->''On Friday the 13th, Jason is back. But this time, someone's waiting.''

The seventh ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' film.

This time around Jason Voorhees is pitted against Tina Shepard, a girl with psychic powers. She has come to Crystal Lake on her doctor's orders to work around the guilt she has about accidentally killing her father few years ago. One of her emotional psychic outbursts revitalizes Jason's body in the lake, and his killing spree continues once again.

This film marks the debut of fan-favourite Creator/KaneHodder as Jason.

* AlanSmithee: The second of the film's two credited writers, Manuel Fidello is an alias for an unidentified WGA scab who violated the then-ongoing writers' strike to work on the film after original writer Daryl Haney got fired.
