Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) **1/2
D: John Carl Buechler
C: Lar Park-Lincoln, Terry Kisler, Susan Blu, Susan Jennifer Sullivan, Kane Hodder
P: A telekinetic girl accidentally uses her powers to unleash Jason from his watery grave so that he can resume his killing spree.
Part 5 attempted to add some elements of psychology & mystery. Part 6 threw in some humor. By the time part 7 came around, these Jason films were all starting to look awfully similar. Part 7 attempted to differentiate itself from the previous entries by going with a Carrie vs. Jason type storyline. It's not enough to breath new life into this franchise, but at least they tried to do something different, something original.
The New Blood features a bit more character development then usual. The New Blood also served as the jumping off point for horror icon Kane Hooder. And while it's not as bloody as the previous films, for once Jason has a worthy opponent to duke it out to the death in the film's climatic battle. [R] 90 mins.
