The Friday the 13th franchise celebrates it 40th anniversary this year, and the original terrifying film that started it all has been restored and remastered for a return to the big screen!
Paramount and Fathom Events will be bringing 1980's Friday the 13th to select theaters nationwide on Sunday, October 4th and Wednesday, October 7th.
Event attendees will also be treated to a special featurette, Secrets Galore Behind the Gore, where they'll "join revolutionary special-effects and makeup artist Tom Savini for a look at some of the groundbreaking gory great moments in the original Friday the 13th."
Directed by Sean S. Cunningham and written by Victor Miller, Friday the 13th follows the new owner and several young counselors who gather to reopen Camp Crystal Lake. Years ago, a young boy named Jason Voorhees drowned, and a series of vicious murders occurred thereafter. Despite locals’ warnings that the place has a death curse, the new crew continues on to relaunch the camp. One by one they find out how unlucky Friday the 13th can be, as they are stalked by a violent killer.
Tickets are on sale now via FathomEvents.com and at participating theater box offices.
