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…
Though it's hokier touches and some formula tediousness undercut the strengths of "Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood," this chapter of the lengthy horror franchise earns points for adding, uh, new blood to the plot. This new blood comes in the form of a telekinetic teen who, ultimately, battles the hulking Jason Voorhees in an attempt to vanquish the lumbering stalker. It all makes for a watchable genre film.
The film has its share of weaknesses, but its addition of the telekinetic character enlivens the narrative. That narrative misses ample opportunities to set off in new and more interesting directions and eventually loses steam as it settles into its traditional formula of violent slayings, but it has a…
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…
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.
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…
Tina hat telekinetische Fähigkeiten und hat mit diesen als kleines Mädchen vermutlich ihren Vater umgebracht. Um die Geschehnisse endich aufzuarbeiten, reist sie mit ihrer Mutter und einem Psychater an den Ort des Schreckens zurück. Dem Crystal Lake. Mit ihren Kräften befreit sie Jason aus seinem nassen Grab, ist aber auch die einzige Person, die den Maskenmann jetzt noch aufhalten kann, bevor er sich an einer neuen Gruppe Jugendlicher zu schaffen macht.
Nach dem das famose Metakonzept des Vorgängers an den Kinokassen scheiterte und Freddy Krueger mit seiner Nightmare On Elm Street Reihe dem Friday Franchise längst den Rang abgelaufen hatte, musste das Konzept der Reihe wieder auf den Prüfstand gestellt werden. Neueste Idee? Man stelle dem übernatürlichen Jason eine ebenfalls…
Why were the woods so bright? Stinker.
Zero gore, fucking you Reagan era!
5/100 only for the sleeping bag kill, and nothing else. Fuck this movie.
‘Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood’ has some nice touches making it the last instalment in the franchise until the 2009 reboot or 2003’s ‘Freddy vs. Jason’ if it can be counted that is passably entertaining. There is just enough here to make it that… just. As it is terribly paced with a distinct lack of suspense and tension, the kills are extremely lacklustre in their execution cuts or no cuts and the teen characterizations and the performances of this supporting cast is probably the worst of the entire series.
That nice touches first though. The proceedings are encapsulated in a constant sombre atmosphere not like the creepiness and twitchiness of the gialloesque atmospheric encasing of the first…
Even for a Friday the 13th movie the characters are remarkably charmless, devoid of any personality and also strangely unattractive. The murders are not all that ingenious but the addition of a Carrie-style telekinesis subplot makes for a welcome addition. Storytelling is non-existent and mainly focuses on running through the forests looking to find yet another character with the expected consequences. Mind you: Jason's eventual killing-off is so gaga, it's probably my favourite of the series.
Yet another one of those flicks that I am pretty sure I saw before but am damned if I recall anything of it.
On paper, "carrie vs jason" is a horrible idea... the movie isn't horrible.
