Jason X (2001) Review:

This tenth opus of the Friday the 13th franchise is in the pure vein of the other sequels, except with a completely different setup. This time the story is set…in space. I know, what the fuck? I was worried, on the view of the other sequels’ budget that the space aspect would really look like shit. But the budget for Jason X was actually around 11 million $, more than twice the budget of the most expensive sequel (Friday the 13th Part VIII with 5 million budget).

This, however, does not make the movie any better. Aside from Jason himself, the rest look like a science fiction telefilm from the ’90s. This doesn’t affect too much the style of the movie, however, which is the usual juxtaposition of Jason killing people one after the other, in the very brutal and simple way that made the success of the franchise. Voorhes is killing a hell lot of people in Jason X. The higher budget results in overall better quality of the special effects, including the use of cool future-related element such as a splendid kill with a sink of liquid nitrogen.

This said, the flaws of a Friday the 13th sequels are still here: horrible acting, multiple goofs, and scenario nonsenses so easy to spot that a 12 years old would notice them. Some scenes, such as the final one in space, is worthy of Sharknado in how bad it looks. But the fun is there…and the new look of Jason is a cool bonus. One for the fans only.
