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.

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES DVD

*** ½ Out of 5

THE MOVIE
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.

PACKAGE DESIGN
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.

LOST TALES FROM CAMP BLOOD PART 6- 7:16
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.

THE CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE MASSACRES REVISITED PART III- 9:34
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.

I was getting ready to start my Freshman yr. of high school when this movie came out. I was shocked by how good it was, it had a plot, and great actors to make this a great film. The slasher flicks were taking off in the 80's and even though I didn't like most of the Friday sequels, I have to say 1,2, 6 are the best. I will say 4-The Final Chapter had the shock value that will make Ur pulse race. If Ur looking 4 a Friday the 13th movie that has it all pt. 6 is Ur movie, and U will not be disappointed.

THX,

I know nobody will agree with me but in my opinion best of the series. it ushers in the supernatural Jason instead to the hillbilly Jason, puts some fun and funny parts in the series, has a good ending for the tommy Jarvis story and creates the platform for the next 5 sequels which most are not good but Jason is always the baddest man on the planet. also the sound track is pretty good

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.

I intend to go back and review the other installments in the series at some point (probably after watching them again), but I have to say that Part VI really struck me as interesting. The movie comes off as really self-aware, playing on much of what made the previous installments what they were and using that to maximum effect. Some may dislike the rather clean approach to this movie, as the movie really isn't very graphic with respect to its gore, and some may dislike the humorous approach throughout, but I consider Part VI to have some of the best pacing of the series.

In Part 4 (The Final Chapter), Tommy Jarvis killed Jason but in Part VI, that all changed. After being released from the mental institution that he was committed to in Part 5 (A New Beginning), Tommy visits the grave of Jason and accidentally resurrects him from the dead after lightning strikes a post that he was using to stab the dead corpse of Jason. Once Jason has risen from the grave, he kills one of Tommy's friends and Tommy flees to the sheriff's office where he tries to explain to Sheriff Garris that Jason is alive and just killed one of his friends. Garris thinks that Tommy is hallucinating but Tommy tries to state his claim, Garris falls on deaf ears and locks Tommy up, making him spend the night in jail.

The next morning, Garris's daughter Megan and her friends Cort, Sissy, and Paula, also counselors, arrive to report Darren and Lizbeth missing. Tommy warns them that Jason is alive, much to Garris's chagrin, but his warnings are shrugged off as superstition. Garris decides to release Tommy and orders him to leave town by escorting him to the county line of Forest Green. Instead of leaving town, Tommy rushes back to Jason's grave to try and prove his point, only to discover that his grave has been reburied by the caretaker---unbeknownst to him, the body of Tommy's friend murdered by Jason, Hawes was inside of the casket.

What follows is fast paced back and forth action throughout the remainder of the film. Tommy tracks down Sheriff Garris' daughter, Megan to try and assist him in sending Jason back to the grave. At the same time, Jason is quickly slashing his way to Crystal Lake, one body at a time. As the plot gets thicker, the trail gets bloodier.
