Its a peice of crap, they really got lazy by Part 8 and I feel didn't give a shit anymore. Just made one more movie to squeeze money out of Jason's balls one last time before selling the series to someone else. lol

I actually like this movie, it has some good kills and is a little bit different, I do agree it should of had another name though.........

Post by: Six Feet Under on February 19, 2006, 02:52:50 PM
Yes indeed, he didn't much in manhatten, let alone kill much.
The action was on the boat, so..
Jason floats on a boat and kills heaps of people.
It's not bad, just not great.
But! It has a cool ownage scene, which I am not willing to spoil for those who have not seen this movie, yet....

When they threw in the comic relief scene with him taking off his mask and scaring the people on the streets, it gave me a feeling that they didn't take him to seriously in that movie and it was more of a money movie to see how long the series would go. Overall it wasn't that bad of a movie.  Not one of my favorites to say the least, but it was alright.

Uh huh... introduce yourself first dude and at least give a reason why you didn't think this movie was total balls.

My reasons for hating it (finally saw it last night) are firstly the fact that he just appears in places, that is not logically possible due to time. Secondly, that chick’s vision’s where Jason does not appear that deformed. Thirdly, the fact that Jason stalled with a lot of kills. Fourthly, the terrible connection to JGTH (I mean come on, the fucking mask was melted off his face and Jason was supposed to have turned back into a boy... wtf?!?!?!). Fifthly, Jason's behaviour around the normal citizens and why the fuck did he take his mask off to a couple of street thugs to scare them away?

Post by: Kat on May 23, 2006, 02:19:48 PM
This was...a bad movie.

Jason isn't Jason. They took him to NY if only for the ending of the film, it was still stupid.

The whole boat idea isn't too too bad, but its still bad. I understand they were just trying for something different.

The ending is stupid and confusing. If you want to try to explain it away I know many have and ...well it helps, but the truth is they just fucked up big time.

Jason now seems to teleport, and yes the whole interaction with normal people on the streets of NY showing them his face is silly. It was okay for 1 good laugh, but its dumb

Post by: Maniac on May 23, 2006, 02:28:25 PM
Should've been called Jason Takes Vancouver because pretty much the entire movie was shot there with the very few scenes inside New York City.

In all honesty I liked it, except for the flashbacks and the terrible ending. I know alot say that we are seeing Jason the way Rennie see's him but I don't think so, they just messed up big time.

Agree with JF on that. They did not even try with this movie.  And Hell Jason Goes to Hell is 100% better then JTM and it was New Line that made JGTH

You know I have decided that this movie deserves a proper rant and now that Kat's got me doing this whole monthly rant thing on horror based things, guess what I've chosen as the number one crock of bullshit for me to rant about. That’s right, in a couple of days you'll see a proper rant on JTM done by yours truly… The Kurgan!


Title: Re: jason take manhattan?
Post by: The_Empress on May 28, 2006, 09:18:03 PM
Well it wasn't as bad as Jason X, that's all I can say.

It had a few funny parts, with the punks on the street and the decapitation of the guy on the roof. The ending was terrible though - toxic waste flooding the sewers, wtf was that? That wasn't even remotely realistic.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: The Kurgan on May 28, 2006, 09:24:00 PM
Sorry but it was NOT better than Jason X, in fact I am not even going to rant here because I've already made one up. I am just going to say that eventually I will rant about Jason X and it still won't get half the fucking criticism I put into JTM.


Title: Re: jason take manhattan?
Post by: The_Empress on May 28, 2006, 10:48:32 PM
Well, your opinion may be that it was not better than Jason X. In my opinion it was. In my opinion, Jason X was the worst of the all the F13 movies, but that's for another thread.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: The Kurgan on May 29, 2006, 10:31:07 AM
Sure thing... still though Jason X had more logic in it than JTM and Jason X still sucked.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Maniac on May 29, 2006, 10:53:44 AM
I agree with The_Empress, Jason X was a terrible film and comes nowhere close to being better than JTM. First of all talk about logic, taking Jason to New York City has alot more logic then sending him into space and tranforming him into this super killer. JTM also has that feel of a Friday film, it is not the best one by all means but Jason X and all the sequels pumped out by New Line lost that "Friday" feel if you will and don't come close to capturing that campy feeling as Paramount's versions did.

IMO the only thing that stopped Jason X from being totally a waste of time was Kane Hodder as Jason and the Liquid Nitrogen face smash, other then that it had a terrible plot, severely annoying characters except for Sgt. Brodski and Jason, some of the worst FX I've ever seen and I'm not talking about the deaths but the scenes outside the spacecraft, even that retro virtual trip back to Crystal Lake sucked although it was a nice attempt to capture that "Friday" Feel, anyway this is just my opinion, I look forward to reading your review of both whenever they are posted.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: The Kurgan on May 29, 2006, 11:03:33 AM
Come on, at least in Jason X, Jason still acted like Jason. The feel of Friday the 13th was dead, I can agree on that, however I didn't seen any hell-baby running up some dead chick’s vagina, nor did I see any teleportation.

The futuristic side sucked balls I know, but toxic waste turning Jason into a kid was just fucked in a whole new way.

There isn't many fuck up's I haven't pointed out and I did try to make it as humorous as possible. It’s more of a rant than a review >.>

See I am gonna be doing this horror movie rant thing monthly now. After JTM I am gonna bitch about JGTH and then I think smack around Jason X... then from there I'll leave Jason alone and probably bitch slap some other franchise or something that isn't a horror movie but horror related. Should be easy for the first year ^.^


Title: PART VIII Question
Post by: ProwlerChad on June 17, 2006, 10:17:15 AM
I watched Parts I thru VIII last week, and after several years of not seeing VIII, I still wonder: How did the boat go from the lake to the ocean? Or did I miss something? Crystal Lake is a circular lake that is its own body of water. Or did Jason just end up at the shore where the ship was docked?


