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…
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.
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…
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…
rubbish death scenes = rubbish Friday the 13th film
An average outing from the series, much more conventional compared to "Jason Lives"
I liked Tina as a main character and her arc was an interesting one, even if it had little to do with jason.
It's obvious at this point the franchise is getting stale, this film plays it safe, and suffers for it. Great Jason costume.
In three words:
A bit silly.
dropped the ball on this one. new tack did not work. disappointing.
According to this film, Telekinesis can raise the dead.
I am so glad this film didn't let me down! I was so worried it wouldn't hold up. Personally i still think Part IV: The Final Chapter is my favorite entry thus far. But this one was damn good. It really tried something new.
Everyone knows this is the 'Carrie V Jason' entry in the franchise and tried something new. And it really works. Plus Kane Hodder appears here as Jason Voorhees in his first entry in the franchise!
I'm really trying to not be a objectifying bastard here, but the 80's girls in this are just... breath takingly gorgeous. The 80's had some beautiful women, they were all just perfection. The main girl in this. The 'Carrie' character, Tina,…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Seven down, 5 more to go...telekinesis, Jason, and an asshole Doc.
I would watch any film on earth, yes I would watch any film on earth, but I won't watch this...again. This series is getting really boring, real fast.
Just keep Jason dead, drowned, buried, whatever. Stop reviving him, please, (false hopes).
OH, AND GUESS WHAT!!! ANOTHER FLASHBACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and Jason can survive an explosion that was created by a small can of gasoline (it blew up a house by the way) but he survived. Telekinesis wins, I guess?
Anyways, I have nothing else, just like this franchise. Look at the bright side, after this film, Jason decides to go sight seeing instead of staying at camp.
Ben: "Happy fuckin' birthday!"
Jason picks up someone in a sleeping bag and bashes them against a tree in this film. Watching it, I wondered if perhaps I've been too harsh on some latter sequel slashers; the fun part is being the victim of the most inventive kill. It might seem brutal and fucked up to laugh at a young woman being smashed against a tree, but I have to assume that as an actress, she knew that was the most awesome moment in the film. I'd be fucking honored to go out that way.
As Hollie points out, this is the film where Jason gets his ass kicked by a young woman, too, so there's that going for it. Unlike her, I did…
Friday the 13th part VII: Carrie vs Jason.
A fun, flawed, ridiculous slasher movie with a good enough cast and the coolest Jason has ever been.
