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

Because Jim Isaac wanted the acting in his film to "blow every other Friday movie out of the water." The associate producer videotaped the rehearsals on a camcorder for Isaac, who would view them afterward to get ideas from seeing his characters in action. The problem was with all the script re-writes a lot of the time Isaac didn't even know if what the actors were rehearsing was still going to be in the movie (most of it wasn't). See more »
(at around 1h 18 mins) When we first see the TMF emergency vessel, it extends a "lifeline" docking bridge from its ship into the Grendal. However, when they are departing the lifeline disconnects from the TMF and remains on the Grendal. See more »

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!
OK, Yeah it's the Tenth in the series. Don't expect an epic. Because this is not.
To be honest, it's not got the biggest budget and at the tenth in a series, you won't really find incredible Oscar-winning actors, hence some of the acting remains a bit dodgy at parts throughout the film. Neither will you get awesome special effects and CGI, which this doesn't.
However, if you love an insane story-line and lots of gore and murder and menace then this one delivers, and it delivers well. Kane Hodder as Jason definitely delivers the hulking figure and menace that Voorhees has and he does it so well. It's an action-packed hour and a half and not to be taken too seriously. So if you sit back and don't put too much thought into it, it's really quite enjoyable. I certainly did.
Sit back and relax....