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Kat on June 17, 2006, 10:26:24 AM
Well we obviously see the boat that the kids murdered on floating by the bigger boat on the ocean. So basically it was their fuck up.

The writers probably thought "they've never seen the entire lake, so why not make it open to the ocean"


Title: Re: PART VIII Question
Post by: ProwlerChad on June 17, 2006, 10:50:58 AM
I thought that the deck hand just saw that other boat as a "vision".  I dunno.............


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Kat on June 18, 2006, 11:10:05 AM
No, because Jason was still on that boat...so thats how he got to the ocean, because crystal lake now opens to the ocean, the boat floated there.....and so did jason.

I don't think it was a vision

Post by: overshoe on June 24, 2006, 05:13:29 PM
Well before I start let me say that although i'm about to find fault with part 8 there is no blame whatsoever attached to kane hodder.
Kane was faultless throughout. He WAS Jason. In fact if you watch the movie and just focus on hodder’s performance it’s brilliant.
HOWEVER!
The first thing that irritates me about the film is the fact that (up until he appears in front of the police car) the young Jason looks absolutely nothing like the young Jason we have seen in previous films??
The boy that Jason regresses back into at the end of the movie also bears no resemblance to previous boy we have seen?
The mechanical melting head in the sewer is also pathetic!!
Here’s one for you!      How come Jason reels more from the first few punches he gets from the boxer on the roof than he did from the BULLETS he received in a scene a few moments before????
 That roof top boxing scene played like something straight out of a rocky movie??
I know its been said in an earlier post but the’ lifting the mask’ scene needs mentioning again .up until that moment Jason saw young people and killed them , suddenly he’s happy to just to scare them by showing his face ? This doesn’t fit in!
How on earth can this film come straight off the back of the brilliant number 7??
The guys making JTM really let hodder down (who was spot on) .
did they not look back at 7, 4, 3 and 2 before they set out to make this movie?
But before I totally throw it out of my collection I must point out some great bits that save it.
Jason actually becomes the hero (for the 1st time) by saving the heroine from rape. That was great!! My favorite bit And I loved it.
The bit where he jumps out in the sewer onto the sewer guy is breathtaking and let’s just look at the irony in the diner scene.
Hodder actually takes out future Jason Ken Kirzinger ! Brilliant




oh and by the way .  imo jason x eats this movie for breakfast.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: VoorheesLover on March 26, 2007, 12:30:26 PM
I personally wouldn't think that jason would have stayed on the boat the entire night, letting it float out into the ocean....especially when it looked like there was a brand new camp opening. he would have gotten off the darn boat and waited around camp to start killing those people off


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: VoorheesLover on March 26, 2007, 12:36:05 PM
whats with all this weird "’t" text going on here?

anyhow, i can say that jason goes to hell is worse then jason x because at least jason is still jason...i can't really say that for jason takes manhattan because it is still jason. in jason goes to hell its jason body jumping!

part8 is much better then jason x! I agree with that.

I think the ending of pt8 is rennie seeing shit again. i mean she's been seeing little kid jason all over the boat, and we know its just her imagination playing with her, so we can see that the toxic waste at the end messed with her there too...she didn't really see anything other then the hockey mask...but that doesn't explain how jason was jason in jason goes to hell...maybe the toxic waste made him look all bubbly who knows


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Kat on May 03, 2007, 12:12:40 PM
Jason flipping up his mask at the punks on the street? totally not jasonlike! They were poking fun at him and trying to make a funny moment in the film, but it just made Jason more of a joke.

Same goes for the decapitation of Julius & the teleportation...not to mention that Jason is on a boat for most of the movie.

I understand in the long run a lot of the ideas Rob Hedden had weren't possible on the budget they had...well then, maybe they should have renamed the film.

I don't think Jason would have stayed out on the boat that long either...I could be wrong but in the very beginning when the music is playing, don't they say what time it is? I can't recall, that would at least give us some sort of time frame of how long he stayed on the boat.

As for Rennie's "Visions" according to Rob Hedden they are just that, visions that are scaring Rennie...same goes with the ending of the film, he states that he wanted the viewers a little confused...then again, he's stating this years later, so who knows. He also states somewhere  that the scene where Rennie is pulled into the water as a child by child Jason was not her vision but real...now explain that one into the timeline lol


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Zodiac on June 06, 2007, 12:27:19 AM
Actually part 8 is one of my favorites Because of the un-Jason like behavior. The part where he takes his mask off to scare those punks made me laugh. It made me think and wonder if he really isnt as stupid as we all think. I mean really If he would have slaughtered those punks in the middle of the city like that, it would have gathered a lot of attention that was unwanted. I thought it was funny.

It should have been called Jason Takes a Vacation, that is what it was essentially.

The teleporting is an issue for most people. But I enjoyed it. I mean what is scarier than an unstoppable killing monster...one that can teleport and find you where ever you go. It was a nice touch I thought.


Even though this movie was Funny Jason seemed more angry than ever. I mean the kills are just violent. He drowns a guy in a slimy bucket, Tears a kid's head off with a punch..gotta love it.


The Boat did not do much for the isolation factor as the thing seemed to be larger than the titanic...I did like the Disco kill though...the music seemed to get more sinister as it went on and  as he killed..then it just stopped....cool.


Jason seemed to be right at home in NYC. I think he would have liked it there.

Was it just me or did Jason seem like he was constantly soaking wet through out the entire show? The water element had alot to do with this movie to be sure. As for rennie and her visions....This is nothing new in the series, Visions and dream sequences are pretty well known since the very first movie.

As for the ending of the movie....they live in a universe where dead things can come back from the grave and kill hundreds of people....and toxic waste through the sewers seems far fetched to you? If you can accept Jason coming back to life, but not Toxic waste...I cant help you there.



But the pros outweigh the cons for me in this movie.


