The best of the worst!By Nicola from Sleaford,Lincolnshire , 19 Jun 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Well he's back the man behind the mask,jason voorhees is back,and he's bigger badder and meaner than ever,and dont we know it.
Somebody actually wrote a decent script for this movie and the director Tom Mcloughlin(director of creepy horror movie mausoleum) cared enough about the direction of this to make it stand out,even though its 20yrs old its still better than any of the later sequels and some earlier ones,with lots of violence some gore and enough menace to have me hiding under the bed,this works to a T.
with some cool set pieces of action,and great lighting,the stand out piece is jason in the rv and standing on it after the crash,eerie well lit and jason serveying his domain like he owns it.
this came out in 1986 it took 2yrs before it hit the video shops i used to have them all in big rental boxes the art work has changed again,and only the theatrical trailer as xtras,what about the Alice Cooper video,yes the song at the end is sung by Alice Cooper,the makers cared enough to have a song for this film too,so wheres the video,doh
just watch and enjoy its even got tony goldwyn in it he's the bad guy in ghost.
this is a definite horror franchise high enjoy!

Forest Green.By Richie77777 (274 reviews) from Essex , 01 Oct 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideWell the actor who played the youngster, Tommy, in the mental institution from the previous installment has changed. (I wonder why?)
Tommy and his mate go to Jason's grave and open it up because they want to make sure that he is dead. (He certainly appears more than dead!)
He then rams a metal pole into Jason, (he's surely dead!) but then like a good horror film Jason is able to come back to life via lightning bolt which goes down the metal pole into his body! (Unbelievable, but you wouldn't have it any other way??!)
Tommy had also planned on setting Jason alight with oil but as he's about to light an oil soaked Jason it starts pouring with rain and puts out the match! - Talk about just in the nick of time!!
The mainstay of this entire franchise is the, 'Acting,' - terrible! (Jason apart). - For example the people playing paintball! (In fact I didn't know paintball was that old!)
Crystal Lake is now called Forest Green.
Interestingly its a bit self referential :
- 'Darren we better turn around!'
-'Because I've seen enough horror movies to know that any wierdo wearing a mask is not friendly.'
The talk aside to the camera from the graveyard chap :
'Why did they have to dig up Jason? - Some folks have a strange idea of entertainment.'
One thing that annoys me is the character Tommy still hanging around in the sixth film, (having entered the series in film four). He was great as played by Corey Feldman in the fourth film but the director should have left it there. Although that said he had a very large role in the fifth installment so maybe not.
Amusingly there's a character wearing a walkman. A fact noted in films four, five and six. - Still all the rage in 1986!
Just as in the majority of the series there's a group of youngsters spending time away at Forest Green. (One of them I believe is an actress who appeared in the Goonies). Although interestingly in a break from all that has gone before a group of children go to stay there too.
Of course there's more proleptic irony :
'If this is as exciting as it gets then we're in big trouble dude.'
'Darling you're gonna be the death of me.'
A theme that is continued in the Scream movie is the youngsters keep trying, (or think) to scare each other.
It just doesn't seem as scary as some of the early installments.
Freddy is a scarier horror movie icon from the first two Nightmares On Elm Street than Jason is throughout this franchise.
The ending is slightly different this time around because its really one against one.
I enjoyed the ending, (naturally) but most of the film wasn't that interesting! Also it was annoying having children stay at Forest Green too. I don't see the reason for needing that.
Carry on camping!By PJshadow (199 reviews) from Leeds , 25 Sep 2011One of the worst in the series so far.
I have no problem with humour in my slasher films it's what makes many of them great, but 'Jason Lives' got the tone so wrong at times I thought I was watching Naked Gun or Airplane.
It was good to have Jason back after 'A New Beginning' however this heavily comedic horror outing was badly put together.
There were one or two good deaths but often the decent gorey stuff was ruined by trying to put a humorous twist on it. The head through the side of the mobile home for instance, or the bizarre paint balling scenes could have been great but instead were ruined by writers attemting to gain a cheap laugh at the expense of horror.
Once again the action leads evenually back to Camp Crystal Lake where more stupid 'funny' deaths occur.
Finally we have the inevitable ridiculous face-off with Jason versus our hero of sorts Tommy Jarvis (back for third time with a third different face) armed only with a rock, a chain and a boat.
Hopefully things will pick up in part VII.
Last thought, why did Jason's eye look so dry in the final scene? Most things you find in the bottom of lakes are a bit damp at least.
The "Scream" of the Friday the 13th SeriesBy danieljparsons (118 reviews) from Ashford , 22 May 2010Probably the strongest of the initial eight Paramount Friday the 13th films, Jason Lives is also the most knowingly self-referential, with a good mix of camp and ironic humor (those who cite the first two as the best films probably won't like this instalment). Thom Matthews is, for me, the strongest of the three actors to portray the character of Tommy Jarvis, who first appeared in The Final Chapter, and most of the other performances are either strong or enjoyably bad. There's some genuinely tense moments here enlivened by inventive direction, and the deaths (surely the raison d'être of the franchise) are original without being too excessive.
