Super cool! Of course we’re all big fans of this all time classic slasher. We got the chance to see it in theaters last Halloween at Marcus Theaters. Experiencing it on the big screen is absolutely recommended! What a year for Friday fans. It’s returning to theaters. There’s that killer boxed set coming soon. What a great time to be a fan!
