If you’re in the Los Angeles area and you happen to be in the mood for some mediocre Friday the 13th action this weekend, you might be interested in a midnight revival screening of the Paramount era’s darkest day!
In all seriousness, I enjoy Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. It just happens to be my least favorite of the eight Paramount distributions. But that wouldn’t be enough to prevent me from attending this screening if it was happening in my backyard. Incidentally, there was a screening of Jason Takes Manhattan in my backyard earlier this month. It happened to fall on one of two weekends that I was out of town, and I’m still incredibly bitter about it.
At any rate, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood turned 25 this year. So go celebrate with not just a 35mm print but also an introduction and brief Q&A with the film’s editor, Barry Zetlin.
By now I fully expect any self-respecting horror fan in the Los Angeles area to be familiar with the New Beverly Cinema. I’ve never been to LA, and even I know where it is at this point. For the one guy who has no idea: it’s located at 7165 West Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, one block west of La Brea. This screening is hosted by Brian Collins of Badass Digest (and Horror Movie a Day). For more info visit the New Beverly Cinema website or check out Horror Movie a Day.
