For the past two summers, Daily Dead has taken a look back at memorable genre movies that were released 30 years prior. This year, the “Class of 88” was in the spotlight as horror writers celebrated their favorite movies all month long with special features on Daily Dead and the site’s Corpse Club podcast.
Continuing with the Class of 88 theme, I joined Daily Dead Managing Editor Heather Wixson and fellow Daily Dead contributor Bryan Christopher for a conversation about Friday the 13th Part VII – The New Blood. We chatted about the film’s practical effects, stunts, over-the-top characters, censored scenes, and the bloody showdown between final girl Tina Shepard and the zombie-thing in the mask—Jason Voorhees. We also dished on our favorite kills from the series and our ultimate Friday rankings!
