JASON X Trailer Kicks Arse!!!

Hey folks, Harry here... While this isn't the best trailer to pop up online today... that honor goes to King George's Episode 2 trailer.... But this could very well be the most fun trailer to debut online. For the first time I am beginning to understand those early reviews of JASON X which made folks that hated all the other FRIDAY THE 13TH films love this one. The trailer screams FUN at the top of its lungs. I've never been the biggest fan of the FRIDAY THE 13TH films... I always preferred the HALLOWEEN and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series, but this looks like my type of film. Check it out and see if you feel the same....

Harry,

Me again. Juyst thought I'd drop you a line to let you know that the trailer for "Jason X" is finally online !! For god's sake, finally !

Click Here for ch ch ch ch ah ah ah ahhh ah Fun!!!

    Is Jason X related to Malcom X ?

    by Junior D-Girl

    Sounds like a movie Spike Lee should do. Just kidding guys! I know Jason X is really the crazy unstoppable killer from the Friday the 13 Ghosts movies. Gotta go, girl bar awaits! :)

    Wow

    by Darth Melkor

    You know as ridiculous as this looks I can't help but to find it appealing. I think it will be awesome in that From Dusk till Dawn, Army of Darkness kind of way. I had a grin on my face the whole way through it.

    Lexa Doig.... Mmmmm

    by fyrie

    Did you know she loves to play RPGs? I wish I could... umm.. ok on to the trailer. I am not a Jason fan, but this looks like some kick-ass fun. I'll rent it and turn it into a drinking game.

    Where can I find a downloadable version?

    by Voorheath

    This past 24 hours have absolutely kicked ass! First the second Star Wars trailer (which reassures me that AOTC will truly be far superior to TPM) and now Jason X has a trailer aswell. Is there anyone who knows where I can actually download this trailer from. If someone finds a way can they put it on Morpheus or post it on the net somewhere. I hate this streaming video shit

    JASON X - "We didn't land on Crystal Lake! Crystal Lake land

    by TheFoywonder

    I never thought the day would come when a FRIDAY THE 13TH movie would be one of the most anticipated movies in recent years. God, I hope this one is a great big ball of fun! And forget JASON VS. FREDDY! What we really need is WISHMASTER VS. LEPRECHAUN! My money is on the Leprechaun!

    by MineralBlueX

    Sniff. Sniff. Is that cheddar? Swiss? Provolone? I dunno but that trailer was full of some kinda cheese. Wasn't too fond of the "modified" Jason... a lil too Terminator-ish cheesy for me. Then again, I'm just killin time til Freddy vs Jason... :)

  • Nov. 10, 2001, 2:48 a.m. CST

    Cheese?

    by fyrie

    Isn't that the point? I mean, at this point can't we assume it is fun/cheese? Or, is this a serious horror film?

  • Nov. 10, 2001, 3:46 a.m. CST

    Welcome back, Voorhies.

    by Tenguman

    This looks like a really fun movie. I hope the general public doesn't throw this "good cheese" out with the rest of the typical boring "sci-fi cheese" or the repetitive and disappointing "horror cheese" we're fed oh so often. After all, at the very least, the Friday the 13th movies could be counted on for a nice death toll, regardless of whether or not it comes packed with a decent story. Thankfully, the series realized early on that the story was not its strong suit, and that the audience has come to root for Jason... not the retarded camp kids. They're just put out there as fodder... like lambs to the slaughter. And, we take pleasure watching them die, much like the old Roman Gladiator shows. A Guilty Pleasure.

    Like the trailer... but HOW THE HELL DO YOU SAVE THESE THINGS?!?

    by Psyclops

    The trailer is actually pretty cool. It's campy in a sort of 'Bride of Chucky' way, it isn't fooling itself. Anyway, how do you save these trailers with fucking Quicktime 5? I used to be able to extract the movies but now it seems to be unable to play on my hard drive. Anyone?

    by FallenAngel666

    Yeah, that's right, i was one of the lucky ones who've seen this Jason-extravaganza during this years Fantasy-Filmfest in Germany. And believe me - it kicks major ass! The whole crowed dug this movie and cheered throughout the entire film. 'Brilliant' one-liners, dead-on sfx, T&A, great death scenes - all you need in a Jason flic. And yes - it's true to the series. And to those who think the terminator-jason sucks - believe me, when you've seen the movie you will instantly take that back. Trust me! You're up for a rollercoaster ride in Jason-Universe! Greetings, Fallen

    by FallenAngel666

    ahm... sorry, but the girls show their tits. Was it the official released version you saw? If so, I'm sorry, but we (in Germany) were able to see the totally unrated version - uncut and never touched by any censor. But they made it clear that this would be the last time this version would be shown to the public... So the only hope is for an unrated dvd sometime later. Greetings, Fallen

