While New Line was still busy locking in a script for FREDDY VS JASON to follow up the ending proposed in JASON GOES TO HELL, they took the next logical step in this tenth installment, and shot the main character into outer space. Unable to kill him using any normal means, Earth's lead scientists decide to cryogenically freeze Jason Voorhees in order to end his violent killing spree. Nearly five-centuries later, when all other life on Earth has been destroyed, a student research vessel that is surveying the planet in search of lost artifacts uncovers the body, and brings it aboard their ship. Unfortunately for them, the smell of teenage lust and unsuspecting female victims re-animates him during the thawing process, and he returns to work aboard The Grendel! JASON X shares most in common with FRIDAY THE 13TH, PART VI in its light tone and silly humor. The audience is clearly intended to champion their Slasher "hero" in this film, and it pays off! Not only do the deaths come fast and furious, but it offers some of the most inventive kills in the series. Jason tops out at a staggering body count of twenty-eight people, excluding the thousands killed when The Grendel rams through a giant spaceport. After a near-defeat when battling the crew's android unit, Jason is rebuild using Nano-technology, making him bigger, badder, and stronger than before (but definitely no cooler). Unfortunately, the special effects and computer animation in JASON X are light-years behind the times, but what can one expect in a film with such a ridiculous premise? Stupid and cheesy, yes, but equally bloody and wildly entertaining! JASON X is a guilty pleasure at best, but far from the worst in the series.