Speaking of Teleportation. In Jason X when Jason escapes at the very beginning and the soldier gets thrown through the door, and tells Rowan he is sorry...Just how did Jason Get behind her with out her knowing? I mean we didnt see any other doors leading out of the room. And Jason Obviously didnt go through the door the soldier was thrown through, so just how did he get behind her like that? Yeah....Its Teleportation on a limited scale it's gotta be...

according to imdb In the original script, when Jason makes it to the dock, a dog starts barking at him and he kicked it. Kane Hodder, who was playing Jason, felt that kicking the dog was going too far and so the scene was dropped

good call by hodder

Post by: SoulOfVoorhees on July 12, 2007, 09:51:35 AM
Jason Takes Manhattan is mediocre at best, but if fans were willing to be objective about it, a number of the preceding entries were worse by far - the third and fifth films are much worse than the eighth. One has to appreciate the attempt to do something - anything - new with the franchise, and, even if it failed to succeed on all levels, it is still a worthwhile entry (though hardly superior to Jason X, which is an issue for another thread).

Were there insipid elements in this film? Yes, and a lot of them - the ending, Jason not being deformed in the flashbacks as well as his maskless look, etc. - but, taken as a whole, it has enough to it not to be a total waste of time. One just wishes Paramount would have been willing to increase the budget by a few million so that we could have seen the film as it should have been.

As for the teleporting.... it makes sense in-universe, given his supernatural abilities.

The reasons you state that Pt 8 was good in that above paragraph are the reasons I think Part 3 & 5 are good. . . well 5 not "good" but its not horrible either.

I mean, they tried to do something different that wasn't lame. I personally feel that Pt. 5 added to Tommy's story, and helped kick start Pt. 6.

JTM has its moments, but overall is horrible...

I'd say of the original 8 this is definitely the worst, I say this simply because i can't stand the storyline...What I originally understood was that jason kills people that enter camp crystal lake...and it seems stupid that hed randomly get on a boat, go to the dock, and board a random ship, and chase these people all the way to manhattan.

Not quite, it is explained in the film by the deckhand that they were the "last ones" which is why Jason gets on that particular ship. I think as it stands JTM is a pretty poor film but the reason it get's so much grief is because there aren't enough New York scenes so if the film had a bit more of a budget to work with I think the end product would been one of the best.

Because they were the "last ones" not sure what he meant by that, should've been more specific but could either be they were the last teens (highly unlikely) or the last ones who spent time at the camp (possible) in any case that is how it was explained in the movie.

According to the director from the Friday The 13th Boxed Set, Jason Takes Manhattan was supposed to have much much more time in New York. He even planned to shoot a scene in the Statue Of Liberty. He planned to shoot so many scenes in New York but they said that they were not allowed to spend too much time in New York. I can't remember exactly why. Overall, I didn't really like it. IMO, it's a disgrace to the series. Too bad that Kane Hodder acted in the most lousiest films of the series  :sad: Besides The New Blood of course. To be honest, I've never really saw Jason Goes To Hell. I saw a part of it before back when I was younger but I didn't really know what it was at that time. So I can't comment on it lol. Jason X was actually nice. It was actually good. Its the storyline that makes it ugly. Overall I like Jason X.

Post by: Kat on August 13, 2007, 11:38:32 AM
Filming in NY was just too expensive. So it wasn't within the budget. I just don't understand why they kept the same title for the film.

The scene you are talking about with the statue...I'm glad they weren't able to film. He wanted Jason to climb up it like King Kong or some shit.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Warrior1230 on August 14, 2007, 01:34:52 AM
I thought this was the worst Friday the 13th ever made. I plan on never watching this piece of crap film ever again. For one he is only in New York for like 15 min. of the film. The face he has at the end of the film is the worst one ive ever seen. Sure it had some nice kills but that is the only good thing about part 8. Anyways as i said before, i think it sucked balls.


Title: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Herald on September 17, 2007, 01:33:00 PM
After carefully rewatching Part 8 I'm beginning to really like it. I agree with the flaws of the young Jason looking normal, the silly look of Jason unmasked and the teleports he does. It even has the hideous 90's clothes and no nudity, but what makes this movie shine is Kane's portrayal of Jason.
He's constantly growling and breathing and generally looking pissed. In part 2 to 6 Jason is always bumbling around. Kane's Jason never fell over his own feet or get knocked over with a branch.

So in the end Kane makes Part 8 a decent entry.

I appreciate part 8 for what it tried to do.  It was a good concept.  I for one am sick of campers and woods and camp grounds, so yeah changing the setting of the film from Camp Crystal Lake to Manhattan was a god idea.  But the goodness ended there at the idea stage.  The movie's just shit and anyone who says otherwise is only kidding themselves.

Before I saw the movie and just read the title I was thinking the whole thing was going to be taking place in the city, I'm somewhat glad it didn't...That statue of liberty scene I think would've been kind of cheesy.

I thought the movie was blah. I wasnt bad but it wasnt good either. I liked a few of the kills but thats about it. I think they should of continued Jason's rotting, although then he probably would of been a naked skeleton lol. I did kinda like the look though but not his face. I also think they should of set it somewhere else.

Am I the only one who doesn't hate this movie?

The whole Jason on a boat idea was actually a good one. Just imagine yourself running from a very big ship chased by Jason, and you don't know where he is. I found myself entertained in the first hour or so when he was on the boat. The humor works in some part.

My only dislike is that he didn't kill that many people when he was in New York. It could have just end with the boat parts and name it Jason Takes a Cruise. It would be a hell lot better than it is.

Now that would have been a better name....although it would have still been bashed.....for not actually being a cruise.

 I actually like this film and I think it grows on you if you watch it a few times. It tries to do something different and it tries to do something interesting with Jason. It attempts to present him as more human more sympathetic as a frightened child who really just wants his mother.

