Do you know what’s worse than the possibility of another “Friday the 13” flick? Another “found footage” movie. Put the two together and you’re ready for the end of the genre. Wasn’t this sort of collaboration predicted in The Bible? I think it’s in there somewhere.
Proving that they have absolutely no idea what horror fans want these days, the producers behind the proposed “Friday the 13th” sequel are seriously thinking about making the next installment a “found footage” picture. Apparently they haven’t seen “Halloween: Resurrection.” In short: It’s a terrible idea. All the way around.
From what I’ve read, producers are presently taking pitches for the follow-up to director Marcus Nispel’s seriously misguided remake. There’s also a chance that this whole “found footage” report could be nothing more than a stupid internet rumor. Then again, it may not. To be honest, I’m really trying not to think about it.
It’s currently unknown when the “Friday the 13th” sequel will hit the big screen. If producers decide to venture into the well-worn “found footage” genre, then this could be the end of the franchise as we know it. I’m actually not so sure that’s a bad thing.
