Episode #294 – Friday the 13th: Part 7: The New Blood

This week in our month of horror Bryan takes us back to Camp Crystal Lake to hang out, go for a swim, and get slammed against a tree while hiding in a sleeping bag. That’s right, we’re talking the super fun Friday the 13th: Part 7: The New Blood and pointing out all the things that make this such a delightful watch.
