Last Updated on October 9, 2021

It’s widely agreed upon that space is where horror icons go to die. Whether you like or dislike Leprechaun 4: In SpaceHellraiser: Bloodline, or Critters 4, everyone can agree that these entries are not top of their class. Jason X (WATCH IT HEREOWN IT HERE) was explicitly made to keep fan interest in the character during the pre-production woes of Freddy Vs. Jason. But what started as a pitch joke, found footing in what could be accomplished if an unstoppable killer was unleashed in a new environment?  

Jason X was an honest attempt to use the setting of space to push Voorhees into a new and uncharted territory. Marred by meddling producers, budget cuts, and a studio that had lost faith in the product, The team on Jason X tried to do space right when everything else was against them. Join us as we head to the stars and find out What The F*ck Happened To This Horror Movie?

Jason X stars Peter Mensah, Lisa Ryder, Lexa Doig, Chuck Campbell, and Kane Hodder. It’s directed by Jason Issac, written by Todd Farmer, and has the following synopsis:

Jason Voorhees returns with a new look, a new machete, and his same murderous attitude as he is awakened on a spaceship in the 25th century.
