Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)

Tommy Jarvis just couldn't leave well enough alone.  He had to go dig up Jason Voorhees' grave, thus inadvertently reviving him.  You can take Crystal Lake out of the camp name but you can't take Jason out of Crystal Lake (well, at least not until Part VIII).  The man behind the mask is back to slice and dice through "Camp Forest Green's" lean counseling staff.  This installment is a fan favorite and also won the hearts of some critics for it's new direction, self-referential humor and mild character development.

As I've stated before, my interest in this franchise basically ends after Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984).  Zombie Jason just didn't do it for me and Imposter Jason sure as hell didn't.  But one thing that led me to do a post on Jason Lives was location accessibility.  So many from the series are inaccessible or have been hacked to pieces like counselors but the fact that Camp Daniel Morgan lends you the key to the camp and lets you do a self-guided tour, had me leaping to my feet faster than Jason leaped out of the lake.  A very creepy feeling remained throughout my expedition as I was the only soul there at the tranquil campground.  I totally had second thoughts about venturing out onto the dock.

The Dining Cabin

This also doubled as The Girl's Cabin as only the kitchen part was seen in the film...

Very reminiscent of the pantry from Part 1...

The Boy's Cabin

The Girl's Cabin

The Dining Cabin's dining area doubled for The Girl's Cabin.  I didn't get a shot of the side entrance that is seen a few times in the movie...

Paula & Sissy's Cabin

Camp Bathroom

This was not used in the movie, but should've been.  It's very claustrophobic and creepy...

Also reminiscent of the bathroom from Part 1...

The Lake

I don't care if you got Eurythmics to record a new album, you couldn't get me into that water...
