Movie Summary

Tom McLoughlin , Don Behrns
Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives, the sixth installment in the popular Friday the 13th series, is a 1986 horror movie written and directed by Tom McLoughlin. After dispatching hockey-masked serial killer Jason Vorhees (C.J. Graham) in the last film, Tommy Jarvis (Thom Mathews) is placed in a mental institution. After many years have passed, Tommy escapes from the asylum and heads to Jason's grave. He wants to cremate Jason's body to make sure that the killer can never rise again, but Tommy's plan goes awry when he stabs the corpse in a fit of rage. Just as he plunges a metal post into the body, lightning strikes Jason and magically reanimates him. Tommy narrowly avoids being murdered by Jason, who then returns to his old killing ground at Camp Crystal Lake. Once again, Tommy must struggle to stop Jason's ruthless murdering spree. He must also attempt to stay out of the clutches of the police, who think that Tommy is the real serial killer.moreless

    The murderous Jason is back in the latest chapter of the most offensive series in film history, unless Burt Reynolds makes three more ``Smokey and the Bandit`` pictures real quick.
