What Director should direct a Friday the 13th film? Direct10

1st Pick: Tom Mcloughlin

No surprise here as Tom Mcloughlin is the director and writer of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives where it's become the most popular in the franchise as it was him who helped save the franchise after the massive negative backlash from Part V from audiences, and where he helped turned Jason Voorhees from a Human into a Revenant Zombie slasher icon! And he even has two seperate scripts already lined up a Prequel with Pamela Voorhees and a sequel to his own Jason Lives film, I couldn't see anyone with a bigger passion than him! If there's anyone who can keep it true to the old fashion it's him! And I am sure he has C.J. Graham already in mind as his Jason!

2nd Pick: Adam Green

Adam Green!! The mam behind the Hatchet series and the creator of Jason Voorhees inspired slasher Victor Crowley! His writing and directorial vision helped made his series a certified cult classic and a must see slasher! I am sure he would have blood, gore, creativr kills and a massive body count! Hatchet already has 4 films and I can't wait for more Crowley!!!

3rd Pick: John Carpenter


The main man himself who helped change the horror genre with the Halloween series is obviously going to be my pick!! The man created a Slasher Icon! And yet I don't know how he feels towards Jason Voorhees but I feel that if he's behind the helm for a Friday the 13th Film I am sure we will get something new and yet authentic 80s movie!

Honorable Mention: John Carl Buechler


The late and great John Carl Buechler helped cement his legacy when he brought Kane Hodder to play his Jason Voorhees and from what I know and remeber, he had a plan for a sequel to his film: Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood where Jason (Kane Hodder ofc) is on a ruthless mission to hunt and kill Tina through a hospital and I am sure if he was still here and given a chance? He would definitely had it made!! R.I.P. John Carl Buechler!!!

Honorable Mention: Vincente DeSantis


A Fan-Film director for Never Hike Alone and his own Jason Voorhees is Vincente DeSantis on my Honorable list because we know companies won't literally hire us true fans to direct a movie and so I wanted to mention Vincente because his work for his own fanfilm series is actually well made and worth the watch since we haven't had a new film in many years and it's nice to see a fresh take on the series that doesn't make it ridiculous!!

Well, we can't get the last three. I'd be happy with either of the first two.

Would he even THINK about touching the franchise?

How would you convince him to do a slasher movie? Has he done one already?

Its not a far stretch, at least as I see it. Look at the setting he created for Alien. Substitute an isolated camp ground for the Nostromo and Jason for the zenomorph, add in a decent script, and you have a good slasher flick. Given what he did in Blade Runner, I'd bet he'd done Part 8 JGTM way different

I think Robert Eggers might be an interesting choice. The dude knows how to handle atmosphere and suspense, which in my opinion is the strongest part of the original Halloween, since we've brought up Carpenter.

Bobcat Goldthwait might be another one I'd like to see. He showed with Willow Creek that he can make a successful film (at least in my opinion) with a Carpenter-esque minimalist approach. Seeing as how slasher films are typically low-budget productions, I think he might be a good fit.

Of course, we still have to get people to agree to a movie!!!!
