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?
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.

The New Blood has a legacy of being edited by the MPAA and that's how it is. All the gore was cut, but a big thumbs down to Paramount for not letting the rich chick get naked. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Alan C. Logan