Rennie Wickham is one of my favourite heroines and I love her hair. In her visions of Jason, Jason almost seems to be attempting to reach out to her, to communicate with her in some way. They have some things in common, they both have a fear of water/drowning. I think the Jason/ Rennie relationship could have been developed further perhaps similar to the Clarice Starling/Hannibal Lecter relationship in Silence of the Lambs.

 And Jason saves her from being raped doesn't he?

I also like Charles McCulloch he reminds me of Bela Lugosi in this film.

There are similarites between his role in this film and that of Dr Crews in Part VII.

He is Rennie's legal guardian. Does he have sexual designs on her?  He's unhappy about her joining the cruise is this because he sees teenaged boys as rivals for Rennie's affections. The scene on the lake where he pushes Rennie into the water in order to make her swim/ overcome her fear of drowning is also similar to the relationship between Dr Crews and Tina in Part VII.

It took me awhile to like JTM,it was one of my least favorite at one time,but i just grew to like it.It had a pretty killer atmosphere and there isn't another one like it,i feel this was the last amazing Friday film before they went off and did the abominable Jason goes to hell.

"Jason Takes Manhattan" is actually one of my favourites, of course it is not as good as the older films, but I still thought it was enjoyable. Come on, you have to admit the part where the "gangsters" start talking rotten to Jason, and he just calmly removes his mask and ultimately, scares them shitless was pretty funny.

This should be in the part 3 section i caught confused for a moment.Part 8 took me a long time to warm up to in all actuality but it's one of my personal favorites now maninly because it was the last of the series where Parmount were involved and the spirit of 80's was sadly,at an end.The ones that came after this are very debatable

Hey guys,  I was just thinking about Part 8.  It's been a while since I have seen it.  Refresh my memory: did Rennie stab Jason with a calligraphy pen when they were on the boat?  If it was a calligraphy pen, that would be kinda cool because I am a professional calligrapher, and it would be nice to know that I can use one of my pens to fight Jason Voorhees!  ::)

i heard he said he realized it was a mistake sending Jason to space !

In "Making Friday the 13th" the authors says Sean Cunningham wanted to put out another Friday film to gear interest towards a Freddy vs Jason film ... and he didn't want to release a movie that would hamper the future F Vs J film in any way. 

The sad thing about the series is that after part 8 no one knew what to do with the series.  Actually, after part 4 every director since then tried too hard to create something different because everyone wanted to get away from the "same basic story", they wanted to reinvent it.  However looking back that was the wrong thing to do, instead of keeping everything coherent they only hurt the series as a whole.  If you watch the films in order, as some kind of marathon you see that 1-4 fit very well together, after that it becomes a mess.  Not that the films after 4 are bad, they just each have their own thing going on. 

While I'm not really looking forward to the remake it will be interesting to see where the remake takes the series.  Will there be sequels?  If so, I'm sure it will go off on it's own without taking 3-10 as any kind of outline.

Post by: SladeCraven on February 04, 2009, 01:39:41 AM
It competes with Jason Goes To Hell as the worst one of the series for me.

The entire teleportation thing is just ridiculous, the acting is miserable, bleh.

I just didn't care for this one at all.

Altough bad acting, being lame, and geneal predictability is common in nearly every Friday the 13th film. Doesn't make them any less loveable though, I must say.

Still one of my favorite series.

How about the bad anamatronic face at the end of the movie? that wasn't a good way to end Jason's reighn of terror......toxic waste? He was at the bottom of a lake for x ammount of years/he has been hit in the head with a hatchet/shot/hung/and chopped to pieces-but he is somehow defeated by toxic waste?! Re-goddamn-diculous! Jason can't die, it's a fact of nature.  Rob Hedden wrote a great movie, and I give it praise, but the continuity with other films was bad, teleportation was bad, and Jason's face (that culdn't possibly get worse from the last entry n the series) was horrible......but all and all, It is a Friday and I like this film regardless of how bad some things were.......not a great fx team. WOW what a rant! Can ou tell I watched it last night? lol

Watched this one  for the first time in over a decade last week, and it still sucks, mainly due to it being cut to shit.
I believe actually, that this was the 3rd time I've watched it all the way through. Once in the theater, once on VHS and this past week on DVD. I knew there was a reason why I didn't watch it. This was the only one my woman hadn't seen, so we popped it in...........

I prefer Part V to this one. To hell with JGTH, X and FVSJ.


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Jameslofton on July 10, 2009, 04:27:09 AM
Not much for me to add as all the bases have been covered, but I do have a few points to make.....


Cant stand the PG vibe of this film. Some rave on the kills, but they're not really that impressive and the overall film just has a "lets make a safe and cuddly film for the young MTV crowd to flock to the theaters to see" vibe and it just ruins it from start to finish. You could place this film between episodes of Sesame Street and not many parents would call in to complain.

The cast is horrific. Whoever thought the woman who played this Rennie character could carry a film needed to be blacklisted. If this was the talent pool they had to work with, they should have pulled a switcheroo and "de-slutted" Kelly Hu and put her in the lead and placed Rennie in Hu's original role.


Just a terrible film through and through.



He is Rennie's legal guardian. Does he have sexual designs on her?  He's unhappy about her joining the cruise is this because he sees teenaged boys as rivals for Rennie's affections.
That's actually a sub plot that should have been expanded upon, but unfortunately for moviegoers that would have required these people using their brain during the making of this tripe.

   JV  "teleports":

1)J.J in the engine room
2) in the dance room with Eva
3) on the ladder with miles
4) upto a 2nd floor building after rennie's uncle....


is there more than that? doesnt matter 4 times is enough  haha



,,,, ms. van dussen  told a  handful of kids( not all of them) to wait in the dining room..... later while they're still on board...she yells out that she has to go get them... and sean says.. "there IS no more dining room".. it flooded when the engine door bursts while sean and rennie are looking for the power room... never caught that before.......



and when did JV learn to read?... we see him look at the fire alarm... how does he know what it is and what it does???...

