Using 'Friday The 13th Part 13' As Title For New Sequel
In retrospect, there has been The Final Chapter, A New Beginning, The Final Friday, Jason in New York and his journey to Space. It really is hard to know what is more unkillable, Jason Voorhees or the franchise itself? That answer may never truly be explored by Paramount or Warner Bros., but for me, I have always allowed the franchise the room it needed to try different things, whether they worked or not. Of course, while growing up reading the many statements in Fangoria Magazine that the franchise would go up to Friday the 13th Part 13, I never wavered in my devotion to the Friday The 13th films. I knew nothing would ever really affect the franchise in allowing for a thirteenth film to be made. It was just a matter of time.
Whatever Paramount decides, I have to admit a cool poster that just featured the numbers 13 in blood would be darn effective. Heck, they could even do something like the Halloween series did when they called their twentieth anniversary film H20. How about 'F13'? Too simple? Well, in the mean time we can leave it up to the guys in marketing at Paramount while I look at the next film as another new beginning for Jason Voorhees.
