Previously I mentioned how cool it would be to do a Jason X map for the Friday the 13th Game. I really want them to do the Freddy vs. Jason Jason, cause I love Freddy vs. Jason. But I got an idea of how they can do a DLC based on Freddy vs. Jason. What if you play at 1428 Elm Street or rundown Crystal Lake, most of the players play the characters, while two players play the killers, one plays Jason and the other plays Freddy. You two would be competing to see who can kill the most characters, and when the two killers meet, you can either team up, or fight each other, and you can get more points if you can kill the opposing killer. The only thing I can’t figure out, is how do you kill the killers? I mean, the only thing I can figure out, which fits on the idea of calling someone for help, the idea would be to bring in Ashley J. Williams to kill them both. Or, if you throw out the idea two opposing killers, you can call Freddy to kill Jason. But yeah, I don’t know if there are any characters from Freddy vs. Jason who the characters could call for help to finish them off. I mean, I love Lori in Freddy vs. Jason, but I don’t know if she would be that character who would be the heroine to finish them off.
I hear there might be talk of a Jason X DLC for the Friday the 13th game. I love this game, I just wish I had more time to play it. But I think I have a great idea of how they could do this DLC.
See, in the game, you play on a map from the Friday films, Part 1, 2, 3, and 4, you can survive by staying alive until time runs out, call the cops and escape, find the three parts to the car, finding the parts to the boat, or call Tommy Jarvis and do the complicated process of killing Jason. Apply the same principle to Jason X.
The map would be on the Grendel ship, which would be interesting cause it would have an Alien Isolation to it, instead of woods, it would be dark corridors and automatic sliding doors. You can send out a distress beacon and someone can save you in a rescue ship like the cops. You can repair the shuttle just like the car and escape that way, like refuel it from the control room and get other pieces before getting the shuttle, and it can only take a small number of people. And here’s the best part, instead of calling Tommy Jarvis, you can call the KM-14 robot to kill Jason, which would be awesome! The part about killing Jason would be difficult, one idea I have is using the virtual reality room to trick him, but that’s all I got.
All that could be really cool!
Well they’re doing Jason X map for the game. I wonder if it will be these ideas in the game. That would be really cool if I could predict all that.
I recently bought a book on everything that led to Freddy vs. Jason and all the rejected scripts and all that. One them had an element that was used in the second Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash comic book that got me thinking. See, I wanna adapt those two comics into animated films someday, cause I have 3D models of Ash, Jason, and Freddy. But I have a problem with the second book’s ending and with Ash vs. Evil Dead it would be hard to set these two stories between Army of Darkness and Ash vs. Evil Dead. And since the company that did the FVJVA comic books went out of business we don’t know if there were plans for a 3rd and if so, we’ll never get to see it.
Anywho, the ending of FVJVA: Nightmare Warriors has Ash and his team of Freddy and Jason survivors killing both killers and changing the world back to normal. Ash and the Nightmare Warriors go their separate ways with Tommy Jarvis left in charge of the Nightmare Warriors. But in the middle of the battle, one of the government agents who attempts to use the Necronomicon, Freddy, and Jason as weapons was sucked through a time portal. So after Ash and the Nightmare Warriors go their separate ways, we find the agent finds himself in the past at the time of Krueger’s arrest, he finds the arrest warrant the judge forgot to sign which led to Freddy being released and the parents burning him turning him into the dream demon we know and love. But the agent changes it by signing the warrant. That’s where it ends. Again, where they planned to go after that is anyone’s guess. The idea was a based on a FVJ where the writer attempted to end the story where Jason and Freddy could not come back this time. In that script, we find out that Freddy actually killed Jason after getting his dream powers because Jason’s parents were on of the few who killed Freddy. So it ends with one of the characters, who is a cop, going back in time thanks to Freddy’s mother, Sister Amanda Krueger, to sign the arrest warrant so Freddy will never get released, never burned, never got his power, and never killed Jason. So neither Jason nor Freddy would ever be created.
So I thought of an idea of how I could adapt it, I mean, my idea of keeping the ending, to wrap things up since FVJVA3 is probably never gonna happen and with Ash vs. Evil Dead out.
My idea has Ash and Nightmare Warriors defeating Freddy and Jason, but the world is in ruin, so Tommy Jarvis suggests using the book to open two portals to go back in time and prevent Freddy and Jason ever being created. He even suggests preventing Ash from finding the book, but he declines worrying that changing 3 things would doom the world, and he feels that after Army of Darkness, nothing will really change for him except his encounters with Freddy and Jason, unless he reads from the book again. We all know that will happen. So the government agent reads from the book “Klatu Verata Nikto” and Tommy Jarvis goes back in time to prevent Jason from drowning, while the agent goes back in time to sign the arrest warrant since he was around back then and had the power to authorize the warrant.
The timeline changes picking up after Army of Darkness left off where the S-Marts have gone out of business and Ash is looking for a new job in the paper at a diner where a TV plays that after so much legalization, Freddy is finally set to be executed for his crimes, where we see old Robert Englund. Then the TV changes to a hockey game where we see, guess who, Jason, who never drowned and never became a psycho killer, instead became a successful hockey player. Ash finally finds a job at a new chain stores called, you guess it, the Value Stop. Then we’d see little flashes about how life is for the survivors since they never encountered Freddy and Jason.