This entry disappointed in just about every way. It was the first time leaving a FRIDAY movie disappointed. I have seen all the entries in theaters since 1982 & more than once. However, the only reason I saw JTM a second time was to make sure I didn't like it. I actually have the DVD but never watch it. :(

Post by: kingofzombies on August 03, 2009, 09:02:50 PM
I find myself putting it in occasionally. It wasn't a horrible movie. It makes me feel kinda cold when I watch it.......You can feel the early 90's starting to come through in the movie. It also proved even more that by '89 Jason was an Icon (that could make a LOT of money).......I don't now how it would have played out if some more of the original script was used, but I'm sure it would be a better film.  The mask in this film was one of my favorites for some reason. The face at the end of this movie is HORRIBLE! I wish the gore was back in the movie (I would also love to see it unrated).  I can't complain tho......Jason was still badass in this movie (regardless if he could teleport, read, turn into a little boy.....ok, maybe not the last one ^_~ lol).  It could have been a worse movie.  The only real things that bother me about Jason Takes Manhattan are: A) The fact that it isn't really a direct sequel to The New Blood. B) Jason's costume has changed way to much (even if it does look kool)  C) I must say again Jason's face was HORRIBLE! D) The flashbacks of the young Jason could have been used better....case in point, the ENDING!.....or not used at all..

Overall it isn't a bad movie......and for some reason it holds a good place in my heart (maybe it's because it reminds me of the live action Ninja Turtles movies, or just because the film had a very good Director of Photography) I don't know.......

But that's how the King thinks of Jason Takes Manhattan, Like it or not. lol

VIVA LA VOORHEES!

I agree with you, King. For what it was JTM was a cool movie. Kane's performance was bad ass. I have always been a Kane Hodder fan. I thought the mask was okay, but the face did look horrible. I like to think that the look was an immediate result of the toxic waste and not truely the best the make-up effects people could come up with.  :-X

Well compared to some of the earlier installments it wasn't that great but I have a soft spot from JTM and watch it whenever I have a chance. My only beef is that they spent too much time on the cruise ship but other than that it was very entertaining.


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Rich on August 05, 2009, 12:42:13 PM
They didn't have the money to spend too much time in NYC. I loved the shots of him standing in the middle of Times Square though. I also love the boxing match on the roof. Too bad that was originally written to happen in MSG. :'( Jason Takes Manhattan needed a much bigger budget then it had for what Rob wrote to be realized, but Paramount wasn't wiling to give it much more money then any of the others. So, that is why it took place mostly on the ship. Even some of the New York scenes were actually shot in Vancover, Canada just like Freddy vs. Jason.

i still dont know how the hell JV was able to track rennie and the rest after the boat sank... they were SO far from NY... and it seems like JV just walked along the bottom of the ocean and follwed them....cause we all know he cant swim!!!! ;D


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Rich on August 14, 2009, 02:49:06 PM
I'm pretty sure that is what he did. He just followed the boat from the bottom of the water. How he was able to see through those dark waters is another story.  ;D

Withouth thinking too much, just assume he walked on the bottom of the water and followed the boat to New York. I think that is what we were intended to believe. A lot has to be taken for granted while watching these films.  8)

I actually enjoyed Jason Takes Manhattan, it wasn't THAT bad. In some ways it was absolutley terrible, but in some ways I loved it.

The GOODS:
The whole, strange, visions of young Jason.
Kane Hodder's performance

The BADS:
Misleading title.
Less than 30 minutes in Manhattan.

This one was a huge letdown. Even if they had put him in NY it wouldn't of been that good imo. At least it woulda delivered the goods promised by the title tho. Just don't see why they took him outta Crystal Lake, especially if they weren't even gonna do much wit the NY angle. Lone highlight here is the rooftop fight. No other really sweet kills in 8. Backstory of Rennie was way more thorough than the one wit Chris and I still ain't like it much. The thing wit Rennie is all from her end of things, so it's never explained why Jason chose to go up to the ship instead of just goin back into the camp once he's revived. Jason just looks slimy here, as opposed to really zombified in 7 or hardcore, armed badass in 6. His unmasked face looked dumb, and the climax was fuckin weak. And of course Jason starts teleporting here in 8. Was real disappointed wit this one.


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: jasonsfury on October 28, 2009, 11:37:11 AM
I actually did not like the backstory they wrote into the script. Rennie seeing Jason as a kid makes no sense in the timeline of the franchise at all and the Nightmare On Elm STREET visions were horrible. If they took that out of the movie and didn't have Jason scream like a little girl and talk at the end, the movie would have been great.

I thought Kane was awesome. It is really amazing how a lot of fans are hating on him now. I don't get it. Everyone loved the guy when he was the man?

so it's never explained why Jason chose to go up to the ship instead of just goin back into the camp once he's revived.

Good question. You can see behind Jimmy's boat that there IS a new camp there, and its all lit up, as though it was open. So why on earth would Jason NOT go there and kill the people that were there....unless it was just lit up and nobody was there. But how'd Jason know there was a boat filled with Crystal Lake teenagers just waiting for him the next day X amount of miles or whatever away from Camp...off in the ocean LOL

This movie would NOT have been good had they given them a bigger budget. I mean, they wanted to put him on the empire state building, and have a little Jason coming out of big Jason's mouth yelling for mommy. It would have been SO MUCH worse.

On another note....

Camp Crystal Lake is in New Jersey...and they are on a cruise to NY...WHY?? The two states are so close together. I mean, look at a map. There is no way the cruise would be a long one in the first place.

There's nothin they could do to save this one. They'd have to explain Jason's side of the Rennie thing, how he knows she's on the ship, and how he knows WTF she looks like. lol Then there's the whole NY thing. Did he just hold onto the bottom of their boat or some shit? Unlikely he swam the whole way. For these kinds of movies I got no problem acceptin some unrealistic shit, but man they just threw up their hands and said fuck it wit this one homey.

