Two unlikely movies celebrating 25 year anniversaries today

Two diametrically opposite movies began playing in theaters on August 1, 1986, 25 years ago today.

The first movie was the infamous Howard the Duck.  Featuring a woman falling in love with a duck and an early appearance of Tim Robbins.  This movie nearly ruined Lucasfilm.

The second movie was Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives.  This installment is arguably one of the best movies in the Jason franchise.  Jason had died in the last movie, so a lightning strike would revive him and begin the reign of “zombie Jason”.  Plus it features the third actor to play the character of Tommy Jarvis.
