One of the best of the Friday series. After 5 previous films (Jason was in Part 2,3 & Final Chapter,his mom starred in the first & a pissed off paramedic wtf? was in part V) the Friday the 13th series was starting to become somewhat cliched. Idiots go to Camp Crystal Lake (you would think after Part 2 nobody would go within 100 miles of the place) and Jason (or his mom or the paramedic) kill them. Part VI Jason Lives made one of the most intelligent decisions possible with the character by turning him into a zombie like being that cannot be killed. Another plus is this film also added humor to the mix. This is a very entertaining film that does exactly what it set out to do (fix the franchise after the mess left behind by Part V).
Jason lives! Whoo-hoo!

"After the stylistically flat, albeit somewhat entertaining, Part 5, the Friday the 13th series roared back to life with what is arguably the best movie in the series (albeit one cut to shreads to receive an R rating).Tommy Jarvis (well played by Return of the Living Dead star Thom Matthews) is still suffering from hallucinations and violent outbursts as a result of his killing of Jason in 'Final Chapter'. Enlisting the aid of a buddy (Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter of all people), Tommy heads out to Forest Green (formerly Crystal Lake) to dig up the serial killer's corpse and completely destroy it and, hopefully, his trauma for good. I guess a different body was mistakenly cremated in Part 5. Things go bad when an electrical storm reanimates Jason's corpse and the now killer zombie strides off into the forest to look for victims while the guilt plagued Tommy runs to get help for the quite understandably disbelieving police.While writer/director Tom McLoughlin's script is witty and self-deprecating in tone, and some of the jokes are pretty good, it is nonetheless more of the same. However McLoughlin does give this series entry a strong visual style - something almost all the others lack - Jason standing atop a crashed motor home being a good example. This is one well worth seeing, both for fans and non-fans alike. Recommended."
The best ( and scariest) "Friday" of them all!

"WARNING! -SPOILERS AHEAD! This is without a doubt one of the coolest teen slasher films i have EVER seen! The acting,humor,scare factor and a ton of other things make this film simply incredible! C.J. Graham ( who plays Jason) is REALLY good almost as good as Kane Hodder, who was Jason in parts 7-9.The direction is also very good,and the scare factor, WOW! This is one of the few films that actually frightened me( sure, it"s more funny than scary, but still, I don"t know why it scared me so much.)Jason"s costume looks VERY VERY cool as well ( he looks AWESOME with that bullet riddled shirt and commando belt, and those gloves he wore look real nice too.The special FX are also very impressive ( I was stunned at the scene where the RV flips over and him standing on top of it.)I only have two complaints about the film-1, Jason"s mask doesn"t come off like in previous films( you can see it at the beginning,but not very well because of the rain and dark lighting),and 2, the film is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too short ( it doesn"t even last two hours!).I was also a bit sad at the fact that it could have been much gorier, but that doesn"t ruin the fun.Overall,an EXTREMELY well done movie. Rated R- contains gory violence and strong language."
Classic and best in the series

"You'll wonder why the lead man does what he does to unintentionally revive Jason Voorhees but hey, the movie's gotta start somehow. A couple of bloopers, but nothing that serious, especially for its time. It's basically "Jason's Playtime", as he mauls his victims viciously. Considering Jason's a living dead guy stronger than ever, and this movie timewise looks like it was made after 2 of its sequels, it's worth picking up especially with its pricetag. Some real good spots in it and a rememberable horror flick. They don't make em like this anymore. :("
