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 »

Back in 1988, when the attempts to do a Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees title fight just weren't paying off, Jason ended up doing battle with a different foe - an unstable teenage girl with psychic visions and telekinetic abilities, and as many fans have pointed out, this may just as well have been sub titled "Jason vs. Carrie". This high concept pays off pretty well in a very amusing finale wherein Jason, like never before, is subjected to extended physical punishment. But before we get there, we get mostly the same tried and true formula, as a typical assortment of none too bright young adults meet their maker by coming to the woods intending to party. What helps in this case is the reasonably compelling story of the very troubled Tina (the sexy Lar Park Lincoln, displaying a convincing amount of vulnerability), at war with her own inner demons and with her despicable psychiatrist, Dr. Crews, who's far more interested in her abilities than with her. This would actually be a pretty good story with or without Jason's involvement. But our favourite hockey masked psychopath still adds a great bit of sadistic flair to the proceedings. The kills unfortunately are not everything they could be with the inventive and barbaric murders devised by effects expert / director John Carl Buechler whittled down to practically nothing in order to satisfy the MPAA. As a result, this respectably entertaining entry in the series isn't altogether satisfying, although it definitely has its moments. Lots of people, including this reviewer, do love that sleeping bag kill. Making his debut as Jason after working with Buechler on "prison", Kane Hodder invests Jason with genuine physical menace and a sense of incredible rage. This is a guy aching to do some serious damage. Jason has a great look this time around, face and body alike, with Buechler doing an admirable job of creating a sort of "damage continuity". It leads up to an engaging finale where Tina throws everything at Jason that she can. The first entry not entirely scored by Harry Manfredini, it uses some of his earlier compositions as well as new ones from Fred Mollin, the composer for the F13 TV series. Some of the supporting performances are good, with Susan Jennifer Sullivan a perfect bitch as the snooty Melissa who has her eyes on Nick, played by the likable Kevin Spirtas, who understandably prefers the much nicer Tina. Kiser, best known as Bernie in the "Weekend at Bernie's" films, is superb as the psychiatrist who's just as much a villain as Jason himself. It's appreciable, also, how "Crazy Ralph" is brought back, in a way, as Ralph portrayer Walt Gorney is the man doing the opening narration. Overall, pretty enjoyable stuff. Seven out of 10.