I think that since Rob Hedden has his mind made up to go to Manhattan, they should have given him the budget so he could have had the Madison Square Garden scene. That would have been awesome. If you're going this route in the 8th movie of the franchise, why not go balls out!


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Spectre1428 on January 06, 2010, 10:03:38 AM
I think the problem is that as sequels carry on for some reason instead of branching out they sticked to the same one trick pony and failed to live up to it's name. The same goes with the Elm Street franchise, the possibilities of dream sequences and imaginations are unlimited, but they stuck with half assed visuals and an unfunny Freddy.

There could have been a lot of possibilities for this film or even a completely different route at the time. I think it boils down to the writers, even a fan of the series could create a much better and entertaining film. With that said, unfortunately, this movie does hold some nostalgic value since it was one of the first Friday films I saw when I was young, along with Part 4. It is, what it is I suppose.

I don't know what to think about the boat idea.  I think it is kinda cool, being that they changed everything up and all...but I don't know if it really worked.  I did like the sweet guitar kill though.  Jason doesn't belong anywhere but in the woods...

I am a bigger fan of Jason X then I am of Jason Takes Manhattan. Perhaps if it happened more in New York my opinion would be different. I think Jason Takes Manhattan was a fun and entertaining movie. I think the best shot of the entire movie was when Jason was just standing there in Times Square with the camera moving all around him.

I liked this better when I was younger. I remember buying the vhs at the local video store. I didn't like it that much, and I find it kind of unwatchable now. It was fun as hell to track down all the vhs tapes of the fridays when I was younger. The whole teleport thing pisses me off, and I'm not a fan of Kane. There's too many shots in his fridays of him just standing, breathing really hard, and looking buff.

The film felt rushed. Another year in production wouldn't have hurt. I think the idea for the film was awesome, though. Also, this movie suffered due to budget constraints. A bunch of sequences in New York (Just think of the possibilities: Someone hanging off the Brooklyn Bridge, someone impaled on the pointy crown thingy of the Statue of Liberty, Jason "drowning" in the East River, whatever), a better script, more time and a bigger budget, and this movie could have been really, really special.

God, Paramount really just tried to run this series right into the ground, didn't they.

love the post Batty !!
and the mental image i now have of your suggested impaling scene , is wicked awesome !!

too bad they didn't have a bigger budget to really include New York , but i've read that the movie was already way over , in terms of $$.
IMO the idea for the film was fair , yet they tried to give the impression that the scenery and location would be fantastic and modern , which they couldn't pull off .

this was after all , a F13th horror movie with basically no cash to capture what the title of the film led viewers to imagine they'd see onscreen !

btw ... i still like it as a fan of the series...

The thing is, and this my opinion. By no means is this fact. But it seems to me that Paramount didn't want to really put any money or effort into this franchise. Had New Line taken over before Jason Takes Manhattan, I don't think it would have been so bad. I think Hedden's original view of the film would have seen light because New Line would have put more money into it. I also don't think they'd rush it.

Totally agree with ya there, all though I still think fans would be upset with the movie, cuz we all know that New Line liked to try new things with Jason and the majority of the fans have not been feeling it really. I like the New Line movies, but most people I hear talking about the New Line installments always have something bad to say about em, so if this movie came out through NL, I think I would've liked it and you would, but I also think would talk about it like they do Jason X or JGTH you know what I mean?

Possibly. No, you're right. It's more than a possibility that fans would have turned their backs just because it was in Manhattan, and therefore, different.

However, I for one loved what New Line did.

I like this movie it's pretty good.
But there is an over used shot in the movie.

It always shows the ground and jason walks up and you see his feet then the camera pans up to jason's hockey mask. That shot is used like 50 times in the movie

I don't know why people hate this movie, I personally like it due to Kane Hodder in the role of Jason for the second time. Kane Hodder in TNB was of course better then JTM. But mainly, there are more laughs then scares in this movie. I like it but I think they were trying to spice things up and make the fans know what would happen if Jason was interacting with numerous people.

He doesnt really interact to much though,he stays in the shadows.Once in NY its like the only people that exists are the 2 hes chasing-he could have slaughterd so many other people and just let them go

Anyone catch the deluxe special features?I gives me a totally different perspective and a better respect for what they actually tried to do with this film but it seemed doomed from the get go.I mean why give creative freedom and ok a script thats in NY, if you know the buget isnt going to cover shit and also being neutered by the MPAA.

This is the only entry in the Paramount years that I don't really care for. I agree it doesn't fit to have him in NYC but it's funny because when he's chasing them on the subway and people are just not reacting and sleeping. That's pretty much how people would have reacted, especially in the 80s. Even when he's walking around the city, NYC was, and still can be a times, a circus show that NYer's are just going about their business. No reaction to a walking corpse in a hockey mask! Lol! I do have a problem w/ a location error too, there is no subway exit in the middle of Times Square. I've been to NYC enough times in my 34 years as a New Yorker and can swear to that! >:(

I think maybe they just wanted to put him in a different environment and being that NYC had a pretty high crime rate back then maybe it seemed fitting? I don't know. They've cleaned up ALOT since then though and it's actually one of the safest cities in the nation now believe it or not.

Ok, I will grant you that Rennie, while easy on the eye, was hard on the ears. And I personally liked that they tried something different, I always enjoy a changeup every now and then and admire the directors that are willing to try and throw one. It's easy to stick with what works, but it takes guts to try something different.

And being selective with his killing, too. In every other movie if Jason saw you he killed you. Now, he's focusing on a certain group and ignoring all these people around him, even a group of punks who threatened him with weapons and only got to look at his face. WTF was that?

My father allowed me to watch it on USA when there were F13 marathons on television and it holds a very nostalgic feel for me. What really makes it is a few of the stereotypical characters get killed in the way they lived... Tamara vain bitch cocaine user/shard of glass, Julius confident boxer/head punched off, Wayne suave AV guy/electrocuted, druggie/needle through the back, etc.

