"There's some fun to be had here, particularly as Jason terrorizes his targets on a late-night subway and none of the passengers bat an eye. The change of scenery alone is enough to liven up a franchise that has spent seven previous films in the woods."
-
Ted Pillow, Arthouse Grindhouse

"'The voyage is doomed,' says a deckhand, and sure enough, Jason's doing his bit for population control in nasty ways that will be familiar to anyone who saw Part 1-7. He's still a tricky devil, moving into the frame just as a victim slips out the other side."
- Richard Harrington, Washington Post

"Kane Hodder returns as Jason, and he succeeds at standing and looking menacing." - The Philly Tofu Massacre

After a shocking return from beyond the grave, the diabolical Jason ships out aboard a teen-filled "love boat" bound for New York, which he soon transforms into the ultimate voyage of the damned. Then one of his terrified victims escapes into the nightmarish maze of Manhattan's subways and sewers, only to confront Jason one final time.
