* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Was Jason intending to kill Darren and Lizabeth, or was he giving them a chance to leave. Maybe he was just standing there to scare intruders, before eventually having to kill the two when they didn't heed his silent warning.
** Some have theorized that the reason Jason was [[CruelAndUnusualDeath particularly brutal]] to Paula was because she bore a pretty good resemblance towards Alice, the woman who killed his mother.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdo0oU2SIhQ He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)]]" by Music/AliceCooper makes the ending scene so much cooler.
** Also, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Qg9CegLufc Hard Rock Summer]]" from the same man.
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: Jason, despite his threatening visage, refuses to harm any children from now on. Sure, he was scaring that little girl, but it must have been unintentional on his part. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Maybe he was looking into a more innocent time before everything went straight to hell...]]
* NightmareFuel: Ironically, although this installment is a black comedy, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCRALDHxlGQ the trailer]] is very spooky.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Jason's return, Thom Mathews' performance, the self-referential humor and a more coherent plot combined to make this one a major fan favorite. Even professional critics gave it good marks - a rarity for this franchise.
* WinBackTheCrowd: Jason was explicitly brought back to make up for the fifth movie, which had received overwhelmingly negative fan reaction.
