There is something about this campy interstellar romp's simple pleasures. Keeps you watching and chuckling, even if it is, objectively, shit. It's got a cheap, Carpenter-esque feel, and it doesn't take itself the least bit seriously. Inventive kills aplenty, some cool visuals, and a cast that -- while incapable of acting (besides a committed Lexa Doig) -- is easy on the eyes.
A certified guilty pleasure, and one of the better sequels in the Friday The 13th stable. Despite some of its clunkiness due to bad acting & budget restraints, I actually had a lot more fun than I ever expected to. Uber Jason was great, the kills are surprisingly inventive & both Lisa Ryder and Peter Mensah are fantastic in their respected roles. Cronenberg's cameo & the sleeping bag kill homage was great too.
