Now how’s that for a haunting visual?

Other pertinent details include a scene in which Jason Voorhees ventures out onto the frozen Crystal Lake while hunting a rather unfortunate hockey player, which was surely meant to be the first of many blood-curdling kills involving the iconic, masked killer. What’s more, Shannon and Swift envisioned a Friday the 13th sequel

With another Halloween nearly upon us, Jason Voorhees is no doubt swinging his machete and donning his hockey mask on TV screens around the world as horror fans embrace the spirit of the season. But viewers are still waiting for the Crystal Lake killer's return to the big screen, as the new Friday the 13th movie was recently pushed back to a planned October 13th, 2017 release. In an interview with Collider, Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form gave an update on the thirteenth Friday the 13th and confirmed that Breck Eisner will indeed direct the film.

Speaking to Collider, Fuller and Form talked about the long journey to get Jason back in theaters following 2009's Friday the 13th.

Comic-Con 2016: Colony Season 2 Interviews with Sarah Wayne Callies, Josh Holloway & More

At the core of USA Network’s Colony lies the big question: to resist or collaborate with the aliens that have taken over the world? At this year’s Comic-Con, I had the opportunity to participate in roundtable press room interviews with the cast and crew of Colony to discuss both sides of the Occupation, what’s to come in season two, and much more.

Colony co-creator / executive producer / writer Carlton Cuse on expanding the show’s world in season two and increasing the sci-fi elements:

Carlton Cuse: The show will be more dystopic in season two. We intentionally tried to steer away from the traditional Blade Runner, rogue level of dystopia. Proxy Snyder was a guy who thought, “I’ll try to leave things as much the same as they were in order to give people the best experiences under this occupation.” It didn’t work out too well for him,

Colony Review: USA Network's Alien-Occupation Thriller Is Packed With Anxious Moments
Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean an alien drone isn’t about to hunt you down and send you to “The Factory,” a great big prison camp (quite literally) in the sky.

That’s the unsettling reality that pervades every character motivation in Colony, USA Network’s tense new drama from executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan Condal (Hercules) — premiering tonight at 10/9c — that benefits from an excellent ensemble cast led by Lost‘s Josh Holloway and The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies.
