So Marcus Nispel, the guy who made the pointless 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is at it again, eh? Except don’t call it a remake: it’s a reboot, if you please.
Do we really need a reboot of Jason, though? Is he a character who continues to speak to us through the ages, a figure with something fresh and new and relevant to say to a new generation? Is he Hamlet or MacBeth? Is he even Spock or Scotty? I think not.
Jason’s new rampage will surely be bloodier and more graphic and more… anatomical than last time around. It disturbs me that this is considered reason enough to reboot him.
