Synopsis


Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives
This impressive entry in the popular horror series brings back the relentless killer Jason Voorhees, this time as a supernatural zombie. Tommy Jarvis, now played by Thom Matthews, accidentally resurrects Jason when he impales the killer's corpse with a metal pole during a lightning storm. Numerous murders follow, beginning with Tommy's friend (Ron Palillo) having his heart torn out of his chest by the zombie killer. Implicated in the crimes by a mean-spirited sheriff (David Kagen), Tommy is freed from jail by the sheriff's daughter, spunky Megan (Jennifer Cooke). The cast converges on Camp Crystal Lake, which has been renamed "Camp Forest Green" by superstitious locals, in time for Tommy to send Jason back to the bottom of the lake, if only temporarily. Harry Manfredini's score is among his best, and the makeup by Martin Becker, Gabe Bartalos, R. Chris Biggs, and others is outstanding. Cooke makes an appealing heroine as Megan, although Matthews' Tommy has lost the interesting mental disturbances of previous entries and becomes just another bland hero. Tom McLoughlin's direction is effective, and the film has a memorably funny supporting turn by Bob Larkin as a grumpy drunken caretaker. Alice Cooper sings the title song, "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)." Although no classic, this is a solid horror film with a witty script and engaging characters. Jason would rise again to face a telekinetic teen in the disappointing Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    Nice Deluxe Version of a Jason Classic

    After the disappointing "A New Beginning", the "Friday the 13th" franchise had a "reboot" with "Jason Lives" -- a smart and funny installment. Predating "Scream", this one has self-aware characters and funny in-jokes (note the paintballer's headbands), while always taking the Jason character itself seriously. Not much plot or setup, but one wouldn't expect any out of a sixth entry in a long running series. The making-of featurette on the disc is great and has on camera interviews with lots of key players and cast - but could be a little longer. The commentary (which is different than the one in the 2004 box set) is fun and informative. Some great deleted scenes will be a delight for fans; however, the rest of the extras on here are not that special. Definately worth an upgrade if you only have the original movie-only DVD.
