Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
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
(at around 1h 21 mins) The music played during Jason's first look at the virtual reality Camp Crystal Lake is the same musical score as the one in Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981). See more »
When Jason is outside the ship and punches the hole to get back inside, the crew rushes to the door and close it because the lack of pressure is causing them to be sucked out of the ship. They go through several rooms and close multiple doors. Yet when Jason rips through the final door, there's no sudden rush of air, no loss of cabin pressure, even though there would be a continuous path to the broken outer wall of the ship. See more »

The Jason Voorhees of the 1980's is well gone, as the Friday the 13th series is taken into a sci-fi realm. Looking like it was filmed in a tacky '90's laser quest arena; the film contains a myriad of my pet peeves from later day horrors including terrible CGI and a huge cast of indistinct characters devoid of personality who wisecrack on their deathbed.
It is lame on every level, with bad acting, and a dire script. I could overlook some of this if it was entertaining. However it is minute after minute of people walking down spaceship corridors, spouting sci-fi gobbledygook into headsets or talking into computer monitors about how to open doors or land the craft that no one on board appears to know how to operate.
Inexcusably Jason's not really very noticeable. He does have a Terminator style makeover which was briefly mildly amusing. Overall he is involved in the dullest set of deaths, non-scares and chases the series has seen. There was a glimmer of a good idea near the end where Jason was placed in a virtual reality Crystal Lake but that was quickly squandered. Potentially the set-up could have worked in more talented hands, but it remains a rancid turd which feels as if it was written by someone with no love for horror (or even sci-fi) films. Gross.
