Quotes

Megan: Maybe he was telling the truth. Just because our parents keep telling us that Jason was only a legend doesn't mean it wasn't true. What if he did come back here, looking for the camp counselor that caused him to drown as a boy, searching for the one that decapitated his vengeful mother? And you do know what today's date is, don't you? And I can think of only one thing even more terrifying.
Cort: What?

Jason really LIVES...
19 December 1999 | by (crystal lake) – See all my reviews

With the exception of part 9, ALL of the "Jason" movies just keep getting better! In my honest opinion, this sequel comes in third as far as Jason "sequels" go (ps:part 1 will always rule) and this sequel comes in right after parts 2 and 4. Part 1 is simply a classic.

Director/Writer Tom McLoughlin has literally recreated Jason after the turn of events in part 5, replacing the character's once-human figure from parts 2-4 with a better, more menacing, grosser, unkillable, zombie-like figure. In this installment, it seems that Jason has stopped chasing his victims and has become a little more quiet and subtle about his "kills".

Most of all, McLoughlin really makes "Jason Live" in this movie. Jason thrives!! McLoughlin, in my opinion, has directed what is probably the most "scary" Jason of them all. I've seen them all a hundred times, and I still jump when he appears in the window in front of Sissy. The acting is extremely acceptable from its predecessors, especially the roles of Tommy Jarvis (Thom Matthews) and Sheriff Garris (David Kagen). Even the camp counselors liven up their roles a bit. Though it was inevitable for them to be slaughtered, I still thought that it was cool that I still remember their characters. There is just something about this one. Jason Lives has an excellent story line that delivers, however, the gore is relatively low at certain times, but McLoughlin never fails to bring it all back with shots of that very very bloody machete of Jason's.

This sequel contains many of my favorite death scenes so far in the series. What McLoughlin did in this movie that previous directors didn't was he actually made Jason unpredictable. I mean, you KNOW he's gonna kill the counselors, but you don't know when or where. I absolutely LOVE that feeling of uncertainty. McLoughlin has Jason lurking out of windows, behind doors, and the scariest part is when Jason is unknowingly in the motor home as the teenagers pull away from camp. There is also a lot of the usual CH CH CH HA HA HA and deep black darkness to enhance Jason's (CJ Graham's) menacing figure.

For once I didn't want any of the characters to get killed. I enjoyed all of their roles. I especially didn't want Paula (Kerry Noonan) to die, and her responsible, soft-spoken, motherly role had me rooting for her to be the lone survivor. That was a first for me...except for Chrissy in part III I never really cared much for the campers. However, my hopes were mutilated in the cabin when Paula dies probably Jason's most notorious kill to date. My God, that cabin is bloody!

Overall, I recommend this installment to any hardcore Jason fan. It is a real horror movie, this time it's for real. Rent it, buy it, do whatever! It's great! Jason Lives...he breathes...he can never die
