hockey-masked slasher Jason Voorhees hacked his way through scores of screaming nubile victims in eight films—although by the end of the decade, the franchise had started to teeter between stale and ridiculous, and subsequent attempts to extend or reboot the character’s mythology have failed to draw much of a following. This latest overhaul arrives nearly a decade after the last reboot, which grossed nearly $100 million. Although little is known about the plot, we’re pretty sure it has to do with a guy in a hockey mask chopping sexed-up teens to bits.
