Our Score
Victim hears noise. Stops. Turns. Turns back. Jason appears from nowhere holding a machete/axe/spike (delete where applicable). Quick cutaway to next scene... The Jason formula hits rock bottom with this static, boring and threadbare episode, directed by B-movie make-up man John Carl Buechler. New Blood contains virtually no blood; the only new addition to the bubble-gum nihilism is a telekinetic girl who may be able to destroy Jason with her psychic powers. Buechler's direction might be faceless, but Jason goes about his gory business unmasked in this, the weakest Friday the 13th of all.


A telepathic woman accidentally sets supernatural serial killer Jason free to kill again, and soon realises she must use her psychic powers to defeat the monster and save herself from a grisly fate. Horror sequel, with Lar Park Lincoln, Kevin Spirtas and Kane Hodder.
