Though this film itself was not remade, the idea itself was recycled into theaters earlier this year, combined with the first two sequels to the series.. summing up what Jason Voorhees is to everyone; The Hockey Masked Killer. I didn't even bother to see this one, nor take part in it.
Makeup artist Tom Savini chose to remake this one is 1990, and for the most part did a good job at either sticking to the story or putting his own twists in the film that actually worked. This version did not set me off, what did it was the 3D one that came out about a year and a half ago, Starring Sid Haig. I know it probably was not his intention to destroy this movie with the ending from another world, but at least say something or protest the idea... i love ya man but you helped with the overkill process!
Bought it, heard some really dumb shit about it, didnt take it out of the shrink wrap, anyone wanna buy it? Tell me, what reason was there to take this name not only for a sequel which had nothing to do with it but to go ahead and actually re make the film; Starring Nick Cannon? In my opinion the best film out of the trilogy of the dead (go Joe Pilato!)
without a doubt the best remake on this list. One of the few that actually showed the savagery put into one's self when in a situation calling for survival. I jumped quite a few times at different parts to this movie as well as appreciate the gore and time put into this. Guess there not ALL bad; with the exception of one of two :)
Films that are in no need of any sort of remake; yet they get one anyways. Ah, the search for more money never ends. Even films put out recently are being remade due to languange issues and the "inconvenience" of subtitles. The sad thing is I know it will Never End.
