Trivia / Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
Enforced Method Acting:
One of the series signature moments, Jason kicking the sleeping bag murder victims, was a result of Kane Hodder getting frustrated from several retakes of the scene.
Another well-known scene, Jason catching on fire at the climax of the film, was the result of the suit Kane Hodder was wearing catching on fire and not having it put out until the scene was finished.
Executive Meddling: The reason why Tina's dad doesn't look even remotely dead.
Fan Nickname: The film is called "Jason vs. Carrie" due to Tina's psychic powers.
It has also been called "Fri gay the 13th" due to a number of the cast being homosexual.
Missing Episode: All original negatives, including the cut gore footage, were destroyed by Paramount sometime in 1992.
Name's the Same: Contrary to popular belief, the Jeff Bennett in this film is in fact not the same Jeff Bennett who did the voices of Johnny Bravo, Petrie, and Dexter's dad.
Old Shame: For Jeff Bennett and writer Daryl Haney.
What Could Have Been:
The film was supposed to be much, much gorier.
Part VII was originally supposed to have Jason fighting Freddy Krueger, but due to Paramount and New Line Cinema being unable to reach an agreement, it was rewritten to feature a girl with telekinetic powers instead.
