Here’s one for the books. A chick gets her comeuppance by way of a novelty party favor, complete with a honk sounds and all! If you weren’t smart enough to read my headline to the post, then if you’re a true horror fan, you still know that I’m talking about the classic party favor kill of Kate in the entertaining, if not ridiculous, Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood. And I’m spotlighting that kill this week on Sunday Bloody Sunday because in a movie where the death scenes are aplenty (sleeping bag, head crushing, etc, etc, etc….), this one got a big chuckle out of me and still does to this day. No real fanfare to set it up (although there feels like there should be since it involves a party favor and all), so let’s take a peek at the aftermath of Kate’s run-in with Jason!
Best of the Friday the 13th movies IMO, if this had the uncut scenes inserted for all the deaths, this would be a unanimous pick.
A big shame that they can’t get a proper release of Part 7 with all of the cut footage intact….this franchise has always gotten the shit end of the stick (thanks mostly in part to Paramount)
This movie is a pre-cursor to Adam Green’s Hatchet series… This particular Friday the 13th… The kills are classic, Kane Hodder makes his first appearance, and John Carl Buechler is directing? Wins handed all around.
The kills were definitely the highlight and I agree with the Hatchet reference for sure.
