Well, actually i don't think Jason X is a truly terrible film. It's actually pretty good for what it is. I know a lot of people don't think much of it, but i think it's a fun movie. Don't get me wrong - it's not the greatest horror film in the world. But there are some good things about it.
First off, there's good news for people who plan on living for a mighty long time. In the future, 450 years from now, all the women are seriously hot, and they all wear sexy little sweaters. So when you're thinking about killing yourself, just remember: sexy sweaters. That should keep you alive.
Yes, Jason X takes place in the future. It's the science fiction Friday The 13th. Jason in space. And why not? I hope the next one takes place in the old west, and somewhere in the background is Dr. Brown driving a DeLorean.
Anyway, in Jason X, Jason actually cuts a guy's arm off just by falling down while holding a machete. How about that?
Plus you get a scene of crossdressing S&M between a student and her teacher, which culminates in the teacher shouting, "You pass!"
This film definitely has a sense of humor about itself, and about the entire Friday The 13th series, especially in the virtual reality scene where Jason is trying to kill two girls in sleeping bags by taking one of the sleeping bags and smashing it repeatedly against the other. You can hear the virtual girls shouting, "Ouch!" Wonderful.
