Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives is an American horror film written and directed by Tom McLoughlin. It is the sixth film in the ongoing Friday the 13th franchise and the fourth film to feature Jason Voorhees as the central antagonist (aside from flashback scenes and dream sequences, Jason was absent from parts 1 and 5). This film takes the franchise in a new direction, introducing elements of the supernatural into the mythos while reviving America's favorite serial killer and reuniting him with his beloved hockey mask for another blood-drenched killing spree. After having been shut down for many years, Camp Crystal Lake is open for business once again. Now known as Camp Forrest Green, a fresh group of camp counselors are charged with watching over a group of young children. Tommy Jarvis, in an effort to destroy Jasons' remains, accidentally revives him and must now take responsibility for what he has done. He tries to warn the local police that Jason Voorhees is back from the dead, but when a fresh crop of dead bodies begin turning up, Sheriff Michael Garris suspects that Tommy is the true murderer.
