In 1984 Jason Voorhees returned in a film that was meant to kill him off forever.
Ultimately he didn’t stay dead as we know. The film itself was once more met negatively but was successful enough for another Voorhees film to appear a year later.
With another new cast, a completely different feel and a creepy assed kid, Jason came back to once more add as many bodies to his body count as he possibly could. This time out it wasn’t just teens in his way, there no longer was any real reason for his attacks but boy did he go about his business.
