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.

When Tina finds the bodies in the woods when she looks at Sandra's body you can see her hair is completely dry when as cold as it was outside with people having jackets and their breaths being seen. So her hair should still be at least somewhat wet despite it being a few hours since Jason drowned her with it being as cold out as it was so there was no way it could have been as dry as it was.

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.
