Is anyone up for a Friday The 13th movie night?

The concept is very simple, just pick your favorite "Friday The 13th" movie part, and then do you best to watch it on Friday night February 13th.

 -

I'm definitely planning on watching part 2 with Amy Steel and Kirsten Baker. I'm usually all about the original when it comes to movies, but I actually saw part 2 first and didn't see the Bacon original until years later.

 - Friday The 13th

Which part do you dare watch? [Eek!]

When?

Are you waiting for Friday the 13th in February?

Did you see my posting on the social club?

Adrienne King is going to be directing a new movie with....Danielle Harris, Dee Wallace and Heather Langenkamp, and she'll be in it too....it's on the main page of movie web.

Adrienne just emailed me, and said how excited she is about the whole thing.

I definately was planning to watch both Friday the 13th part 1 and part 2 on Feb. 13th.

Wow! So cool. I actually drove on that same road, and was at that Lake and was at that diner and in that town.

It is sad that Laurie Bartram- died last year...she's the one that gets killed by the bow and arrow.

I preordered the Friday the 13th Blu-ray last week and they are promising it by Feb. 3rd.

I wish Part 2 was on Blu-ray, it appears to be released only in Europe for now though. Kind of like "The Goonies" only being released in Europe and Japan....huh?

Okay, I have the original all set to go on Blu-ray and my fav part 2 not Blu, but a must see. Also, I noticed HDNet movies has part 3 to part 8 starting at 8pm est time Friday night.

So my plan is to record them to my DVR and have a Friday the 13th HD extravaganza. Also, don't forget if you get tired, there is another Friday the 13th in March.

Is anyone going to the theater at midnight tonight to watch the new Friday the 13th flick?

You know I saw the previews again for the new Friday the 13th...and I want to know..where in the original did someone have a handgun? I saw a preview with someone shooting someone with a hand gun. Who takes hand guns camping? Maybe a shot gun...but this is what is stupid...Friday the 13th is a slasher movie- Jason never killed anyone with a gun....did he? There were no guns.

They supposedly used Betsy Palmer's voice in the new one, without her consent, and she had a big time problem with that. She has never watched any of the other Friday the 13th movies, she said when she did Friday the 13th, she came up with a background story about herself, and why she was so crazed about her son drowning, and she wants to keep her own story as the reason for what happened...so she doesn't want that ruined by watching the others.

Cindy-I was telling 2 different people about our trip today, it was fun remembering it again, and thinking about how much fun we had. Cindymancini took that picture of me and our other friend on the bridge. I had such a blast. It was fun driving around in the woods and thinking about..that at one time, Jason was running around out there.
The only thing we saw though were a bunch of deer, and a big flock of peac0cks, and we saw a bunch of kids out on canoes in one part of the park.

We did get lost once, it is way back in the woods.

I actually had a guest who stayed here at the B & B, and he told me he went to that Boy Scout camp back in the 60's. He never even knew it was connected to a horror movie.

It is very deja vuish when you go to a place you have seen in a movie...you feel like you have been there before.

I am going to try and watch it tomorrow night. I have 4 B & B couples coming this weekend, so I am going to be busy, but I want to see it.

New one was pretty good I thought. The theater we went to was sold out and they were having to seat people. That's one thing that p!ssess me off about a sold out show. We all go to the trouble to get there early to get good seats only to be asked to scoot over by the theater manager at 11:55 pm because some late azzed people. Needless to say we laughed when they asked us to scoot over. Not bein mean but if you want good seats there's a reason the theater is opened early........

I caught the new Friday the 13th yesterday also. I thought it was pretty decent, but nothing particularly original or genre-bending. The first 10-15 mins. (consisting of 2 flashback sequences) were especially great - full-throttle action - after that, it settles into more conventional slasher territory. I enjoyed it overall.

Has anyone saw the Blu-Ray version of the original yet? I was wanting to hear some things on it before I decided to buy it. I'm really suprised parts 2 and 3 are being released so soon after the original........

Motley-How did Friday the 13th compare to My Bloody Valentine? Since you liked them both, I am curious, because you know I hated My Bloody Valentine, so since you saw it, you can pretty much guess from that-if I would even like Friday the 13th even slightly...what do you think that I would think of it?

I liked Friday the 13th better but you'd probably be better off waiting to rent it because I highly doubt you'd like it.........

Ok.....I had planned on waiting, I just wondered which one was better, or if they were similiar-I did hear that the new one has a ton of nudity in it.

I heard it got ok reviews.

But, my thing about the whole new Friday the 13th ...is why remake the original, and try and change the original...if they are going to make more movies, make sequels- and make them better than the last sequels.

The remake...my son said he read that half way through it Jason has the potato sack on his head, and then towards the end he gets the hockey mask.

The way it originated in the beginning, was what made that all work, and made it become as big as it is. When you cram all that in to 1 movie-then that makes it something totally different.

I watched Friday the 13th part 2 last night. I
have never understood this...

How come Mrs. Voorhees thought Jason drown? If he really didn't?

The beginning of Friday the 13th (the original) starts in 1958- in a flash back scene- where the 2 counselors are killed at the beginning. Then they shut the camp down, then the Christies reopen it, and that's when the movie starts- but that is in 1980- which is 22 years later.

The Jason that pops up and grabs Adrienne King at the end of part 1, is he suppose to be like the ghost of the little boy who died in 1958? I never quite understood that...or if your really not suppose to think about it too deeply, because the more sequels they made- he was immortal.

But, in the first one-it's the mother who's the real killer, so that felt realistic, and then in part 2- Jason is the killer- but I always thought he was real- and had survived, and just lived in the woods all that time. That made it scary to me, that someone was living in the woods waiting to kill people.

When they get in to him being immortal in the other movies...then that takes the scariness out of it, and makes it dumb...that's why I never liked the sequels.

Motley,

It's well worth picking up the Blu-ray. The PQ for the most part is very impressive. There are a few soft scenes here and there, but it doesn't detract too much from the viewing experience.

The extras are all worth watching -- although probably only once.

The 5.1 TrueHD audio is also fairly impressive and adds to the overall atmosphere.

NB -- I don't know whether you're aware of this, but the image has been zoomed in by at least 10%. A lot of people are upset by this, but I can't say that it hindered my viewing of the movie at all.

Here's a Review , highlighting the problem.
