friday the 13th

I loved the Friday the 13th movies when I was growing up. Scary, sure, but off set by that silly, campy humor. There is something so entertaining about laughing and screaming and hiding your face in your hands, peeking out between the fingers to see if the fear is gone.

Here is the new Friday the 13th movie trailer

Yeah, it looks scary as hell, but where is the humor? I don’t see a trace of it anywhere. I miss the old movies for that. Everything is so real now, so devoid of the tongue and cheek that made the horror of my youth so much fun.

I guess this is just more evidence that I am getting to be an old crony.
