Overview

The hockey-masked killer Jason goes cosmic in the tenth installment of the Friday the 13th series, Jason X. New Line has done an excellent job at making sure this 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer looks sharp, detailed, and very well produced. With solid black levels and bright colors throughout, this transfer should please any self-respecting horror film buff. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, DTS Surround, and Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, all in English. Both the Dolby 5.1 and DTS mix are in full bombastic order with multiple uses of directional effects throughout the movie. With nary an ounce of hiss or distortion in the mix, both of these soundtracks are very loud and enveloping. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. Jason X is featured as one of New Line's "Platinum Series" DVDs, and as such sports a vast array of extra features. Starting out the disc is a commentary track with director James Isaac, writer Todd Farmer, and producer Noel Cunningham. This is a grandly entertaining commentary with all kinds of stories about the film's production and lots of tidbits about the character of Jason (played by the imposing Kane Hodder). "The Many Lives of Jason Voorhees" is a half-hour featurette that takes a probing yet humorous eye to the legendary Friday the 13th series. Featuring interviews by film critic Drew McWeeny, film historian David del Valle, B-movie host Joe Bob Briggs and others, this is an exceptionally entertaining piece on the history of the franchise. "By Any Means Necessary: The Making of Jason X" is a nice promotional piece on the making of the film with interviews by the principle cast and crew members. Much of the information from this featurette is covered in the commentary, though this is still a worthwhile treat for fans. Finally there is a theatrical trailer for the film, along with a fun "Jump to a Death" menu.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Like any business, a B-grade horror franchise needs occasional investment in its infrastructure in order to stem the tide of ever-lessening returns. And so, following the success of Halloween: H20, the Friday the 13th series gets its own renovation. With a splashy-enough concept and ad campaign to lure big audiences the week before Spider-Man took summer 2002 by storm, Jason X is certainly a far cry better than most of the pitiable late-'80s installments in the series. But in its willingness to poke fun at both itself and the other movies from which it cribs, the flick isn't a whole lot different from 1993's Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. The best sequences are therefore the jokiest, and also, coincidentally, the most indebted to Star Trek. In the first, a female Mr. Spock/Data hybrid suddenly sprouts bondage gear and Charlie's Angels attitude. In the second, Jason, trapped on an imitation Holodeck, gets to party like it's 1980 at the expense of retro-bimbo phantasms. Elsewhere, it's all bland teen sex-comedy rejects in sub-Lost in Space costumes getting sliced and diced with ruthless efficiency. Despite the presence of a character named Dallas, the film never achieves a single moment of actual Alien-style terror. As for enjoyable gore, there are some inventive assassinations, such as the use of liquid nitrogen to render a human head into a blood Popsicle. Aside from the intentional laughs, there are some accidental ones, including an android beheading too cheap to make use of even a single digital FX shot to make it look convincing. It's as if, having blown their entire budget on post-Seven opening credits and Resident Evil character concepts, the producers had to scrimp when it came to the actual movie. Still, a thoroughly slick Friday the 13th just wouldn't gel with the rest of the series; it's enough to know that someone somewhere was willing to put enough time and money into a Jason flick to infuse it with even a modicum of cool.

    Jason X is just dumb fun.

    First of all anybody who wants a serious horror film and wants to be scared out of their mind stay clear of this one. Now if you just want to have 90 minutes of mindless fun then rent or buy Jason X. Deaths are awsome and it is funny. The thing that makes this movie great is that the film makers new this was another stupid Friday the 13th movie. One last thing if you gave this movie a bad review then you were expecting Oscar material. Belive me you won't find that on a Friday the 13th movie. Jason RULES!!!!

    Leave your brain at the openning credits and have some fun!

    This was an awesome slasher film featruing the return of Jason Vorhees, the insane murderer who cant seem to be killed. Although the space setting is kinda goofy, this movie really works and does not take itself seriously, neither should the viewer. The death scenes are terrific and this movie actually manages to get a few genuine laughs out of you with some homage to previous friday films. A must for people lookin for a fun slasher flick!

    Jason X is the worst out of the series!

    This movie really disappointed me for many reason because who would think of putting Jason in space,the storyline was dumb, and it didn't scary me.

    NOT SO GOOD

    I didn't really know what to expect when going to see this movie. After seeing it I was disappointed, but there were a few things that made the movie good. These things are: violence, the sleeping bag scene, and the beginning. It starts out very good, but gets worse as it goes on. I thought this movie was pretty funny, but that didn't make it good.

