JASON LIVES: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI (1986)

A grown up Tommy goes to the cemetery to destroy Jason's corpse once and for all.  The gods aren't too thrilled about that, so when Tommy rams a spear through Jason's chest lightning crashes down and brings Jason back to life (Frankenstein-style, there's even a Karloff reference later in the film) and ready to kick ass.  Tommy runs to the police, but when he tells them about Jason they think he's just a maniac trying to stir up trouble and throw him in jail.  Soon the bodies start piling up.

If I could only watch one Friday the 13th film for the rest of my life it would be Part 6.  The pace is lightning fast, the kills are amazing, the photography is way better then it should be for a cheap horror movie, the humor is actually humorous and not forced, the acting is really good and the main chick is the hottest female of the entire series.  Honestly, I can't think of anything negative to say about the movie.  I mean it's not Bergman or anything, but it's not suppose to be.  It's a light-hearted, blood-drenched slasher film that's fun to watch and that's it.  Highly recommended.

Oh shit.  Jason's gettin' him a handful of Tommy's ass.