That way everything for Ash is the same except his encounters with Jason and Freddy and people won’t wonder why in Ash vs. Evil Dead, Ash never mentioned his encounters Jason and Freddy. I think it’s a cool idea. I think it would be funny.
I got a better idea. Instead of the agents going back in time willingly, they go back in time accidentally just like the comic book, they prevent Jason’s drowning and Freddy being released. And instead of the S-Marts going out of business, Ash got fired for accidentally sticking his metal hand in a toaster, which blew up both the toaster and his hand, which would explain why he has a wooden hand in Ash vs. Evil Dead. And when he leaves the diner, the Necronomicon drops out of the sky on his car, which would explain where he got the book in Ash vs. Evil Dead.
Currently, I have been working on my own animated Friday the 13th reboot and I love what I’m coming up with, but I actually came up with another idea that I kinda wish to do, but I’m also glad I didn’t do it because it’s pretty bold and I like my current idea more. I conceived it as an idea for a Friday the 13th TV series, season 1 anyway. This is the idea:
Okay, we tell the story in modern times where some young horny teens are trying to reopen Camp Crystal Lake. They’re trying to get the place in shape, happy go lucky kids free from adult supervision having sex, drinking beer, and getting high. But the camp has a dark history, 10 years ago a child named Jason Voorhees drowned while the counselors were having sex. A year later, those counselors were murdered and the killer never apprehended. An urban legend grew that it was the ghost of Jason Voohrees who took his revenge for his drowning. The boy was deformed so he wore a hockey mask to hide his ugliness. So while the kids are having fun, a hockey masked killer is picking them off one by one.
But here’s the twist, when the hockey mask comes off we find out it’s not Jason, it’s actually a young woman, one of the counselors. This would be a whodunnit and it would be surprise that someone was trying to make it look like Jason rose from the grave. But why did she do it? Because who she really is, is Pamela Voorhees. See in this story, Pamela Voorhees wouldn’t be an old woman and not even married. In this story, Pamela had Jason when she was 14 and Jason drowned when he was 8 years old and Pamela was 22. 10 years later in our present time, she infiltrated the camp to keep it closed so no child would drown like her little Jason. Doing it this way is that people could still see a hockey masked killer, Pamela would be the killer, and it would be an homage to the series but done in a way where it wouldn’t be obvious. Like, if we saw an old woman in the story you’d be like “oh, she must be Mrs. Voorhees.”
The only problem with this idea is that it might be similar to Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning. I mean, I liked that it was a whodunnit, but I hated it because the characters were so bad that you wanted them to die and because it was so badly written. Again, this idea is pretty bold because from what I understand, people hated Part 5 because Jason wasn’t the killer. Again, people like to see Jason, and for some reason people don’t want a Friday the 13th movie without him.
What do you think? Do you think it could work?
I have one last Jason post I swear. This has bothered me after I saw the Jason movies after Freddy vs. Jason, don’t judge me. In Freddy vs. Jason, after Freddy realizes he unleashed a mad dog that’s taking his victims Freddy tries to put Jason down by taking him on on his own turf, the dream world. Freddy sedates Jason and brings him into the dream world where they have their first epic fight. Jason gets the upper hand when water pours down in front of him, which makes Jason pause staring at the water. Freddy says, “Ah, so you are afraid of something after all.” and rains water down on Jason, which turns him into a little kid shivering on the ground and bringing back Jason’s memory of when he drowned at Camp Crystal Lake when he was a child.
Fans cried foul. Jason has been seen many times around water. In Part 4, Jason stabbed a girl from underwater when she was on a raft. In Part 6, Tommy Jarvis lures Jason to the lake to trap him, Jason even walks into water with no problem. In Part 7, Jason grabbed a girl from underwater and pulled her under. And finally, in Part 8, Jason rose from the lake, hitched a ride on a boat to New York, and when it sank he swam to New York. Many fans dislike the idea of Jason being afraid of water since it doesn’t sync with the other movies, Kane Hodder even expressed on the Crystal Lake Memories documentary that he would’ve fought to veto that idea if he was hired for Freddy vs. Jason. According to the original writers of Freddy vs. Jason in the same documentary, they said that they did not write that in their script, that it was put in after a rewrite. They indicate their idea was that Jason had a subconscious fear of “drowning.”
Which leads me to my theory. See when they said that Jason was “subconsciously” afraid of water it gave me the idea that Jason is only afraid of water in the dream world. The subconscious sometimes lies dreams, which Freddy is an expert at manipulating. In the real world, Jason isn’t afraid of water, which makes sense since Jason didn’t shiver up when he fought Freddy on the dock of Camp Crystal Lake. The point is, Jason’s memory of drowning came back to him when he fought Freddy in the dream world, Freddy just used that memory and fear against him, especially since Jason turns into a child in that scene. In other words, Jason is afraid of water in the dream world, but isn’t in the real world.
That’s just my theory.