If I had this movie to do over, I would probably use Jason as a Venom type of character, an extremely violent anti-hero, maybe taking out some of the scum of the worst parts of New York before returning to Crystal Lake.

Jason is not, and should never be an anti hero.  Yes he was killed because some counselors didn't do their job and he died.  But hr has literally killed over 100 people who had nothing to do with his death.  He is a monster, murdering psychopath, and any attempt to justify him only makes him less scary.

Agreed, he is not an antihero, but he was not killed because counselors did not do their job, not originally. He was autistic and became feral, then a zombie. And that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

That's what they basically did w/ him in FvsJ. He was more the hero and a sympathetic character, a victim so to speak.

I watched pt.8:Jason takes a cruise...(damn I did it again!) Jason takes Manhatten, last night and I swear the more you watch this movie the worse it gets. I just noticed last night that when he throws Wayne onto that circuit board thing that he fucking catches fire before he fucking lands on the fucking thing!!! WTF?! I also won't get into the inaccuracies of Manhatten in the film either! >:(

Jason is not a hero. He a wild fucking beast! I hate what some assholes do to Jason's character! Yeah, every time I watch Jason guest star on the Love Boat, I have to move it down another notch on my favorite to least favorite list. The only one lower is JGTH. Magical mystical dagger, my ass!

Venom killed a lot of people, too, and never truly became an actual "good guy." I think Jason could be used that way, too. But, it would probably have been best if this whole idea had been retooled greatly or skipped altogether.

I am not a HUGE fan of part 8.  It doesn't make sense why Jason would basically only go after the boat people (yeah I know the drug users & a couple others...) There are thousands of people in New York & Jason wastes his time on Rennie & Shawn? I do like how Jason knocks Julius's block off..shows who the true warrior is!  I like Jim & Susie...wish they could've lastest longer...could have killed off the uncle a little sooner though...what a dick! I do still like the movie a little bit, stuck on a boat nowhere to go...probably didn't need to hit New York though.  I think what I do like is SOME of the characters.  A viewer can kinda empathize with Shawn being pushed by his father, Rennie being overprotected by her uncle, Julius and his need to defend himself, Wayne and his lack of self confidence, The prom queen and her overconfidence, etc.

This was...a bad movie.

Jason isn't Jason. They took him to NY if only for the ending of the film, it was still stupid.

The whole boat idea isn't too too bad, but its still bad. I understand they were just trying for something different.

The ending is stupid and confusing. If you want to try to explain it away I know many have and ...well it helps, but the truth is they just fucked up big time.

Jason now seems to teleport, and yes the whole interaction with normal people on the streets of NY showing them his face is silly. It was okay for 1 good laugh, but its dumb
yep

Jason Takes Manhattan was one of the first Friday The 13th films I bought on vhs. I thought the movie was pretty cool and the director's story about how he convinced the actress to do her shower scene makes me laugh everytime. I thought he did a really good job and feel bad the script got changed so much but he did a good job with what he was given. He wanted to do more stuff in NYC but Paramount said they couldnt spend that much.

If you believe the talk , 3/4 of the intended movie was altered due to budget concerns . Not that footage was cut per se , but that certain things weren't even set up or considered because the cost would be prohibitive .

Some of the existing scenes may have been chopped a bit though . I'd have to go back and read through the files .

Oh yeah the majority  was supposed to take place in NYC huh? Rob did a good job with what he had though.

Anyone else think this movie could've gotten a PG-13? Dont mean that in a bad way either. Seems like the scares were more psychological than bloody which isn't necessarily bad. I really think MPAA cracked down on this movie too unfortunately. I like how the movie made me think about what was really happening and Rennie was a great heroine.

They might have been going for that after he was being melted by toxic waste. His face certainly did not have the same effect that his face had in Part 7. I kind of saw his face in Part 8 almost as being a zombie version of the face from Part 3.

What's going to be really cool about that one is the director of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers is going to talk about the movie for the first time ever since distancing himself from the film. I'm sure a lot of you know he was blamed for how bad that movie turned out so he's kept pretty mum on the subject over the years. So I'm looking forward to hearing what his side of the story is.

That will be cool to read . There was/is a lot of confusion surrounding that movie and with the alternate versions . I'm sure the new book will shed some light for some of us .

Yeah, part six of the Halloween series really suffered from people not knowing what kind of movie they wanted to make. And I know one of the producer's had no idea what the hell he was doing. I think Paul Freeman was his name.

Have you seen the Alternate cut of part 6? I like it better in certain parts but the ending was ridiculous! Actually, both endings to that movie were crap but if I had to choose I'd go with the released one where Michael turns on the cultists.  :emomyers: :emomyers: :emomyers:

Yep...I like u. Finally someone who both likes 6 AND prefers the released version to the directors cut. I have the directors cut and it's worse, in my opinion, that what was released. They did the right thing, for sure.

I think the released version, with fewer explanations, is scarier too.

That is quite a funny scene. But as someone from New York (well, I don't live in the city. I live on Long Island but spent much time in Manhattan) I can tell you it was an exaggerated stereotype against New Yorkers. In fact, just about everything in PART 8 when it came to NY was a faux stereotype. People who don't live there or who have never been there just eat that stuff up, but it wasn't really accurate.

Glad to hear you're from NY. And that you also agree it's an exaggeration. But yeah, unfortunately, I do encounter people who've never been there who automatically do assume the worst and probably buy into such stereotypical indifference.

HOWEVER--- like I said at the beginning, it IS a funny moment when the waitress does nothing. So we do agree on that.  :D

I'm from Jersey City. The "New York" in Jason Takes Manhattan is more like Jersey City then it is New York. I like the Times Square shots though. I think that was Rob Heddon's interpretation of NY, definitely not really the way it is.

Post by: aurllcooljay on April 25, 2013, 10:33:08 AM
I'll admit it, part 8 was the only Friday movie I was disappointed in. Just a few good things in there that make it worth watching for the first time, with low expectations of course.

