After a prolog with scenes from earlier Fridays, routine screenplay introduces Tina (Lar Park Lincoln), a pretty young blonde who is under psychiatric care because flashbacks of her father’s death won’t go away. Her troubled mind’s eye also sees tragedies before or just after they happen, and she can move objects without touching them.
On the advice of her less-than-dedicated shrink (Terry Kiser), Tina and her mother (Susan Blu), head up to Crystal Lake for a little on-site therapy. When a guilt-ridden Tina wishes her father back, she accidentally releases Jason from his watery grave. The rest is formula in both content and execution.
The still indestructible Jason (played by stunt coordinator Kane Hodder) has deteriorated so much that parts of his skeleton protrude from flesh and rags. He meets his match with the girl who cooks up her own storm with a willful stare. Although their duel offers original effects-laden thrills and stunts, it’s too little and too late.
