A masked killer is on the loose, wreaking havoc on the passengers and crew. Or maybe he’s just on a fall foliage vacation? Freddy Krueger is in town, but he’s not killing dreamy teens anymore, and a certain young lady who crawls out of TVs is hanging around the Grove Arcade. Tickets are $26 and reservations are strongly encouraged.
