Very entertaining installment is one of the weaker entries of the neverending Friday The 13th saga. This movie does have some creative kills like a Sauna Rock through the chest, Syringe stabbing and some other sick killings that will make you feel almost dirty. The film does take first part on a boat then second half in New York like the title promised as i like the alright performances and atmosphere of this film. It did bad at the box-office as it was the final movie for Paramount to do a Friday The 13th movie before New Line Cinema took over the series in 1991 when they bought the rights.
This DVD has terrific remastered sound and picture with nice extras like audio commentary, a featurette, slashed scenes featuring gory violence that was cut to avoid X rating and gag reel.
The rest of the time he takes to slaughtering students on a graduation trip on one of the student's father's ship. It's all more of the same formula which was definitely getting tired by this 8th installment. There's little suspense and veteran character actor Peter Mark Richman looks embarrassed to be involved. The least entertaining of the eleven films to be sure.
Release Date- September 15th, 2009
Paramount never really gave the Friday the 13th movies very good DVD releases, which upset a lot of fans. When you look at the films Paramount has produced it's easy to understand why the Friday the 13th flicks weren't top priority, but these films also made a lot of money for Paramount and they should have done a little something instead of just the trailer, which they stopped with The New Blood; after the success of Freddy Vs Jason, Paramount, put out a decent boxed set, and now with the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot, Paramount has given Deluxe Edition releases.
The Deluxe Editions feature new transfers and features and overall has been alright with the exception of The Final Chapter, which might be the best release of 2009. Jason Takes Manhattan the last of the Paramount series now gets it due with a Deluxe Edition Release.
Often seen as one of the weakest of the Paramount series and it's not hard to understand, but overall I quite enjoyed this part. By no means is this a classic of the genre and nowhere near as good as the first 4 or the 6th, but with that said it's simply a fun movie that gets far too much heat.
I would have preferred the original cover art with the I Love Ny poster, but this one is pretty good and is sort of like the alternate poster, with a couple of changes, but it looks good and isn't made to look too modern and the slipcase is 3-D, which is really cool.
AUDIO COMMENTARY- Jensen Daggett, Scott Reeves, Kane Hodder
Entertaining track, but not the best I've heard, but fans should enjoy this one.Read more ›
