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!

Format: DVD
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?

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!

this is one boring movie.i had to fight from turning it off before the
end.there are a couple of funny moments,particularly the reaction(or
rather non reaction)of the New Yorkers to Jason.mostly though,the movie
is just silly.i guess most of the movies in the series are silly,but
this movie is silly even in the confines of the series.for me,it's the
worst one of the first 8.but that's just me.my vote for Friday the 13th
Part VIII:Jason takes Manhattan is a 2/5

I just ordered this DVD, and I cannot WAIT for it to arrive. I've never seen this movie. I haven't read any reviews, and I've avoided hearing anything about it -- I don't want anything to spoil the surprise. I've closed my eyes and copied/pasted any comments I've stumbled upon into one big document so I can go back after I've seen the movie, to read what other big "Friday the 13th" fans have to say!
I'm giggling in anticipation of seeing Jason Voorhees tear his way through New York City for at least 90 minutes of carnage!
More than a decade years ago, I was coerced into attending a screening of "Star Trek V: the Final Frontier." Before that film began, the theater dimmed to blackness. A trailer began. The screen blazed with the Manhattan skyline at night; the speakers pulsed with the melody of Frank Sinatra's famous song. The camera panned left, fixing on the back of a lone figure gazing at Gotham's towering lights. Closer...closer the frame crept to the onlooker until * GASP! * he whipped around to reveal the famous battered hockey mask that haunts us all. Screams and cheers filled the theater; it was a magically horrifying moment.
I also remember the fabled "I [heart] NY" version of the movie's poster, with Jason ripping through. Legal issues forced the recall of that brilliant marketing design, sadly lost to the mists of time.
Thanks to a strict Creationist upbringing, I was never allowed to fulfill my desperate wish to see "Jason Takes Manhattan" in a movie theater, and my rigorous home-schooling prevented me from obtaining a home-video version before this day.
However, the release of "Freddy vs. Jason" spurred me to seek out the temptations of my adolescence.
