I was actually excited for Freddy vs Jason last year because I think it's an underrated movie, Monica Keena and Kelly Rowland's acting be damned.I think anybody who doubts this really doesn't know what they're talking about. This is filled to the brim with incredible scenes and settings. The backwoods, gas station, slide door room, dinner table, bone room I mean a billion iconic things to work with. The reboot took place mainly in a trailer park, they're two completely different films and anyone who disagrees probably hasn't seen either. The people who say "oh repeat" are the same who were disapointed in the announcement of Freddy vs Jason last year. I mean yes, "they're the same characters as another year" big whoop, the entire setting, look and story of it will be completely different. This really sounds like another passion project like Halloween or AWIL. Do yourself a favor, watch the movie and give it a friggin chance lol
But while I personally don't feel EXCITEMENT for this, Leatherface is a horror movie icon, one of the most unnerving at that, and at this point feels like a Horror Nights staple. Yes, while 3 times in 13 years isn't much, it's more than even some Horror Nights icons.
