Trivia

After turning down Marta Kober (who appeared in Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)) and Kerry Noonan (who played in Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986)), John Carl Buechler originally wanted Paula Irvine to play the role of Tina Shepherd, because she was 19 years old at the time and had the perfect teenage look and the personality he was looking for. Unfortunately, Paula already made commitments to star as Liz in Phantasm II (1988) so John was unable to cast her for the role. John was running out of time and was not able to find a real teenager between 18-19 years old to play the role of Tina Shepherd, he had no choice to cast Lar Park-Lincoln who was 26-years-old at the time. Lar Park Lincoln had to wear a lot of makeup to look approximately eight years younger than she looks, so the audience will think she's a teenager. See more »

Okay, this is where things began to get weird.
14 January 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Another Jason movie, ah yes,takes place years after Tommy Jarvis, and it seems like he's gone, guess again, a girl with telekinetic powers tries to get her dad back, but because she wasn't aware of her power, and didn't know how to control it properly, she accidentally brings Jason back, and oh no he's at it again. Well there's something you don't get everyday, man. Why did they put someone like that in? Someone who is like Carrie, please, Jason does typical murders, while she figures out how to control her powers, and tries to find out who is this Jsaon person. And the way she fights him is kind of pathetic, she just throws stuff at him and rips off his mask, can't she do something better, like smash him or send him flying to space? But then again that would be too weird, and it wasn't that exciting either. But I'll stop there. It did have everything else you'd expect in a slasher film, but I wish they could have done something else instead of a telekinetic person. Watch it if you're into it, or if you would still watch it even though it's like that.
