You can really see the progression of the films as they get to part 7 and you have the resurrection scene or release scene depending what you want to believe performed by a psychic. So you know from the off there is basically going to be the same plot concepts as the last film. This does not make it a bad film but it is nothing new or original in the series or the genre.
You have your new group of partying teenagers and a rampaging Jason who has to be beaten again at the end, it is all quite predictable. I have to say that again there are some good death scenes and some interesting and funny jokes in this film but nothing to startling.
So 3 stars for this, not the worst in the series by a long shot but certainly not the best and not worth watching out of context of the Friday the 13th series.
