This is the my favorite of all the Friday the 13th's. For one I love the style, I am a huge fan of the Universal Monster movies and the start of this seemed like one of them, which the director intended "if you turned down the colour it would look great in b&w" and boy was the intro impressive. It was a tribute to Frankenstein mostly, the atmosphere and scenery were very spooky it's everything you would want a colour Universal Monster movie to be like, though nothing will beat b&w.

It's a relief that it doesn't take itself too seriously I mean a Part VI movie how could you take that seriously? The humor is pretty good, I like how a lot of the jokes are hidden, I swear every time I watch this I notice another joke. It's also got a lot of pop culture references from the time period such as the 007 styled title screen. I also love the action movie elements such as the car chase sequence which doesn't really belong in a Friday the 13th but works so well because of those reasons.

The final battle was very entertaining and suspenseful they decided not to do the average final girl chase sequence and do a epic fight in a ring of fire with Tommy, I thought it was funny how they ended it like yeah Jason'll come back we wont try and mask that because each sequel before that had Jason dead at the end but this one just flat out tells you he'll be back, he'll always come back xD.

The soundtrack is so awesome featuring songs from Alice Cooper including an original anthem about Jason written especially for the movie. This one revived the series and quite rightly so there has not been any before or after in the series quite as good as this.

4.0 out of 5 stars the best 29 July 2009
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
friday the 13th part 6 is the best of the popular franchise,everything was in place here to make this the best of the bunch,it had some great kills,good suspense,decent laughs and a good cast who punched above their weight perhaps to make this very watchable.
This film at times feels big budget in comparison to the other,jailbreaks,mass explosions and strong and bloody special effects combine to make this something special,as a one off this film is well and good,as part of the series it is the leader,get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The strongest of the series 14 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
The hockey mask is back. And it's pretty good stuff; well, for us aficianados, anyway.

In terms of technical efficiency and cinematic wit, director Tom McLoughlin's contribution to the interminable Friday the 13th franchise is the strongest of the series and a genuinely entertaining slice of eighties horror.

Four out of five stars may sound generous for a film of such low-brow limitations, but to take the franchise on its own terms, and restricting criticism across and between films within the much derided slasher sub-genre, Part VI stands up as a solid piece of work.

Comparison with other Friday films will illustrate Part VI's superiority: it has some semblance of a story (Tommy Jarvis, adolescent victim of Jason and now a young man fresh from a mental institution, is out to kill his old foe once and for all); the killings are executed with aplomb (a triple decapitation springs to mind); and as well as a decent sized budget on show, undercutting the horror is a certain postmodern knowingness (after finding Jason's disturbed grave, the gravedigger stares straight to the camera and with drunken indignation says, 'some folks have got a strange idea of fun.'

McLoughlin, it seems, was shrewd enough to play it mostly for laughs now that the series had limped towards its sixth offering. Some of the comedy is unintentional too, of course (check out the gun that an early victim pulls on Jason - it's a little toy). But that's part of the fun, isn't it? Overall, this is a good slice of saturday night horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Friday 20 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
This is by far the best Friday the 13th. It sticks to the plot line of the fridays before. This film appears to be set about twenty years from part 4 and maybe a cuple of years after part 5.

In this one Tommy Jarvis (from the part 4 and 5) sets out to dig jason's corpse up and set fire to it. This all goes wrong however as he manages to bring jason back to life rather than destroy him.
What follows is carnage, murder and even some laugths.

What makes it even better is the great Alice Cooper soundtrack. For anyone wanting to see friday the 13 for the first time regardless if you have seen the ones before I recommend this highly.

Tommy's back again. As a child he did what many others tried to do&thats kill Jason Voorhees.But years later Tommy is convinced Jason may return so he&a friend go to the cemetery to cremate Jason&bring him down to hell.When they open the coffin they find a rotted corpes of Jason. Tommy snaps&shoves a metal rod through Jasons heart&it then gets struck by lightning&zombie Jason is born. Tommys' friend unfortunately gets a nice surprise of Jason. Tommy escapes&tries to warn the police about Jasons return, but they lock him up instead. A newly opened Camp Crystal Green( The name was changed to forget Jason) have a new bunch of teenagers as consellors looking after a bunch of kids.Jason finds his way back to wat is his home,but not without a few kills. Tommy escapes prison&is determined to put Jason were he belongs&that is hell.But how do you kill somthing thats already dead? This is the best of the Friday the 13th series.With 17 kills&the return of tommy,its a great movie to horror/slaher fans. If you love Jason,you'll love this movie, but remember Jason kills love.
