Next Friday the 13th Movie Will Be in 3D

From cinemablend, Jason Voorhees is going to get all up in your face for the next Friday the 13th installment, as Paramount recently revealed at CineEurope that the sequel (or whatever it is) will get the 3D treatment. I’m both extremely excited about it, as 3D horrors are almost always enjoyably embarrassing projects. Come to think of it, I'm equally uneasy about it for the same reason. Let’s not forget those found footage rumors, which would make this one scratch-and-sniff card away from being the most gimmicky movie ever.

Friday the 13th, which reportedly has The Signalco-director David Bruckner at the head, would be the second 3D movie in the franchise, as the vapid and goofy Friday the 13th Part III made viewers don the multi-colored eyewear back in 1982. This second trip to the third dimension wouldn’t have to work very hard to be better than that one, and they’ll hopefully film the entire thing in 3D, rather than just post-converting it after filming is complete. Whichever way it goes, I’m going to be in the theater with everybody else on November 13, 2015, hooting and dodging digitally created blood splatter.

I like how they call the third flick "vapid and goofy" as if the rest of the franchise was full of much better movies.

I don't think a 3D found footage movie would make any sense.

I can hear director Bruckner saying, "Challenge accepted!"
