Return of Friday the 13th.

Prepare your popcorns horror fanatics.

Following the release of “Supergirl“, CW President, Mark Pedowitz had confirmed that the CW is developing a drama series for our dear Jason Vorhees. The drama series, based on the long-running franchise of serial killer, Jason Vorhees, will be written by Steve Mitchell & Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series, “The Pretenders”.

It was said that the Friday the 13th drama series will be done in a more “grounded reality”, continuing the on-going search for the detective’s missing brother that is somehow tied to the masked Jason who is long thought dead. But of course, the main attraction of Friday the 13th is about how Jason never fails to ressurect and return to Crystal Lake for a series of crazy killing.

I mean, haven’t you ever wondered what goes on in reality the same time when Jason is out there on a killing spree? How do the public react to what he is doing and do they even know Jason exist?

To be honest, I really hope the drama series will tell us more about how Jason never fails to come back from the dead. In the last few installment of the movie series, Jason revives magically without any said reason. What we do know is that during the first few movies, Jason came back the same way Frankie did. Remember how electrictity resurrected Frankenstein?

No confirmation on when the TV series will be released though, but we can definitely expect a job well done since it’s CW!

Friday the 13th is undoubtedly one of the most successful movie franchise in America. With 12 movies, and 13 novellas adapted till date, Friday the 13th will return to our big screen on the 13th of May, 2016.

Yes, they have once again, delayed the premiere date. Well, at least we know it is confirmed this time.

Being one of the most anticipated horror film of all time, people had been spectulating what is going to happen to Jason. Will Jason return to do the killing? Or will he possess an attractive teenager this time to wipe out the Crystal Lake once again?

Rumours and facts have come and go. Here are a few things that we can be sure to expect from the 13th film!

  • It will not have any connection with the previous few films. The 2016 franchise will be an entirely brand new reboot of Friday the 13th!
  • Jason Vorhees will be back.
  • Jason’s Mother, Mrs.Vorhees, will probably be in the film.
  • Jason’s signature weapon may be drastically improved.
  • The film is highly possible to be set in the 1980s.
  • The film will explain Jason Vorhees’ origins, including his immortality.

Now, now…. With that, aren’t you excited for the 13th film?! No official trailers have been released yet, but we can definitely expect the unexpected.

Meanwhile, let’s catch Freddy in action on Netflix on your ViewQwest TV now! Or you can check out some of my other favorite programmes of all time here!

Good old dramas and movies aside, Botanic Gardens is also screening “It’s a Great Great World” on the 7th August, 8 – 10PM!

Directed by Kevin Tong, “It’s a Great Great World” is set in the Great World Amusement Park in the 1900s. Also known locally as, “Dua Seh Gai”, the Great World Amusement Park is one of the three “worlds” in Singapore, along with New World and Gay World!

The film revolves around the history of Great World Amusement Park, the legendary amusement park of Singapore. It is an interesting film to catch, because you get to experience how life in Singapore used to be like in the mid 1900s! Do you know? Great World Amusement Park used to be the top dating place in Singapore? It was the USS of that time!


 

Bask in nolstagia with our NDP theme songs!

I’m sure most of you have heard this year’s NDP theme song!

Watching this video reminds me of the times when I was still a primary school kid, we would always have National Day celebration in school, and we are always required to sing the National Day song. It was pretty awkward because the hall will be playing the music, and there will be a teacher jumping around trying to hype up the atmosphere while the students sings along hahahaha!

Times have changed, style of music had changed too. Here are some of my favorites over the years!

I have my entire weekend slotted up! I can’t wait to take a walk down the memory lane with the celebration of our Nation’s 50th Birthday! Makes me feel really old to actually realize how much things have changed over the past 20+ years. To be honest, I really miss the times where Snow City and Science Centre was one of our main school excursion venues!

Not forgetting the on-going ViewQwest SG50 promotion: From now till 9th August, sign up for our 1Gbps/2Gbps fibernet plans, you get to bring home a set of Sonos speakers from $65/month onwards! More information can be found here, :D
