Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Trivia: In the original script, there was a scene where Jason's father visits the empty grave. It was shot, but removed from the final version of the movie.

Trivia: Director Tom McLoughlin revealed in a 2017 interview that he was approached at one point to write and direct the seventh installment of the series after "Jason Lives" proved popular. Knowing the studio wanted to make "Freddy VS Jason" at that point but couldn't due to legal rights, McLoughlin pitched another crossover idea - "Cheech and Chong Meet Jason", a farcical comedy starring the stoner comedy-duo in the vein of the old Universal "Abbot and Costello Meet..." films. The producer thought the film would do well with comedy audiences and was entertained by the idea, but ultimately decided it would alienate horror fans too much and it never moved forward.

Trivia: There's a strong resemblance to the opening of the James Bond films after Jason puts on the mask and picks up the spear. He walks from right to left, stops mid screen and turns to face the camera, and blood fills up the screen.

Revealing mistake: When the counselors show up at camp with groceries, Paula and Cort walk away with bags to take inside. However if you watch the reflection in the side of the truck closely you can see them sit down and wait for the scene to end. (00:17:55)

Question: Why did Jason go into the children's cabin the first and second times? And why did he just draw close to Nancy when she saw him?

Chosen answer: The first and second visits are unexplained. However he drew close to Nancy to install fear in her.

Answer: Yes, I don't believe he was trying to scare her; I think he was just looking at her out of genuine curiosity.

Answer: In all his attacks he's never killed children, it's like he's never seen them before. Plus, it's almost he trying to recall memories of what he's looking at. "Where have I seen these little people before."

The children might possibly remind Jason of his own days at the camp when he was a child, before he drowned.
