WHAT'S GOING ON IN HERE?: Another film has come and gone with the absence of any camp counselors. That's not necessarily a bad thing. By putting the Jason Voorhees character in minute variations of his slaughtering ground, the filmmakers have kept the films interesting. This time, the central focus is a group of mentally and emotionally challenged teens staying at the Pinehurst Youth Development Center run by Matthew Letter (Richard Young) and his assistant Pam (Melanie Kinnaman). However, there's more on their minds than learning how to readjust to society when Jason starts carving his way through them. Once again, the directorial reins of the series have been handed over, on this occasion to lightweight upstart Danny Steinmann who shows an amazingly adept skill considering he hasn't directed anything since. One problem that has plagued this series since its inception lies in the character development. However, like most of the other entries, this is a prime example of generic characters being filled by skillful actors who take their roles to a higher level than they should deservedly reach.Read more ›
Tommy Jarvis has never looked better. In the Final Chapter he's a normal kid, in Jason Lives he's just a former crazy who's all better. In this one, he's quiet and you can tell by the look on his face through most of the movie he's one push away from snapping. The scene where he confronts "Jason" in the barn is the best--it gives me goosebumps all over!! Tommy is also a character you can both pity and cheer. In this one he really shows that.
The girls are hot and have well-developed bodies, the murder scenes are the most disgusting I've seen in a while, and the LANGUAGE! Good god, I needed to wash my TV speakers out with soap after watching it!
Jason is the man, don't get me wrong, but this addition gives you a little break from all that stuff you're more than used to. What's more, the ending--when combined with how Part 6 begins--leaves you with much to think about. Give it a chance. Jason would want you to.
