Friday the 13th Set Visit

IGN visits the set of Friday the 13th. Read what they have to say:

“In a movie like this, it’s not about the torture,” notes producer Andrew Form about his upcoming Friday the 13th remake. “The killings are fun.”

Such is the kind of distinction one can only make on the set of a horror movie, where every piece of lacerated flesh is pored over for maximum provocation. But especially for Form, who with Brad Fuller co-produced both of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies that helped make “torture porn” a part of the cinematic vernacular, it’s an important one. “I mean, it’s scary, but it’s not a torture movie. That was one of the things that really excited us about this franchise and making this movie.”

On no less than Friday, June 13, 2008, IGN visited the set of Friday the 13th, a relaunch of the classic horror franchise set to be released on February 13, 2009. According to Form, their update promises to get away from the franchise crossovers and space adventures of later installments and return hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees to the original tone and location of the early films. “The important things were who Jason is,” Form explains. “Where he comes from, which to us is Crystal Lake, and to set the movie in Crystal Lake, which the franchise got away from. That was very important to us, to go back there.”

Fuller and Form have shepherded a number of remakes to the silver screen in recent years, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror and The Hitcher. Appropriately, they not only have considerable knowledge of the original series from which they take inspiration, but understand the different kinds of new films that audiences like. Describing the process by which they borrowed and combined scenes from the original Friday films for their new one, Fuller explains, “There was a lot of things in the first four – we took kills that we loved and story points that we thought were great and put them into a blender. That seems to be the back of this film.”

“It’s not a remake of any one of them per se, it’s just kind of taking some of those story points and putting them together.”

At the same time, Fuller reassures audiences that his and Form’s pedigree as purveyors of graphic horror films does not mean that this iteration of Jason’s misadventures will be a purely bloody affair. “We wanted to have a fun horror movie,” he says. “When I say fun I don’t mean funny, but just everyday kids hanging out and having sex and smoking weed. As a production company and as producers, Drew and I have spent so much time in basements dismembering people, but it kind of wears on you so we wanted to kind of get out of that and have a movie that takes place outside and have hot girls running around and a more fun type of horror movie.”
