Jason definitely sacrifised kittens to... not the devil but the Great Old Ones.

Actually, Tavington saves the movie. No matter how OTT evil he is, after a certain point you feel it's the director forcing it on him. But he fails. I mean, allowing him to shave with hair down and shirt open right after he burned a lot of supporting characters? Which woman in audience will care for the victims anymore when they see hot Jason fanservice?

Too bad he didn't slay Mel Gibson when he could but just HAD to do some Evil Gloating... he obviously haven't read the Evil Overlord List.

On the other hand, this DVD had some of the best "extra features" in my opinion.  I had rented it so I can't list here.
