Let's talk about the legacy that is Jason Takes Manhattan. After seven films all taking place at the same camp, the filmmakers wanted to try something different with Jason. Enter writer-director Rob Hedden. Rather than chasing horny teens through the woods, Jason would now set his sites on the citizens of Manhattan. This should have been fun. Unfortunately, due to budgetary limitations on a decade-old slasher series, most of the action took place on a cruise ship and Vancouver stood in as a Manhattan substitute.

Based On The Essay: 5 Reasons Jason Takes Manhattan Isn't As Bad As You Say It Is by Devin Baldwin
