Product Description

Ever since homicidal maniac Jason Voorhees got trapped in chains at the bottom of Crystal Lake, the nearby summer camp has operated without a hitch . . . without a murder. But one of this season's happy campers has brought along a deadly secret.

Tina Shepherd can see the future and levitate objects. Her doctor knows just how dangerous telekinesis can be, but he's out to exploit her, not help her. And now it's too late. Tina has accidentally unchained Jason from his watery grave, and the bloodbath is underway.

Tina's special powers are her only hope for survival. But what chance does a teenage girl have against an axe-wielding maniac?

A philosophical quandary: when we truly get a glimpse behind the mask, do we like what we see? This eternal question is directly addressed in chapter 7 of the famed Friday the 13th gross-out series. Here, indestructible killing machine Jason meets his match in the form of a telekinetic teenage girl. Yes, it's "Carrie Goes Camping," although the young lady with special powers might have picked a better vacation spot than Crystal Lake, which has an awful track record for young blondes in tight jeans. This installment is exactly no better or worse than the previous Jason-o-ramas, with the added bonus of a climax in which the imperturbable Mr. Voorhees actually duels someone with supernatural gifts to rival his own. Yes, he does lose his hockey mask (the heroine mind-wills it to pop off), and the results ain't pretty--but then, neither is the Friday the 13th franchise. --Robert Horton

This is easily one of the better efforts in the Friday series but it suffers just like the rest of them from cuts, cuts, cuts. This is, apparently, one of the most cut entries by far as the MPAA rejected many of the more elaborate gore effects. Director John Carl Buechler is a respected makeup effects man and was a good choice to helm a Friday flick. A lot was put into the effects, especially for Jason. This marks Kane Hodder's first turn as the hockey-masked killer, and he gets the best makeup effects for the role.
The New Blood's Jason is a full-blown, rotting, hulking zombie. Check out the exposed ribs and spinal column under the shredded clothes. We also get a look at Jason's face, or what's left of it (including a big hole in the cheek, exposed teeth, rotting flesh, etc). That alone is enough for fans to check out the film, even if you're just a casual horror fan.
The ::ahem:: story involves Tina (Lar Park Lincoln), a Carrie-like teen girl who travels back to Crystal Lake years after an unfortunate and uncontrolled episode with her telekinetic powers led to her father's death. Accompanying her are her mother and her psychiatrist. The latter is played by none other than Terry Kiser, aka Bernie Lomax from Weekend at Bernie's(!) Being a psychiatrist in a horror film, he's naturally evil, trying to exploit the girl's powers for his own gains. (At one point Tina finds newspaper clippings about Jason and the murders in the doctor's desk along with a gun. It's never made entirely clear whether he was concerned and afraid of their surroundings or if he wanted to use Tina to raise Jason from the dead).
Next door to the not-so-happy family, of course, a house full of young, stupid, would-be victims.

Spoilers ahead.Read with caution.
Despite the relatively poor reviews it's received and the heavy lack of gore,Friday 7 is actually pretty cool and in my opinion is the fourth best of the F13th series (6,4 and 2 being the others). The script is a bit laughable.A girl with psychic powers that has the ability to lift objects and use them as weapons.It is a bit dumb,but all in all works out well.Jason looks REAL ugly and scary in this one (wait until he's unmasked.You'll probably faint because he looks so gruesome and disgusting).The acting isn't too bad,but is a bit laughable in parts (example,at one point Nick finds his brother Michael impaled on a tree branch.He just stands there.Would've you screamed in terror or had a heart attack if you found a friend or family member like that?) The best actor of the whole film overall is undoubtably Kane Hodder.His performance as Jason is very menacing and devilish and breathes countless amounts of life into the character.You've never seen an actor quite like him.The special F/X are Ok,but the film really shines in the make-up department.As I said earlier,Jason looks very gross when he's unmasked. It's truly the definitive Jason.You can see his spine,rib-cage and various other bones exposed. He looks fantastic.The scares are terrific.Creepy music and a very dark atmosphere make this a horribly scary movie.My only gripe is the severe lack of gore.There's hardly any.Hopefully,as Squall suggests,a remastered VHS and the DVD will contain cut footage,deleted scenes and loads of extras.At least the film's bloodier than Part 8. Overall,Friday 7 is a very enjoyable and scary chapter of the series.It's a lot better than Parts 8 and 9 (as well as Parts 1,3 and 5),but it's not quite as good as Parts 2,4 and 6.It's still excellent though.Rated R for mild slasher violence,mild profanity,brief drug use and some nudity.

In "Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood," we get to hear a narrator tell us the backstory. I don't know who the narrator is; the credits don't mention him. It sounds like Donald Sutherland, but I bet it's not.

Mr. Narrator reminds us of what has happened to this point in the saga, ending with the fact that at the end of Part 6, Jason was weighted down and drowned in Crystal Lake. Mr. Narrator informs us that "people forget he's down there."

This is just stupid. A man responsible for nearly 100 murders in the space of 10 years does not just disappear from public memory. Furthermore, when Tommy Jarvis drowned the bastard in Part 6, surely the cops and scientists would have then retrieved him, picked him apart, and studied him. His hockey mask would be on eBay. There would be an A&E "Biography" episode about him. People don't just "forget he's down there."

But the forgetting is necessary for the story to move forward. It will be helpful if you, the viewer, have forgotten a few things, too. For example, remember how in Part 6, Crystal Lake changed its name to Forest Green in order to escape its bloody past? Yeah, go ahead and forget that, because it's Crystal Lake again now.

After Mr. Narrator spins his yarn, there's a prologue (which takes place on Friday the 13th -- CREEEE-PY!) in which a little girl who looks like the "Poltergeist" little girl accidentally uses her psychic powers to kill her dad. Surely we all have made errors like this at some point in our lives. It occurs outside the family's house on Crystal Lake, mere feet from where Jason is chained to the lake bottom, "forgotten" by the locals.

Next thing you know, it's several years later.
