The Fear Monger: Evil Clowns, Black Holes And Jason Voorhees...Or Not
Good day, dwellers of the devilís basement. Are you guys ready for Devilís Due coming out later this week? Yeah, me either. Fortunately there are much more interesting and original films hitting theaters and VOD sites over the next few months. And two of them include Dan Fogler and an evil clown, which were formerly assumed to be the same thing.
There's another found footage movie coming out this year, Mark Neveldine's The Vatican Tapes, which will center on a leaked video of an exorcism that goes extremely wrong. While these kinds of films usually rely on practical sound effects and deep booming noises for their soundscape, The Vatican Tapes will receive a score composed by bonkers musician Mike Patton, lead singer of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, and about a dozen other side projects. That fact alone has me 20% more excited about this movie than I already was. So now it stands at 22%. And growing.
Jason Voorhees Might Not Be In Friday the 13th's 13th FilmOkay, so that's a bit of story bait for you guys to immediately get angry about, but Crave Online caught up with Platinum Dunes' Brad Fuller, one of the Friday producers, who said that Jason's absence is at least a possibility, and the found footage angle is still in the air. I suppose next we'll hear about a Fast & Furious movie without any cars and a Roland Emmerich movie that won't destroy half of the world's population.
When asked if actor Derek Mears would be reprising his role as the hockey masked murderer, Fuller said, "I donít know because I donít know if weíre going to have Jason, I donít know which Jason weíre going to have. I can tell you this: I love Derek Mears, I love working with him and heís a dream so weíd be lucky to have him." That's a pretty strange way to answer a question, even if it doesn't reflect on the final product. They don't even have a script yet to go along with their March 13, 2015 release date.
Fuller acknowledges that Platinum Dunes' Welcome to Yesterday is a found footage movie and that The Purge has some of the same elements, and says they understand that a large portion of their fanbase doesn't want to see this film in that format. But Fuller pretty much sums it all up by saying, "Until we figure out exactly what the story is for the next Friday the 13th movie, I canít tell you what itís going to be." Now if you guys will excuse me, I'm going to have a bowl of soup without a bowl or any soup.
