Product Description

Amazon.ca

Start spreadin' the news... Jason Voorhees, the cleaver-hoisting man in the hockey mask, has finally left Crystal Lake behind and taken his vagabond shoes to the Big Apple. Actually, Jason spends most of his time on a cruise ship bound for Manhattan, carving up the unluckiest high school graduation party ever. You'd think the change of scenery might breathe new life, or death, into the series, but chapter 8 is standard stalk 'em and slash 'em fare, albeit with a nautical slant. The title hints at a comic tone, but except for the one-joke idea that Jason fits right into the menacing urban scene, forget it. (The comedy would wait until the surprisingly entertaining Jason X.) This one does have a pretty leading lady, Jensen Daggett, whose visions of the young drowned Jason are occasionally creepy. The grown-up Jason, like "these little-town blues," is melting away. --Robert Horton

Jason's my main man, and you know that - but Friday the 13th Part VIII - Jason Takes Manhattan is absolutely horrible in just about every way imaginable. It is far and away the worst film in the entire series. I simply have nothing good to say about this film. The only way I can even stomach its existence is to theorize that Freddy Vs. Jason might never have been made were it not for this cinematic atrocity. In other words, had this film not been such a flop at the box office (earning little more than fourteen million dollars), Paramount might never have sold the franchise to New Line Cinema, and I don't think we would ever have seen a battle royale between Jason and Freddy had the two slasher icons not been brought together under the same network.

Warning: beware of plot holes and inconsistencies of gigantic proportions. I won't even bother to tell you how Jason gets resurrected from the bottom of Crystal Lake yet again because it is extremely hokey. Suffice it to say that Jason's back, and this time he makes his way onboard a ship full of graduating seniors headed for a visit to New York City. As luck would have it, Rennie Wickham (Jensen Daggett) defies her uncle's wishes and decides to come along - despite her intense fear of water (which may or may not have something to do with Jason). Her uncle (Charles McCulloch) is one of the school's teachers and the man in charge of the big trip to the Big Apple - and he is an insufferable, stuck-up bore with some serious control issues when it comes to his guardianship of Rennie, whom he took in to his home after her parents were killed in a car wreck some years earlier. Guess what happens?

i'm a die-hard fan of the friday the 13th films, have been since i was like 10. i'm now 18, and i still watch these films all the time! however, this specific one has to be the worst one in the series. the title is called "jason takes manhattan" right? well, for like the last 15 minutes of the movie, jason was in manhattan. the rest of the movie, jason was killing people on a ship. i also think that some of the deaths are cheesy. if you are new to the series (like i was 8 years ago), then check out friday the 13th part 4. it's my fave one of the series!

Not the best in the series, but Jason in a new setting! An unwelcome stowaway on the graduation trip to New York, he starts in killing the teens one at a time. The best part of the movie is when they actually get to New York, which is about the last 30 minutes of the movie. Humorous to see my favorite killer chasing teens through subway tunnels and well lit streets and NO ONE SEEMS TO NOTICE! But most of the movie takes place on the boat. Fast forward to when Jason really takes Manhattan! If you don't, Jason will come for you! Tonight!

JASON TAKES MANHATTAN should have been the last Jason movie ever to be made. This would have been the perfect way for him to die and never ever come back. Well, the movie begins with a Great song with footage from New York in the opening credits and then it cuts back to Crystal Lake. Two people are bought to get it on when the guy tells the Voorhee's story. Jason is at the bottom of the lake because his foe, Tina, the telePATHIC girl from the previous entry supposedly killed him. Wel, Jason gets goosed by an electrical cord that brings him to life and kill the couple. Jason then goes to a boat headed to New York with a bunch of school kids, and kills students one by one. Kelly Hu gets killed very early and this is the one thing that had me hating this film. Kelly plays Eva Watanabe, and she is the most gorgeous girl in all the Friday the 13th movies. Rob Hedden should be hung at Paramount for not making her have the lead role instead of Jensen Daggett. The male lead was good and he and Kelly would have been good as a couple in this. The deaths are not detailed or graphic because of MPaa rating cuts, but Kane Hodder is the BEST JASON and this is the film that I try to believe was THE VERY, VERY, VERY end of Jason Voorhees.

The Fat Lady has sung, people. Its over. The End. Ka-put. Throw in the towel. This eighth film to the "Friday" movies is the first of three horrible, stupid, worthless, and useless sequels in film history. After being revived by an electrical cable Jason rises up from his grave,... again, to dispatch a group of high school graduates on a ship that is heading for New York City. The last half hour of the film is spent in N.Y.C. but, you would never know it with all of the crack alleys, and sewer tunnels that are shown.
The DVD is worthless. The movie sucks & there are no special features. Why buy it, let alone rent it?!?!

The only redeeming value is an all to brief gag with Jason's mask and a couple thugs who try to mug him and the film also marks the big screen debut of Kelly Hu (she would go on to star in "The Scorpion King" and as the mutant villian Lady Deathstrike in "X2: X Men United"). But, mostly avoid this film like the West Nile Virus.
