UPDATED! The clip is back!
Get it here y’all! The Platinum Dunes Friday panel at the San Diego Comic Con (which I vow to attend next year) ran a quick demo clip from the upcoming Friday remake and in spite of the shitty sound and dark and out of focus picture, you can see enough.
I’m going to have to keep an eye on this clip throughout the day. You never know when it’s going to get yanked from Youtube. As for the looks of it, can’t say that I’m disappointed in any way. I’ve been vocally opposed to remakes and you’d think that I’d be REALLY pissed off about my favorite slasher franchise getting the treatment but the way I see it, the guy has been to space. You just can’t make it any more outrageous than that and even if you change the fundamental pieces of Jason Voorhees, the producers have changed him enough throughout the sequels that nothing you do can possibly be any worse than having him mutate back to a child under a torrent of New York City sewer sludge. So this is just another sequel to me and it’s looking pretty good.
