Jason X (2002)

Our review of the tenth film to star Jason Voorhees…no longer allowed to call itself “Friday the 13th” because that title’s original owners were being babies about it at the time. IN SPAAAACE!

  1. I remember reading an issue of Fangoria, a long time ago, that one of the potential scripts for Halloween 6 had Michael Myers in space. Moustapha Akkad threw it across his office when he read it. And I’ve always wondered…

    1. I think we all have at one time or another. But at this point, having tried everything else (including Zombie…twice), they might as well try it…IN SPACE. Hell, I remember reading a spec script for Freddy vs. Jason from The Year 2000 that featured a straight-up, unapologetic Michael Myers cameo. In the opening scene! Can you say, “sequel bait”? Or maybe “21st Century House of Frankenstein”? I certainly did. Then again, what’s the point of New Line buying up all these properties if they don’t plan to mash them all together? (Oh, that’s right: the point is $$$$)

      1. Ya know, if they did a huge mash-up with them all, and they did it more in the spirit of Monster Squad and less in the spirit of House of Frankenstein, I’d go see that.

    1. I was going to call it “my favorite second season episode”…but looking over the list, with episodes like “The Widening Gyre”, “The Prince,” “Ouroboros”, “Belly of the Beast”, and “Pitiless as the Sun” (a.k.a. “The one that guest-stars Cancer Man, from The X-Files“) I see I can’t even do that and maintain my intellectual honesty. So let’s call it my…seventh favorite second season episode and leave myself some wiggle room.
