Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) Reviewed

( 1988 )
So stale was the series at this point that they begin to crib ideas from the Nightmare on Elm Street series. There’s a psychic girl here…or telekinetic…or something. Her gift gives her more inexplicable powers than Superman’s in Superman II. Of course there’s a showdown – this time electricity is employed to kill Jason, who is already a zombie. What?! If she can telekinetically direct a live power line to light Jason up, why can’t she telekinetically chop him to bits with a drawer full of steak knives? Even though it’s the best written of the series up to this point, it’s still lame crap by any other standards. Made me really want to curl up with a nice copy of Carrie and Nightmare on Elm Street 3: The Dream Warriors. *½
