  • I I feel that the powers that be need to ry some new things, go for new ground, etc. I won't lie, I love the '80's feeling of the early F13th movies, but it's no need to revisit them again, especially when the reboot already did so in a fantastic manner & there are so many other styles and atmospheres that could be applied.

    Just my $0.02 though.

      For me, I'd love the film making technique from back then to be reapplied. I.e, no computer/CGI graphics and old school prostetics again. I guess that's why evil dead remake is so exciting cause they're making everything authentically with no computer effects.

        Already sold out and of course, I couldn't grab one.
        Mondo has some awesome posters but $45 + Shipping that shit isn't worth it.

          Oh no sir, very much is it worth the price. Once ypu have it, you have it for life. And it looks killer when properly framed.

            Lol I have two mondo prints I love them but I got them off ebay for a lot cheaper granted that was years ago now they sell for 45 then people turn around and sell them for 145 still too expensive in my opinion!

              The problem isn't CGI being used, it's the way that it's used. If it's used in a way that you don't notice or in a way where it blends in seamlessly, it's fine. I do prefer that movies use as much make-up & prosthetics as possible, but in watching the behind the scenes for some films, their reasoning for going the CGI route makes sense.

              Sometimes it's the easier process to take, not out of laziness, but just to save everyone involved time doing something unnecessarily.

              For instance, most people probably didn't notice that half of the blade that was in Richie's head in the reboot was CGI.

                Yeah, I agree. It serves a purpose sometimes. I'm just a nostalgia junkie i guess.

                • I am too, I just try to sympathize with the people behind the scenes, as CGI is a lot of times the lesser of two evil's, so to speak.

                  • The Laid to Rest films are the only slasher flicks that perfectly blended practical FX and CGI for me.

                    I don't care if it saves time, money etc. it rarely looks right to me when they use CGI in kill scenes.

                    The F13th reboot for example. The ax blade sticking out of Lawrence's chest was so obviously CGI it took me of the movie.

                    Other than that it wasn't really noticeable in the reboot.

                    Then it's my job to teach them how to do it, how they will be able to master a rockhard dick with their skillfull tongue - simple. I did that once, I'll do it again, no prob for Santa.

                      Really? It didn't take me out of the movie, I thought it was executed fairly well, especially considering all of the other horrible CGI kill sequences I've seen.

                      But yeah, CGI in horror movies does tend to be lazily applied. I like when it's done in a subtle manner or a way where you can't even guess what's CGI & what's being done with prosthetics & make-up.

                            Why include the TV series? Fear the padding.

                              Never Sleep Again covered the Freddys Nightmares TV series.

                              It's all apart of the franchise.
