Look at Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens it's the highest grossing film of all time and after many people had gone to see it and loved it they turned around and trashed the movie on the internet ?? Why ?? you spent all that money to tell people you loved it the first time you say it and then turned around to tell people all the shit you didn't like about every other time you PAID to watch it !?!?!?? In what fucked up logic does that make any sense at all ?? I mean I know you haave the right to bitch because you paid your money but you saw loved it the first time you saw it and then the other 7 times you hated it ... Really ??
I'm a BIG Jason fan and while I love the movies I think a TV series could work on many levels, mainly if they tie up loose ends in the movie series or set the show in a time prior to the films like the events leading up to Jason's death. or they could use this TV series to build steam towards the next movie which has had many false starts and is in limbo now .
I love all the classic slasher movies and I'm a fan of them all even though I focus on Jason, Freddy, Michael and Ghostface for the most part. Jason is an ICON in the world of film NOT just Horror but across many genres as well as music, tv shows, comics etc. Jason is the man period !
While this show on the CW could fail why are we already hoping it does ? Lets give it the benefit of the doubt and watch it before we start trashing it. I think and hope the show will do well if it's well written and has a specific vision for the season, if they are all over the place it will tank fast but if they write it well and stay true to the Friday story I think it WILL be a HUGE success .
Scream is a perfect example of a movie that they moved to TV and it worked out very well. I loved the series and can't wait for Season two later this year. I think If Bradon James (The killer on the Scream series) can work, Jason or Mrs. Voorhees for that matter can not only work on the small screen but could be very well done if we the FANS get behind the project and support it .
Think about how awesome it will be to see Jason or Mrs. Voorhees slashing people up on TV week after week and all the things they can do with the show which even in a limited 13 week run is 13 HOURS of bloody murder to watch.
So don't knock it until we see what they are doing with it people, come on give it a chance.
Stay Humble, Stay Hungry my friends ..
