The first true betrayal of the original

The New Blood features an excellent look for Jason and a neat set up, but seems to stumble on characterization and pacing.

Jason V physic the movie. This one flip flops a lot among fans but id say im in the like it spectrum. While this film got chopped down with censorship so if you look for gore in these films you will not like this one at all. However I come to these films for Jason and his goofy ass. And this whole last act with the girl v Jason is so entertaining to watch. Check it out and either you will hate it or love it.

While it does have its differences this movie wasn't exactly great. This movie did have Kane Hodder and his great fire stunt and a person with Telekinetic powers. It also had some really bad actors in the form of crappy sexy teenagers. And the ending was by far the worst Friday ending in history.

They really had the creativity to make a bad movie!

The last 15min is the only entertaining part of the movie. The characters are lame and forgettable and their acting doesn't help their case. They have almost no character development of any kind. The kills are clearly cut so short which is disappointing. Also, a lot of the time they show Jason approaching someone from behind which I think ruins the suspense and shock. Kane Hodder does excellent work, but comes off as too aggressive sometimes.

Despite an interesting premise involving a telekinetic woman, everything here seems to be on automatic pilot, with this being just another lazy, brainless and colossally awful sequel that has nothing of the cleverness and wit found in the series' previous installment.

Painfully boring, emotionally leaden, and stupidly self-serious, this one sags with self-importance while at the same time it lacks the imagination to truly take off where it counts.

Kane Hodder introduces the "heavy breathing". Enough said. Great shot and detail of Jason's face during the final scene. Couple of great jump scares and booby shots for the male horror fan!

A very strange installment, Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood is nonetheless entertaining. Jason is awesome, the kills are neat (even though the constant censoring kind of hurt most of them), and the final act is god damn amazing (even if a bit ridiculous). Overall, not a bad installment by any means.

Some interesting characters , but great kills and first Kane Hodder movie . Best looking Jason .

My favourite movie in the franchise, believe it or not. Cool looking Jason, Kane Hodder's first appearance as Jason and an enjoyable plot to this weird and wacky movie. A girl with telekinesis and a very stupid ending that I liked. The only downside was the kills. Some were poorly made and zoomed in on some sort of close-up right when Jason's weapon sank into the victim. Not all the kills were bad though! The sleeping bag kill was by far the best, and the party horn is a close second.

It's not the best Friday the 13th sequel, but it's also not the worst. The New Blood shows us what a Jason vs Carrie fight could be like, even if the girl is a different character. Kane Hodder is also great as Jason. Sadly, all the other teenagers were so unmemorable they may as well have not had names. Additionally, most of the kills are heavily censored, although that does make one or two of the better, making for an uneven and mediocre entry in the franchise.

Perfectly fine 80s flick
February 6, 2018
The very lowest point of the series, even worse than 2 and 5 (But i'm one one of those who really digs 9 and 3 so who knows)
½ December 31, 2017
A bit of a dud. Raking over all ground but throwing in a supernatural twist just seems forced.
Basically Carrie vs Jason and it's about as good as it sounds.
Always an inventive kill and the sleeping bag is one to remember.
Kane Hodder is a more physical Jason and is probably the best thing in this...

one of the better ones of the series!!!!! of course after part 6 being a big success, part 7 had to up its game, and come back bigger and stronger and it did, know a lot of peeps, put this in the middle of the list of rankings, i would put it, in the top 5, i know there are many flaws in this film, but behind that, is a well done masterpiece, oh and i like how they wanted to make something different, 7.5/10 !!!

The Friday the 13th Franchise can be best described as one idea, "It's a horror movie." As such, it should be a crime to take the movie too seriously. These movies are best watched as a source of mindless, slashing entertainment and not as some deep and complex story with hidden morals. So, if you're into a story that is filled with speculation and underlying themes, then this series may not be for you. In the 7th installment of the series, it should be wise for the filmmakers to come up with new ideas to keep the film fresh, so why not have our favorite slasher villain, Jason Voorhees, fight someone with telekinesis? This concept brings a fresh take on the series as it introduces more supernatural elements. While the previous film resurrected Jason from the grave, that was only the beginning for this new trend that the franchise introduced. The series has had many ups and downs throughout the years, which each film scoring differently with audiences and critics alike. Albeit this film is far from the worst in the franchise, it truly has one of the blandest and unoriginal endings of the series that feels like the film falls flat at the end. Despite its flaws, it's still just a horror movie that should only be watched when you just want some entertainment to pass the time.

I had somewhat enjoyed the previous 3 films but now the franchise is heading back down in quality. As everyone has said this is basically Carrie vs Jason which is not a terrible idea for a film. There were some parts that were interesting and I actually liked the look of Jason in this film about the best. Unfortunately the writing, directing and acting took huge steps backwards to almost laughable quality. Certainly not the worst film in the franchise but not one that I particularly enjoyed.
