It would ruin f13 for me if the had a demon/alien looking jason in the movies. the scariest movies of all and what made jason movies intense is that it was a posibility of it could really happen. a psycho mad man living in the would and killing people it happens or could happen. aliens and demons have yet to be proven. plus evey game since nes has had demons/aliens i think the first real jason movie should be more towards jason not out of the box crazy concepts. I get it that its a concept but should still relate to the story line somewhere. not a huge fan of the zombie jason but about as far as i can see jason going is 6-9/10.
but like someone else said this jason could just be torn cloths and i hope so. I also hope that the ghost rider effect is able to be turned off or just for this little teaser. who really want to see a jack o lantern running threw the woods.
Body never found, didn't drown, didn't die, survived in the woods, whatever brought him back didn't happen until after his first true death at the end of Part 4.
If he had died as a child and had been brought back by a curse, then it'd be a muddy zombified lil disabled kid stalking around camp Crystal Lake, not a grown man. He grew, dead bodies don't.
Lets be ENTIRELY honest for a second... The F13 continuity from a plot standpoint is a fucking mess.
1 - 2 never explains how Jason is still around YEARS after he died.
And that lead to a lot of mystery, was it supernatural? Did he just survive and hide from his mother? Did his mother KNOW he survived and go out for revenge anyway?
It was always a mystery. And most folks prefer it that way.
HOWEVER! In the J9 continuity, (Which is WIDELY considered non canon) They kind of give is an answer, his mom in her grief used the Necronomicon to raise Jason, but he came back deformed as a kind of Deadite monster.
This skin seems to exist in the J9 space, so don't worry about it "Not being Jason like", Its a non canon Jason anyway.
Just Like JGTH, Freddy Vs Jason and Jason X.. its all in good fun, don't take it too seriously.
