About The Film
As a child, Tommy Jarvis did what many others died trying to do. He killed Jason Voorhees, the mass murderer who terrorized the residents of Crystal Lake. But now, years later, Tommy is tormented by the fear that maybe Jason isn't really dead.
So Tommy and a friend go to the cemetery to dig up Jason's grave. Unfortunately for Tommy, (and very unfortunately for his friend), instead of finding a rotting corpse, they discover a well rested Jason who comes back from the dead for another bloody rampage in Friday The 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives.

While no one was declaring FRIDAY THE 13th PART V: A NEW BEGINNING to be a financial failure, its 21.9 million dollar gross was a steep drop from THE FINAL CHAPTER's 32.9 million.

While still immensely profitable, it was clear that the previous film had alienated the fan base. Another misstep may very well have meant the end of the franchise. READ MORE ->
