The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ More Friday the 13th Reboot Reassurances

Honey Buzz ~ More Friday the 13th Reboot Reassurances

As if there haven't been enough reboots and remakes in the horror news reels these days, there's one in particular that much like its superhuman "Even when I die, I don't!" villain keeps popping up at the most inopportune moments.

About a year ago, classic horror fans flipped the fuck out at the announcement that there would be yet another remake of Friday the 13th, and then again when it was rumored that this new attempt could end up being a found footage film. 

Pictured: My "found footage" rumor reaction.
We breathed a collective sigh of relief when a delay in production pushed back the movie entirely and scrapped any plans the producers may have started. Paramount’s rights are reportedly due to expire within the next few years, but I'm personally not sure that expiration necessarily calls for a new film... However, some new information about the newest instalment is supposed to make us naysayers feel better about the whole thing. I think.

Producer Brad Fuller recently sat down with Esquire and went on record saying that there’s a plan in place for filming on the new reboot to begin later this year. 
The project is currently slated to release in theaters on May 13th, 2016, and Fuller says he wants to begin filming this summer. According to Fuller, the idea is to have cameras rolling while the weather is still nice and it’s easy to take over a camp for cinematic slaughtering purposes.
He also says that while it’s still uncertain whether the next installment will tie in with his 2009 film, since they’re currently finalizing a direction to go with the story and hiring “two or three different” writers within the next two weeks, it will definitely not follow the found footage trend.


Fuller also insists the Friday the 13th reboot won’t be a low-budget flick like other recent Platinum Dunes’ films. He maintains that getting a horror movie right when it comes to blood and gore takes time and money:
“You can’t do a great kill quickly. It takes time and the blood levels. You know, every time there’s a drop of blood you have to change their wardrobe and shower people off. You can’t rush that to get it right.”

For right now, I'm sitting firmly in the "still can't give a shit" area of Camp Crystal Lake. Call me when you have an original idea, plz. 



Friday the 13th is expected to stalk theatres May 13th, 2016.
