Walk Of Stars #10- Jason Lives: Friday the 13th VI


jasonThere are several names that are synonymous with horror films in Hollywood. Freddy, Michael, Hannibal, the list goes on…But the one thing that Michael Myers from Halloween II has in common with this weeks’ feature is that they both filmed in Georgia! This week the Covington, Georgia Walk of Stars tour resurrects Jason! That’s right, Jason Lives, Friday the 13th Part VI was filmed in Georgia and went to the box office in August of 1986. This horror flick starred several actors who went on to play in Days of Our Lives, 21 Jump Street, Star Trek, L.A. Law, CSI, Bones, Angel and more.

The Walk of Stars plays host to many genres of the film industry making it a truly one of a kind experience.  Starring Thom Mathews, David Kagen, Jennifer Cooke, Rene’e Jones and more.  Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI picks up on Tommy Jarvis, played by Thom Mathews, and his friend Hawes going to the Graveyard to cremate the body of Jason Voorhees.  BUT, Tommy accidentally resurrects Jason due to a lightning storm and now must kill him once and for all!  Tommy Jarvis earlier in the series of movies killed Jason in Crystal Lake in self-defense and was institutionalized because he just didn’t believe Jason was really dead…

Tommy, determined to save the town, gets locked in a holding cell by the sheriff who insists Tommy is just insane and therefore worth shrugging off.  Changing the name of the town won’t do any good, Crystal Lake will always be remembered for the gruesome and violent vengeful murders of Jason Voorhees!

Covington, Georgia will always be remembered as The Hollywood of the South with the most unique experience for everyone to enjoy!
