Jason lives, but 18 other people die in this sixth entry in Friday the 13th series. Body count works out to an average of one corpse every 4.83 minutes.

Vivid and vigorous opening sequence has two dopey kids digging up the grave of the Masked One on a dark and stormy night to make sure he’s dead. A bolt of lightning brings the insatiable killer back to life. Believing old Jason croaked for good in Part V, the powers-that-be in Crystal Lake refuse to believe Tommy (Thom Mathews) when he insists a new rampage has begun.

But the sheriff’s pert teenage daughter (Jennifer Cooke) thinks Tommy’s cute, so she gets him out of jail and they head back to the summer camp where it all began to try to head off Jason before he starts playing with all the little kids there.

Writer-director Tom McLoughlin, who made the scare entry One Dark Night, puts comic spin on some of the predictable material and turns in a reasonably slick performance under the circumstances.
