Jason X (2001)


“Oh, this sucks on so many levels! ” – Janessa

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Jun 2021)

Brief Synopsis – In the near future, Jason is cryogenically frozen and accidentally gets thawed out 4 Centuries later were he goes n a rampage in a spacecraft.

My Take on it – Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m not a fan of horror films at all and after watching so many films in this series, I was getting a bit overwhelmed by the who slasher idea.

This film takes a whole new direction with the story and it is by far my favorite of all 12 films featuring Jason.

The choice to set this in space in the distant future works so well and shows that even a rampaging killer like Jason can find ways to adapt to a new climate and environment quite easily.

Obviously, the main premise and idea of Jason remains the same because of the way that he makes his way through this spacecraft finding interesting and ingenious ways of killing the various inhabitants along the way.

The sci-fi aspects also help keep things nice and thrilling because the viewer gets to see how futuristic weapon work (or don’t) on a creature like him.

The story plays out really well and stays thrilling because of the way that they present things in such a unique fashion.

Of all of the films in the Friday the 13th series, this is probably the only one I would even consider watching again at some point because of the way it moves along at a great pace and feels more like a sci-fi film than as a horror one.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – While this film was a critical and financial failure in its initial release in theaters, it made more than triple the cost of production in DVD and post-theater sales. Statistically, It is one of the most successful ‘Friday the 13th’ films. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
