Jason Gets His "Classic" Hockey Mask, 2 December 2001
Author: Ed Moorehouse from Everett, WA

This is The Best of The Endless Friday the 13th Sequels. It Pleased me most because Jason picked up his Hockey Mask Logo in this film. I also Enjoyed The Terrfying Climaxes and the Un-Forgettable Ending. Jason Seems a Bit more Human than he does in Films after this. When we enter his House we find a Beat-Up Shack with a Ran-Down Toilet and some old Tables. This Film Seems to Label him as a Retarded Freak, Rather than a Vicious Monster. Rent it if you like Horror.
