A one way Breeze Pass to the first person who responds correctly to the following question: What horror movie was playing at the Greenbriar Mall Movie Theater when they busted the windows out? (yes, Greenbriar once had a theatre! It used to be downstairs right across from the public library…but I digress..) I’m racking my brain trying to remember as it was all the way back in ’83 (maybe ’84). While I thought I had it, IMDB is saying something different.
Can somebody also tell me why Hollywood has re-made Friday The 13 for “a new generation?” This is not an umpteenth sequel but a modern retelling of the actual movie. There ain’t no new horror flicks to make? Can’t we at least do a Scream: The Next Generation revealing Coco Arquette as the Chuckie Doll-like slasher in the “suprise ending” to end all surprises? Help me get this people.
If I remember correctly, they ended up closing the theater in Greenbriar Mall because too many people showed up and rushed the entrance causing the front windows to come crashing down in a hail of glass and metal. I never even made it downstairs there were so many folk jammed up in the place! All I remember, really, is going to Baskin Robbins instead for Daiquiri Ice with my guls and going back home. Another wasted day at Greenbriar Mall, where ‘there’s always something new for you-oooooooooo‘.
Were you there? Do you remember? Are your kids *or you* (most studio guilty pleasure movies are ok) planning on going to see this thing? “A” discussion in the COMMENTS please.
