Trivia

The film contains numerous references to other horror films and/or people connected with them. Megan mentions Cunningham Road, a reference to Sean S. Cunningham, director of Friday the 13th (1980) and creator of the series, while Tommy mentions a grocery store called Karloff's, an homage to famous horror actor, Boris Karloff. As well as this, Sheriff Garris mentions a town called Carpenter, a reference to filmmaker John Carpenter, director of Halloween (1978), while the name Sissy is perhaps a reference to Sissy Spacek, who starred in Brian De Palma's Carrie (1976), which is based on a novel by Stephen King. Also, Sissy wears a jacket with the name "Baker" on the back, possibly a reference to Angela Baker from Sleepaway Camp (1983). See more »

Jason Voorhees vs. Tommy Jarvis: the final round
4 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

This part is one of my personal favorites. It has less suspense, that is true, but offers a lot of other things to enjoy. First of all, Jason Voorhees is back – and he's on the road of revenge again. It is interesting that "Jason Lives" strictly follows the classic plot structure (which was introduced in the very first part of "Friday the 13th"), but at the same time film manages to incorporate new elements into the basic story. This is possible mainly because of returning of Tommy Jarvis, who is now actually steals the show sometimes. The subplot of Tommy and Jason's clash is the basic story driver here, and it's working pretty good to keep your attention. Secondly, most of death scenes are remarkable for one reason or another: Jason is on the killing spree, and there will be no mercy for anyone who tries to stop him. Thirdly, this part has a very catchy soundtrack, including not only Harry Manfredini's famous tunes, but also some portions of good old 1980's hard rock (most notable song is, of course, Alice Cooper's "He's Back" which plays during the end titles). So, I could say, this is a perfect example of a slasher flick from golden age of such films. Take your popcorn, open your Pepsi and have fun. Camp Crystal Lake is open again.
