Director John Carl Buechler has publicly fumed many times over the years about the number of edits required by the MPAA to avoid an "X" rating. The film had to be submitted nine times to the Motion Picture Association of America before being granted an "R" rating, and it stands as arguably the most heavily censored entry in the 'Friday the 13th' series.

Jason is stuck at the bottom of Crystal Lake after the events of the last movie. Luckily for him there's a telekinetic girl (Lar Park-Lincoln) who cries a lot and has Carrie fits. She inadvertently frees Jason, thinking he's her dead father! Jason immediately starts killing people, naturally. The series was clearly trying to move in a new direction here with more of a focus on the paranormal and supernatural. Terry Kiser from Weekend at Bernie's plays a shrink in this. He's better with comedy. Lar Park-Lincoln's performance consists of crying or being on the verge of crying at all times. My sister used to love this entry in the series because of the angle with the telekinetic girl and the handsome guy who looks like he belongs at a Superman audition.
First movie in the series where Kane Hodder plays Jason. He would be the longest-running Jason, playing him for the rest of the series. Frankly, I'm not a big fan of Hodder's Jason. He's too big and bulky, like a football player or pro wrestler. Plus they put him in some kind of suit where you are supposed to be able to see his exposed spine and ribcage. It's incredibly cheesy and just makes Jason cartoonish instead of intimidating.
Most of the people Jason kills in this one aren't particularly annoying or bad. The first couple seemed quite nice, actually. The whole vibe to this sequel seems off but it's still a watchable movie. Not the best of the series but far from the worst. There would only be one more decent one after this then it was downhill.
