'Jason goes to Hell' isn't really much of a Jason movie, it's not a slasher movie at all. It's actually kinda like invasion of the body snatchers. The plot: Jason's body is destroyed and he begins possessing innocent people to use for a murdering spree, attempting to kill his last remaining ancestors. The storyline is actually very good. It's suspenseful and captivating and what makes this one of the creepiest films in the series. And it was a unique and risky move for a Friday the 13th film. Also the special effects here are great, lots of gory deaths, and cool makeup. The movie is a bit too tongue-in-cheek sometimes but overall it's very good, but not really much of a Jason film. 62/100
A very good horror action film. The plot is enjoyable and has a lot of interesting concepts, such as when they give us a look into how the authorities handled Freddy and Jason. The characters are quite good and the movie makes you root for them pretty well. In all the plot is captivating creative and entertaining. The action in this movie is also pretty great. It's well choreographed and well directed, just a huge amount of fun. And the effects are pretty excellent. I was convinced this was going to be bad like most horror movie crossovers, but it's pretty good. 66/100
Jason X is not very good but it's quite entertaining. This is a pretty fun movie, but it has a lot of issues. Even with the colorful setting, it all feels a bit more generic. I know lots of the Friday the 13th movies follow a pretty basic slasher formula, but the good ones always have something inventive to keep it interesting. In this the characters are a bit bland, and the plot is uninspired feeling copy-pasted from any of a slew of scifi movies like this one, but overall it's still an enjoyable film. It's cheesy and gory and that's all it really tries to be. 44/100
A truly awful movie, by far the worst of the series. The concept sounds pretty sweet, right? Jason on a cruise ship with hundreds of victims in his clutches, while on his way to a murder spree in the big apple. Well they screwed it up pretty horribly. Once the action starts almost everyone on the ship disappears. There's only like twelve (incredibly dull) characters in the movie. The writing isn't nearly as good as in the others. The characters are far more generic than in other installments of the series, the dialog is awful, and the plot is incredibly boring. And to add to the horrible writing, the acting is pretty bad too. The gore is pretty much nonexistent besides a painfully cheesy decapitation scene and the one cool death scene in the movie involving a sauna. Overall the movie feels incredibly censored and goofy. It really gives off a TV movie vibe. What really irks me is that this wasn't to low budget. Compared to other films in the series this one isn't low budget! It's four or five times more expensive than the best Jason films! So this is by far the worst film in the series. Though I do have to say most of the New York part is actually quite enjoyable, the only part of the movie that really shines. 34/100
Some good stuff here, but why would you put a telekinetic in a Jason movie? The plot isn't great. The telekinetic angle isn't done too bad, but it feels like a gimmick, done only to make the 'guy killing horny teenagers' plot feel different. A psychic is out of place in a Friday the 13th movie. On the bright side, I've got to give it to them though, they pulled off the telekinesis thing pretty well with special effects. All of the exploding and levitating objects look pretty impressive for 1988. The stunts are also pretty cool. Also characters are still really fun here, and pretty well acted too. They keep things entertaining. On a side note this one is a bit less tame, but it still has some problems with censorship. This isn't one my favorites of the series but it's a decent sequel. 54/100
