Friday the 13th: Part 6
Jason Lives (1986)
(Graham) comes back as a zombie and heads back home to Crystal Lake,
killing dumb characters on the way. When he finally gets there, he
realizes that they changed the name of the grounds to Forest Green and
that a group of kids have taken residency on his turf. A peeved Jason
dusts off the machete and cleans house, Voorhees style.
the red dot goes…ya bang! – Deputy Rick
the 13th: Part 6 is one of the better Friday sequels on the block with a
really good script, better actors than the norm, solid “atmospheric”
directing and one hell of a winning sense of humor on its side. The
film’s circumstantial yuk-yuks, sight gags (loved the James Bond
opening), horror nods and witty dialogue jacked up the “fun” level of
this entry to “F*CKING FUN”, making the formula feel “fresh” in
was also pleasantly surprised to see that the "slasher stock
characters" were nowhere to be seen in this tent. No jock, no
virginal heroine and not token slut (there is a tramp but she’s not one
of the main teens). Instead, we get a likeable hero (Thom Mathews rules!),
a tough-as-nails Sheriff and a sexy, smart final girl who digs sex as much
as everybody else. FINALLY! Furthermore, the victims tried to do the right
thing in this one; run away! Sure it didn’t make much of a difference,
Jason got to them with his own brand of brutal charm anyways but I mucho
appreciated the effort. Add to that Jason now being a Zombie which spiced
up the game, some gnarly and ambitious set pieces (all about that RV
scene), a couple of inspired kills (the body bending bit…ouch!) and some
hard pumping Alice Cooper songs and you get a hands down crowd pleaser.
movie did stumble a few times though. 1) What kind of rich brats have an
intimate soiree, late at night in the middle of the woods, with champagne
and all in an area known for its death count? Rent a room, jerks!!! 2) The
gore factor was low compared to previous entries (damn MPAA) 3) Jason is
no longer scary and no matter how sympathetic the leads were I was rooting
for him. But I let those minor boo-boos go where I was totally swayed by
the film’s “come have a blast with us” demeanor. Jason goes legit!
Who knew I’d love it! I’m
A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN!
Mathews (Tommy) was the man! He’s the Paul Newman of horror flicks! He
gave a strong and engaging performance. Where is he now? Jennifer Cooke
(Megan) was one sexy chick and also a strong thespian. She looked great in
tight jeans and her chemistry with Mathews was on. David Kagen (Garris)
was amazing as the tough cop. He had all the best lines and I adored his
bad ass with a heart shtick. Tom Fridley (Cort) very funny "Indian
Ritual" monologue made him a champ in my book! CJ Graham (Jason)
started what Kane Hodder perfected. Jason had more personality in this
one, reacted to things and came across as KILLER TANK on two legs! GOOD SHOW MAN!
the flick held back where many of the kills were mostly suggested as
opposed to being graphic. We still get; a ripped out heart, impaling,
ripped off arm, triple decapitation, broken bottle in the throat, double
impalement, crushed face, knife in the head, ripped off head, dart in the
head, crushed head, a dude broken in half (AWESOME), a split open throat
side slut named Nicky (that name again) didn’t show squat…I mean
squat!!! A let down. What kind of slut are you? I did dig on the Jennifer
Cooke crotch shots though; nice Jeans! The ladies get Thom Mathews’
(who also scribed this fine flick) injected the picture with mucho Gothic
atmosphere, lots of slick
shots, some effective slow motion and a tighter than tight pace. Grade A!
get the Ki Ki Ki score and some rocking Alice Cooper tunes…GOOD STUFF!
A PARAMOUNT STUDIO RELEASE:
Release date: September 25, 2001
A collage of images (a hockey mask, a graveyard and a person
screaming) serve as backdrop to the menu. Ho hum.
IMAGE: I appreciate seeing the film in
anamorphic 1.85:1 ratio but why is the print so grainy? Did
Paramount keep the Friday The 13th reels in a dumpster or something?
Like the Part 5 DVD, the image looks like a used videotape
that's been rented too many times at your local videostore.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Sound this DVD
showcases is adequate and supports that "Ki Ki Ki"
perfectly. Too bad the image doesn't measure up.
We get the "theatrical teaser"...that's it! And yes, it's also very grainy. Why aren't I surprised? Can we stop
the Friday The 13th DVD bum jobs? Us fans deserve more than a slick
that Friday the 13Th Part 6 was created with love and effort
from all involved. Not only does did the flick continue the Jason saga
with confidence and class; it also had no problem standing on its own two
undead feet. Granted, it wasn’t the blood-fest that were the earlier
entries and the fear factor was on the low jive but the top notch
production values, the loveable cast, the superior script and the “party” aura of it all made up
for that. This is the Friday The 13th flick I show to people who don’t like Friday The 13th.
It’s more than just a good slasher flick…it’s also a kick ass movie!
scenes were cut by the MPAA to avoid an "X" rating:
Allen's insides were ripped out of
his body by Jason. He dragged the guts and heart out; he dropped
them on the ground where his heart laid steaming.
The triple decapitation of the 3
paintball players. The first print showed their heads being sliced
right off of their shoulders.
The two camp counselors in the
car's deaths were also trimmed: The woman speared in the water was
cut of excess blood. The man was speared, lifted into the air, and
then slid down the spear, leaving his insides on it.
Jason shoved the broken bottle
into the caretaker's neck and he falls to the ground as the camera
gets a close up of the blood coming out of the bottle.
Cort's death had a little more to
it in the first print. After Cort is stabbed in the side of the
head, blood begins to shoot out his head.
The wall-to-wall blood cabin
originally had a lot more blood and guts in it. There were shots of
livers and hearts running down the walls, but it was all thought too
graphic to have in the film.
The backbreaking sheriff's scene
had more to it. There were more screams, more bone crushing, and his
legs began to kick.
A scene at the very end was cut.
In it, a red-haired Elias Voorhees walked to his son's grave.
Knowing he wasn't in the casket, Elias gives the camera a wicked
Sissy's death was toned
down. Originally, you could see her head torn off and
