Last time I blamed Tommy for causing the deaths of others after inadvertently raising Jason from 6 feet under. I must do the same here concerning Tina, the very cute Lincoln as a girl with powers to move things with her mind. Thinking shes moving her dead father from the same lake where Jason is stuck under water, she ends up snapping the chain attached to the rock holding Jason down and hes back in business. So like Tommy, shes kinda responsible for the batch of teens who get skewered. But missing from part 6 and really the rest of the other films, are the inventive murders. Jasons slams a girl into a tree, stabs a few, throws one outta window, its just a little too dull. Theres a couple decent ones like the party favor in the eye or the ol' axe to the face, but the rest are standard. And way too much time is spent on Lincolns character trying to get over her past at the lake and her would be romance with Blair. Most of Harry Mandredinis great music is stuff from previous films as either he and/or Fred Mollin unfortuntely decided to overuse a lot of "banging" sounds. And after being the lead character the last 3 films, Tommy Jarvis was dropped. Tack on a totally unsatisfying ending (Jasons pulled under a dock and disappears) and you've got only a fair follow up. At least its more watchable than 8 or 9.