I saw an article on the best to worst Friday the 13th movies. I couldn’t comment on it without starting an account. But I already started and I didn’t want it to go to waste and I posted my Friday the 13th script, so what the hell.
1) Original 1st (only because that’s what started it all and I like the originality of it)
2) Part 2 (first time we meet Jason, just wish he had the hockey mask)
3) Reboot (it just seems so simplistic and interesting, but could’ve been better)
4) Freddy vs. Jason (I just really love that movie a lot)
5) Jason Lives (it was okay, didn’t really like Jason being undead)
6) Final Chapter (I like Tommy Jarvis)
7) Part 3 (first time we get the hockey mask)
8) New Blood (didn’t like the telekinesis, but better then the ones below)
9) Takes Manhattan (could’ve had more Jason in New York and just a weak story)
10) X (I only like it because it’s so funny and stupid)
11) Goes to Hell (the body swapping was just dumb. If they had more Jason it probably would’ve been good)
12) New Beginning (not because of no Jason, just because it had the weakest story)
This isn’t complete cause I’m not fully sure myself, but the first 4 are good for sure.
I read this comic book a long time ago in the Friday the 13th franchise. It is called Pamela’s Tale, a two issue comic book about how Mrs. Voorhees became the murderous killer we know, that didn’t just start with her son’s drowning. The story begins with Annie, the counselor Mrs. Voorhees picks up in the original, where while she’s driving she tells her life story to Annie, and continues to tell her even after Pamela has killed her.
The story tells that Mrs. Voorhees lived in a trailer park with her abusive husband Elias Voorhees, whose name was take from the planned alternate ending Jason Lives where Elias visits Jason and Pamela’s graves. Pamela was crazy believing her unborn was talking to her, influencing her to kill Elias so that he would never hurt her or her baby again. After murdering her husband, we see her move to Crystal Lake where she became a great cook in a dinner and then was offered to cook at Camp Crystal Lake by the Christies. After accepting the job, she goes into labor and gives birth to her deformed son, Jason. The doctors were repulsed by his appearance, but to her, he was beautiful. Annie gets freaked out when Pamela takes a different route to Crystal Lake, just like in the original where she jumps out of the car and Mrs. Voorhees kills her. She then takes Annie’s body, puts her in the passenger seat, and continues telling the story. We see Jason grow to be 8 years old where the babysitter complains that Jason has been killing small, wild animals. Pamela didn’t want Jason to be around other people feeling like only she can raise him and was hard to watch him and keep her job at the camp. So the Christies offer for Jason to stay at the camp where the counselors can watch him. But we know where that goes. The two counselors, Barry and Claudette leave to have sex in the woods. Jason interrupts and Barry chases him into the lake where he sinks and drowns. Pamela, angered by her son’s death, she takes revenge into her own hands a year later, where she stalks Barry and Claudette, who weren’t even reprimanded for Jason’s death, and kills them both. The two who die in the beginning of the 1st movie. Then we cut back to present time where she finishes telling her story to Annie’s corpse and the story ends with Mrs. Voorhees arriving at the camp where she meets with Alice.
I love this comic book a lot. But there are some continuity errors, if you count all 11 Friday the 13th movies.
For example, Jason had a sister in Jason Goes to Hell, Diana Kimble. The comic book makes no reference to that at all, we didn’t see Mrs. Voorhees give birth to a daughter and Mrs. Voorhees said in the original that Jason was her only child. The only explanation was that Diana was born after Jason by her father Elias Voorhees, but in this comic book, Pamela killed Elias making no way for him to conceive Diana. Either way, the comic book makes no reference to Jason Goes to Hell.
Also, Freddy vs. Jason has Jason drowning a different way. In Jason’s dream flashback, we see him being bullied by the other kids at Camp Crystal Lake while the counselors are having sex. It even explains why Jason wore a burlap sack in Part 2, because while the kids were bullying him one kid threw a sack over his head and said, “Try this on!” The kids push Jason in the lake and he drowns. Which I feel is a much better drowning of Jason considering that he drowned because Mrs. Voorhees said that the counselors weren’t watching him as opposed to Jason interrupting them having sex and them chasing him into the lake.
Lastly, Mrs. Voorhees is telling her story to Annie while they’re driving, but shouldn’t she be at the camp popping off the other counselors? I mean, she could’ve easily stopped at the camp killing the counselors and got back to the jeep to continue her story to Annie’s corpse. But still, it would’ve been nicer to see her actually doing the killing, I feel like the comic makes it look like she’s been in the jeep throughout the first movie.
Other then those continuity errors, I think the story is perfect. But I think they could’ve easily have been fixed. I think it would’ve been better if she eloped with her boyfriend Elias Voorhees. But he left her and she had to move back in with her abusive father and she kills him instead. With Elias Voorhees still around, then it would explain Diana being around in Jason Goes to Hell. Change the drowning scene with the same scene from Freddy vs. Jason. Lastly, we should see Mrs. Voorhees killing the counselors at the camp so it doesn’t look like she’s in the jeep with Annie throughout the story.
That’s just what I would’ve done if I wrote this comic book and it would’ve synced more with the other movies.
