Rish Outfield's reviews
Which one was this again? Was this the one where Jason doesn't actually appear? Hmm. I enjoyed this one because it played with the whole 'World After Camp Crystal Lake' idea. A cool whodunit. And there was a TON of nudity!
Best Scare: I don't remember, sorry.
I'd Recommend It To: Slasher buffs with high tolerance for dumbness and liberal nudity.

The tyranist's thoughts
Just to confuse us they introduced a third killer. It isn't Pamela Voorhees. It isn't Jason Voorhees. It is someone totally unrelated. But he looks and kills like Jason. This one seems to lack some fundamental quality that exists in the better installments. Maybe it is the fact that Crystal Lake is only nearby and no one is camping. There is very little suspense and they did a horrible job trying to scare me. I did like the haunted Tommy though.
