"Jason Takes Manhattan"...what a stupid fucking title.

In the opening scene, some lovers on a boat are killed in very boring ways near Camp Crystal Lake.  For whatever reason, Jason decides to go on a road trip down river on the boat before finally sneaking onto a larger boat that's taking some high schoolers on a field trip to NYC.

So for the next 40 minutes or so, Jason kills the people on the boat in standard fashion (axe, harpoon, strangling, glass, sauna rock, electric guitar, etc.) until finally at the 64-minute mark they finally make it to New York.  You would hope at this point the story would pick up, but it doesn't.  It's still boring as Jason stalks these nerds around crappy looking alleys, the docks and a rooftop until the big showdown in the sewer where for whatever reason the sewer is flooded nightly with toxic waste!!!  What the hell?  I'm sure you can guess what happens next...that's right Jason takes one look at that toxic waste and he starts crying like a little bitch.  He even begs for his "Mommy!"  How embarrassing.  Shit like that makes me ashamed to even be a Friday the 13th fan.

Fun for a laugh, but definitely not Jason's finest hour.
