I'd say one of the biggest hits of this year's Comic-Con had to be the Neca exclusive Jason Voorhees 8-bit action figure. And for those that remember the game from when it actually game out, the latest movie in the series that was out in theaters at the time was 'Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood,' hence the image of Kane Hodder as Jason on the front of the box. All I can say is I have tremendously fond memories of seeing 'Friday 7' in theaters. I went with a large group of fellow 12 year old's and convinced our guidance counselor to get us in. I was too young to be aware of the MPAA problems. All I knew was it had a bitchin' opening and a great fight between the unstoppable Jason and Tina (a Carrie-esque telekenetic).
Why do I even mention all this? Because this Saturday night, July 27th, our friends Brian Collins (Bad Ass Digest, Horror Movie A Day) and the New Beverly Cinema are hosting a special midnight screening of this awesome sequel, and I will do everything in my power to recapture the magic of my first theatrical 'Friday The 13th' experience by attending and cheering along. This is a 35mm print screening and editor Barry Zetlin will be on hand for a quick introduction and Q & A with Collins prior to the films' start. The New Beverly is located at 7165 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90036. Tickets will be available at the door but if you'd like to buy tickets in advance, you can hit up the Brown Paper Tickets website. In the meantime, enjoy the trailer and teaser poster for this event below!
