FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE REMAKE
The Remake starts off with two local community actors (A young girl playing a counselor and an older woman playing Mrs. Vorhees) rehearsing a scene from the original Friday film. Its black and white and they are performing in the rain for dramatic effect I assume. From the bushes a third actor in boy Jason make-up is seen watching. The mom goes on and on about the counselors screwing and letting her poor boy drowned in the yada, yada, yada. You heard all that before. The acting is bad. Really bad. Like you know this can't be part of the film bad. You expect at any moment that you will hear the director call "cut" and everyone goes back to being themselves with a laugh or two. Instead the girl takes her machete and cuts off the mom's head. As the blood spurts you realize that THIS IS THE FILM! Couldn't they get better actors for that scene? It feels like they just shot that scene as an after thought and couldn't get enough money to make it good. Maybe they hadn't watched the original Friday film (like everybody else) until after they made the movie. Whoops.
