It’s been over 30 years since Jason Voorhees “took” Manhattan, but the hockey-mask-wearing, machete-wielding slasher has been spotted again on the streets of NYC. This time, he’s not looking to slash, dash, slice, or dice, rather he’s got a message for the citizens of “The Big Apple”: Wearing a mask can be scary—but not wearing one can be deadly.

For nostalgia’s sake, check out the trailer and synopsis for Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan below.
Mass murderer Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder) is resurrected from the bottom of Crystal Lake. After he kills a passing boat’s occupants, he stows away on a cruise ship filled with a high-school graduating class bound for New York City. Biology teacher Charles McCulloch (Peter Mark Richman) is on board with his niece, Rennie (Jensen Daggett), who has visions of Jason drowning as a child. They escape his bloody shipboard rampage, but, when Rennie and Charles reach Manhattan, Jason is close by.
