So who's going to see FvJ this weekend? Yes yes, I know... it's certainly not going to be Lawrence of Arabia, but all of the sneak preview screenings have been fairly positive. Most folks have said it's everything you'd hope for/expect from a good slasher flick: gore, nudity, and FUN.
Personally, I plan on catching the midnight show on Fri. before the party on Sat. I mean, let's face it... it can't be any worse than a lot of the other crap force-fed to us this summer.
I'm a huge horror fan, I grew up on Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies... It never fails to amuse people. When I was REALLY young I wouldn't want to even look at Fangoria in the magazine aisle at Waldenbooks, but as I got older, I got so into the stuff that it bordered on obsession... though, I still don't understand why bookstore employees think buying Fango is so weird.
Anyway! I've been excited for this movie for years, and I've read some really, REALLY bad script treatments, and apparently they one they finally picked is great! Ronny Yu helming is also very cool, but I'm not sure how I feel about Ken Kirzinger as Jason instead of Kane Hodder... but we'll see.
I'll probably be hitting it late Friday night, too... I might buy tickets early, but something tells me it's not gonna sell out... better safe than sorry, though.
