Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
During the night scene while waiting for the girls, Tim mistakingly calls Professor Lockart "Pop". (Charles B. Pierce, who plays Tim, is the real life son of Charles Pierce, playing Lockart.) See more »
This is a movie about a Bigfoot like creature in the swamps of Arkansas. Apparently a professor takes two of his students and one of the students friends into the swamp to find this creature. This poses the question "what kind of class are they taking anyway?" Is it a class on the creature or what? Whatever it is it is probably an elective. During their trip they meet all sorts of unappealing characters and Tim one of the students seems to be unable to wear a shirt. Perhaps he has a skin condition, because the stick can't be proud of his appearance. They also go from one flashback to the other. Some of the flashbacks paints the creature as relatively harmless, others as a creature that will kill. Still others paint it as a creature that interrupts people while they are using the bathroom in a scene you'd have to see to believe. In the end they find the creature, but by golly the creature is less horrifying than Old Man Crenshaw. A more disgusting guy you will probably never see. Heck, after seeing him the appearance of the monster is anti-climatic. Though you do see the monster for a sec in the middle of the film. The professor has radar and it appears and the professor says "Oh, no". This makes no sense because the whole reason they went to the swamp was to find the creature and it comes right to them and the professor seems upset. Another scene that drags to long is the girls ordeal in the swamp when they get the jeep stuck. The constant whining of the one girl is annoying, but I can understand how she feels giving she is just the friend and isn't taking the class on the Boggy Creek creature.
