I think the reason the Friday the 13th re-make is so disliked is cause it is just that, a remake. But if someone ( like yourself ) with an obvious passion for the genre was to make one, I'm sure many people ( like myself ) who love the genre, would really like to see it.
Just keep it original. but classic.
Now get back to work. I wanna see this.
I agree with this guy. The cinematic wholesale slaughter of teens is always a potential good time, as long as you're not just rehashing the same ol'-same-ol'. There's no substitute for good storytelling and interesting characters.
