Horror in space

'Friday the 13th' may have been panned by critics when first released but since then it is one of the most famous and influential horror films, the franchise containing one of horror's most iconic villains. The film is popular enough to become a franchise and spawn several sequels of varying quality and generally inferior to the one that started it all off.

Due to the location and incorporating space and sci-fi, on top of all the expected 'Friday the 13th' elements then some, 'Jason X' is certainly different and a little credit is due for that. For a 'Friday the 13th' film it and 'Jason Takes Manhattan' are pretty unique as far as the series goes. 'Jason X' is an example of different not really being a good thing.

Interesting idea and understand totally what the film was trying to do, but it was messily executed. The strengths and faults are pretty much the same as with the previous entry 'Jason Goes to Hell', excepting 'Jason X' is marginally better because it tried to be different.

A couple of creative and disturbing deaths and some inventive and stylish camera work lift 'Jason X' to a better level.

One good performance too, which comes from Kane Hodder. Again creeping and chilling the socks off the viewer as Jason.

However, those are the only praises really that can be given. The music is a little appealing on the ears, but it still doesn't have the eeriness and mystery that the pre-'Jason Goes to Hell' films had so brilliantly and doesn't fit as adeptly.

That is the least bad though of the drawbacks, which are pretty much the same as those of the worst 'Friday the 13th' films but even worse than before. Again, like 'Jason Goes to Hell', while a good deal of 'Friday the 13th' films are silly, the silliness here is overkill that it becomes insultingly ridiculous. 'Jason X' is one of the most unique conceptually of the series, but it sure is one of the strangest to the point of overdone weirdness.

'Jason X' tonally feels muddled and like it was trying to do too much with too many elements screaming of kitchen-sink. If it tried to do less it would perhaps have been a better film. Hodder aside, the acting is really horrendously amateur hour, even for the 'Friday the 13th' films where acting rarely was a strength.

Likewise with the dialogue, which is even worse than 'Jason Goes to Hell', with 'Friday the 13th' at its most taking-simplicity-to-extremes, stilted, cheesiest and lacking in taste. Scariness and suspense is nil, instead going for witless comedy and gratuitous gore and nudity. The deaths go for quantity rather than quality, and generally are not particularly imaginative or creepy. The story is paper thin and confused, with too hectically paced storytelling and there is the sense that the series has gotten really stale even with a change in location.

Overall, lame. 3/10 Bethany Cox

The best film ever made

This is the best film ever made. The best film ever made used to be Jason Takes Manhattan, but now Jason is in space, which is crazier than Manhattan, so now Jason X is the best film ever made. Jason Takes Manhattan will have to settle for second place. Sorry, Jason Takes Manhattan.

The X is Killing the Fun

(I am Reviewing this Film in the Context of the Series and as mildly as possible as an actual Film on its own)

To quote a line from the Film itself which perfectly describes the Whole experience "This sucks on so many levels!". If one would want to describe the Whole Film in as sparse words as possible it could simply be described as "Jason in Space" or "Imagine Alien without the Alien but with Jason instead and much cheaper looking".

First a bit about the Background of this Flick, it had the Biggest Budget of the main series (1-10) and it was meant as an re-igniter for the franchise, for the reason of "Jason goes to Hell" being the introduction for the long planned "Freddy vs Jason" (which finally came to fruition in 2003), one of the writers had the idea of Sending him to Space so the series could get a fresh entry.

The problems of this sequel are to many to count, from unnecessary transition scenes that break the mood to a horrible and cheap sounding Film Score, Bad lighting, and and and. The Worst problem of this Sequel is that you can see and feel that the Sets got made cheap and fast and the CGI was worse than on most TV Shows that where made in the 90s and the Dialogues where laughable Bad (even for a Friday the 13th Film). There are so many scenes where you force yourself trough and think how in the F#@*ing Hell did this get green-lit. Some examples: One of the Characters gets grabbed trough a Wall by his throat and Jason Pushes his Machete through the Wall and his back, the character says something like "aah oh god, how could you think you can kill me like this" and Jason Punches another Sharp object through and the Character says "ah that's it two is better than one" and he faints. Or a scene near the End Where a protagonist gets sucked trough a whole and right before she falls trough she says "this sucks on so many levels". This Film made me angry as i was plowing through the Whole Series, which grew to my Heart even if most of them where Trash they at least where a Big Bumper Bag of Fun, this one is not. One highlight of this Flick was a Scene where trough VR technology Jason gets transported to the 80s Crystal Lake and kills two Chicks in old Classic fashion, and as a wink to one of his predecessors, he hammers a girl in a sleeping bag against a tree.

This Film was an affront to everything that was Fun to the Series, the other Films where made way cheaper but managed to look way more expensive. The Director didn't seem to have enough of Fantasy and Vision, as laughable as the Idea may be imagine a more talented Director at the Helm. Ugly, Laughable, Boring and a Machete to the heart to one or mostly many fans of the Series. Don't watch this Film!!!
