Start spreadin' the news... Jason Voorhees, the cleaver-hoisting man in the hockey mask, has finally left Crystal Lake behind and taken his vagabond shoes to the Big Apple. Actually, Jason spends most of his time on a cruise ship bound for Manhattan, carving up the unluckiest high school graduation party ever. You'd think the change of scenery might breathe new life, or death, into the series, but chapter 8 is standard stalk 'em and slash 'em fare, albeit with a nautical slant. The title hints at a comic tone, but except for the one-joke idea that Jason fits right into the menacing urban scene, forget it. (The comedy would wait until the surprisingly entertaining Jason X.) This one does have a pretty leading lady, Jensen Daggett, whose visions of the young drowned Jason are occasionally creepy. The grown-up Jason, like "these little-town blues," is melting away. --Robert Horton

Customer Reviews

This is not the worst of the Friday The 13th series but it's one of the worst.
Nuisance
When did Jason stop slashing teenagers in Camp Crystal Lake, get on a boat, kill all the passengers, and get off in Manhattan.
LadyLestat
You know that the people making this movie really didn't have a scary movie in mind when this one was made.

A year after Tina Sheperd sent Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder) to his watery grave in Camp Crystal Lake, he's been resurrected for more murdering. A beautiful senior student named Reenie (Jensen Daggett) with her teacher uncle Charles (Peter Mark Richman)and a fellow teacher Colleen (Barbara Bingham) are boarding a cruise boat to New York City with a class of students (Saffron Henderson, David Jacox, Kelly Hu, Scott Reeves, Sharelene Martin, VC Dupree, Martin Cummins, and Tiffany Paulson) to their graduation over there as Jason becomes a stowaway as he brings bloodshed to a ship of nightmares but later on Reenie with Charles, Colleen and two survivors escape to New York as they think they are safe for the mean undead goalie is gonna take over the big apple with any weapon or kill in a game of killer hide and go seek.

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.

First of all, the title is misleading. Due to budget restrictions, Paramount wouldn't let them film a lot in the Big Apple, so Jason's only in Manhattan for about twenty minutes of the movie.
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.

Format: DVD
As a general rule, any film with a large number of Roman numerals behind it is going to suck, and the eighth outing of the F-13 franchise, JASON TAKES MANHATTAN, obeys this rule to a fanatical degree. This movie is terrible, an utter embarrassment, and is noteworthy only as a study in corporate greed and marketing deception.

By the fourth installment of the series, the ironically titled FINAL CHAPTER, this formulaic slasher franchise was as exhausted as an old, blood-soaked boot. Jason Voorhees had outlived his usefulness and it was time for his rotted a*s to hang up the gaolie mask and retire. But the movie industry is an industry first, and when THE FINAL CHAPTER turned unexpectedly into a cash cow the studio execs at Paramount continued to flog their exhausted serial killer into progidies of meaningless violence. THE FINAL CHAPTER was followed by three more absolutely asinine sequels, which saw Jason improve the Crystal Lake gene pool by slaughtering legions of pot-smoking teenage dimwits. By this time P-mount was beginning to get embarrassed by their deformed, kill-crazy stepchild, yet the lure of an easy payday drew them on.

I still remember seeing the preview for this flick in a movie theater back in 1989. The audience ate it up. We actually believed that the producers had decided to tweak the exhausted series by loosing Jason in a place where he would probably feel right at home: the Big Apple. One could only imagine the bloody shennanigans Crystal Lake's least popular citizen could embark upon in New Yawk City! People were laughing out loud as they imagined him loose in the City of Lights. He could slay obnoxious Volcanoites! Teach rude cab drivers the errors of their ways! Annihilate the snotty salespeople at Tiffanys! Cut down on panhandlers!

By far the worst Friday ever. What is this piece of trash. This movie looks like it was made for TV and the acting is down right embarrassing. Who picked these people. Why is Jason away from Crystal Lake. And whats up wiyh him turning as a boy again. Simply atrocious. I have this one in forsake that I am a huge Friday Fan,but this was completely unneccasary. Part 8 makes Parts 6 and 7 look like masterpieces. Don't reccommend it stick with the first 5. Jason goes to Hell was an improvement but not much. This is a comedy. 1/2 a star.

If not for the travesty that is Jason X, this would be the worst movie in the series. I tend to not give movies 1 star ratings because there's usually something redeemable in every movie. No, not this time. Everything in this movie is bad, the acting, the plot, the script, the "fauz" location, even though I know why more of the movie didn't take place in New York. Even the ending was terrible.

I can't say that I recommend this movie to anyone. The Friday the 13th buffs may even want to pass on this one.

So far I have been able to "stomach" the prequels and sequels that Friday the 13th has produced. The slasher flick is now at it's lowest peak. The plotline is of course routine....after drowning in Crystal Lake once and for all, Jason is accidentally resurrected by an anchor thrown down by a loveboat! The producers wanted to make a change in this film, they wanted to change the scenery. Camp Crystal, the original setting of all the killings has now become quiet because Jason is on his way to Manhattan! He makes his way onto a ship from the boat he travels on and so slaughters the teenagers on the boat one by one. it is up to those remaining in Manhattan to stop him once and for all. Terrible plot, poor acting, and a boring film overall. Do not invest your money in renting or buying this video whatsoever!
