Editorial Reviews

As a child, Tommy Jarvis did what many others died trying to do. He killed Jason Vorhees, the mass murderer who terrorized the residents of Crystal Lake. But now, years later, Tommy is tormented by the fear that maybe Jason isn't really dead.

So Tommy and a friend go to the cemetery to dig up Jason's grave. Unfortunately for Tommy, (and very unfortunately for his friend), instead of finding a rotting corpse, they discover a well rested Jason who comes back from the dead for another bloody rampage in Friday The 13th - Part VI: Jason Lives.

The transfer does look good though so 2nd worst doesn't mean that it's bad it's just too dark at times.

Naturally, Jason goes back to Crystal Lake(now called Forrest Green) and starts ripping through camp counselors like Santa rips through low-grade crab legs.
Sid the Elf
"Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives" is one of the very best installments in the Jason movie series, and is highly recommended for fans and non-fans.

*** ½ Out of 5

This was a really fun sequel and in my opinion the last great Friday the 13th movie; this one goes in a slightly different direction without straying from the formula; this one is sort of the Scream before Scream and the movie while a legit horror movie also spoofs itself and other horror movies while still paying homage to the series and horror flicks.

Not as cool as the original artwork, but far better than the old DVD, but that isn't saying much since the old DVD cover was horrid and this one isn't very good either.

AUDIO COMMENTARY- Tom McLoughlin, Bruce Green, Vincent Guastaferro
This is a newly recorded track and not the same as the one on Crystal Lake to Manhattan; Tom McLoughlin appears on the previous commentary and records a new one with the editor Bruce Green and co-star Vincent Guastaferro. This track is entertaining and a lot of fun it's informative and there aren't any lulls on the track, which sometimes happens.

Directed by Andrew Ceperley and I know a lot of people dislike these features, but personally they don't bother me. I'd rather this space be used for something with the movie, but it's not too bad.

This is a spoof of the series done in a documentary style, but doesn't make fun of the movies; this one covers the events of Jason Lives and is a really fun feature, while not great it does serve its purpose and again is a solid feature.

This review refers to the Paramount DVD edition of the film.

THE WHO'S WHO: Starring Thom Mathews, Jennifer Cooke, David Kagen, Renee Jones, Kerry Noonan, Darcy DeMoss, Tom Fridley, Tony Goldwyn, Ron Palillo. Score Composed By Harry Manfredini. Written and Directed By Tom McLoughlin. (R) For Violence, Gore, Profanity and Mild Sexual Content; 87m.; 1986.

WHAT'S GOING ON IN HERE?: For the first time since "Friday the 13th Part 2", it's the camp counselors who have to be on the lookout for everyone's favorite hockey-masked terror. After surviving years of torment from the memory of Jason Voorhees (C.J. Graham doing a commendable job), Camp Crystal Lake has changed its name to Camp Forest Green and is trying to start over. But you can't keep a hideously deformed psychopathic killer down for long. Barely surviving his own memories of Jason, Tommy Jarvis (Thom Mathews) has returned to make sure Jason stays down. But when he digs up Jason's body to perform a cremation, he winds up accidentally resurrecting Voorhees. Now, he has to find a more permanent solution that will end Jason's reign of terror once and for all. Director Tom McLoughlin ("Sometimes They Come Back") helms this film with assured skill, surrounding himself with the best crew and most adaptable mid-eighties cast he could find. Ron Palillo brings his "Welcome Back Kotter" role of Horshack back to the screen in an ever so slightly grown up version (as Allen Hawes) during the early scenes of the film (accompanying Tommy to Jason's grave). Tony Goldwyn's brief appearance as Darren foreshadows the talent he would go on to display in such films as "Ghost" and "The 6th Day". The likeably arrogant Tom Fridley brings some charm to the film as Cort. However, the ones to watch are Renee Jones and Thom Mathews.

Format: DVD
In Friday the 13th part 6, Jason would be brought back to life in effortless fashion. I remember even as a child watching this film and saying "well of course lightning would bring him back!" and shaking my fist at the silly pretenses of Friday the 13th part 5: The New Beginning. This film was the new beginning! Jason lived and would be appropriately placed into the horror movie hall of fame next to Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Mummy.

Tom McLoughlin is not a well known film maker but he wrote and directed this little gem. I suspect that he is very much a fan of classic and contemporary horror, from The Bride of Frankenstein and Black Sunday all the way to Critters 2: The Main Course. This is a film that understands our craving for a horror icon not be taken too seriously. Its dark and wry humor is served to us as sort of a self-parody. It is exploitation to the max. The moment Jason is resurrected by Tommy, basically our hero in the parts 4 and 5, we know we got what we wanted and Jason is even more unstoppable than before. Jason is free to run amuck and does he ever. He goes on a huge killing spree and we are basically asked to root for him and laugh all along the way. Things play out in normal formula from here and the movie is basically the same as the others except that Jason is no longer the villain. He is an anti-hero and Friday the 13th part 6: Jason Lives is a comedy.

As it turns out, the series switch over to comedy and abandoning the ideas of part 5 didn't turn out to be as good a decision from a profit standpoint, as part 6 still managed to make less money than part 5 and profitability of these films begins to diminish from here on.
