You and your friends are dead.
The worst possible way to reboot Friday the 13th wouldn’t be an origin story or even a found footage film. No, it’d be a faithful adaptation of the NES game based on the franchise, released by LJN in 1989. The game, which has had a weird resurgence in popularity in recent years, re-imagined Jason with a purple outfit and baby blue mask, and oh boy was it charmingly bad.
True, that’s an awful idea, but it makes for a fun fan film!
Late last year, filmmaker Michael Ramova took to Indiegogo in an attempt to raise the $1,000 needed to adapt the video game into a short fan film, and not surprisingly, it didn’t take long before eager Friday fans ponied up the cash. The NES-inspired fan film was fully funded by the end of last November, and just a couple months later, the finished product has arrived.
This short is based on the infamous NES game from 1989. Everything is translated from the game, from the goofy colors, odd sound cuts to the senseless plot. Enjoy!
God bless you, Michael. And the fans who helped make this happen.
