This film starts pretty much where other Friday the 13th movies end: Hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder) is lured into a trap and killed - but not just killed, he's riddled with bullets by a special squad, then he's blown up by a rocket launcher, being blown into so many pieces it's impossible he has survived - but of course, he somehow did, as in the morgue, his heart's still beating, and it hypnotizes the coroner (Richard Gant) into eating it up. Upont that, the coroner promptly turns into evil killing machine, killing his way out of the morgue, and heading - where else? - to Crystal Lake. Once there, he kills the obligatory campers (Michelle Clunie, Michael B. Silver, Kathryn Atwood), gets into a fight with deputy Josh (Andrew Bloch), whose body he eventually takes over, leaving the coroner's to disintegrate. Then he goes for the home of Diana Kimble (Erin Gray) and kills her but is chased away by Steven (John D. LeMay), ex of her daughter Jessica (Kari Keegan) before he can take over her body. But when Steven's found all bloodied up over her body he's arrested for her murder. In jail though, he meets bounty hunter Creighton Duke (Steven Williams), the only one who knows the truth about Jason, that he can only be reborn through a Voorhees, and only be killed by a Voorhees, and Diana was a Voorhees, as are Jessica and her newborn (Brooke Scher).

Brooke arrives in torn with her new boyfriend, true crime show host Robert Campbell (Steven Culp), and while Campbell is following his own agenda, he gets attacked by possessed Josh/Jason, who then takes over his body. Steven escapes from jail and only just manages to save Jessica from an attack by possessed Campbell, but she thinks he has only tried to kill her new boyfriend and takes flight to the local police station. Campbell follows her and kills pretty much everyone at the station, but Jessica is able to escape. Creighton Duke kidnaps Jessica's baby and lures her and Steven to the Voorhees house so Jessica can kill Jason with a special dagger before he's reborn. Thing is, when Jason arrives - now possessing deputy Randy (Kipp Marcus) - Duke puts himself out of commission, and Jason finds the dead body of Diana - earlier hidden there by Campbell - and is reborn through her, but somehow Jessica manages to ram a special magic (!) dagger through his heart and Jason pretty much disintegrates, with his hockey mask then being dragged to hell by Freddy Krueger's razor-bladed glove.


Now by 1993, the slasher genre had run a tad stale, and the Friday the 13th series had more or less run its course, as after 8 movies what new can you tell within the series' very narrow formula? So the producers of this one added heaps upon heaps of fantasy elements to the story, created a new mythology, and did all of this with a certain amount of irony. The result of course was frowned upon by Friday the 13th- and slasher-purists (and thus no new Friday the 13th-movie was made for another 8 years and Jason X), and in all honesty, this isn't a great movie in the purest (or any other) sense of the word ... but it somehow works, with the body-swapping Jason and the magic dagger and the whole "only a Voorhees can kill Jason" giving the film a bit more coherency than your standard slasher plot. Sure, the whole thing's silly, but the movie seems to be winking at you pretty much throughout, as if the filmmakers were aware of the whole thing's ridiculousness and just went and had fun with it. And frankly, for its courage to be different and try something new, this is one of the most entertaining films of the series.
