Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

I’ve watched a lot of Friday the 13th movies since I’ve started doing my 80s movie marathons (4, 5, 6, and 7), and I think this is my favorite one. If you think back on the series, this is close to being the most archetypical (at least of the ones I’ve re-watched). Sure, the mind powers of the girl are a bit silly, but you have a well executed zombie-like Jason, teens at Crystal Lake (doing silly teens things), and all sorts of gruesome kills — although what I’ve discovered re-watching these is that they’re not all that gory, you tend to not really see when the blade or weapon connects. When it comes to the series, I think this is a pretty great entry.
