Did you know a young boy drowned here?
That is the question that kicks off the official trailer for
Friday the 13th. Like every horror, the preview was sure to reveal some female skin before showing off some frightening images, including our first re-introduction to Jason.
Friday the 13th Trailer
After the supposed death of her son at a summer camp, a mother begins to kill the camp employees. After her death at the hands of the remaining employees, her son returns to continue her bloody work.
As you can tell, Paramount has yet to update the film's officially short synopsis, but that doesn't mean the official trailer is anything short of new material. I've always felt that horror films don't need to have that high of bar -- they are all typically pretty cheesy -- but this looks like one of the better of them for sure. The trailer concludes on a countdown and, though we've seen this technique a few times now (especially in horror trailers), it is still a pretty cool effect. Besides - at least this one is counting to something: 13.
