After the disappointing results at the box-office, Paramount decided to sell the Friday the 13th film series to New Line Cinema, making "Jason Takes Manhattan" the last feature produced by Paramount, until the 2009 remake. Only three other sequels were released in between. See more »
Charles says that Tamara had better have her Biology final done. If they're on a graduation cruise ship, the school year must already be over and thus finals would have already happened long before the cruise would have taken place. See more »
It's like this... We live in claustrophobia; the land of steel and concrete, trapped by dark waters. There is no escape, nor do we want it. We've come to thrive on it and each other. You can't get the adrenaline pumpin' without the terror, good people... I love this town.

German video version was cleaned of some of the violent scenes and runs 99 instead of 100 mins (calculated NTSC running-time) See more »
One thing all Jason films have common is that they all have different aspects for the killer's background. In the course of several bloody events they always try to built up some sort of deep, emotional story over the Chrystal Lake legend. This one actually tries to milk desperately some tears out of audience. No success in that, but lets look at this peace of art as a standard slasher entertainment: The story is quite pathetic but thats no problem, it always is. Good thing about it is that the movie actually is very fast-paced without the usual one-hour-nonsense in the beginning. The killing spree starts off right away as the body-count keeps increasing into massive rates towards the ending. Even though not much of gore is shown, but it's always nice to see stupid, I mean STUPID teenagers die. Overall we see few hilarious scenes with the new more humorous and laid-back Jason. For example a decapitation with a punch of a fist! The movie should be titled instead "Jason Goes Sailing" as most of it happens on a ship on it's way to New York. Anyway, an entertaining above the average Jason-movie. Please don't take it seriously.
