Tommy, the young boy who finally killed hockey-masked murderer Jason Voorhees in Part 4, has grown up and is now spending time in a home for the mentally fragile. Not long after Tommy checks in though, someone starts killing the patients one-by-one. Has Tommy picked up where the legendary serial killer left off or has Jason come back from beyond the grave to kill again?
I thought this movie was okay, but nothing great. It would have been better, if it was really Jason. Even though the ending sucked, the storyline was pretty decent. If they really wanted to make it different, they should have just made Tommy as Jason and use his psychotic episodes to drive him insane and think he was Jason. Where it would be something similar to the movie “My Bloody Valentine”. I’m guessing they didn’t want to use that approach, because it would be too obvious.
The only good thing in this part was a few good kill scenes. There was one with hedge clippers, which I thought was great, and another with the leather strap. I did like the axe scene with the overweight orphan kid, as well. Other than those, the other kill scenes were pretty much in previous parts. There were a few comedy sections, in this part, as well, but not a lot.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s worth the watch but nothing too great.
