Now this is more like it! Still imprisoned in chains at the bottom of Crystal Lake (note that the name has changed back from Forest Green), things in the area have been quiet for some time, with Jason in his watery grave.
But the eerie silence is about to be shattered with the arrival of young Tina Sheppard (Lar Park Lincoln), who's staying at one of the lakeside holiday homes (presumably the same ones from part 4), who posseses telekinetic powers and can see into the future. She has travelled back to Crystal Lake with her therapist doctor Crews (Terry Kiser), to visit the place where her father drowned years earlier.
Doctor Crews however, has his own secret agenda. He isn't really interested in helping her get over the loss of her father, but to exploit her telekinetic abilities. This turns out to be a bad idea, as Tina try's to raise her fathers body, but instead accidentally resurrects Jason from the watery depths.
And so the seen is set for yet another Bloodbath as Jason goes around hacking up passers by, along with the holidaying teenagers who are staying at the house opposite. After finishing off the other youths, he eventually comes after Tina, but hasn't reckoned on her special powers and the ultimate battle of brain versus brawn ensues.
Often referred to as "Carrie Vs Jason", this is a good gory horror with some fantastic special effects. Whilst the casual viewer may find the film a bit on the silly side, it's also great fun and certainly the best of all subsequent the later sequels.
