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.
In the Year 2008, Jason Vorhees is cryogenically frozen in a Government Facility in Camp Crystal Lake, along with scientist Rowan. Many centuries later, in the year 2455, Earth is uninhabitable, and humans have moved to another planet known as Earth II. However, a team of students awakens both him and Rowan on a spaceship known as the Grendel. Jason begins killing the students and crew of the ship. Along the way, he is upgraded to Uber Jason. It's now up to Rowan and the surviving students to stop Jason, this time on a spaceship.Written by

Betsy Palmer was doing a play in Toronto at the time Jason X was filming. According to Palmer, one of the producers contacted her about possibly reprising her role as Pamela Vorhees. They did not come to an agreement, and the character was not included in the film. See more »
(at around 11 mins) The robot (Kay Em-14) states that the KryoGenic-unit was manufactured in 2010. Later (at around 17 mins) the same robot says that "she" (Rowan) has been "down" (frozen) for "4.55 centuries". Finally it's stated that the year is 2455, meaning that the machine was manufactured only 4.45 centuries ago, not 4.55. See more »

Filmed was a short scene in the beginning where the girlfriend (Tracey) of the soldier (Johnson) guarding Jason brings him brownies and a blanket. She then has him take pictures of her with the sedated Jason until Rowan comes in and chews them out. It also revealed how Jason broke free (when the soldier put the blanket over him, it pulled free an IV line feeding Jason sedatives). See more »
To put it simply enough, 'JasonX' is a spicy mixture of all the cheapest entertaining aspects of cinema. It's got space, mindless sci-fi, androids, borg sex, sensuality, action, gore and finally, Jason Voorhees. The basic plot is really dumb, but works in a way to give a new touch to this 10th installment of "Friday the 13th" series. Because at least it is well-known that no director would take a risk of making a Jason movie again at Camp Crystal Lake, after "Jason Goes to Hell" literally murdered the famous slasher franchise. So we needed something new. Okay, "JasonX" IS something new. But it should have been way better.
I think it's useless to point out keyholes in this disgusting story. But one thing must be said about the 'uber-Jason' -- it is totally crap. the old Jason with the hockey mask was way much cooler. Please, if any one of you plan another "Friday the 13th" movie, don't bring this uber-Jason. And cast Kane Hodder. He's the best Jason ever.
