Freddy vs Jason 2
— Posted by Rodney
If you thought the fight between the two most infamous killers in the horror genre is over, think again. It seems that New Line Cinema is planning on working on the sequel to the 2003 horror film.
This news is exactly why I was not looking forward to the upcoming ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ remakes. Why remake two franchises that AREN’T dead in the first place? People thought this of ‘Rob Zombie’s Halloween’ this year, but I had no problem with that remake. The ‘Halloween’ series was dead in my eyes once I saw the lead heroine, Jamie Lee Curtis get killed effortlessly in the first ten minutes, and when Busta Rhymes ninja kicked Michael Myers in the face in the last installment. The series was in NEED of a reboot.
‘Freddy vs Jason’ was a box office hit, and even though it was not worth the ten year wait since fanboys/girls saw Freddy’s glove emerge from the ground at the end of ‘Jason goes to Hell,’ it still made people talk, and all these rumors and speculations we have heard over the past four years about a potential sequel would not be happening if the fans weren’t expecting (and wanting) another gruesome battle between the two villains.
So am I alone on this issue? Am I the only one who thinks remaking these classic franchises is a little premature? Tell me what you think.
