Storyline

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 updated by Lucy Gillam

Trivia

During Jason X's development process, director Jim Isaac, producer Noel Cunningham (Sean's son), and screenwriter Todd Farmer kicked around any scenario they could think of it, typically "Jason in [insert blank] (the hood, snow, underwater, the arctic, in L.A. fighting gangs, on safari)." They even considered something involving the NASCAR circuit. Farmer suggested "in space" because he knew Freddy Vs. Jason was on the way, and it'd be best if Jason X was set after the events of that epic battle. So, they needed to jump into the future, and going into space certainly did that. They were a little scared of doing a horror sequel in space [see: Hellraiser, Leprechaun, and Critters.], but they thought it could be fun to do a mash-up of Ridley Scott's Alien and James Cameron's Aliens with not one but two strong Ripley-type females on a ship of bad-ass space marines hunted by Jason instead of xenomorphs.

Goofs

When the Solaris station is destroyed, there is silence for a moment and then the characters on the ship can hear and feel the explosion. In the vacuum of space there is no air, therefore no sound or shock-waves. See more »

Alternate Versions

Region 1 DVD commentary notes scenes that were edited to avoid an NC-17. The scenes are:
  • A less bloodier take of Dr. Wimmer's spear through stomach scene.
  • A very small amount of frames were removed from the shot of Adrienne's head after it was shattered(the bloody stump).
  • The scene where the Grunt get "screwed" was edited to remove some more footage of his body spinning down the giant screw.
  • Other than those scenes, all other death scenes are fully uncut, including the Grunt who is disemboweled!

* out of 4.
23 June 2003 | by brandonsites1981See all my reviews

After much talk, costly delays, reshotting and last minute editing the end result is one of the most disappointing horror films in recent memory. You can always tell when a horror series has hit its low point when they move the action to outer space. Anyway, Jason goes to outer space and he chops up the usual amoral teens, but not without the same zest as the earlier films. This is the worst of the series. It's cheap looking and it lacks everything that has made even the worst of the Friday films mildly entertaining.
