Before you get carried away, I have not come here to slam John Carl Buechler’s Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. It might not be my favorite entry from the series, but I love all of the installments and like this one more than some of the others. Also, seeing the uncut version of this is one of those holy grail moments for me that will sadly probably never happen.
But this trailer is awful. The reason this is even remotely relevant to me is that I saw this in the theaters when I was a kid (pretty sure it was right before Critters 2) and I thought it looked AWESOME. The memory of how amazing this trailer looked to me at that time has lasted a quarter of a century.
So imagine my surprise when I looked it up today and got this. It’s just so flat. It literally cannot be bothered to make an impact.
What awesome trailers from your childhood suck now?
