Last year, a Kickstarter campaign was launched for an innovative new video game set within the iconic Friday the 13th franchise. We've already seen a few sneak peeks of Friday the 13th: The Game, but with the release set for sometime this fall, today we have the first full trailer with gameplay footage. Fans can see how to control the iconic Jason Voorhees in this exciting game, which will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC this fall.
Friday the 13th: The Game comes from the team at Gun Media, who released this new trailer on YouTube. Gun Media has teamed up with Kane Hodder, who played http://movieweb.com/friday-13th-video-game-clips-jason-kills/Jason Voorhees four times on the big screen (Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday and Jason X), along with makeup effects artist Tom Savini and the franchise's co-creator, Sean S. Cunningham, for this new interactive thriller. For the first time ever, fans will get to become iconic slasher Jason Voorhees and hunt camp counsolers.
Friday the 13th: The Game is a third-person, asymmetrical multiplayer title where one player controls Jason Voorhees while the remaining seven control camp counselors trying to survive the night. That's right...1v7 multiplayer set in the semi-open world of Camp Crystal Lake! It's a classic horror fan's dream, no shaky cam, no found footage. This game aims to revitalize the golden era of slashers, putting fans at the controls of each horrific, blood-splattered moment. Friday the 13th is the definition of horror to the millions of fans around the world. A masked killer going after the young and vulnerable; it grabs our attention, it frightens us, and yet we all come back for more. Friday the 13th: The Game will give you the feeling of horror and dread that you expect from Jason Voorhees.
Kane Hodder will provide the motion capture work for Jason Voorhees, with Tom Savini executive producing and providing cinematography, while Harry Manfredini will provide the score. The Gun Media team was originally planning on making a Friday the 13th game entitled Summer Camp, but their plans were expanded once Sean S. Cunningham came on board and granted them the video game license. There will be several different gameplay options, and fans will even get to create their own movie trailer based on the games they play. The iconic character Tommy Jarvis, played by Corey Feldman in Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter, will also return as an in-game guide for the player.
It's also worth noting that Paramount is slowly developing a new reboot of the Friday the 13th franchise, which will reportedly be set in the 1980s and introduce fans to Jason's family, including his father, Elias Voorhees. Paramount has set a January 13, 2017 release date for this new movie, but since no cast members have been announced, and we don't know when production will begin, that date may be pushed. While we wait for more on this horror reboot, take a look at the first gameplay trailer for Friday the 13th: The Game. »
Ever since the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th, fans have been impatiently awaiting the next installment, which has been in the works for many years. There have been rumors that this new project, which will be another reboot, will feature found footage, but that was shot down a few years ago. Paramount currently has a January 13, 2017 release date in place, but since no cast members have been announced, and we don't know when production is starting, it's possible this release may be delayed once again. Today we have new details on the project from producer Brad Fuller, who teases this next Friday the 13th movie will feature a fresh origin story for the iconic Jason Voorhees.
Back in December, we reported that the project lost director David Bruckner, who had long been attached, while gaining new screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners). The last we heard was in March, when producer Andrew Form »

Several years ago I was asked to be a part of a documentary about independent horror movies, and as a result of my involvement I was flown to Pennsylvania to film a segment with the rest of the cast. While everyone there were warm and wonderful, there was a boy about my own age who I couldn’t help but notice. He had vivid, brightly-colored tattoos and a messy mop of hair and a grin that took over his entire face. Within ten minutes we were obsessively discussing our mutual love of “Jason X” and its many tie-in novels, »

It sounds like the long-gestating Friday the 13th reboot is going directly back to its 80s roots. Literally. There has been talk that this second remake of the popular horror franchise is a period piece set in the 80s. Over the weekend at WonderCon, while promoting his upcoming sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, producer Andrew Form confirmed that the movie is a period piece. But he wouldn't specify which era the movie takes place in. He also, once again, reiterated that this new take on the Jason Voorhees mythos will definitely not be a found footage thriller.
"There is truth that this is period. And Not found footage."
The original Friday the 13th arrived in 1980, with many of the sequels arriving throughout the decade. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan was the final 80s set movie. The ninth movie, Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday, »
