Professor Tracey's Horror Movie Junkie Chronicles - Friday The 13th Remake

The remake of My Bloody Valentine was absolutely horrible, even in 3-D. Gory for no good reason, pointless nudity, dumb-ass story that was completely predictable. Completely inferior to the original cult hit. I missed the entire Afterdark Horrorfest because wack-ass Indiana refused to carry the films, so I am in serious horror movie withdrawal.

The original Friday the 13th which I saw on Friday the 13th, many, many, many years ago is a personal favorite that really scared me at the time. I don't expect to be scared at this point, but I have hopes of a decent telling of a well-worn horror tale. It will be fun to see this film on Friday the 13th.

the new Fri the 13th remake contains story elements from the original 3 films (jason the deformed youth, mrs voorhees, jason gets hockey mask)

also they don't shy away from sex
in this one -- so it'll be good to see that again. Because in proper slasher films, sex = death.

also, it has scrumptious Jared Padelecki showing the pecs.

also they were cool enough to name the sheriff character 'Sheriff Bracke' - after my buddy Peter Bracke who wrote the extensive & fab coffee table book :
"Crystal Lake Memories" detailing the films from its origin to Freddy vs. Jason.

I look forward to this one.

Ps --
I HATED the Rob Zombie "Halloween" remake with the cast of teen girls with ZERO personality compared to the original Annie, Linda and Laurie.

They need to let the old school horrors RIP. It seems like whenever they try to remake them they're horrible. I couldn't stand the Robie Zombie Halloween either. It didn't even follow the original storyline.

Me and my brother already said we're going to go see this!
