Trivia / Jason X

  • Casting Gag: Lexa Doig was an android while Lisa Ryder was a human in Andromeda. The reverse is true in this film.
  • Enforced Method Acting: When Stoney is killed, his blood splatters on Kinsa and she screams. The scream is genuine, as the fake blood burned her actress's eyes.
  • Franchise Killer: Pretty much put a death nail in an already near dead franchise. So much so that, despite the following year's Freddy vs. Jason being a box-office hit, the series needed a total reboot to start up again.
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: The movie was finished in 2000, but wasn't released in the United States until 2002 due to a management shakeup at New Line Cinema.
  • Troubled Production: During production, writer Todd Farmer and director Jim Isaac did not get along at all. The film saw constant, heavy rewrites during production that required Farmer to be on set at all times; by his account, the entire crew hated him. Of particular note was tension over the film's tone, with Farmer's version being more serious and Isaac's being a lot goofier. On the commentary track for the film, they barely try to hide their enmity for one another, the two frequently taking potshots at each other.
  • What Could Have Been: Pamela Voorhees was supposed to have a short appearence in the virtual reality segment. In it, Jason, now Uber Jason, was supposed to attack Pamela's holographic form just to prove how evil he has finally become. Betsy Palmer was contacted about doing the scene, but she declined and the whole thing was ultimately left out.
