Friday the 13th: A New Beginning

FRIDAY THE 13th on… Friday, the 13th….? (So meta!)

The Rio Theatre‘s Friday Late Night Movie series continues on September 13 with the fifth installment of the legendary franchise, 1985’s A NEW BEGINNING. In this installment, homicidal maniac Jason returns from the grave to cause more bloody mayhem. Young Tommy may have escaped from Crystal Lake, but he’s still haunted by the gruesome events that happened there. When gory murders start happening at the secluded halfway house for troubled teens where he now lives, it seems like his nightmarish nemesis, Jason, is back for more sadistic slaughters. But as things spiral out of control and the body count rises, Tommy begins to wonder if he’s become the killer he fears most.
