A 'Friday The 13th' Reboot Might Be In The Works, Again

- Page 1

You'd be hard-pressed to find a modern horror franchise more iconic than Friday The 13th. Alongside its peers in the Halloween and Nightmare on Elm St. franchises, the multi-movie horror series was one of the biggest names in the "slasher" genre for decades.

Den of Geek

The movies focus on undead killer Jason Voorhees (except in the first movie, where his mother's the killer), who wanders around in his signature hockey mask (that he only gets in the third movie), stalks the promiscuous teenagers who frequent Camp Crystal Lake, and brutally murders them. It's a simple formula, but man did it work.

The franchise yielded a whopping 10 mainline movies, during which Jason went to Manhattan, Hell, and ultimately, space (because of course he went into space). Not only that, but he even took on other famed horror villain Freddy Krueger in Freddy Vs. Jason, and WON.

New Line Cinema

However, the last time we heard from the masked murderer was in 2009, when Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes company released a remake of the original movie, simply titled Friday the 13th. It was, as a coworker described it, "literally the worst Friday the 13th movie, and we live in a world where Jason X happened."

Yeah, this was a thing.New Line Cinema

Well, it looks like Jason might be due to rise again, as Universal has been dropping some hints at a return to the franchise...

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of

'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
