Â Like a lot of you Ego-dudes, Iâ€™m sure, I love myself a little vintage horror. Obscure old Japanese movies, Johnny Deppâ€™s first film appearance (complete with shit-tastic 80s hair) in A Nightmare on Elm Street, the original Universal monster moviesâ€¦ itâ€™s all good. What could be better than a bit of Bela Lugosi getting his Dracula on on a Monday morning? Nothing, thatâ€™s what. Â
As such, Iâ€™ve kept one ogling eye firmly on Friday the 13th: The Game. A wary eye, natch, as we all know what tends to happen with licensed games, but I just canâ€™t look away. Itâ€™s like rubbernecking at an awful accident on the highway.
What I mean to say is, weâ€™ve been following this one since its Kickstarter beginnings some time back. It got quite a following from hopeful souls like me, becoming the 106th most crowdfunded project of all time. Couple that fact with all the â€˜weâ€™re-going-to-be-totally-faithful-to-the-film-and-create-the-kind-of-badass-game-weâ€™d-want-to-playâ€™ PR spiel that the dev team have been spouting, and thereâ€™s a lot of expectation here.
The gameâ€™s scheduled for release next month, giving Gun Media just a little more time to get us all hyped up. To make us believe that licensed titles arenâ€™t all barrels of wank. So, gents, the best way to do that? A super-gory compilation of Jason kills from the game. Hereâ€™s the spangly new trailer, fresh from PAX West 2016, via GameSpot.
Damn, some of those are going to smart in the morning.
