The film is popular enough to become a franchise and spawn several sequels of varying quality and generally inferior to the one that started it all off.'Jason Takes Manhattan', the seventh sequ... read more

"13.10. SkyShowtime Hihi, perjantai 13. ja vielä yksi Perjantai 13. saatavilla. Voi juku, mikä perjantai 13. Otsikko lupaa Jasonin ottavan Manhattanin, oletettavasti väkisin, mutta poukkoilee jollain abiristeilyllä tunnin verran välillä ilmestyen aivan tyhjästä sopivasti tappamaan jonkun. Kylähullu-Ralphin korvike Kukalie on vakuuttunt Jasonin olevan laivalla, muuten ei katsojakaan tietäisi tätä. New Yorkiin jotenkin päästyämme ei vieläkään lunasteta mitään odotuksia mistää"

'Friday the 13th' hits the Big Apple

“'Friday the 13th' may have been panned by critics when first released but since then it is one of the most famous and influential horror films, the franchise containing one of horror's most iconic villains. The film is popular enough to become a franchise and spawn several sequels of varying quality and generally inferior to the one that started it all off.'Jason Takes Manhattan', the seventh sequel and the eight film in the series, is one of the lowest rated 'Friday the 13th' films on IMDb. Apart from a couple of interest points, personally have to agree with those who consider 'Jason Takes Manhattan' one of the series' weakest (whether it's the very worst is debatable). It's not terrible and not quite as bad as some have said, but it is lacking in a lot of areas.There are merits here. Wh” read more

"First viewing - Jan. 27th Paramount+ Voorhees Thursdays More like Jason takes a slow boat to Manhattan. I know this film is generally considered a weak entry in the franchise, & that's not wrong but I did have more fun with this one than 5 & 7. It's pretty stupid, but the ludicrous plot allowed me to cut them some slack. Suddenly Jason is a ninja or something, constantly popping up ahead of his victims despite never running, which had me chuckling. Kind of an odd choice to not let him go bonke"

" Date: 1/13/2021 Viewed: Blu-Ray (Scream Factory) Re-Watch Note: I have looked forward to revisiting this Friday the 13th movie because I remember never liking it when I was younger. As both a kid and teenager, I dislike this movie for not fully taking place in New York City. After revisiting this movie again, it's not that bad. Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan is in the middle ground of Friday the 13th movies in my opinion. It's not terrible or great, just alright. The movie i"
