Synopsis and Purpose of Edit:
Terror is reborn!
Jason Voorhees is dead - killed at the hands of 12 year old Tommy Jarvis. Now, 6 years later an institutionalized Tommy is plagued by nightmarish images of the psychopath he killed. He is taken to a Pinehurst Halfway House in an attempt to reintroduce him into society. However, when a spate of murders starts up around Pinehurst, it looks very much like the work of Jason. But Jason is dead... isn't he?
Jason's Legacy is an attempt to streamline a movie which suffers from characters who are introduced solely to be killed off straight away. The idea is to refocus the killings on the inmates of Pinehurst as much as possible. Heavy colour correction also attempts to paint the film in the same way light as Joseph Zito's excellent preceding chapter, The Final Chapter. Happy Friday the 13th!
Sorry, not time for a detailed cut list on this one, but suffice to say I've tried to trim as much bad dialogue as possible, in addition to keeping the kills edited down to the characters who have some relation to the story, rather than ones purely introduced just so they can get killed.
None at this time. If I release this as a DVD file, I may add a commentary.
