YMMV / Jason X

  • Angst? What Angst?: Rowan has been in cryostasis for over 400 years and takes it really well, even though everything in her past life is now completely gone.
  • Awesome Music: "X is the Loneliest Number", the end credits theme.
  • Contested Sequel: Probably more than any other Friday the 13th film. Either it's the absolute worst film in the entire series for abandoning any attempt to be serious and just going for the absolute craziness of Jason in space... or it's one of the better entries for exactly the same reason.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: For Kane Hodder. Put aside how the film was received for a moment...for many fans, Hodder IS Jason Voorhees. How cool is it that Hodder, in his last performance (to date) as Jason, gets top billing in the cast list?
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Janessa certainly has her fanbase. Yes Janessa, we do want you!
    • Brodski as well. He refuses to die, to the point that he manages to kill Jason for good.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Rowan's attitude of not showing any concern from being in cryostatis for over 400 years can be justified as being in shock. She's certainly stunned by the news, and then Jason takes her mind off it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • People in bug-eyed masks and long red coats scavenging a dead planet is rather amusing after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy.
    • Jason would later show up as a DLC character in Mortal Kombat X, making this not the last time showed up in the tenth installment of a work with X in the title.
  • I Am Not Shazam: Jason X refers to the fact that this is the tenth Friday the 13th film. Jason's cyborg form is actually called Uber Jason. Jason vs. Jason X comic threw this out of the window for the sake of name recognition.
  • It Was His Sled: Jason turning into a cyborg was originally supposed to be a surprise, but the marketing of the film went out of its way to spoil that twist.
  • Narm Charm: Intentional with Jason dealing with the virtual girls. When he's killing them by swinging them around in sleeping bags, all you hear from them is "Ow! Ow! Ow!"
  • Nightmare Fuel: Kay-Em's Slasher Smile after she's upgraded to fight Jason. She's having fun.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Unlike the the more grounded previous films (well, as "grounded" as you can get with a zombie demon killer), Jason is now in space! What's not to love?
  • Special Effects Failure: Janessa is killed when she is sucked out an airlock through a grate. It happens off-screen, but there is no sound effect, and the Gory Discretion Shot is so quick, you might actually miss what happened.
  • Squick: The freezing of the female scientist's face and then having Jason SMASH it to pieces is very sickening.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The opening credits, which take place inside Jason's body and bloodstream.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The sequel novel Death Moon. The author has a habit of going on nonsensical rants that have nothing to do with what little story there is. There's one part that's just pages and pages talking about nothing but Bride of Frankenstein star Elsa Lanchester in a disjointed fashion...
