Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
98 min.
Directed by Rob Hedden.
With Jensen Daggett, Scott Reeves, Peter Mark Richman, Kane Hodder, V.C. Dupree, Barbara Bingham, Sharlene Martin, Martin Cummins.
First stop: Greenwich Village! (Jason wants to go to a cabaret bar, have a little drink, get to know folks...)

Seriously though, he finds himself shocked back to life by electricity in this eighth voyage for the Friday the 13th series.

On a ship bound for the Big Apple, the machete-wielding Mr. Voorhees slices and dices his way through a group of high school students.

This lifeless entry is mostly more of the same, with little gusto either in the undistinguished cast or the death sequences to which they succumb.

Hodder returns for his sophomore turn as killer Jason.

Taxi! Get us outta here!
