Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) Review:

Jason Lives is part VI of the long series of Friday the 13th sequels and is also one of the worst of the series in my opinion. Every other sequel before this one had a little something to make it special: the 2cd was surprising, the 3rd brought us the hockey mask, the 4th had a crazy ending and the 5th a relatively interesting plot. Unfortunately, this one has got nothing. Instead, it is just a compilation of Jason killing people.

This time, the film’s writers did not even try to bring Jason back to life in a credible way and instead chose the supernatural way. Even if there were multiple hints before Part VI, this sequel is the one which finally crosses the line in showing Jason as a supernatural creature instead of a deformed human and thereby makes him truly immortal.

The rest of the film can be easily summarized in one line: “Jason slaughters whoever enters its camp.” As usual in the Friday the 13th‘s sequels, the complete lack of story is compensated by more and more kills. For this reason, there are a lot of characters in this film, and so an increased number of murders. The problem is that all these characters are simply not interesting to watch when are not being slaughtered because they are a completely shallow stereotype of the dumb victim.
