->''"New York has a new problem."''

The eighth ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' film.

For years the specter of Jason Voorhees has been haunting 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.
----
!!This film contains examples of:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Where the finale happens. Justified in that it ''is'' New York.
* AlliterativeName: J.J. Jarrett and her buddy Wayne Webber.
* 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:
-->'''Sean:''' You don't understand! There's a maniac trying to kill us!
-->'''Waitress:''' Welcome to New York.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite all evidence, Charles adamantly refuses to believe Jason Voorhees is behind everything until Jason comes after him.
* AssholeVictim: Charles is probably the strongest example since his every second on screen seems to be devoted to making you cheer when Jason finally drowns his ass in a barrel of sewage.
** The two Thugs who try to rape Rennie end up getting brutally murdered by Jason. One of them even gets [[HoistbyHisOwnPetard stabbed with the very same needle]] [[KarmicDeath he used to drug Rennie]].
** [[AlphaBitch Tamara]], who had pushed poor Rennie into the water just because she saw her doing drugs {And didn't even rat her out either}, ends up getting stabbed by Jason with several glass shards.
* AttemptedRape: Rennie is drugged by a couple of thugs and would have been raped had Jason, who chased her there, not [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork cleaned house himself]].
* TheBigRottenApple: New York in the 1980s was exactly the sort of wretched hive that Jason could call home.
* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the scenes were actually shot in Vancouver, Canada.
* CameraFiend: Wayne.
* CarFu: Rennie attempts to kill Jason with a police car.
* CityOfWeirdos: Jason is a hulking undead serial killer in a hockey mask, and he ''still'' isn't the weirdest thing in New York.
* ClosedCircle: The cruise ship.
* ContinuityNod: A confusing one, as the mask Jason collects from Jimmy has, for no discernable reason, the same axe gouge the original mask got in ''[[Film/FridayThe13thPartIII Part III]]''.
* ContrivedCoincidence: The events leading up to Jason's revival. Jimmy and Suzie are on a boat in Crystal Lake. Jimmy lowers the anchor, which lands on an underwater powerline. Jason's body is just coincidentally right next to it and the anchor starts rubbing the powerline, electrifying Jason's body and bringing him back alive. Even more coincidentally, Jimmy also just happens to have a hockey mask in his boat for Jason to put on.
* CutPhoneLines: Jason cuts the radio communications from the ship Lazarus. Which is rather knowledgeable from one who has never been near the ocean in his life (or unlife, if you prefer).
* DestinationDefenestration: When Charles attempts to run away from Jason, he teleports ahead of him and throws him through a window.
* {{Determinator}}: Jason, oddly so as he shrugs off all the easy potential victims just to get the remaining protagonists.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While not exactly evil, BetaBitch Eva is clearly uncomfortable with Tamara pushing Rennie off the boat, and stops hanging out with her afterwards. Though Eva does try to find Tamara when everyone is told to get together, and finds her body. And Jason.
* EveryCarIsAPinto: After Rennie crashes the police car, it blows up.
* EvilOverlooker: Jason in the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/9c/Friday8.jpg/220px-Friday8.jpg official movie poster]].
* {{Expy}}: The unnamed deckhand for Crazy Ralph from the first two films.
** Most the cast, actually
---->'''Rennie''': Chris from 3 meets Tina from 7
---->'''Sean''': Nick from 7
---->'''Charles [=McCulloch=]''': Dr. Crews from 7
---->'''Mrs. Van Deusen''' : Amanda from 7
---->'''Tamara''': Melissa from 7
---->'''Wayne''': Eddie from 7
* EyeScream: Jason gets stabbed in the eye with an ink pen (that was allegedly used by Creator/StephenKing) by Rennie.
* FishOutOfWater: Invoked a bit, if only for the premise that Jason, a killer who primarily operated in the woods, is now suddenly wandering in the big city (though the action aboard the cruise ship takes up most of this). The film does at least give a nod of this, mainly in the scene where a confused Jason stares at a billboard displaying a goalie wearing a hockey mask for a few seconds.
* FlareGun: [=McClloch=] grabs a flare gun when he goes looking for the deckhand.
* FountainOfYouth: [[spoiler: Toxic waste in the [[BigApplesauce New York]] sewers does this to Jason... for some reason.]]
* GainaxEnding: [[spoiler: Jason drowns in toxic waste and as it lowers it reveals that Jason has turned into a little boy in swim trunks--apparently his child-self that drowned in Crystal Lake.]]
** [[spoiler: Though given all the hallucinations Rennie has been having of a young Jason, this could have been in her head.]]
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Julius tries to bring Jason down with his fists, [[OffWithHisHead but it doesn't end well.]]
* {{Hallucinations}}: Rennie is haunted by hallucinations of Jason as a child.
