Top Picks for Friday the 13th Weekend 2019

We wait all year for this moment - the start of our favorite season and with the notorious Friday, the 13th Weekend upon us, we can't think of a more suitable marker to welcome the first weekend of Halloween thrills and even a few haunt openings!


Massachusetts
You can choose from two "Friday the 13th" film screenings in Massachusetts on its namesake date.
Coolidge Corner Theatre has lined up a super creepy evening outdoors along the woods with a double-feature screening of the1980 original and the 2009 remake enjoyed under the stars at Rocky Woods in Medfield in conjunction with their After-Midnite film program.

If Salem is your jam for horror movies, there is an indoor screening of "Friday the 13th" at the Deacon Giles Distillery and co-hosted by Speakeasy Donuts who conjured up this amazing Jason Voorhees donut you see in the picture! Count us in!

If you haven't already heard, the Harvard Square Ghost Tours are BACK! With Thursday through Sunday night tours every week from now through Nov 2nd.
Better yet, you'll be able to ring in Friday the 13th weekend with expert story-telling of "gruesome murders, bloody battles, untimely death, and plenty of irreverent humor" during your 90-minute tour of Harvard Square and local burial grounds. Suitable for all ages but parental discretion advised. More details.

Plus, the debut of Rob Zombie's new film "3 From Hell" has 3 special nights of screenings early next week all across New England. Here are the details for locating screenings in Massachusetts.