    "He just wants his machette back" ????

    by RobinP

    Best line of dialogue EVER in a Jason movie. Kane Hodder is the biggest, baddest movie heavy of them all. Tremble in fear, Freddy, Michael Myers, Pinhead, Ghostface, Pee Wee Herman and Darth Vader.

    by slz

    F.t13-series are one overrated bunch of stinkers, but their "IMAGE" is flawless. Virgins on the dole, getting fucked by pretty young things, when all of a sudden a maniac called Jason slashes his way through their intestines,leaving them to dry near Camp CRYSTAL JTUHOEZGFKILLLLLLLLLLfF.t13 1.2.3... have some of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre's vulgar/morbid style and mood attatched to their trashy pack. I remember several moments of horror and pain inside my brain, as I've been watching Mr Jason and all his horny sidekicks entertain my lonely soul...... ANyway,watching the Jason X-TRAILER sort of created a warm sensation in my litttle BELLY... Irony and Humor, wether good or bad,is never a dumb trait to give a film like this and they all rock'n roll in deep space. TRE'KOOOOOL!!!!!!! By the way. Give NATALIE PORTMAN the role of Elektra in DaReDeViL. BYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    Bug on Jason X

    by Ambush Bug

    Bring it on! Woo hoo! "He just want's his machete back!" Damn if that wasn't cool. I really can't wait for this one. Jason Voorhees has been my all time favorite from the 80's slasher blitz. Sure Micheal Meyers started it all, but he was just some guy in a jumpsuit out to snuff his sister. Freddy made the slasher pic mainstream, but he turned into nothing more than a burn victim Arnold spouting out unfunny one liners. But Jason beats them all. There's a simplicity to those old films. Jason is unstoppable. He can punch or slice through just about anything. No one's given or taken more abuse than old maggot head. He's tangled with telekinetic chicks and Bernie from Weekend at Bernies and Horshack and Crispin Glover and Kevin Bacon and the chick from Buck Rogers and even Corey Feldman. None of the other slashers have had to deal with powers so great and so evil. The film looks fun. I would rather see a F13 film with a more back to basics feel to it, but I will be seeing this one when it's finally released. I hope this one opens big and stays there for a while so that Freddy vs. Jason can finally be made.

  • Nov. 10, 2001, 10:44 p.m. CST

    Spain

    by FallenAngel666

    Ok, maybe you don't have censors in (congrats!), but I didn't mean that the movie might be cut due to censorship in your country, what i meant was that the studio would cut it BEFORE releasing it worldwide... And by the way, was Perdita Durango released UNCUT in spain? I know there's a longer version than the worldwide release 'cause we saw it at The FFF in Germany too and it is said, that the german video-version is the only video release that is the long cut (which i SLIGHTLY doubt ;) ) Greetings, Fallen

  • Nov. 11, 2001, 10:17 a.m. CST

    Now, do we have a chance to ever get Freddy vs. Jason?

    by Buscemi 01

    This film will be very successfull. I hope they decide to finally make Freddy vs. Jason then. This movie would be fun!

  • Nov. 11, 2001, 10:19 a.m. CST

    Censorship in Spain?

    by cifra2

    Perdita Durango was uncut here (yeah, I live in Spain). So, we have seen uncut versions of "The Idiots", Baise Moi, Original Sin, and many others. No Almodovar film has been cut due to censorship (America saw it rated "X", here it was only "recommended" for 18 and over... that means that teenagers are allowed and nobody was going to ask for their identity card). Spain has delivered since 1978 one of the most free democracies worldwide, but I agree with the other spaniard who posted before that the actual government sucks (it is made of the "children" of Franco's dictatorship, the right wing). Scary. Anyways... Jason X. Funny idea, fun trailer. Maybe I'll give it a chance... but he real movie opening last friday was an spanish film called "Intacto" (Harmless), a very good film that deserves wide audience... it is directed by Academy Award for best Short nominee director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, and despite some flaws, it is interesting in that "Unbreakable" way (no spoiler).