But there two things I wonder if there's any footage of. One is in Times Square every once in a while Kane Hodder would turn his head to face the crowd of people watching him (of course they went crazy). The other is supposedly after several death scenes Kane would do some kind of disco dance to keep the crew happy (according to imdb at least).

They weren't filming during those, but who knows, someone might have had a camera around during those times. Maybe even one of the spectators. If anyone ever meets Kane at a horror convention they can try asking him if he remembers being filmed at those times.

I think jason should steal the drugs from Rennie's captors and start selling that shit on the street.  It could be one hell of an investment opportunity for him.  If they don't pay, he kills.  Nobody will want to touch the slimy sucker anyway.  Jason would also make one hell of a pimp. Nobody is gonna fuck with him!

I hate this one. I can't even bring myself to watch it anymore. The only one I can watch after part 7 (which I don't watch often) is JGTH and that's because it has a soft spot inmy heart as it was the 2nd Jason film I ever saw.

I just couldn't care less about the characters in this one. Jason could've killed them all and I wouldn't have noticed lol

I just watched this one again and I can't bring myself to like it at all. After Jim and Suzie die I just find it horrible.

Being that Part 8 ending with Jason still in NY, I often wonder if he did not maybe have an entire off screen kill spree from NY back to Crystal Lake before the events of JGTH. That might make a cool movie.

That's very likely the case. The guy Jason killed who was working down in the sewers would have been discovered missing, which would have led to an investigation. Jason possibly could have jumped into an investigating officer's body. It would make an interesting movie, that's for sure, but would basically be an extension of JGTH if things actually went like that.

I like this movie too. It has some great moments in it. Kane did an amazing job as the character. It has the classic head punch off, the hot rock, and the punch a mirror to make a knife out of glass scenes. Those are some of my favorite moments in the franchise.

Though I usually do not include this film on the list of classics. I often lump this with the New Line films and only consider the first four to be the true classics.

its pure 80s cheese. Just wish it wasn't so edited or cut back. Barely ANY blood in the movie at that point movie companies were toning down the horror movies because of protest groups. Its NOT my favorite and not even close but it has its place and i love how horrible ken portrays jason in the two scenes hes in this movie. Kane had a day off, and they needed to do a few reshoots and ken was on set as stunt coordinator. So he donned the mask in the scene, where renny is driving the car and has that slow motion hallucination and you see jason thats ken. Then when he gets off the subway train, he walks all flimpsy you can tell its not kane.

It was the first one i owned too. But even after i first saw it, i knew it could of been way better if they actually of did the entire movie in new york... budget wise and all that i know..but still the concept of him in Manhattan just didnt seem like the direction to go. I respect they went in a new direction (considering the next sequel after this is one of my favorites and one of the most hated sequels in all franchises) but...meh its good for what it is.

But Part 8 is still at the bottom of the Paramont series for me. It has yet to grow on me. I mean, I still watch it from time to time because it has good moments... but overall it leaves me wanting something more. Something else. Something... I dunno.

I saw again this film and i must say that, for me, it is the second worst of all, only behind of jgth. There are so many things wrong with this entry:

First the music. Without Harry Manfredini this does not feel like a friday film and the ki ki ma ma sounds a lot different.

So many stupid things: the way Jason is resurrected with electricity under the water, the way he gets the mask, the silly joke hitting the punk's radio, the dog appearing and the end, but the worst part by far is the presence of young Jason. Does not seem like him at all, sometimes even like a regular kid, and the ending is just awful.

The characters are pretty lame, the performances are emotionless and the cast is the worst of all entries. Even the deaths are goreless and without machete, not once.

This movie could be a good movie if the tittle were another but this film is not a good friday film, a lot of elements missing.


Title: Re: Jason Takes Manhattan Discussion
Post by: Austin 3:16 on October 16, 2015, 06:07:12 PM
Yeah the only thing that bothers me is how Young Jason looks. They do all this backstory in the previous movies and in stuff like Freddy Vs Jason and the 2009 reboot about how Jason looks different. In JTM though he looks relatively normal. I guess in one or two scenes involving Rennie's visions, he looks different like the past movies but other than that they just seemed to tone his look down. Other than that I love the movie though.

Cunningham is a definite detriment. It's sad that the original F13 director would be like that rock around Jason's neck in Part 6. But he is. He doesn't REALLY understand what made the movies work. He doesn't get Jason. He just wants his cash cow to keep giving milk. His idea about a "real Crystal Lake" where the movie are fictional is a little too "New Nightmare" for me. And I suspect it'll be more of an anthology series and NOT a true Jason series like, you know, people actually WANT.

I don't understand the whole "melted by sewerage acid, and turns into boy Jason again" thing. Was this a "dream" sequence?  :P And then in JGTH he is just casually walking around. Before blowing up.

Just a convenient plot device lol. And the turning into a little boy thing was symbolic, like she saw that Jason was defeated and what was left is the human side. In reality his decaying body was probably still in the sewer. As for JGTH, I'm at a loss lol.

That's how I always took it. Until I read interviews with the writer/director and he seemed to be saying it really happened! It was his way of concluding the series by bringing Jason full circle. Whaaaaat?! I think I'll just stay with my original idea that it's symbolic and ignore the actual intent. :P

True, although didn't they say the same about Jason coming through the window in 2?

I always felt the ending could've meant different things. If fans left the franchise after it, then he turned back into the little kid for them. If fans kept going like we did, then it was a vision/hallucination and the hockey mask floating meant he would be back.

Rewatching this one tonight with my daughter and had a theory come up while watching.  What if the ship was salvaged after the events of the movie and Wayne's tape was somehow salvaged and that's how the FBI knows about Jason?   

I'll be honest, on rewatching, it's not that bad but it has a soap opera feel to it.

I like that theory of how thats why the FBI knows about Jason. Very smart and i like how it ties in the tape too. Someone had to find it.
