We all have them. Our guilty pleasure movies. Movies we like that we don’t like to tell other people. Films that bring us unbridled joy while making others cringe in pain. Films so many people hate but you just, somehow, for whatever reason, love. This is my list.
In the movies, Jason Voorhees always came back. But at the theater, his resurrection is becoming increasingly difficult. For the fourth time, the Friday the 13th reboot has been delayed.
If these were actual stamps, it might make a trip to the post office bearable.
Here at io9, we report on a lot of projects when they’re first announced. Oftem, however, there’s a long stretch between the initial news and the project’s actual release. Sometimes, it’s long enough for you to completely forget about them; sometimes, it’s long enough that Hollywood probably forgot about them. Let’s…
Anytime the calendar hits a “Friday the 13th,” we all take it as an excuse to discuss the legendary horror franchise. And why not? It’s named after this date, after all. So to celebrate, we’ve rounded up a bunch of cool Friday the 13th posters and invite you to add some more too.
The 13th Friday the 13th movie has been lurking in the shadows so long we’d almost given up on it. But it’s still a go—and in a recent interview, Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller and Andrew Form spilled a few vague/tantalizing details on the forthcoming reboot from director Breck Eisner. Here’s what we learned.
Monsters lurk everywhere in pop culture—novels, comic books, TV shows, urban legends—but today, we’re focusing on killers who were born in the movies. For this io9 guide, we picked cinema’s biggest, most evil slasher-movie baddies... plus a few cult favorites, too.
There aren’t many places you can experience Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Exorcist, The Purge, American Horror Story, and The Walking Dead all in one place, and survive the experience. In fact, there’s just one: Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights.
The Friday the 13th reboot gets a new director. Get a look at Jeremy Renner and Amy Adam’s new scifi film Arrival. Dana Walden teases the upcoming Fox/Marvel mutant TV show. Plus, Chloe Bennet on Ghost Rider’s arrival in Agents of SHIELD, and new footage from Lucifer and Gotham. Spoilers Now!
Much like its hockey-masked killer, the Friday the 13th franchise is apparently immortal, surviving hell, outer space, a bout with Freddy Krueger, and a 2009 reboot. That said, it’s taken a rather long time to get to the series’ much-anticipated 13th installment—but now we’ve gotten some intriguing news.
Today is Friday the 13th, a name shared with one of horror’s most stories franchises. And while many films in the series rightfully get celebrated or eviscerated, one that’s often overlooked is 2002's Jason X, the movie where producers finally said, “Screw it. Let’s put Jason in space.” It’s definitely dumb, but over…
Chi-chi-chi-ha-ha-ha. It’s Friday the 13th! What better way than to celebrate than by judging, ranking, and obsessing over the violent cinematic exploits of hockey enthusiast Jason Voorhees? Most of these movies aren’t even good!
We’re not sure what it is about this day, but bunch of different places decided to release some simply beautiful pop culture art. There’s Star Wars, Harry Potter, Mad Max, Friday the 13th, Deadpool, G.I. Joe, and more. So we’re just gonna drop it all on you at once.
In Hollywood, a lot of great ideas never make it to the big screen. (See: Jodorowsky’s Dune, then shake fist at sky, screaming “Whyyy?”) Slasher movie fans will be especially disappointed to hear about a never-made new Friday the 13th film that—unlike most other horror reboots—actually sounds cool as hell.
Jason Voorhees may have met his match. It’s the number 13. It’s been six years since the twelfth Friday the 13th film came out—and the forthcoming 13th sequel just got hit with another string of setbacks.
The Flash teases the arrival of Harrison Wells—and the new Firestorm. Go behind the scenes in new pictures from Batman v Superman. Jessica Jones has a cool new poster (and a teaser for a new trailer). Plus, clips from Agents of SHIELD, and Doctor Who, and new Supergirl pictures. Spoilers Now!
The Final Girls is a slasher movie, a slasher-movie parody, a horror comedy, and a drama about coming to terms with regrets. Though it’s not especially scary in itself, The Final Girls is the smartest movie about scary movies since Cabin in the Woods.
