I like Jason Voorhees as a character but movies with him are pretty weak. I enjoyed older Tommy Jarvis even he was a real freak, and to be honest I was quite confused with Jason in this movie so the conclusion was pretty good and unexpected for me. Unfortunately characters are always stupid and dialogues even more.
You can feel the sleaziness of the production, probably due to the director, but this one gets ragged on a little too much, essentially just because of the twist. Which is ridiculous, as it's a pretty solid entry into the franchise...
Some good kills in this one. I'm glad Reggie survived. It was awesome when it hit "Jason" with the tractor. First movie not near Crystal Lake no wonder it's not really Jason.
While the quality of this movie admittedly isn't great, and I can appreciate why it gets a lot of flack, it's a huge guilty pleasure of mine. It's probably the first movie on the series I think I saw when I was a kid. It's worth watching for the comical Ethel Hubbard alone :D
Everyone hates this part because Jason is technically not in it. But it is actually one of my favourites. Who cares if someone else is wearing the mask? There are some great kills, some nudity, some funny moments. A great slasher overall.
