Update 1/3/12: We may have a special guest at this screening – Diana Barrows who plays Maddy in the film is doing all she can to get to Pville on Friday the 13th for a Q&A and autograph signing! We likely won’t know for sure if she can make it until a couple of days before, so do check back here or on Facebook for the latest.
“I have a special place in my heart for Friday the 13th: A New Blood because I snuck into the film with a friend in a theater in Hoboken when I was 12. It didn’t hold up at the time, and though it still seems to be stealing in distracting measures from both Carrie and Firestarter, director John Carl Buechler has a strong visual style, and the anxieties suffered by Tina (Lar Park-Lincoln) throughout the film are well thought-out by the franchise’s typically one-dimensional standards.” (Ed Gonzalez, SlantMagazine.com)