    "What are you high?!"

    by Mr. Sartre

    Maybe the Friday the 13th series is just not my thing, but this movie looks like pure crap. Now I know that the entire space thing did wonders for the "Leprechaun" films and "Hellraiser 4" (sarcasm), but when will we give Jason a rest? This looks like another horror film that is essentially a big budget B-movie. I'd rather be seeing Rob Zombie's throwback to 70s sadism and H.G. Lewis gore, "House of 1,000 Corpses," than this bloated horror franchise that lost its charm when it went 3D. Then again, in horror today the discriminating viewer usually has little choice but to go to cinema's version of Starbucks: franchise studio horror milking the brand name of a movie monster for all its worth. slack

    by Mr. Sartre

    Suggestion taken, though my head wasn't located there this afternoon. To me this trailer just did not kick arse and I was expressing that in whatever way in the last post. I find it odd that a good deal of horror movies in the last few years are basically B-grade potboilers with multi-million dollar budgets aimed at the ever-important teenage demographic. "Jason X" seems like no exception to the current trend. If "Jason X" does fully follow the trend, expect a hip and fresh soundtrack for the film featuring hip and fresh music. Also, my buddies and I are tired of these horror franchises where the quality of the episodes diminishes from movie to movie. No, I'm not expecting this movie to be an intellectually stimulating personal journey, but to me this trailer just seems kitschy and (like the enhanced-Jason) kinda goofy. Hell, shove me in a sleeping bag and slam me into a tree for expecting something to at least be good. slack

    by Everclear75

    I swear that song seems to be all over the place. If I hear anymore psuedo Korn wannabes used in such fine films I just might long for the days when Cinderella ruled the charts..Anyway The movie looks great. On a related note, I was in a costume shop picking a Halloween outfit, when i noticed that for 70 bucks you can buy the Jason X costume. Cool Mask. I'm out like PTA's career.

    No f******way - Just ridiculous

    by Dr_Winston

    How many times can you milk it. You can milk anything if you try hard enough. This is just utter bulls***. Why do they even waist ther time on this garbage. Can't they think of a new scary character. Jason 1 and 2 and even up to 4 was OK. But then it just got lame. And now he's Jason the killer astronaut? Come on. Ohhh Nooo look out! Jason's got a mask upgrade EEERRRRR. Now he's Jason 2.0 - He's gonna kill some pretty girls again. Maybe this one will win an oscar. For the longest running Movie sequels that is. It looks like a cheesy version of "Alien" only with a bunch of kids and of course the big oh scary Jason once again. Oh yeah he was a little boy in Crystal Lake and he killed a bunch of people. But it just wasn't enough, so he went to New York or something and then he jumped on a Spaceship bound for URANUS and along the way finally changed the ol ski mask for some Mr. Roboto helmet. For the love of god, these hash out need to stop. Its not like Jason X is going to compliment Jason 1 or 2.

    by Elgyn6655321

    What`s the problem, you think it`s 'ruining the integrity' of friggin` Jason flicks?!? This is gonna be like "Bride Of Chucky", good cheesy B-fun that KNOWS it`s good cheesy B-fun. If you think it`s dumb, then don`t go see it! This needs to be out now - along with "Bubba HoTep" and "House Of 1000 Corpses". P.S. - yes "Ginger Snaps" is awesome. P.S.S. - Putting Jason in space is a weird idea, yes, but did you know that when John Carpenter was asked to return to the "Halloween" series, he said he only would if he could put Michael Myers in space? The studio thought it sounded crazy (which I guess it does) so Carpenter refused. True story!

    on Michael Meyers making it to space first

    by durhay

    cue spit take! Cut and print!

  • Does it KNOW it's good cheesy B-movie fun that knows it's good cheey B-movie fun? I mean, otherwise we could just wind up with the sort of Scream-cloned humor (CLONES! CLONES! CLONES!-- just kidding) that plagues the rest of the shitty phuquing nonsense out there. And Bride of Chucky was, well, kinda bad. It is one thing to make a movie gross for gross-outs sake (re: Evil Dead)or find really creative ways to do the gore (re: Brain Dead), but Bride of Chucky just wasn't as interesting as I thought it was going to be. The death scenes were forced and really ridiculously improbable. In a way, it seemed like the writers/directors/whoevers thought, "Hey, let's do something neat and creative!" even though they had no idea what that might be. The result was what we saw--mild, tame, and rather constipated. Dumb is dumb, whether it knows it or not, and in every genre there are those who do something new and those who don't. I haven't seen anything more than the trailer for Jason X, but so far I'm not impressed. The one charge I did get from the preview was the whole idea of an upgrade, because Jason was always really incredibly unscary. The days of the slow-walking killer really need to end, if they haven't already.

  • Nov. 15, 2001, 10:38 p.m. CST

    Saw it. Loved it.

    by psiKick

    It's stupid. It's cheesy. It's hysterical and mildly suspenseful. It follows all the traditions of the series and puts it all on a spaceborne science school. It has elements of The Terminator, Aliens, Alien, and of course every Friday the 13th movie. For fans of the genre, there are some truly creative killings and for those who think the genre is played out, there is a lot of self-aware humor. I wouldn't call it the best movie ever made, but it's definitely the best Friday in a long while. Plus, Lexa Doig is tres hot.
