Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Five 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
Academy Award-winning filmmaker Billy Wilder nearly came out of retirement to direct this movie, but was refused final cut by Paramount. When Wilder was briefly attached, it was reported that Jack Lemmon was also attached in an undisclosed role. See more »
(at around 1h 16 mins) As Jason approaches the smashed barn door, some of the wooden planks in the left side of the door disappear between shots. See more »
OK lets get it all out that annoys people the most about this movie. Jason Voorhees is not the killer. In the film Tommy Jarvis (from the last film) is sent to a new place to get back to his own self like before the events of the Final Chapter. As he stays he and keeps going into fits of rage and having hallucinations of Jason, as this goes on real murders are happening all over the area by some unknown killer. I don't want to ruin it for people who haven't seen it but honestly behind Part 2 and 4 this is one of my favorite squeals. Many people bash this movie because Jason is not the killer which i think is ridiculous. People honestly don't think, in the original, Pamela Voorhees was the killer not Jason, Originally it was to be an only film, NO Jason, NO nothing. But many people liked it and wanted more. after Jason's death in Final chapter, they wanted to show he was really dead, by bringing in a new killer. I thought that was smart then keep bringing Jason back again. My main point is, Give it a watch! its extremely entertaining, there is a high body count and amazing score. Yes it has its week moments but overall its a lot of fun to watch. Any true Friday the 13th fan must watch!
