Director: Adam Marcus

Starring: John D. LeMay, Kari Keegan, Kane Hodder, Steven Williams, Steven Culp, Erin Gray, Rusty Schwimmer, Richard Grant, Leslie Jordan, Billy Green Bush

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Evil has finally found a home.

Plot: Jason Voorhees, the living, breathing essence of evil, is back for one fierce, final fling. Tracked down and blown to bits by a special FBI task force, everyone now assumes that he's finally dead. But everyone assumes wrong. Jason has been reborn with the bone-chilling ability to assume the identity of anyone he touches. The terrifying truth is he could be anywhere. Or anybody. In this shocking, blood-soaked finale to Jason's carnage-ridden of terror, the horrible secret of his unstoppable killing instinct is finally revealed.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Sure.

I thought for sure this one was going to suck but it didn't. I dug it. The humor isn't Troma-silly like it had been in one of the previous films (I forget as they're all blending together in my mind) and there are some really funny moments. I really like how Jason takes over other bodies and we don't get to really see him like we know him until the end. The kills are fun, there's an awful lot of fighting and plenty of nudity (there's even something for the ladies...sort of), and the ending with a brief cameo of Freddy's hand was the icing on the cake. For someone who put off watching any of these films for 30 years after they came out, I'm having a pretty good time with this series. There's only one more left to go and then it's FREDDY vs. JASON and the remake.
