Jason X (2001) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Yup Jason X is bad.  But its bad in a knowing, fun and silly kind of way that the franchise had been seriously lacking up to this point.  Just the idea of taking Jason and putting him on a space ship is insane BUT even with piss poor 90’s CGI, a near total lack of nudity and gore and acting that is at best dubious the film is just such damn fun. From VR deaths, 80’s Friday The 13th homages to a Cyborg Jason this film just knows what it is and delivers on that, never trying to be anymore or less.  And I kinda salute it for that… oh and did I mention CYBORG JASON?????? Barking mad.

Best Bit:Face, Liquid Nitrogen, Desk.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream
