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 Lake. Also the 12-15…
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…
Lo único que merece la pena es ver el rostro de Jason en la escena final.
Mira, que sí Viernes 13, que sí, que lo que tú digas.
Jason wird das erste Mal von Kane Hodder gespielt und erhält dadurch eine deutlich beeindruckendere und bedrohlichere Physis. Ansonsten greift recht schnell die bekannte Freitag Routine von Beobachten und Wegschlitzen, die leider unter augenscheinlichen Schnitten für das R-Rating leidet.
Erst ab Minute 60 dreht der Film auf und bietet mit dem Kampf Jason vs. Telekinese einen der unterhaltsamsten Showdowns der gesamten Serie.
With The New Blood, the series returns to the grim, black-and-white tone of The Final Chapter. If anything, this entry in the series only goes to show how much variety there is in the Friday the 13th series for those who care enough to spot it. Using "Jason kills a bunch of teenagers" as a template, the series has gone from whodunit to parody to splatter to sleaze to broad comedy and back.
But while this entry tries something new (a telekinetic Final Girl! who can move large objects! and bring a porch down on Jason's head!), it never once feels as fresh and vibrant as Jason Lives. At this point, we know these kids are going to die -…
The Friday the 13th series has really surprised me with it's quality. I didn't find the first two films very enticing, but 3-7 have all been rather enjoyable, and in this sense, it's the exact opposite of Nightmare on Elm Street
The New Blood may loose the firm grasp of self-awareness that made Jason Lives resonant, but it makes up for it with a healthy amount of 80s cheese. Tina, the Carrie stand-in protagonist of the film is easily the most likable of any the Friday series has seen, the doe-eyed innocence coupled with the supernatural capacity for violence just works when facing off against the murder-incarnate that is Jason Voorhees, and the finale is rather enjoayble and ends in…
Tina is a teenager with telekinetic powers who’s going to a cabin in the woods with her mother to get some help from her therapist, Dr. Crews (Terry Kiser). She seems to have some trauma from the time she unintentionally killed her father. I know how that sounds, imagine sitting through this movie. While there, she tries to bring her father back to life and unwittingly brings Jason back to life. She is understandably scared and tells Dr. Crews, who thinks she’s crazy. Tina becomes smitten with a visitor in another cabin who tries to befriend her. The rest of the people in the other cabin think she’s a freak and want to nothing to do with her. This movie…
Jason vs. Carrie is perhaps one of the best Final Girl sequences ever committed to film, but the rest of the movie is castrated by the MPAA.
This feels like two movies rolled into one. Like the original pitch was about a psychic girl dealing with her abusive doctor and semi-negligent mother while also coping with the death of her abusive father which she feels herself to have caused years earlier. But then, Paramount said they'd make it a film if they could add Jason into the mix and sell it as a "Friday the 13th" film.
Believe it or not, I don't mind the fact that it feels that way. At least they tried something semi-new. Not a great film, hell, not even just a good one, really, but entertaining enough for one watch. Can't say I'll ever revisit it again, though, or at least not by my own choice. Maybe if I catch it on cable or something, though. There are worse ways to kill 90 minutes.
About an hour into this film, there's a jump scare in which a girl opens a closet door and a cat jumps out. Only there's been no mention of a cat at any time before, and the characters are borrowing the lake house from somebody's uncle. So, whose cat is it, and how long has it been in there?
-Holy stromboli, this movie can blow me. It only took seven films but we've finally got the first outright stinker of the series. Aside from the telekinesis twist (more on that in a bit) THE NEW BLOOD has zero energy or creativity. For example, the title screen I always look forward to is just a hockey mask that splits in half after blue light pours through it. Talk about a snoozer. Remember last movie when Jason was doing the James Bond gun barrel shtick? Good times.
-Yeah, so that telekinesis thing. The final girl in PART VII is Tina (real name Lar Park Lincoln, not kidding, say that 5 times fast) and she inexplicably has telekinesis that she uses to…
