Welcome back to Crystal Lake in a chilling re-imagining of the classic horror film "Friday the 13th." Searching for his missing sister, Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki) heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins behind moss-covered trees. And that"s not the only thing lying in wait under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has in the search for his missing sister, Whitney (Amanda Righetti), with the help of Jenna (Danielle Panabaker), a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are all about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they"ve entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history--the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete...Jason Voorhees.
There"s no escaping the iconic elements of "80s nostalgia forever tied to FRIDAY THE 13TH and its many sequels. From Jason Voorhees and his hockey mask to the tingle of fear that shoots through an audience when Harry Manfredini"s score whispers, "ki ki ki, ma ma ma," the series remains one of the most popular horror franchises of all time. Now, with Platinum Dunes re-imagining the original film for an audience almost 30 years later, how does Jason come to life in a digital world? The answer lies with Asylum Visual Effects, whose work on the project pushes the notion that, when it comes to VFX, less can be a whole lot more.
From the earliest stages of the films" conception, director Marcus Nispel issued the edict that all effects needed to be, whenever possible, done practically, aiming for what he refers to as a "snuff charm" in the style of the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE director Tobe Hooper. This meant a lot of on-set prosthetics and quite a bit of blood and gore on the part of the makeup department.
"I have two kids," says producer Brad Fuller in full agreement. "And they know when there"s CGI on the screen... In a slasher movie, what we have to do to really scare the audience has to feel very real."
