Mitch: That one sure did. Thomas: That's what happens when you're about to die and you offer Jason all your money and credit cards. Mitch: You can't buy your way out of some situations. At least Deputron tried shooting Jason. Thomas: He didn't end up any better, though. Mitch: Good thing Jason only uses edged weapons and not firearms. Thomas: You know, this one did raise a lot of interesting questions. Mitch: Like what? Thomas: Like, why didn't Jason just walk along the bottom of the lake, chains and all? Mitch: Or remove the chain? I mean, obviously he's still alive down there. Even the worms in his face were still wriggling. Thomas: Maybe he'll just wait...until the next movie. I bet that's what happens. Mitch: Let's talk about the distinct lack of nudity in this movie. Thomas: Example. Mitch: What, you want me to give you an example of nothing? Thomas: Hmm. Mitch: No naked girls. Not one. Not even a flash. The director lapsed on his nudity quota. An amateur effort, to be certain. Thomas: He's no Fred Olen Ray. But what about Nikki? Mitch: What about her? She didn't get naked. Thomas: Come to think of it, she didn't even take her shirt off while she was having sex. Mitch: It wouldn't have mattered anyway...too little, too late, know what I mean? Thomas: I'm afraid I do. Hell, this movie didn't even have a good dork. Mitch: They should have taken lessons - lots of them - all of them - from some of the previous movies. Let's see...this one was #6... I rank the overall series now: 2,4,5,1,6,3. Thomas: Not good. Not good at all. Mitch: Let's hope they get a better director for part 7.
