Anyhow, my favorite line in this movie has always been by those 2 little douche bag kids, when they are hiding under the bed ... "So what WERE you gonna be when you grew up?"
Some people say part 6 is "comedy". If you think bad actors talking with bad accents screaming bad dialog is laugh out loud funny, then you'll love this movie. You can always tell when "jokes" are happening because people are screaming or talking really fast or mugging directly at the camera. It's absolutely stupid. You might as well play a laugh track at random times of the day and call that humor.
So some completely unrealistic characters, who are all awful ignorant people, get killed in ridiculous ways. Yawn. Oh and a lady says curse words and her boyfriend is dumb and then the camera cuts to a scene made for the trailer. Clearly hilarious. Sigh.
The great music of earlier movies is gone. The music is on the level of bad TV after-school specials back in the day, save for a few rock tracks made to sell soundtrack albums.
The directing is also awful. The first two shots of the film are clearly reused stock footage, then the third shot is something unique. Hey, director. Here's a trick. Use the good shot first. I'll take a check for $1million please thanks.
There's no setup, there's no tension. This is a garbage movie made by people who don't think very highly of their audience.
Here's a quick example. In the opening of the film a character is digging up Jason's dead body and stabbing it with a spike. This doesn't seem smart but fine. Then a lightning bolt hits the spike. That's a little too Dr. Frankenstein for me but I'll give the movie that. Then the character comes back and thoughtfully pulls the stake out of Jason's body. Why? Why would this character do that? The only reason, is so Jason can stand up without a spike though him. But why? Jason could just stand up and pull the spike out himself. The only reason the character pulls the spike out, seems to be, that the character is too stupid to live. At least that's my read. So now I don't care if this guy dies. Sadly, this character is the hero. It's the opening of the movie and I'm already completely done with caring about the hero. That's a bad start. The movie just limps all the way home from there.
Gaps in logic. Awful characters you're not invested in. Horrible music. Bottom basement direction. There's nothing redeeming about this movie, even as a rental.
Give me $3milllion and the same camera crew, and I could direct a better movie.

Not that Jason Lives was bad, more a film of two halves. The first half was a horror comedy with lots of nice touches. "I've seen too many horror movies not to know that a man in a mask is not going to be friendly," says one soon to be victim. Or the gravedigger, on seeing Jason's open grave, turns to the camera and says knowingly, "The things some people consider entertainment." Then there's the encounter with a paint balling group on a team building exercise and taking it very seriously. This is all good witty stuff.
Alas the second half is more the routine the stalk and slash which not even the unexpected severed head gag can raise above the ordinary. It's all competently done, though much of the actual killing is off-screen and relatively tame, but the horror-comedy section is definitely the best part.
