In addition to the fantastic Watchmen trailer, the Scream Awards played host to another trailer debut - Friday the 13th. This is a shorter, less-violent version than the one shown at Comic-Con, but it's officially online for our viewing pleasure. I don't care that this is a remake of a classic horror franchise, this looks good, damn good. That finishing shot in this trailer really sums up the intensity in this - it looks like it'll really ramp up the horror genre in a way we haven't seen in a while. I think that's partially due in part to the performance of Derek Mears as Jason, but we'll see more of that later. For now, enjoy this teaser.
Watch the first teaser trailer for Friday the 13th:
Friday the 13th is directed by ex-music video director Marcus Nispel, of 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Pathfinder previously. The screenplay for this reboot was penned by writing partners Damian Shannon and Mark Swift of Freddy vs Jason previously. Although this Friday the 13th is not a sequel, it is technically the 11th film in the franchise and follows Jason's last apperance in Freddy vs Jason in 2003. Friday the 13th is currently set to open on Friday, February 13th, 2009.
