REVIEWED By Steve Davis, Fri., May 20, 1988

From betwixt my fingers peered
exactly what my soul had feared.
To the bone, a nerve shoots chilling,
Jason on a rampage killing.
There is no God, there is no heaven,
It's back: Friday the 13th, Part VII.

It's the same old story, seven times around,
you just can't keep a good corpse down.
’Spite a massacre the film before,
To Crystal Lake, they keep coming more.
And one by one, they end up dead –
a sliitted throat; an axe in the head.

I've seen them all, against my will,
Poor victim of an editor's ill.
I've suffered as no man has known,
A constant witness of this movie clone.
If Part VIII comes, I'll close the door,
Quoth this critic: Nevermore.
