In this “clever, playful thriller” (New York Times), voodoo and terror meet when an innocent looking doll is inhabited by the soul of a killer who wasn’t ready to die.

JASON LIVES: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI (1986)
U.S. | 86 mins | Dir. Tom McLoughlin | 35mm
As a child, Tommy Jarvis did what many others died trying to do. He killed Jason Voorhees, the mass murderer who terrorized the residents of Crystal Lake. But now, years later, Tommy is tormented by the fear that maybe Jason isn’t really dead.
So Tommy and his friend go to the cemetery to dig up Jason’s grave. Unfortunately for Tommy, (and very unfortunately for his friend), instead of finding a rotting corpse, they discover a well-rested Jason who comes back from the dead for another bloody rampage.
A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)
U.S. | 92 min | Dir. Wes Craven | 35mm
Nancy is having nightmares. Something in her haunted sleep wants to kill her. Something monstrous. Something unstoppable. But she has more to fear. Much, much more…
Her high school friends, she discovers, are having the same fiendish dream. And they are being butchered – systematically slaughtered in their sleep by the predatory monster of their shared nightmare.
When baffled investigating police ignore her chilling explanation, Nancy prepares to traverse into the hellish realm of nightmares to wage her own extraordinary battle with the ghastly killer. There, she confronts the dark, decade-old secret of the very real NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET!
