Jason X conjures up more giggles than scares, assuming you make it through the first 15 minutes.

The gore comes with brutal regularity, so that, despite Farmer and Isaac's attempts to liven things up, the film still just wears you down.

Everything else Jason X tries to do has been done too, and generally a lot better.

The supposedly new, improved, futuristic Jason is just the same guy with a hipper hockey mask. Thumbs down.

A protracted and only sporadically imaginative menu of ways to be murdered.

Jason gets a futuristic makeover and annihilates someone using a giant screwing tool. After sitting through Jason's latest exploits, the audience may find itself identifying with that victim in particular.

The 10th installment of the Friday the 13th franchise is, hands down, the worst of the worst.

The premise of Jason X is silly but strangely believable.

A low-rent retread of the Alien pictures.

The movie is concocted and carried out by folks worthy of scorn, and the nicest thing I can say is that I can't remember a single name responsible for it.

As we have come to learn -- as many times as we have fingers to count on -- Jason is a killer who doesn't know the meaning of the word 'quit.' The filmmakers might want to look it up.

Even the imaginative gore can't hide the musty scent of Todd Farmer's screenplay, which is a simple retread of the 1979 Alien, with a plucky heroine battling a monster loose in a spaceship.

Very little suspense.

The acting rarely surpasses the occasional sexy hair-toss.

If you're a fan of the Friday the 13th series, its 10th and latest entry, Jason X, should not disappoint.

A long way from high art. Or even high schlock.

May offend viewers not amused by the sick sense of humor.

Expect the same-old, lame-old slasher nonsense, just with different scenery.

It's a fanboy 'what if?' brought to life on the big screen.

It will come as no surprise that the movie isn't scary. But here's the real damn: It isn't funny, either.
