‘Part 8’ of the infamous horror franchise wasn’t a success. No surprise really as it’s a classic case of a film with a completely misleading title. Having the undead masked serial killer, Jason Voorhees, slashing his way through New York sounds like a good idea for a film, right? Yes, you’re right. However, the ‘money men’ behind the film didn’t agree.

For budgetary reasons they couldn’t afford to shoot in the Big Apple until the final twenty minutes, leaving pretty much the whole film set on a boat heading to the city in question. Here we have the typical ‘slasher’ film, only on a boat instead of the traditional camp in the woods.

So, fans were more than a little annoyed at the misleading nature of the film. Also – for no reason at all – Jason can now ‘teleport.’ One minute he’s a hundred yards behind you, then next he’s standing in front of you. Yes, he’s a supernatural being, but no explanation is given for this new talent. Plus it does tend to spoil the ‘chase’ between killer and victim when no matter where and how fast you run, he just appears in front of you every time.

So, Part 8 is a bit of a let-down in general. Yes, there are a few nice touches here and there and if you’re a die hard fan of the series you’ll probably appreciate it. However, although it’s definitely watchable (if you’re into this sort of film) it’s not one of the better films in the franchise. Even the writer agrees that not enough time is spent in Manhattan and agrees with fans. Apparently, it was all down to the film’s producers that they weren’t allowed to spend enough time there.

Absolute Garbage.We hardly see Jason in New York,just briefly for about the last 15 minutes.The effects are also Rubbish,ranging from poorly created Rubber heads to Jason stabbing someone in the stomach with a Spear gun and pulling out innards that look more like Rubbers hoses and coloured shoelaces. The Acting is Awful and the Writing and character development next to non existent. Want to know the best bit about this flick? The Trailer.Check it out on line,like the title itself.It promises so much and produces Nothing of any interest.

As the 80s came to an end, Jason Vorhees continued to wreak bloody mayhem; this time the director wastes no time with preamble, and the laughable ruse of a boat (inhabited by two amourous teens of course) weighing anchor, and the anchor rupturing a power cable that resuscitates the dormant horror that is Jason, is used to bring him back once more.
For some reason, Jason's first victim always has a hockey mask handily lying around, and of course the monster soon claims it in order for that iconic look to be reinstated. After despatching the shagging couple; Jason stows away on a ship that is taking more big-haired teens to the Big Apple for a graduation reward; cue further nubile teenage girls getting their kits off; more obnoxious nerds; a teacher who soon loses control of his students; and a girl who is afraid of the water and keeps having visions of a young Jason drowning in Crystal Lake and begging her for help. Naturally, the majority of the above are quickly dispatched; using various imaginative weapons from an electric guitar to a harpoon gun. Why Jason continues to hide between kills is a mystery to me; it's not like there's anyone to come to the kids' rescue!
Along with a creepy deckhand whose constant claims that "You're all gonna die!" hark back to the third instalment in the franchise; this is pretty risible stuff; once the surviving five make it to New York City on a lifeboat, Jason also appears, tracks them down and slaughters them. A spark of life comes when a gang of street punks attempt to confront Jason and he lifts up his mask, causing them to apologize and flee from the nightmarish sight; this is one of two moments of black humour in the film, that save it from being a total waste of 90 minutes.

Well what can i say about friday the 13th pt8.....In a nut shell,this is the worst movie out of the Jason saga.I mean keeping Jasons killing spree in crystal lake was eerie and great fun,but now to have him killing in a big city,come on people this is getting abit out of hand.The plot was just a big joke just like the rock chick in it that thinks she can play a rock guitar,good on Jason for killing her with it LOL.Get this dvd at your own pearl,but avoid it if you can.

While this one may not be the best in the series (or the most popular), I found "Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan" to be a very entertaining and enjoyable Jason flick. It gets the job done, and then some. The movie delivers everything we'd expect to see in a Jason movie; a gruesome body-count, cool and unusual ways of dying, and only having one or two survivors at the end of the ordeal. Plus, the movie has a cool and different setting that gives Jason some new tricks up his sleeves.
Jason was thrown back into the lake and chained by the end of Part 7. However, his body has been disturbed once again and causes him to rise up from the lake and start his killing spree all over again. This time, things are a bit different as he sneaks onto a cruise boat full of students on their way to a field trip. Even though it is not his usual territory, Jason proves to be a unmerciful killer wherever he is. And the last 20 minutes or so Jason is in New York; a whole new playground for him to spread his terror and bloodshed.
I thought this was a pretty neat movie. They went for something different and it worked (unlike "Jason Goes to Hell"). While it offers a different setting, it's still the good old Jason formula we've all come to love. I wished that Jason could've been in New York more, though. It would've been cool to see him get a chance to increase the body-count rather than just go after the ones who got off the boat (I know, he mainly only goes after those who return to Crystal Lake, but you have to admit it's a cool idea. I mean, he's there already. Why not give him a chance to take out more people?). Besides that little complaint, I thought it was a cool Jason flick.
The DVD is pretty poor. The picture and sound quality is good, considering how long ago this movie was made.
