Make It Stop!

Complaint Dept emailed me this week about a Hellraiser remake in the works and now I read this. First Michael Bay fucks up my favorite childhood cartoon and now he gets his stab at this? I'm so angry I'm shaking. He's going to pump something into it alright.......

By Borys Kit LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Transformers" director Michael Bay is reviving the "Friday the 13th" franchise through his low-budget production company.The remake of the original 1980 horror classic, which turned the villainous Jason into a cultural icon, is being produced for New Line Cinema by Bay's Platinum Dunes banner. Platinum Dunes was also behind the revival of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "The Hitcher."In the original "Friday the 13th," the serial killer made only a brief appearance in the final frames and never killed anyone. Jason didn't even don the famous mask until the third movie. The remake, however, will focus on Jason -- who will wear the mask and kill -- and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake.Damian Shannon and Mark Swift will write the script. They wrote 2003's "Freddy vs. Jason," the killer's last big-screen appearance. That film grossed more than $82 million domestically.

Thats Fucked up,theyre re-doing Friday the 13th, thats Stupid as hell the whole reason why the first movie was good was becuase Jason did'nt technically exist It was just some crazed Lumberjack bitch who went nuts cuase she lost her son, and now they want to make it like the other movies where he is the killer and they have the people who wrote the F VS. J flick wich was pretty dumb at least have someone better then them.
