Hot! B-MOVIE BINGO: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN


FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN (1989)

Showing Tuesday 10/4/2016 at The Hollywood Theatre

In the spirit of Halloween, we’re showing our first Jason movie! It’s rather difficult to find horror movies that align with our list of action and cop movie tropes, and this one works only because it features New York City in the 80s, which featured a lot of guns and violence.

So, after miraculously coming back from dead yet again, Jason tags along on a sexy boat ride to New York City. After killing nearly everyone onboard, a few survivors escape into the bowels of New York, where Jason attempts to hunt them down so he can kill them.

From the back of the VHS box:

The Big Apple’s in big trouble, as indestructible psycho-fiend Jason Voorhees hits the road to New York City–and paints the town “red”. After a shocking return from beyond the grave, the diabolical Jason ships out aboard a teen-filled “love boat” bound for New York, which is soon transformed into the ultimate voyage of the damned. Then one of his terrified victims escapes into the nightmarish maze of Manhattan’s subways and sewers, only to confront Jason one final time.

Rated R. Directed by Rob Hedden.
