For fans of the new (and kind of great) Hannibal TV series, you have another mass murderer to look forward to sitting down with on a weekly basis. Only this one doesn’t prepare you meals. In fact — he can’t do a whole lot more than breathe on your ass before he stabs you in the face.
Friday the 13th is coming back to television! Only this time, it’s going to bring the iconic hockey mask along for the ride (from 1987 to 1990, there was a Canadian-American TV series that played more like a precursor to The X-Files and Supernatural, borrowing the famous franchise’s title solely for name recognition). Sean S. Cunningham, director of the original film (as well as producer of Wes Craven’s infamous Last House on the Left), is pooling his resources to try and replicate the recent success of Hannibal and Bates Motel, and as a horror fan I couldn’t be happier. The level of gore featured in both Lecter’s tale (as well The Walking Dead) all but ensures that we’ll get some quality gratuitous kills from the hulking mongoloid on a weekly basis.
