Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
In the Year 2008, Jason Vorhees is cryogenically frozen in a Government Facility in Camp Crystal Lake, along with scientist Rowan. Many centuries later, in the year 2455, Earth is uninhabitable, and humans have moved to another planet known as Earth II. However, a team of students awakens both him and Rowan on a spaceship known as the Grendel. Jason begins killing the students and crew of the ship. Along the way, he is upgraded to Uber Jason. It's now up to Rowan and the surviving students to stop Jason, this time on a spaceship.Written by

(at around 12 mins) When Azrael picks up the frozen coffee cup, it gets stuck to his hand. When he first picks it up, it is attached to his hand straight up and down, but in the next few shots, it is crooked. See more »

Region 1 DVD commentary notes scenes that were edited to avoid an NC-17. The scenes are:
A less bloodier take of Dr. Wimmer's spear through stomach scene.
A very small amount of frames were removed from the shot of Adrienne's head after it was shattered(the bloody stump).
The scene where the Grunt get "screwed" was edited to remove some more footage of his body spinning down the giant screw.
Other than those scenes, all other death scenes are fully uncut, including the Grunt who is disemboweled!
Jason X is an entertaining blend of horror, sci-fi and comedy, though the film doesn't go very far in any of the three categories alone. The best way to view this film is to simply not expect it to deliver anything and just sit back and enjoy it for what it is: a slasher flick! And for being that, it is quite amusing. The comedy in the film does succeed considerably more than other slasher flicks which try to incorporate comedy into the mix. At least I thought so. Really, I just enjoyed this film cuz I had nothing better to do when I watched it and was in the mood for something... well, stupid. That's what it is, and for being stupid, it's fun. Sometimes it's fun to be dumb. 6/10
