Many fans didn't like "Part V - A New Beginning" because Jason wasn't in it. I happened to love it. Nevertheless, we were all happy to see Jason rise from the grave like a vampire emerging from its coffin. Jason's resurrection via a lightning bolt isn't all that unbelievable. Dr. Victor Frankenstein brought his creations to life all the time using the life-giving energy harnessed from lighting bolts.
Now that Jason is alive, he immediately sets out to do what he does best - kill attractive teens who are promiscuous. (Because of Jason, I held onto my virginity as long as I could; having braces and birth control glasses helped.). He begins walking toward Camp Crystal Lake, killing everyone in his path. The triple beheading made movie history. I'd like to see Freddy or Chucky do that. "Jason Lives" had a lot of decapitations. In fact, I read where this film had the highest body count of the series.
I must admit, another reason why I love this movie is the heavy metal soundtrack. My favorite song is Alice Cooper's "He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)" - a great song for summarizing Jason's career as a serial killer who preys on promiscuous teens. I will definitely be playing it when the "Friday the 13th" remake hits the big screen on Friday, February 13th. Jason returns for a new generation of horror fans to enjoy. Be rest assured . . . when Jason lives . . . everyone around him dies.
Happy Friday the 13th!!!!
From the premise, it's clear that "Jason Lives" isn't taking itself too seriously, and that the franchise has taken a badly needed tonal detour. (This is a full decade before "Scream" performed the full overhaul on the slasher yarn). But "Jason Lives" differs from the other Friday the 13th films up to that point in that it is Tommy Jarvis rather than Jason Voorhees who is the true protagonist in this story. In this respect, "Jason Lives" resembles the "Evil Dead" series more so than any other Friday the 13th film. Like the setup where Ash must vanquish the evil spirits he's unwittingly unleashed, "Jason Lives" is about a man who's opened a pandora's box, and spends the rest of the film trying to stuff the beast back into that box. Definitely worth watching for fans of the 80's B-movie and slasher genre. A killer-B all the way.
