It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
Jason is back, but this time someone's waiting!
Tina possesses the gift of telekinesis, allowing her to move things and see the future, using the power of her mind. But when a devious doctor tries to exploit her ability, the gift becomes a hellish curse. Tina unwittingly unchains the merciless bloodthirsty Jason Voorhees from his watery grave, igniting a bloodbath that ends in the ultimate showdown in strength of mind versus pure evil matter.
First and foremost, it should be known that of all the well-known horror franchises the Friday the 13th series is my favorite. I think of the other long-running, highly successful series like: Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street and to a much lesser extent, Hellraiser, and Friday the 13th has the overall best track record. I enjoy each sequel almost on an equal level with a few minor exceptions, whereas I only like one sequel from the Halloween series. With 10 movies strictly involving Jason Voorhees (excluding Freddy vs Jason and that remake), I enjoyed all of them (enjoyed may be a strong term for Jason Takes Manhattan but I didn't hate it).
The slasher boom had basically two prototypes…
There's a legend around here. A killer buried, but NOT dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees' curse.
Back from the Ottawa Comiccon and I have the urgent need to rewatch a few films because of certain interactions I had there. It was my first experience at any type of convention like that and I have to say I had a blast. Being a horror fan the biggest draw for me going there were guests Bruce Campbell, Robert Englund and Kane Hodder. Little did I know Hodder would leave the biggest impression on me.
May 9th, 2014 is the day I first met Kane Hodder and started realizing just how awesome he is. The first…
Bad news Crews.
Someone needs to make a film called Crystal Lake Realtors because selling ice to Eskimos would be a walk in the park to these real estate agents. Crystal Lake and it's small community have been witness to over 60 killings at this point taking place during 5 mass murders over the course of 12 to 15 years. Yet it doesn't seem to effect the real estate much as people are still buying and renting cabins around Crystal Lake.
My math on that could be fuzzy as I'm roughing it, and I'm only counting 5 mass murders because I don't think Part V: A New Beginning actually takes place anywhere near Crystal…
Back to the dumpster. The editing is horrendous, the acting is terrible and the humor is mostly gone. Fucking recaps... I thought they were done with that. Worst Schwarzenegger impression of all times. Some potentially good kills ruined by MPAA. The sleeping bag kill was shown uncut in theaters, the victim being hit six times against the tree with the bag covered in blood, instead of just one quick hit in all other versions. Wish I would have been around to see that. Jason's dispatch tools are varied. What did he do, robbed a shed? Tina, the final girl has telekinetic powers. Couple that with a horrible performance and it almost turns into a curiosity. The nice guy who tries…
Kane Hodder weed wacking the good doctor. Melissa a real bitch but a sweetheart. Nick one of the smartest characters in the entire franchise. Tina the worst final girl. A WTF ending. The saving grace: Robin's boobs.
Kane as Jason elevates the sinister of Jason to the umpteenth level. having Jason able to walk through any wall, window, or door makes these recent affairs packed with tension. And the visible spine on Jason in this may be my favorite visual flare of the entire series. An all together menacing entry and no doubt one of my favorites of the series. The 13th franchise continues to have extremely strong climax sequences. New Blood just happened to be lucky enough to draw a decently entertaining first half with a very attractive telekinetic teenager.
One of the goofier Friday the 13th sequels (if that's even possible for a franchise that includes Jason Takes Manhattan). I like it and everything but something about it just doesn't work for me as much as, say, Part VI does or Jason Goes to Hell.
I do enjoy some of the kills though and wish Jason would use a weed whacker more often.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
De nuevo una leve bajada en la saga.
La trama no hay por donde cogerla y en gran parte carece de sentido. Los poderes que se le dan a la protagonista (se convierte en una suerte de Jason vs Carrie) no tienen mucha lógica; las motivaciones de ciertos personajes como el doctor tampoco quedan claros, y muchos de los jóvenes también son algo odiosos (el geek de esta película es más horrible que Shelly...y eso es duro).
Eso sí, tenemos la introducción del gran Kane Hodder bajo la máscara de hockey, y el enfrentamiento final de Jason contra Tina es genial.
Es una lástima que no dejaran que la película fuera tan gore como iba a serlo en un principio, porque habría resultado definitivamente mucho más divertida.
idk if it was because of kevin spirtas face or what, but i didn't completely hate this
This was the only Jason movie that I had never watched growing up. I was very intrigued by the fact that the main character had psychic powers. It was a little bothersome that all of the deaths were edited so heavily but the ending made up for that. I've never seen Jason look so gnarly!
Carrie vs. Jason
I like when Jason's tombstone blows up with some KISS-like pyrotechnics. And who even paid for his marker after all of the bad shit he's done? Some affluent, off screen baron? A macabre fan? An impressed camp counselor?
Shew pah pah tup tup chrawp
So much violence in this movie. Jason is killing people and the 1980s hairspray is killing the ozone. It's a slaughterhouse. I'm also at odds with the main character because she wears high Katherine Hepburn pants.
And the prosthetics are so awful. Jason's exposed rib cage looks like foam and model paint. Are we in the 1950s?
The party at the cabin was pretty sweet though, because they all balled out with cans of Slice soda. Beer is bullshit.
31 days of horror number 23.
Some of the claims I heard before beginning my watch-through of these movies included that this was in fact, the best of the series. That it had one of the most interesting plots.
I beg to differ, as I thought that there was little to be engaged in. I began to wonder throughout the film whether it was the central characters or the series itself that was tiring and unengaging. I think the idea behind the plot of this film is cool enough, but it seems that "girl with psychic and telekinetic powers can best Jason" is instead replaced by "girl with psychic powers occasionally finds that her psychic powers bother her, and her doctor is using her, so that's…
