Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

 (1986)

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

As a child, Tommy Jarvis killed mass-murderer Jason Voorhees. Years later, he is tormented by the fear that Jason may not be dead. Determined to finish off the infamous killer once and for all, Tommy and a friend dig up Jason's corpse in order to cremate him. Unfortunately, things go seriously awry, and Jason is instead resurrected, sparking a new chain of ruthlessly brutal murders.

Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The cinematographer for Jason Lives was Jon Kranhouse, who would go on to specialize in aerial photography for such films as Star Trek IV and Broken Arrow. Like McLoughlin, Kranhouse was at the beginning of his career. As McLoughlin says at one point in his commentary, the relative youth of everyone involved was essential to their enthusiasm for the project.

The image on Warner/Paramount's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray for Jason Lives represents an uptick in quality, compared to The Final Chapter and A New Beginning. I attribute this to the source rather than any improvement in the transfer or mastering. The basic aesthetic of the series did not change with Jason Lives, but from all appearances either the quality of lighting or the film stock (or both) improved to the point that the filmed image gained some measure of polish and fineness of grain. On Blu-ray, this translates into superior detail, slightly richer color and a look that's closer to "studio" than "exploitation". Black levels and contrast levels are well set, the source material is in pristine condition, and there are no signs of untoward digital manipulation.

Jason Lives shares a BD-50 with A New Beginning, but like its roommate it has a healthy average bitrate, in this case of 22.52 Mbps. I kept watching for compression artifacts, but none presented themselves.


Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

As best as I have been able to determine, Jason Lives was the first film in the series to be released in Ultra Stereo, the generic version of Dolby Stereo. That track has been remixed as 5.1 and presented as lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it's the first soundtrack in the series to provide an enveloping surround environment. Supervising sound editor Dane Davis has since become a major figure in film audio, winning an Oscar for The Matrix and designing sound for such films as The Cabin in the Woods and the upcoming Enders Game. Davis' layered stereo mix has provided the remix team with worthy material for a 5.1 experience.

The wind, thunder and lighting accompanying Jason's resurrection register with solid impact, and the forest environments are alive with insects and rustling leaves. You can feel the movement of cars racing down the road, and the sound of kids at camp yelling (or screaming) reaches out to envelop the viewer. Especially impressive is the final battle between Tommy and Jason, a complex blend of fire, water, body blows and clanking chains, all of which has to be appropriately modulated as the edits shift the viewer's perspective.

Harry Manfredini's score plays with increased authority as it expands to fill the entire speaker array. Adding to the soundtrack's impact are three songs by Alice Cooper, including "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)", which plays over the closing credits. The entire track has wide dynamic range and the deepest bass extension of any entry in the series to date.
