The tenth film in the 'Friday the 13th' sci-fi horror series. The year is 2455. Earth is no longer inhabitable, so humans have colonised outer space. One colony receives two cryogenically frozen bodies, and when they defrost them, one of the bodies turns out to be Jason Vorhees. No longer in the forest of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason stalks the colonists in a whole new environment.

When the remorseless Jason Vorhees is captured by the authorities (not seen here) they attempt to execute him in various ways - without success. When the government decides to transfer him to a secret laboratory in order to discover the secret of his immortality he escapes, with laborious inevitability, and slaughters a squad of soldiers before one of the researchers traps him in a cryonic freezing chamber where he is frozen - but not before he manages to almost fatally stab her through the chamber door.
Jump forward to the year 2455 and a party of students on a field trip discovers the frozen pair and takes them back to their spacecraft - clearly they've never heard of the hockey-mask wearing psychopath, oops. Carnage ensues.
Although this movie was the lowest-grossing in the series, and has been routinely panned by fans and critics since its release in 2002, I actually liked it a lot more than some of its predecessors. Perhaps it's the fact that in 2455 it's clearly mandatory for attractive young women (and they all are) to wear skintight and revealing clothes, or the fact that the crew are so obnoxious that it's a pleasure to see them slaughtered. Whatever it is, the complete lack of plot, character development, coherence or wit should make this film suck, but it's actually pretty fun, with some nice SFX and a decent pace.
I'll try to not put spoilers in.
I've only seen one 'Jason' film and thought it was unpleasant. So why did I buy this one? because one night I flicked on to one scene and thought 'whoa' what's this? I soon realised and still watched it to the end. Yes one scene was SOOOO good I had to get the movie.
The start was sort of silence of the lambs-like. but necessary to set the story in motion. Also excellently violent. but oddly not nasty.
the next scene begins the real story - some really nice touches here made easier by having it set when its set i.e tech has advanced.
the fact that the location is isolated is excellent and non of this 'oh no signal' guff - in fact the opposite. an audience gets to hear spree in crystal clear tones.
Some of the 'kills' are just genius some have whimsical moment its the whole spectrum - something for everyone. One sardonic comment was soooo blatantly obvious you just know it so why di they have to actually say it. Perhaps it could have been delivered better or just not said. It doesn't affect the movie over all so no harm done.
Doig - D'oh - how she gets second billing is beyond me. half the time she looks like she doesn't know what's going on and the other half she looks like she doesn't care. I'm not sure she actually has any talent. there must have been hundreds of equally or better looking actresses out there who would have done that part for a lot less (I'm guessing) AND would have put more life in to it.
Hodder is great as Jason - he does more acting with eyes than doig does with her whole body.
The rest of the cast live/die/scream/run etc very credibly -actually very well.
But the real star of it all (is not the machete - doig could get some lessons from the machete) and steals not just a scene or so but the whole movie is Ryder. Shan't spoil it but you'll know the scene that clinches it when it you see it. Is it clichéd ? yes I admit it's a scene we've scene a thousand times before in a million different movies BUT this time it's just..... right. it's done sooo well. Why did love it ? because as Warren Oats says (BMTHOAG) "...because it's so damn good".
Overall a brilliant film well executed (no pun...) well written - very well written - it flows well, the lines are good the scenes work it is the work of genius ( except for the bright spark who cast doig).
Perhaps I like this Jason more than the early versions because the emphasis here is on style and humour not gore and horror.
ACID TEST: would I buy/watch again or recommend? YES
