Ep 91 Friday the 13th (2009)- Spawn of Monstoberfest

The Monster is back, baby!

As things in the Nighthawks Diner are often conceptual, so goes the Gregorian Calendar. The Spawn of Monstoberfest knows no bounds!

As our Monstoberfest coverage bleeds into Monstember, we want to thank you for staying with the spooky coverage.

Listen, we’ll be frank. When faced with the choice of jettisoning our Monstoberfest coverage vs sitting on our Telluride coverage for later releaseā€¦ WE DID NEITHER. OUTLAW COUNTRY!!!

The gimmick is fun, but the thesis is stronger than the fun of the calendar gimmick. We promise.

Hot on the heels of watching 2010’s A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, the boys turn the PLATINUM DUNES clock back a year and watched the re-make/boot/hash/imagining of the 1980 slasher classic FRIDAY THE 13th.

Jared Padalecki stars in this non-supernatural (ahem) chapter of the hockey-mask-wearing killer Jason Voorhees. Was this another tired remake, or did the 2009 edition bring something to the table?

The Redux of Monstoberfest continues.
