Film #83: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
Plot - Jason torments a senior class trip to Manhattan, then torments Manhattan for five minutes before being killed by the toxic waste that drains every night in the New York City sewers. Awesome.
Form - Stupid with some really cool kills, including a stylish point-of-view guitar to the face.
F/X - Jason one-hit decapitates somebody with a punch.
Acting - Not even funny.
Mise en scene - Not enough spooky artifacts.
Quotables - None that I can recall.
Cool stuff - Jason melting in the New York City toxic sewer sludge would have been a great way to end the series.
