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.
10 years after killing the goalie hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees, Tommy Jarvis has grown up in various mental hospitals unable to get over the nightmares about Jason's return. When Tommy is sent to a rural halfway house in New Jersey for mentally disturbed teenagers, a series of grisly murders begin anew as another hockey-masked killer begins killing off all people at and around the residence. Has Jason returned from the dead to re-start his killing spree? Has Tommy decided to take over the reign of Jason, or has someone else? Written by
Years after Tommy Jarvis (John Sheperd) killed Jason Voorhees for good, he has been sent to mental facility to one other home where he is now placed in a halfway house for troubled teens as he tries to get rid of the painful memories of Jason. A fat patient named Joey (Dominick Brasca) who annoys the other patients and one of them named Vic (Mark Venturni) hacks him up then gets arrested. However things may look safe at the haven for Tommy as he befriends a young boy named Reggie (Shevar Ross) who is the grandson of one of the workers. But unfortunately a killer is on the loose in the town but is it really Jason back from the dead or someone in his footsteps?
Considered by fans as the worst of the Paramount Friday The 13th movies, this one isn't that bad as they said it was. This movie was originally considered a new beginning after Jason died in the last movie and the makers wanted to make the series into something different with a new killer in each installment which is kind of similar to "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" in concept of a different horror movie in each installment. Fans of Jason rejected this idea and wanted the goalie back and they got their wish with the next installment. This part of the series co-stars a cameo by Corey Feldman and even has Miguel Nuenz Jr. of "Return of the Living Dead" fame which should surprise fans of the horror genre.
There's a lot of graphic killings in this one as it has a body count of 20 dead people with some good kills of skull-crushings, implements, stabbings and that kind of thing. A couple of sexy naked chicks including a topless blonde waitress who is just gorgeous as hell and of course some twists with turns.
Overall it's not that bad.
