So it’s Friday the 13th, and we once again have no new Friday the 13th film on the horizon. This makes us sad, but the good news is that fans are taking matters into their own hands.
In the wake of the Friday the 13th remake in 2009, which brought back Jason while simultaneously hitting the pause button on the franchise for nearly ten years now, countless fans have come along to make their own Friday the 13th movies and faux trailers.
After all, someone has to keep the big guy alive.
This latest trailer for a nonexistent new Friday the 13th movie, released this morning, comes to us from fan Nick Merola, who missed Jason and did something about it.
“Friday the 13th is one of the longest-running film franchises of all time and fans have long awaited Jason’s return to the big screen,” Merola said of the New Jersey-shot teaser. “The purpose of the trailer is to announce the return of this slasher legend and to let the fans know they have not been forgotten – Jason lives!”
Happy Friday the 13th!
