‘Jason X’ (2001) (6/10)

If anything, it feels surprising that Jason X wasn’t written by some sort of computer. It feels like what would happen if you told an A.I. program to make a Friday the 13th sequel… in space. And then the computer burped out a generic slasher movie with a few science-fiction elements and a spaceship setting, instead of the more standard cabin(s) in the woods. One could potentially understand such an A.I. program’s logic, given that one of the greatest horror films of all time – Alien- features a spaceship’s crew getting gradually killed off by a lone antagonist. Unfortunately, Jason X is no Alien, and instead feels like a by-the-numbers, tiring horror movie sequel with an ugly coat of sci-fi-tinged paint spread thinly over it.
