Popular bogeymen Jason Voorhees terrorizes a group of nubile astronauts five centuries into the future in this sci-fi update of the Friday the 13th franchise. Early in the 21st century, Jason (actor/stunt man Kane Hoddar, filling the role for a fourth time) is experimented upon by army technocrats who hope to turn his supernatural invulnerability into a military application.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Jason X conjures up more giggles than scares, assuming you make it through the first 15 minutes."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"The supposedly new, improved, futuristic Jason is just the same guy with a hipper hockey mask. Thumbs down."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"As far as B-horror movies go with camp, and cheese, this is a good one..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Exuberantly crappy bad fun."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The original films were cheap and nasty, a bit like a venereal disease I suppose."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"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."
‑ Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
"A protracted and only sporadically imaginative menu of ways to be murdered."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Jason follows the ol' tradition of monsters going into space."
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"This film manages the extraordinary, almost mythological feat of surpassing all that came before it to stand proud as the worst of all ten Friday the 13th movies."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"I never saw any of the films between III and IX in the bloated FRIDAY THE 13th series, and JASON X doesn't exactly have me running to the video store to play catch-up."
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"Everything else Jason X tries to do has been done too, and generally a lot better."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Whatever they paid Canadian horror auteur David Cronenberg to appear in this godforsaken mess, it wasn't enough."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"An underdog classic of camp."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"...for what it is and what it sets out to do, it works."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Low rent from frame one."
‑ David Grove, Film Threat
