The teaser trailer for the Friday the 13th Remake/reboot is attached to SAW V. But you don’t have to sit through a SAW marathon tonight (like me) to be able to see it. The trailer is now online for your viewing pleasure.
Aside from the few seconds of Jason running at a woman with a machete, I really wasn’t impressed with the footage that premiered at the SCREAM 2008 Awards (if you haven’t seen that footage, click here). I think the problem is that I’m hoping for a film that calls back to the horror movies of my past, and not a reinvention of the horror films of my past. That said, this teaser trailer does an incredible job of getting me excited. But who knows, it could just be a great edit. Director Marcus Nispel was the man who did the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, which I actually enjoyed. If anything, this guy knows how to make a film look good. He especially knows how to play with light, which is evident in this trailer. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