* GratuitousRape: Fortunately (sort of) Jason is there to break it up.
* HarpoonGun: However, after being at the bottom of a lake for a year, Jason doesn't have the coordination to properly pull back the rubber band on it. No problem--he stabs a girl with the ''whole harpoon gun''.
* InstrumentOfMurder: Jason bashes J.J.'s head in with her own guitar.
* KarmicDeath: Believe it or not, Jason actually delivers two of them, albeit unknowingly:
** One of the thugs that tried to rape Rennie is stabbed by the same needle that he used to drug her.
** Charles is revealed to have pushed Rennie into Crystal Lake when she was a kid (In a horrible attempt to teach her how to swim), resulting in her nearly drowning. Just seconds after this is revealed, Jason gets back up, chases Charles, and drowns him in a barrel of sewage.
* KickTheDog: Averted. Jason was supposed to kick a barking dog at some point in a film, but Creator/KaneHodder decided it wasn't in his character.
** Which is an example of canonical AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, given it is strongly implied in ''Film/FridayThe13thPart2'' that Jason disemboweled a dog with his bare hands offscreen.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Among Jason's many kills in the film, three of them are two thugs and Charles. Their deaths are brutal, painful, and not particularly quick {except for maybe the 2nd thug}. However, considering that the two thugs tried to rape Rennie, and that Charles was revealed to have nearly drowned Rennie in a half-assed attempt to teach her how to swim, [[AssholeVictim it's hard to feel bad for any of them]].
* LetsSplitUpGang: While the previous films in the series had averted this trope (usually because characters tended to die before they could alert anyone as to Jason's presence), this one embraces it. After the ship's captain is found dead, Julius organizes a hunt-down for Jason, which leads to the death of two other students. Then, when the boat survivors arrive in NYC and Rennie is kidnapped, Charles suggests doing this again to find her, which leads to the death of Julius.
* MirrorScare: Rennie has a hallucination where she sees Jason as a child inside her cabin's mirror just before the real Jason attacks [[DangerousWindows through a window]].
* MuggingTheMonster: Two street toughs confront Jason after he kicks their boom box. He just turns around and lifts his mask at them. The run away at top speed.
* MurderByMistake: After [[BlindWithoutEm losing his glasses]], Wayne shoots the other unnamed shipmate in a fit of panic, thinking he is Jason.
* NewYorkSubway: Jason chases Rennie and Sean into it.
* OffscreenTeleportation: To the point where the only thing that gets in the way of some of the characters' survival is Jason's teleporting escapades.
* OffWithHisHead: Julius's fate, as his boxing match with Jason ends with a him getting decapitated with an uppercut.
* OneSteveLimit: There are two characters with the same first name.
* ThePenIsMightier: Jason gets stabbed in the eye with an ink pen.
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Boxing with Jason is just a bad idea.
* TheQuincyPunk: Jason briefly encounters a group of them during his visit to Manhattan.
* QuizzicalTilt: Jason does it when he sees a hockey billboard which has a mask similar to his.
* ShadowDiscretionShot: The sanitation worker's death.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: Charles is quite literal one in Rennie's flashback.
* SlashedThroat: Jason slashes Capt. Robertson's throat when he is checking out Jim's corpse.
* StaggeredZoom: Used when Rennie decides to ram Jason with police car and we're shown that she's once again seeing a hallucination of younger Jason.
* StealthPun: Jason's first victim on the ''Lazarus'' was killed with an "axe".
* TeleportSpam: Jason spams his teleportation skills to torment Eva before strangling her.
* ThisCannotBe: Charles' reaction when he sees that Jason survived the police car crash.
* TrailersAlwaysLie: The trailer promised mayhem in New York, the ship ''Lazarus'' isn't mentioned at all.
** 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.
* UseYourHead: Jason breaks the window to Rennie's cabin with his head and [[DangerousWindows attacks her]].
* VictoryByEndurance: Jason vs. Julius the boxer.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: When Jason sees the toxic waste flood headed his way, he starts vomiting.
* WalkDontSwim: A deleted scene would have showed Jason doing this.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Established between the captain Robertson and his son Sean in their initial scene. He shows regret over it later on and tells Jim to avoid putting too much pressure on his own son.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There were several other students who were told to wait in the ship's dining hall during Jason's rampage. When they get brought up later, Sean says the restaurant is gone, which implies that when the engines blew up the dining hall was either destroyed in the blast or got submerged first. Either way, those kids are most likely dead since the ship sank.
* WrenchWhack: Jason kills the sanitation worker with [[HoistByHisOwnPetard his own wrench]].
* ZombieGait: Technically Jason has been undead for a long time by now, but he really gets the walk after getting hit in the face with some toxic waste.
