Although the Popcorn Frights Film Festival may take place every August, the team behind the fest celebrates the genre all year long with monthly screenings at Savor Cinema. This month is no exception, as Popcorn Frights is bringing The Big Apple to Fort Lauderdale with a 30th anniversary screening of Rob Hedden's Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (in case you missed it, read Tamika Jones' Class of 1989 retrospective on the film).

Featuring a live performance by the talented team at Infinite Abyss Productions (the same group behind The Gravedigger, which world premiered at Popcorn Frights), the Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan screening will take place at 10:00pm this Friday the 13th.

We have additional details on the Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan screening below, and to learn more, visit:

FEATURING A LIVE INTERACTIVE PERFORMANCE BY INFINITE ABYSS PRODUCTIONS, “I ❤ NY” WOODFIRE PIZZA, POP UP DOOM ROOM VIDEO STORE, SPECIAL NEW RESTORATION OF THE FILM, AND OTHER SURPRISES!

Nothing can get in the way of mainlining our brains with MAXXXIMUM FUN as the masked menace hacks and slashes his way through The Big Apple in our Friday Night Frights 30th Anniversary Presentation of FRIDAY THE 13TH: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN! Starting with a spark, Jason Voorhees (the inimitable Kane Hodder) is resurrected after the anchor of a passing cruise ship drags a live electrical cable over his corpse and pulls him along for the ride to the big city. From there, Jason does what Jason does best; murders using a number of creative objects like a harpoon gun, a guitar, a sauna rock, a barrel of waste and his own fist when he decapitates a dude with a single punch! Look out New York, here comes hell in a hockey mask!
