This film is a nostalgic romp through horror mythology as the film pulls from vintage Jason films and combines it with new technology. Centuries may have passed, but Jason is still feeding off the delicate blend of lust and fear that emits from the pores of rebellious teenagers. Although he still uses his signature machete to do damage, Jason veers a couple of times from the norm and improvises--with extreme graphic results. And thanks to a malfunctioning regeneration table, a near-dead Jason, with giant chunks of his body blown off by the tech-droid, is put back together with upgrades, and Uber-Jason is born. Now even more indestructible, the cyborg serial killer shows off his newfound strength as he smashes though metal doors to get to the remaining survivors.
With the ending leaning heavily toward another sequel, a new generation of followers will be there when Jason emerges once again. Starring Kane Hodder, Lexa Doig, Peter Mensah and Lisa Ryder. Directed by James Isaac. Written by Todd Farmer. Produced by Noel J. Cunningham. A New Line release. Horror. Rated R for strong horror violence, language and some sexuality. Running time: 93 min
