Jason has once again woken from his wet grave. He’s getting on a boat shipping teenagers and teachers from Crystal Lake to New York. And he’s eager to kill every one of them.

Oh, no! This was a poor effort. There where little to enjoy in this eight chapter. Poor script, poor acting, poor directing. And the scares are a bore. And there’s to little detailed set-piece killings. I want gruesome, bloody murders. It’s a slasher for God’s sake! Jason is sneaking around too much. He should just bash his way. He should’ve taken his victims down as a plague of fucking zombies. It was a change of scenery thank God, and it’s still Jason, and it’s still a b-movie rating.

The complete Friday the 13th box is just GREAT! You have audio commentaries, featurettes, interviews, shorts, booklet and merchandise. Whatever you want to know, you’ll get to know.
