In the year 2455, Old Earth is now a contaminated planet abandoned for centuries--a brown world of violent storms, toxic landmasses and poisonous seas. Yet humans have returned to the deadly place that they once fled, not to live, but to research the ancient, rusting artifacts of the long-gone civilizations. But it's not the harmful environment that could prove fatal to the intrepid, young explorers who have just landed on Old Earth. For them, it's Friday the 13th, and Jason lives!]]>

For those looking for new, creative death scenes, Jason X certainly delivers, with not one scene change leaving you wondering how Jason killed the last victim.
The writing doesn't worry with such matters as "How is Jason back from Hell?" or other trivial thoughts...he's just here, and he's not very happy about it.
From the horror fans, to the "I only watch at Halloween" buyers, Jason X is certainly deserving of ownership, because let's be honest, we all take pleasure in horror movies at one time or another, and this movie is just fun. If it was worth looking up a review on, you have enough interest for this movie to all out entertain you; not to mention there are a healthy amount of bonus features actually worth watching, including a history of the character Jason, and a making of Jason X.
The film beings roughly around 2010 at the Crystal Lake Research Facility where Jason (Kane Hodder, returning to the role for the fourth time and giving what's probably his best turn as the killer) Voorhees has been caught and awaits cryo freeze under the supervision of Rowan (Lexa Doig). During one of the film's best sequences (with an amusing cemeo from director David Cronenberg), Jason is freed and several bloody deaths later, he's stalking sole survivor Rowan through the facility where she outsmarts the hulking madman and traps him in a cryo freeze chamber, only to be accidentally trapped herself.
It's here that the film jumps 400 years into the future, a group
of science students on a research field trip back to what is now referred to as "old earth" (an uninhabital place) discover both our hero and villian still frozen and well preserved.Read more ›
Well I am happy to say that while it does have its flaws, Jason X doesn't disappoint.
The opening credits start off very creatively(for a Jason movie that is) where we get to see inside Jason's head and get to see his brain and all. Pretty neat stuff, cause I never would of expected it in this movie. After the opening credits we start off at some research place where we get our first glimpse of ole jason where he is all chained up on a harness.(how he got there is beyond me) Scientists are studying him to try to find out what he is all about. From there Jason gets loose and the first killings begin. After a few kills, Jason and a hot girl are cryogenically frozen together only to be unfrozen 100s of years later and then the real carnage begins!!
Well, I can tell you that for a relatively low budget movie this baby looks pretty good. The set designs and space ship all look top notch. You'll be surprised you aren't watching James Camerons Aliens or something-they're that good.
As for the acting, well this is a Friday the 13th movie. So you cant expect anything top notch. Its not awful, (actually its probably the best in a while) but its nothing special. The teens are basically just as dumb as ever and you'll know who's gonna be killed. All they think about is sex,sex, and more sex. There are some very hot chicks in this movie, most notably, the lead female. Kane Hodder on the other hand is in fine form here. He does Jason better than anyone, and he just has this role down perfect.Read more ›

Absolutely, I second the request! There is a German release of Jason X combined with Jason Goes to Hell, but it has limited availability and an inflated price to further add insult to injury. Although some of the others titles in the Friday the 13th series are worth a watch, Jason X shines... Read More
