Nolan Barth's rating of the film Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Jason Takes Manhattan is one of the more disappointing entries in the Friday the 13th saga... Simply because they failed to deliver on the premise that the title promised! It really should be titled "Jason Takes Manhattan in the Last 30 minutes", but I guess that wasn't very catchy... Look when Jason eventually gets to NYC this is a fun flick! Jason decapitates a boxer with one punch? That alone deserves a star!
