FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 7: THE NEW BLOOD

Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood Movie Review

Tina (Lar Park-Lincoln), a teenager with telekinetic powers, accidentally resurrects Jason Vorhees from the bottom of Crystal Lake while trying to bring her dead father, who also drown in the lake, back to life. Jason then starts killing off young people at a party. This is probably most known for being the first Friday film Kane Hodder played Jason—this is a good thing, as Hodder plays the character perfectly. The death scenes are plenty here, but a lot are cut away so you don’t see anything. That said, it does include my favorite death scene in Friday history.

This one

The acting in this movie is pretty bad all around, except Terry Kiser (Bernie from Weekend At Bernie’s), who is really good as the shady doctor. Of course you know throughout that it will eventually come down to Jason vs Tina, with, you know, Jason being superhuman and Tina having superhuman powers. This had the potential to be good, and their first meeting actually is, but then it falls apart. There is no consistency with the strength of Jason either. At times he seems unstoppable and then later a light hits him in the head and the impact is so much that it sends him flying into a basement. This is not the best of the series, but it is certainly better than the previous two installments.
