My favorite Friday movie
I love the Friday the 13th series, and after watching them all countless times over the years I have to say that Part 6 is my all time favorite, plain and simple, it is just awesome. Tom McLoughlin (he did another favorite of mine, One Dark Night) does an excellent job directing and really piles on the atmosphere (the opening shot of the misty forest is creepy) and Thom Mathews is the best actor to play Tommy because he is very heroic, attempting to save the lives of those around him and trying to kill Jason once and for all. Jennifer Cooke is appealing as the blonde (aren't they always blonde?) lead girl and CJ Graham's Jason is, plain and simple, awesome. Full of thrills, action, humor, gore murders, and Jason, what more could you ask for? This one is the best, no doubt about it.

Trivia

(at around 32 mins) During the close-up shots of the children sleeping in the cabin one of them has a copy of French existentialist author Jean-Paul Sartre's novel No Exit. This is most likely intended as a joke. The book's plot is about three deceased souls who are brought to Hell and lie about their reasons for being brought there. After being stuck there and failing to find a way out, one of the characters comes to the conclusion that "Hell is other people."


Quotes

Stan: This is a man's game. It requires a man's cunning, a man's intelligence...
Katie: ...with a woman's touch.


Goofs

(at around 31 mins) Jason's machete disappears from his hand as he walks after Steven through the woods.


Crazy Credits

During the end credits, actor Corey Feldman's name is misspelled "Cory".


Alternate Versions

In the original script, the deaths of both Jill and Officer Pappas were more graphic. Instead of Jason pushing Nikki's face into the wall, as we see in the wide release, Jason squeezed her throat until blood spurted out. In Officer Pappas' death, Jason originally tore off his face (literally), leaving a faceless corpse staring ahead before falling down. However, veteran Friday The 13th producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. advised director Tom McLoughlin to tone down these scenes for the film, stating that the MPAA would never give the film an "R" rating with these scenes intact.
