Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986) - Tom McLoughli

So for Friday the 13th, I have been advised, I need to watch a Friday the 13th movie. So I thought about it and agreed. I decided to celebrate this F13th movie by watching my personal favorite. That's right Friday the 13th: Jason Lives (Part VI). It is hard for me to really put to the review what my favorite things are in the movie. Or what makes this movie scary. I really just want to list everything that I think is awesome about this film. So for Friday the 13th, I submit to you my tiny review while i watch the film:

SPOILERS!!! does it matter really?
  • Parody Comedy of itself
  • The guy from Welcome Back Kotter
  • Frankenstein
  • The satire 
  • The 2nd Best of the series and actually kind of being its own type of movie. 
  • James Bond intro 
  • "Your gonna be sorry if you dont shaddup!"
  • Highest body count until Jason X
  • Should of been in 3D
  • Its kinda like Saved by the Bell on Friday the 13th. 
  • The sheriff is a great Mr. Belding
  • The entire story! 
  • I think this is the first time Jason is supposed to be a Zombie
  • Tommy Jarvis being a bad ass Zach Morris
  • Did i mention the comedy!
  • Holy crap there is Screech, AC Slater, Kelly, Lisa
  • Oh there are children in the camp this time, its like the only one to do that since the first movie.
  • Alice Cooper did the soundtrack! 
  • Fucking creative!
  • Pure Awesomeness...
Anyway that's all I am going to give you... its was a little much huhh... Well anyway I just tried it out. SO I think that the majority of the flaws in this movie are overshadowed by the parody factor. Interesting note, this is the only Jason movie to not have nudity. Although it does have a sex scene which is pretty hilarious.

This movie comes highly recommended to anyone looking for a great movie for Halloween parties or anything like that. I don't know why it isn't any more popular. For its type of film it is actually a really good movie. It is pure entertainment. So sit back relax and enjoy Friday the 13th: Jason Lives.

Did ya Know: Director Tom McLoughlin took home some props from the film, including Jason's tombstone - which sits outside his house, made to look like Jason is buried in his yard - and his casket, which sits in his garage. The DVD box set includes a scene in which he shows off these props at his home, and tells of how a city employee refused to enter his yard to read the meter because he thought a body was really buried there.

This is one of the few Friday the 13th sequels that I actually like. It was the closest film to matching the look and feel of the original. Thanks for posting that video with the uncut deaths... never saw that before.

I have never been able to really decide which was my favorite Friday the 13th film before.

Truth be told I love them all. The 7th has the best effects (even if most of them were cut out) but I must admit, part 6 is one that has MAJOR rewatch value. Besides those, I really like part 5 myself. Call me crazy!
