Remake Radar: Friday the 13th

friday_the_thirteenth2009

Welcome to the first edition of Remake Radar 2009, where we take on Hollywood’s penchant for remaking films for better or worse (which is most of the time). This month’s movie:

“Friday the 13th” (1980)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stars: Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King, and Kevin Bacon.

Director: Sean S. Cunningham

Story: In 1957 a kid named Jason Vorhees was drowned at the summer camp at Crystal Lake. In subsequent years two counselors were murdered and the camp caught fire. In the late Seventies the camp was reopened. When new murders occur and a mysterious stranger is lurking about, they find that maybe teenagers having sex can lead to death.

What do we know now?: It’s being released next month! A generation of college kids, long removed from the summer camp days of yore, travel out to the abandoned Crystal Lake summer camp for a weekend of booze, sex, and drugs. When a guy shows up looking for his missing sister the body count isn’t too far behind.
