Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (Film)

----Haunted Six----

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (Film)

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is a 1986 slasher film, the sixth film in the Friday the 13th series. The film was written and directed by Tom McLoughlin.


Jason Voorhees is dead and buried. However, Tommy Jarvis, who successfully killed the murderous Jason as a young boy, is haunted by the memories of Jason and sets out to exorcise his demons once and for all by digging up and finally destroying Jason's body with the help of a fellow mental institution patient. In a fit of rage, Tommy stabs Jason's corpse with a piece of the cemetery's iron fence. Instead of being sent to Hell, Jason is revived via a jolt of electricity when a lightning bolt strikes the metal post. Tommy's companion is murdered by Jason as Tommy flees the cemetery in his pickup truck. Now more unstoppable than ever (this is the first film where Jason is a zombie), Jason moves on a killing spree through the town of Crystal Lake, now renamed Forest Green in an effort to distance itself from the events that earned its campsite the nickname "Camp Blood."

Tommy desperately tries to warn the authorities about Jason, but they are reluctant due to the nature of Tommy's claims and his troubled past. The only person willing to listen to him is the sheriff's daughter, Megan. With her father ready to pin several recent murders on him, she helps Tommy as he devises a plan he believes will finally stop Jason once for all. As Jason preys on the counselors of the recently re-opened camp, Tommy lures him out into Crystal Lake, the place where Jason originally drowned. At the risk of his own life, he ties a pair of chains to a large rock and wraps the other end to Jason's neck, and sends the rock to the bottom of the lake. When Megan swims to rescue Tommy, Jason grabs her by the leg trying to pull her down. She starts the motor to the boat and the propeller shreds Jason's face and breaks his neck in the process. Once safely on land, Tommy observes the waters where he left Jason and believes that Jason is finally "home." Then the next shot is Jason's body at the bottom of the lake. His right hand clenches into a fist and his good eye opens.
