Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Jason Voorhees clearly never received Dr. Suess’s “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” as a gift growing up, because — despite surviving a supposed drowning, then being partially killed thrice, and officially killed thrice more — over the course of seven films the guy never left Crystal Lake. Hell, by contrast, after only six entries the Leprechaun had gone to L.A., Vegas, outer space, and tha Hood (twice) — which is why the glorious Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is such a silly inevitable treat, for the big guy is practically burstin’ to get out! Not only does VIII feature the most offable cast of expendables yet, but it also contains some of the most insane and ridiculous kills of the entire franchise (rooftop boxing practice, anyone?) Come kick back with us on Friday, May 13th as we revel in pure hockey-masked absurdity and destruction with one of our fave Jason sequels — plus, come early for a pre-show montage of every single previous Friday the 13th kill!
Dir. Rob Hedden, 1989, 35mm, 100 min.
