Do You Remember When..,

.., Bernie met Jason in Friday 13th Part 7, The New Blood (1988): Dir John Carl Buechler

Every fan of 80’s movies will know just how hilarious walking corpses are, and I’m not just talking about Jason Voorhees. In 1989 Terry Kiser would star as film’s funniest lifeless corpse Bernie Lomax in the awesome Weekend at Bernie’s, one of my all-time favourite stupid 80’s comedies. So imagine my delight when, a few years back, I was making my way through the Friday the 13th franchise and reached Part 7, only to discover Terry Kiser starring alongside Hollywood’s most recurring celebrity corpse, Jason Voorhees. Within the space of a 5 years Kiser would get hired to be killed by a corpse, play a corpse, and a voodoo reanimated corpse. How many people can say that?
