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.
So what's worth buying this one for? Two things. First, it includes the legendary "gag" clips in which Kane Hodder is shown menacing a young lovely not with a machete or a harpoon, but with a large, um, strap-on, as well as the scene in which V.C. Dupree in the lifeboat grabs an oar, takes a big tug at it -- and propels himself head-first into the bilge. This gag reel has been a rumor among F-13 fans for years, and it was nice to finally see it. Secondly, the movie is actually better if you see it, not in the original cut, but in the version that has voice-over commentary.Read more ›

The ending wasn't up to par and they spent too much time on the boat but it was a F13 so it couldn't be all that bad.Published 4 months ago by Damon Shea
