Friday the 13th on the small screen?


If you love classic horror then you might love this, the CW announced they are developing a drama series for Friday the 13th according to Deadline. Hockey mask wearing, machete blade swinging Jason Vorhees on the small screen?!  Can this actually work?  I mean currently there’s Scream on MTV which gives viewers some gore, but how much gore can the CW give us? Isn’t that the real reason we watch horror movies?

This new horror/crime thriller series will be about an ongoing search for a detectives missing brother which is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees and his return to the New Crystal Lake.

The series will introduce a “grounded” Jason to a new audience and may just win the hearts of TV lovers everywhere.  I’ll be watching to see what it’s giving.
