Every ‘Friday the 13th: The New Blood’ Death Tallied in “Kill Count” Video

Love it or hate it, it’s the film that brought Kane Hodder into the mix.

Just last week we celebrated the 29th anniversary of director John Carl Buechler’s Friday the 13th: The New Blood, which is fittingly the subject of James A. Janisse’s latest video in his popular “Kill Count” series. For those who haven’t been following along, Janisse has been tallying up the deaths in every single installment in the Friday the 13th franchise, with a new episode dropping each and every Friday. We’re honestly kind of sad the Friday fun is almost over, but here’s hoping he heads to Elm Street next!

As mentioned up above, The New Blood saw Kane Hodder play Jason Voorhees for the first of a record four times, which makes it one of the most historic installments right off the bat. The film’s iteration of Jason was nastier looking and, well, deader than ever, and in it the masked maniac was put up against his most worthy adversary up to that point: a woman named Tina who happens to have Carrie-like telekinetic abilities that allow her to bring the fight to Jason like never before.

Infamously, The New Blood was completely butchered by the MPAA, a fact that Janisse notes several times throughout the video – it’s impossible not to when you examine the film’s kill scenes, as most of them take place off screen and are severely lacking in visible gore. It’s a huge bummer but hey, at least The New Blood gave us that iconic sleeping bag kill scene.

Check out the latest “Kill Count” video below!



  • Vesuvian Villain

    Christ Jesus, does this guy own one T-shirt that isn’t a V-Neck? I appreciate what he’s trying to do, but how about a turtleneck sweater once and awhile? Like a real man?

    • Creepshow

      He has sensitive nipples. And the one brand shirt that doesn’t make his nips flare up, is only made in a V-Neck. Next time be a little more sensitive (oops bad choice of words).

      • Vesuvian Villain

        Had I known his nipple affliction, I would have NEVER trivialized his t-shirt choices. I hope one day I can seek forgiveness for the line that I have crossed.

        • Creepshow

          Well good then. Let’s consider it a lesson learned. Now if you will excuse me, I need to go ice down my areolas.

          • Vesuvian Villain

            If I were you I’d ice down one nipple while heat compressing the other, keep those nipples on their toes. Show them who’s boss.

        • I forgive you, but my sensitive nipples do not. They’re sensitive like that.

      My very first thought when I started the video was, “another v-neck?!?” Did he film these in 2012?

      They are enjoyable, though, despite the cringe worthy fashion sense.

    I love this guys videos, hope he keeps it up with other horror films after the F13 ones are done.

    • I will! Scream will be the next franchise I tackle, since it’s nice and short. 12 movies was WAYYY too much work (so expect there to be a wait before I tackle stuff like Nightmare or Halloween)
