Set way in the future, Earth is no longer inhabitable, so humans have colonized in outer space. One colony receives two cryogenically frozen bodies, and when they defrost them, one of the bodies turns out to be.....who else? Jason Voorhees. No longer in the forest or Camp Crystal Lake, Jason stalks the colonists in a whole new environment. Written by
Retrieving a relic of Jason Voorhees frozen in time, a group of students studying in the future find themselves stalked through their space-station home by the reawakened killer and must use the technology of the time to stop him.
This was an absolutely fantastic entry, one of the more enjoyable and exciting entries in the series. The best part of this is the extremely high-impact action scenes, which generate the best times here. With the initial rampage through the ship resulting in a lot of cheesy goodness to come the scenes set in the futuristic landscape, the great shoot-outs both with the soldiers and the cyborg getting into the proceedings as well to generate even more good times with this one. The inclusion of the soldiers allows for some incredibly fun times as well, with a spectacular stalking scene in a cargo-bay that generates some fine deaths and great suspense, as well as getting the action requirements out very nicely. With a bit of subtle comedy here and there, a rather unique change in appearance that suits the film's more Sci-Fi leanings perfectly, a few nice odes to the others in the series and a total tongue-in-cheek attitude, there's not a lot wrong here and it really only comes down to personal tolerance of the cheese to find any flaws here. It's a lot of fun regardless.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Brief Nudity, and a short sex scene.
