Friday the 13th 7: The New Blood (1988)

Almost as good as the previous entry, this sixth sequel to the 1980 classic has more to offer than one might expect. Originally developed as “Freddy vs Jason,” the movie adds telekinesis to the franchise’s growing supernatural repertoire, and although it makes the series jump the shark a bit, it rejuvenates the formula along the way. Lar Par Lincoln is pretty good as final girl Tina, and it’s great that Jason finally has an adversary who is evenly matched, leading to a deliriously fun showdown between the two.