    Friday the 13th 10

    This one was interesting and at least I thought well in the future seemed like they have finally found a solution but alas didn't work out exactly but still he got an upgrade and looks powerful than ever with a new look plus it was a little entertaining though.

    One of the worst sequels...ever to be filmed.

    I'm not a 'die hard' fan of any film. I think people like that are weird. Anyone who worships a film series is just not right. But I have seen every 'Friday' film. I think some are good, and some are awful. The good ones would have to be part 1, 4, 6, 7, and that's about it. I am counting 'Freddy vs. Jason' in this, just so you know. The most awful are 3, 5, 9, and 10. The fifth takes the grand przie though. That film was one of the most pointless films...it just makes me bad to talk about it. But when 'Jason X' came along, I was sort of excited. I hadn't been old enough to know anything about 'Jason Goes To Hell', so when 'X' was released, I wanted to see it. I didn't get to make it to the theater though. No where around where I live was it showing. Smart people. The theaters around me knew not to waste their time. But when it was released on DVD, I bought it. And I watched it. And I hated it. The worst thing in the film is the acting. No one can act...period. Everyone was trying to be funny or sexy, and they just looked like a few retarded Star Trek chracters. The next worst thing was the score. The music should have been in the comedy 'Scary Movie', not a movie that is trying to be scary. The score was so 70s. I hated almost everything about this movie. The only reason ANYONE should EVER buy the DVD is to watch the feature 'The Many Lives of Jason'. It is really informative and talks about every film. Otherwise, don't waste your time even thinking about this film. To me, it doesn't exisit in this series. The seires sucked at some points, and this, my friends, was it's lowest point.

    OK, WHERE'S THE MOVIE

    I was so excited to see the my first Jason Voorhees movie in the theaters (since I was born). When I saw it I was getting more and more bored by the second. The plot was ok. BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO FOOL JASON WITH A HOLOGRAM THAT'S WHEN YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR. If you want to buy it fine but you will be wasting your MONEY$$$$!

    One sequel too many

    What is it with slasher style horrors that makes people do so many sequels. After endless sequels to other films like Halloween, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Hellraiser, the writers scrape the bottom of the barrel with this film. Jason is frozen, re-animated, and kills everyone except for the hero/heroine, basically that sums up the story. Look out for a sequel ''Friday 13th XI - Jason's Revenge'' Where Jason in a peak of rage at shoddy storylines kills the screen writers of this film and retires to Camp Crystal Lake to go fishing.

    The best and funniest Jason film in some time

    This one had me rolling! At this point we all know that Jason will 'live on' and that's the whole idea of the film. The critics who write about pointless gore and grotesque situations don't really understand the genre of this picture. I watched it three times over one weekend and found more and more ''favorite scenes''. The fact that one can actually ''jump to a kill'' on the DVD version is hilarious. I came back to buy it!! RENT OR BUY THIS IF YOUR A REAL FAN OF JASON.

    It was actually pretty good...

    I'm reading all these people talkin' trash about Jason X being really bad, and sucking and all that, and even one that said that it was nothing but the same boring Friday the 13th story but in space. Duh! I really liked this movie. I thought it was going to suck bad, but ten minutes into the movie, with Jason killing all those government spooks in a military facility, I was again rooting for my favorite slasher. The deaths are great, with lots of gore (the frozen smashed head was great, although a little bit unreal because how did Jason knew that the liquid was going to freeze that girl's face...). There's even a hillarious scene with Jason beating a ''woman'' to death with another ''woman''. That's great. Only complaint I have? Jason had ears and hair. People also are saying that this movie does not tie with Friday the 13th continuity. Damn, people, do like I do. Watch the movie as a ''What if...'' kind of movie. ''What if Jason went to space?''

    The worst slasher film I have ever seen!

    Jason X is the typicall slasher flick with lots of gore and really bad actors and actresses. The film makes fun of itself with stupid jokes that people get tired of. The film doesn't explain how Jason Voorhes came back into the picture after ''Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.'' As usual, the only good actor in the film is the one who doesn't speak--the man who played Jason Voorhes. The film isn't scarey at all. It's so predictable that you can tell who will die and who will live when you meet all the characters. Jason X is the best film in the Jason Voorhes series. But sadly, that means that the other films before it were just plain horrible. It went from an insane murderer to a demon who won't die even though its happened many times. It's another slasher film that didn't have to be made. The way the characters die is so dumb and so incredibly gory. A girl's face is frozen and chattered on a table. A guy is pushed into a giant screw and rows down it. The gore is needless as the film is. As advice, don't even rent it. You'll waste money you didn't have to when you spend money on a movie that actually is remotely good.
