Today marks 11 years since Friday the 13th was the last in theaters


Between 1980 and 1989, Jason Voorhees (or his mother, who technically started things in the 80s) became very good at cutting off campers and unsuspecting counselors. the Friday the 13th The franchise produced a movie almost every year, making eight movies in those nine years. Jason, through various incarnations and mutations, killed 85 people if we combine Part 2, Part III, The final chapter, Jason lives, The new blood Y Jason takes Manhattan. You know, the movies where Jason is really the killer? Now, however, as of today, 11 years have passed, the longest gap between films in franchise history, since F13 The movie came to the big screen.

I mean, I bet you can believe it. The last time we saw Jason in action was in 2009, when the disappointing and / or underestimate Friday the 13th Restarting from Platinum Dunes honored us briefly with their presence. That movie, when it came out, while a financial success, raising $ 93 million against a $ 19 million budget, was treated warmly by critics. Obviously it wasn't good enough to revitalize the franchise, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this now, right? And although ideas were launched on how to continue since the restart, nothing came true.

If you are a fan of the franchise, this has to be disappointing news. Between the lack of a strong critical reception of the new version and the ongoing legal battle that has otherwise consumed the series in the form of a movie and video game, there has not been much good news for Voorhees clan fans. While the court case between the original director Sean Cunningham and the original writer Victor Miller is really entering the court phase soon (actually, literally today), a verdict could still be months or even years away.

What annoyance. Let's take this time to remember all the memories we can have with the series. I remember renting with love Jason lives Many times, always laughing at how Jason was revived by lightning thanks to Tommy Jarvis. In fact, I missed some of the middle tickets, but I've always been more Hallowe'en boy anyway. I really wouldn't mind a Friday the 13th/ /Hallowe'en Cross. They already tried something like that once and what is the worst that could happen? Fans, at this point, will literally take everything they can get.
