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.

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.

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.

In 1989, the last year was here for the greatest horror decade ever! After '89, we got breif glimpses of Freddy, Jason, Michael Myers and Leatherface in the '90s. As a matter of fact, Jason himself, only got 1 '90s flick under his belt, " Jason Goes To Hell : The Final Friday. " But I have this great feeling the '00s of the 21st Century will bring back the '70s and '80s masters of the silver scream! Well, in '89, we got " Leatherface : The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 ", " A Nightmare On Elm Street 5 : The Dream Child ", " Halloween 5 : The Revenge Of Michael Myers " and " Friday the 13th Part VIII : Jason Takes Manhattan. "
In Jason's 8th, he left for the wilderness to take a litte vacation to New York City! Many fans dislike this entry, seeing how most of the film takes place on the trip to New York, rather than the Big Apple itself. But I love this film, Jason looks really cool, and of course Kane Hodder returned from Part VII, to portray Mr. Voorhees. He's also returning once again to play Jason in the upcoming, highly-awaited Jason X. There's little gore here, and the nudity is very quick ( Jason throws the nude blonde against a mirror, we get to see some of her before she crashes into the mirror.) Still all of the installments in this series are great!

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.

This has got to be the worst film ever made in the history of film. How this guy was given the green light to make this movie, I'll never understand. This is an Alan Smithee case if I ever saw one. But, ironically, I find this one of the most enjoyable in the series because of this. Being that this movie is so rotten, it's one of the most amusing and hilarious films I have ever seen. It is the perfect Mystery Science Theater party movie. Jason is(naturally) brought back to life(by electricity again. Who thought of this juvenile idea anyway? What is he, Frankenstein's monster?), and slaughters everyone on the boat. He may have been on the boat only an hour or two, but he knows the layout better than everyone else. He manages to teleport himself everywhere. He's huge, black, slimy, wears a hockey mask(not exactly a low profile), and manages to stroll about the ship without anyone noticing him. When they get to the Big Apple, does Jason go beserk and murder everyone? Nope, for some unknown reason he only goes after the surviving crew members who can't seem to shake Jason even in a city the size of New York(all you'd need to do is get in a cab and say "take me to the other side of town", and you'd lose Jason forever.). Of course they all roam about the alleys and side streets instead of staying out in the open. Jason also knows the layout of New York City as though he were a native. And what's with this stupid psychic link between the leading lady and Jason? Ever notice when a horror series goes on for awhile, they throw that stupid, unscary psychic angle in? Halloween 5 for example. The most unbelievable thing in this movie is when the two survivors run into the sewer. If you were being chased by Jason, would you run to a friggin' sewer?Read more ›
