IF JASON STILL HAUNTS YOU, YOU’RE NOT ALONE!
Tommy Jarvis (John Shepard) is now a teenager, but his encounter with Jason Vorhees has turned him into a mental wreck; he checks into an open rehab facility, but then the murders start again. The fifth chapter moves a few years into the future; Jason may be dead, but everything feels like normal (unfortunately). When it comes to the identity of this new killer, few will care. The final sequence does offer a psychologically interesting twist, but Shepard is way too dull.
