The Hollywood Theatre’s bimonthly program QUEER HORROR meets again on a rare Friday the 13th for nothing other than FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD! Now sponsored by Royale Brewing Co, this 30th anniversary 35mm screening opens with a preshow tribute to Camp Crystal Lake and the Haus of Voorhees hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and starring Seattle's SPARKLE LEIGH and PDX boylesque star JAXIN YOFF!

Directed by John Carl Buechler, 1988’s FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII follows telekinetic teenager Tina (Lar Park Lincoln) after she unwittingly frees Jason (Kane Hodder) from beneath Crystal Lake and fearlessly commits to returning the hockey masked-slasher from whence he came! Featuring out queer actors Kevin Spirtas, Susan Blu, William Butler, Craig Thomas, and Jeff Bennett in a camp-fest that can only be described as Carrie Goes to Camp Crystal Lake, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD is as insane and unstoppable as the bloodline of Pamela Voorhees herself!

Friday, April 13th at 9:30 PM | $10 |




QUEER HORROR is a bimonthly festival of genre works by queer artists, performers, and filmmakers questioning horror’s relation to queerness and what it means to identify with the monster. Maybe it’s the fact that queer people are so often relegated to shadows of otherness that the horror genre is more immediately relatable for us. We grew up with boogeymen. We’ve lived with boogeymen. Goblins and ghosts are a welcome escape from real-life monstrosities.

From the work of James Whale and John Waters to Patricia Highsmith and Clive Barker, horror has deeply impacted queer culture and sensibilities and QUEER HORROR asks why. QUEER HORROR is programmed and hosted by Portland’s premier drag clown Carla Rossi and her human avatar Anthony Hudson, with artwork by resident artist Jason Edward Davis. Crawl into the crypt at
