    That look like pure fucking trash.
    So they turned it into some teen soap opera crap?

    These tv shows just keep getting worse and worse, and I think I got brain damage just from watching the trailer...

    Ow fuck off!

    That looked fucking shit!

    I enjoyed the original but the story/premise just about fits within the running time of a movie, as for a series.....No fucking chance.

    LOL, oh man... that does look truly bad. Some of these TV shows right now are just WTF.

    I liked the slasher angle used in the 3rd season of Babylon Berlin. That wasn't even a Horror TV show, and they totally nailed it.

    It didn't look great but not necessarily bad either. Was pretty short and didn't show that much. I feel like this could be similar to the Scream TV show.

    I agree with you guys. I watched the whole trailer and it was terrible right from the start with the drug use clips that made it seem like a Me Too thing. Then I dave13 made me remember that this is a series! I was looking forward to it as well. I probably won't last after the first episode if the trailer is any indication of the quality of the show.

    I love the first two movies though probably far more than most. I think they got me back into horror movies back then. Cast is great. Soundtrack. Songs. Cinematography. Setting. All of it.

    I haven't seen the Scream TV show yet. I heard it was good. I hope it's not like this trailer.

    It's a big budget German TV show set back in 1929, but it's more of a period crime/drama. The 3rd season does go into slasher territory with a masked/costumed killer on a movie set... and they did it really well.

    I think it is on Netflix, but they dubbed it poorly into English. Kino released the 3 seasons on Blu-ray with the original German + Subtitles.

    The problems with these shows (just like Scream), is that you might get one kill per episode, but have to endure sitting through a bunch of edgy teen drama, until you get to it.
    Not worth it, just watch a slasher movie instead.

    Doesn't help that the TV shows forces woke stuff down your throat.

    I fear what they would do with a F13th show...

    Why are most TV shows filled with edgy asshole characters?
    Back in the 80:s, you got maybe the bitchy cheerleader, and the stupid jock, but that's it.
    Now you can barely get a likable lead.

    I usually stick with the natural language over the dubbed anyway.

    We still have the original Friday the 13th series. I never watched all those episodes. At the time I remember being confused by the setup yet liking the show. I haven't seen all the Freddy's Nightmares episodes either.

    I won't bother posting it. But the final trailer is still bad. I might just pass on this one.

    Here's the trailer. Well this one definitely makes it feel super underwhelming. Seems like a teen drama with little to no gore. No creepy killer shots which makes me think there's no "fisherman" killer to be found in this show. Yeah, don't know what they were thinking with this one.

    That's what I thought too. Like they were really going to go with the killer is one of the group. Which was barely implied in the original.

    The original trailer.



    And the sequel.



    These still work. The narrator always seemed to be the same guy back then. But that hit some old theater nostalgia.

    Anyone tune into the first ep? Curious to hear if it's as bad as it looks.
