Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: The scene of two thugs kidnapping, drugging, and attempting to rape Rennie is far more disturbing than Jason's undead killing spree throughout the rest of the film.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: Jason has this reaction to Julius boxing with him.

* FlatCharacter: One of the teen boys, Miles, who doesn't get a single shred of characterization before he's killed by Jason. He didn't even get to speak a single line in the whole movie.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: After Miles realizes he simply can't take on Jason by himself, he decides to flee... up a mast, where he clearly can't go anywhere else but back down, as Jason proves by following him up and flinging him down to his death.

** In the scene where we see the few students left being taken to the dining hall, Jason is shown peeking in at them through a window. It's likely that small group was killed by Jason offscreen, but nothing is ever mentioned about all the other students left in the ship.

For years the specter of Jason Voorhees has been hEaunting Camp Crystal Lake, stalking and killing horny teenagers just like his dear old momma taught him. However, for the last year, Jason has been hanging out at the bottom of Crystal Lake itself, what with being pinned under a collapsed dock there, and is now in the mood for a vacation after being awakened by a couple of teenagers on a pleasure boat frantically screwing (whom he then kills). So where does an undead serial killer go to unwind where he can just be himself?

[[BigApplesauce New York City]], of course.

For years the specter of Jason Voorhees has been hEaunting Camp spent years haunting Crystal Lake, Lake and the camp that bears its name, stalking and killing horny teenagers just like anyone who finds themselves unlucky enough to get in his dear old momma taught him. However, for way. For the last year, however, Jason has been had to suffer the indignity of hanging out at the bottom of Crystal Lake itself, what with being pinned [[Film/FridayThe13thPartVIITheNewBlood someone pinning him under a collapsed dock there, and is now in the mood for all]].

Lady Luck has
a vacation after being awakened by a sick sense of humor, though. A couple of teenagers on a pleasure boat frantically screwing (whom accidentally revive Jason, who climbs aboard the boat and kills the both of them. The next morning, a much larger boat docks at Crystal Lake, ready to take several teens and their chaperones on a post-graduation trip. Jason manages to sneak aboard the ship as it departs, and he then kills). So where does an undead serial killer go eventually starts killing teens and crew alike. But when this boat arrives at its final destination (one way or another), Jason will have to unwind where contend with something for which even he can just be himself?

is unprepared: [[BigApplesauce New York City]], of course.City]].

!! Jason took these tropes to Manhattan with him, so watch your step:



* ApatheticCitizens: Apparently New York City. Rennie and Shawn are chased down busy streets, into diners, and a packed subway car by Jason, and ''nobody'' around them gives it a second thought. More poignantly, when they pull the emergency stop on the subway while they're being obviously stalked by Jason, all of the passengers start loudly complaining about the fact they'll be late. Then there's this gem:

** This has more to do with the film's budget: as said budget shrank, filming in New York became prohibitively expensive, which necessitated both the need to film "New York" scenes in Vancouver and spend more time on the ''Lazarus''.
*** As many have pointed out, the film doesn't actually ''get'' to New York until the last act.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Sort of. The movie was scripted to have more scenes at well-known New York landmarks including Madison Square Garden and the Brooklyn Bridge, but the budget given by the studio only allowed for two days of filming in New York itself. The only recognizable New York site Jason appears at is Times Square, with most of the city scenes shot instead in budget-friendly Vancouver. Even then, failing to truly live up to its own big selling point is ''far'' from the only reason this film has its reputation for suffering a bad case of Sequilitis.
