#FlashbackFriday the 13th…Jason Lives!

Well darn.  Just when you thought it was safe to go back to camp!

As we bring our Throwback (kid-friendly Halloween-esque commercials) / Flashback (movie trailers) celebration of Halloween to a close, we have one more movie trailer to show you.

Are you ready?

So, here’s the teaser…

They’re all afraid…but of whom?

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives was released on (as the commercial said) August 1, 1986, and was a return to the original “Friday the 13th” formula.  This meant resurrecting Jason Voorhees so he could unleash fresh terror on the newly-reopened (and renamed) Campe Crystal Lake, which was renamed as Forest Green.  Hey, you can slap a coat of paint on something, but that doesn’t always fix the original problem.  It was the first to be critically favored since the original film, going on to gross $19.4 million.  Until 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason, this was a fan favorite.  I actually just saw it this past summer, and yes, it is pretty good!

And there you have it.  Our Halloween celebration isn’t over yet.  Come back next week for a few more spooky treats as we count down to Halloween!

Have a great Friday!
