Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Lying dormant at the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason Voorhees is released from his watery grave by a telekinetic girl. And so the killing begins again. Can she use her powers to stop Jason, or is he back for good? Written by

This film was originally intended to bring Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger together onscreen for the first time. But when Paramount Pictures (at that time was holding the rights to the "Friday the 13th" film series) and New Line Cinema (who holds the rights to the "Nightmare On Elm Street" series) couldn't agree behind the scenes, the script was rewritten to pit Jason up against the telekinetic Tina Shepard instead.

There's a black cloth visible, stuck in the left eye hole of the mask, after Jason kills Melissa. In fact, throughout the movie it is obvious that there is some sort of black cloth or screen inside the eye holes of the hockey mask, preventing one from seeing Jason's eyes under the mask, even when his mask is well-lit and his eyes should be visible.

There's a legend around here. A killer buried, but NOT dead. A curse on Crystal Lake, a death curse. Jason Voorhees' curse. They say he died as a boy, but he keeps coming back. Few have seen him and lived. Some have even tried to stop him. NO ONE can.

Part VII begins with a useful recap of the previous films, with a narrator telling us how these are Jason's woods, and that no one can stop him. Film then begins with a young girl named Tina with telekinetic powers accidentally killing her father on Camp Crystal Lake, and then how, years later, she returns there with her mother and psychiatrist to sort out her problems, only Tina, hoping to bring back her father, instead revives Jason Voorhees, still chained in the lake, though now free to resume his killing ways with another group of unfortunate teenagers. Only Tina, using her telekinetic powers, has a chance to stop him...
Aside from the novelty of Jason having an equally powerful opponent to contend with, this tepid, contrived sequel has little else going for it, though Kane Hodder is very good as Jason, and film a step up from earlier sequels(which isn't saying much!)
