A Nightmare on Elm Street

Friday the 13th
After years of abandonment, Entrepreneur Steve Christie re-opens Camp Crystal Lake despite the camp’s tragic past and rumors of it being cursed by black magic and bad luck. A particularly bad rainstorm leaves the young and naïve counselors stranded with an unseen killer. The counselors begin to die gruesome deaths one by one, leaving viewers on the edge of their seat hoping to find out who the killer is and if anyone will be left to tell this tragic tale?
This terrifying classic hardly needs an introduction, but for those of you who are unfamiliar, Halloween, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, is about a young boy who murders his sister on Halloween in 1963 and is sent to a mental hospital. Over a decade later, the terrifying brother returns to his hometown, only to wreak more chaos.
A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy, outcast girl who is sheltered by her extremely religious mother, discovers she has a gift – or rather, a curse – when she unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after bullying pushes her to the limit at her senior prom. If you know the ending – don’t tell! Let your friends experience the thrill.
The Evil Dead
Ashley “Ash” Williams, his girlfriend and three friends hike to a cabin in the woods for a fun night in nature. Once at the cabin, they find an old book, the Necronomicon, whose text reawakens the dead when it’s read aloud. The friends unknowingly read the book aloud, summoning the evil dead. The group must fight to survive, or risk becoming one of the evil dead themselves.
