Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

"Tommy only wanted to make sure Jason was really dead..."

Because they want to be sure of Jason Voorheesí death, Tommy and his friend dig him up and find the body of the killer. Suddenly, lighting strikes the body and the killer is brought back to life. Tommy flees and tries to alert the sheriff, who doesnít believe a word. All those who have been living in Crystal Lake for a long time know Tommy and his past and the sheriff fears he will spread fear.

Meanwhile, Jason starts killing incognito. Then, when the sheriff discovers the cadavers, Tommy is put behind bars, accused of the sudden murders. Jason is fiercer than ever and the sheriff will have to admit that Tommy, locked up as he is, cannot be responsible for the murders.





Since Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D, nothing has beaten this sequel in the matter of special effects, actors, development, actionÖ and murders. In fact, this could easily be the best movie of the series. A particular, humor-flavored attention has been given to the secondary characters. Taken in its entirety, these elements destroy Jasonís presence, which is the worst flaw in this movie.

John Shepherd doesnít accept the role of Tommy, reality that suffices to ruin a good effect of continuity in the series. Thom Matthews was the perfect option for The Return of the Living Dead but ridicules his character with his retarded manners.

Jason innovates and tries to kill as many teenagers as possible in the shortest time possible. He succeeds by impaling a couple and decapitating a group of friends in only one swing of his machete, to save some time. He even finds the time to engrave a happy face into the bark of a tree by using the cranium of a wannabe commando.

The other essential criteria that make this episode so good is that the killer is truly Jason and not an imitator, which ruined two of its predecessors (Friday the 13th and Friday the 13th: A New Beginning). Jasonís occult powers donít take part in this movie, which is a positive characteristic. These powers were featured in Friday the 13th Part 7: The New Blood and Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Mr. Voorhees gains a certain charm in this rethought formula because of his apparent calm: he seems more in control of the situation. Briefly, if you know someone who hasnít seen any Friday the 13thís, this is the movie to recommend.
