Trivia

During filming, the dressing room for Kane Hodder was a quarter of a mile down a dirt road. One night filming ended at at 2 a.m. and he was still in the Jason costume, and he decided to walk through the woods on a path to his dressing room. As he was walking someone approached him and asked if he was with the movie. He didn't reply, because he thought it was a pretty stupid question to ask, as he was standing there in full Jason costume. The man asked again, Kane took a little lunge for the guy and grunted. The guy took off, tripping and running. The next day director John Carl Buechler told Kane that the local sheriff was supposed to stop by, but he never showed. See more »

Goofs

It's unlikely that Robin falling from the window would have instantly killed her although she might have been seriously injured. Her fall was only from the second floor, the ground wasn't concrete, she didn't land head first, and she landed on her knees and stomach. See more »

Jason meets his match... again.
19 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Jason has met his match before, going down two-nil to Tommy Jarvis. However, this one is different! Her name is Carrie, but for some reason she uses the name Tina Shepard.

Camp Crystal Lake has been operating peacefully for years, ever since Tommy Jarvis chained Jason to the bottom of the lake. But, you see, in horror movies, any peace is bound to be interrupted eventually. Enter Tina Shephard. Years ago the Shephard family was on vacation at Crystal Lake, when Tina's father drowned under some bizarre circumstances. At the age of 17, Tina and her mother return to Crystal Lake with Tina's psychiatrist, Dr. Crews. Dr. Crews isn't what he seems, he is obviously more interested in exploiting Tina's psychic abilities rather than helping her. This isn't very important, because it isn't very long before Tina accidentally releases Jason from what should have been his watery-grave...

Yeah, this is your average slasher movie. All the characters are obvious stereotypes. Except for the sci-fi nerd sporting a mullet. I can honestly say I've never seen that before. Tina Shephard is basically a re-work of Carrie from... 'Carrie', but she is the films saving grace. Jason against a psychic made for a nice showdown. Other than that, I'm still wondering why people keeping going to Crystal Lake, only to be surprised when maniac wearing a hockey mask tries to kill them.

Apparently this was heavily censored. Kane Hodder makes a good Jason, and there are kills aplenty, but not much gore. Oh well, it had a nice musical score if that makes up for anything...

Not too bad entry in the series - 5/10
