All the Zany Ways Jason Comes Back to Life in the Friday the 13th Movies

As the Friday the 13th saga spun out of control, the series began to cook up increasingly demented ways to bring back its villain. At first, in Part IV, Jason merely woke up in a morgue, despite an axe to the head at the end of Part III. Seems possible. Then came the blast of lightning, the meddling psychic girl, and, 500 years into the future, certain … sounds.

For those who haven’t kept up with the franchise, we’ve recapped all of Jason’s many zany reanimations in the video above.
