Jason X (2001)

After the good part of a decade away from our screens Jason returned in a all new adventure once more moving out of the normal Jason wakes up from wherever he’s been left and goes on a rampage by Camp Crystal Lake or wherever he’s unfortunately been moved to (which now includes New York) to Jason wakes up on Space ship and causes havoc.

The last Jason film really before the remake in 2009 and one of the least popular by far, not really explaining how he got from hell to a bunker in the first place let alone having to deal with all the space adventures.

Saying that for me Jason X was actually the first Jason movie I saw and therefore stays the definitive Jason movie for me. You can say a bit like Doctor Who and having Your Doctor for me this is My Jason.

Jason Goes to Hell : The Final Friday (1993)

The only outing for Jason in the 90s came in the first film by New Line Cinema who had taken the rights to the Franchise. It was, once more, meant to end the series and set up for something a little different, that something didn’t come till the 00s and after yet another Jason outing but we’ll talk about that later.

After one of the worst Jason movies the whole mythology of Jason was explored (kind of) and a new formula was attempted.

There is a lot to be said for The Final Friday.

Friday the 13th Part 8 : Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)

Our reviews of the Jason films have been a bit cruel so far, we have enjoyed ourselves though regardless.

In 1989 (the year both me and Anna were born) Jason left his normal home of Camp Crystal Lake and found himself taking a boat cruise to Manhattan.

One of the least liked films, it has been critically panned. Right now we all kind of feel like what else could go wrong?

Friday the 13th : The New Blood (1988)

After the critical success of Jason lives it feels strange that it took till 1988 for Jason to return to our screens.

This time we go proper supernatural. I don’t really count zombification supernatural so a psychic is the most supernatural thing so far in Friday Franchise.

It is also the first movie to see Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees. For most this is seen as the movie that created the iconic “definitive” Jason, it just took seven movies (two of which he didn’t actually kill anyone) for that to happen.
