Horror prequels are generally a bad idea. I think the original movies showed us just enough of Jason's backstory to be effective. If we needed to know more, they would have shown us. Same goes for Psycho and that garbage Bates Motel show. If their goal was to make Norman Bates as boring and unscary as possible, then they're doing a good job. Psycho works based on what you don't know about Norman Bates. Seeing Norman Bates getting driving lessons or auditioning for a musical with his mom is everything Hitchcock wouldn't do. And to be honest, Sean Cunningham made a terrific slasher film with the original Friday The 13th... but he's been pretty off-base about the series ever since. Jason Goes To Hell, Jason X, etc. I don't think he really gets the whole Jason thing. Wasn't he adamantly against Jason coming back in the first place?
