[Remember This?] The Awful Trailer For ‘Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood’!

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?

    I don’t think it gets worse than Part V – although I do like the part in the beginning when the crazy kid goes all Gael Grimsrud on the other kid. The rest of it is just a big letdown.

      Sure but I’m talking about the trailer in this post.

      I actually like part 5 though!

  • REC03

    this trailer isn’t even bad. for an older trailer its actually decent.

    Terrible trailer to match a terrible entry. Jason Takes Manhattan, however, had a great trailer. 😉

    i’m probably one of the few people that has enjoyed every single Friday The 13th movie made. i do think the trailer is terrible but i love the movie itself

    It’s just become eroded with time. When you first saw it, it was fresh and gritty, and had an edge to it. These days we lot all suffer from “horror burn”. It’s not the trailer that’s changed, it’s us.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I don’t think the trailer was bad. It’s just aged like everything else.

    Whatever player you guys use no longer works in Chrome for me since you changed the website layout etc, can you just stick to the youtube embed option?

    I like it! I miss narration now its all text and all trailers look the same. Black screen with text and then beats of loud “epic” music with short clips edited quickly. Then a close up of the main character slowly giving the tagline… All cookie cutter shit!

  • Saren Nevac

    Loved this movie, good to finally have a hero that can stand up to Jason and do him some damage.Also awesome Jason costume and well acted by Hodder as you can see Jason getting annoyed by her.

    Would love a new Friday the 13th were Tommy Jarvis and that psychic girl team up to take Jason down once and for all.

  • Jesse Sikora

    I have pretty much the same taste as I did as a kid. If I thought a trailer was shit back then I probably still think it’s shit now, and If I liked something back them I still like it now. The only difference is I probably like it more because of the nostalgic factor.

  • boaaa82 .

    hahaha classic

  • It’s still good to me! part 7 is my fav entry & Kane will always be the best Jason.

  • VictorCrowley

    Definitely seen worse. If I had never seen part 7 this would make me want to watch it for sure. I’m with you on the uncut version. This NEEDS to happen.

    • AlanMorlock

      Unfortunately much of the cut footage was straight up destroyed.

  • burma

    It’s not that bad
