After being resurrected for the eighth time, Jason comes across a boat that is hosting a high school graduation. Our final girl Rennie (Jensen Daggett) begins seeing visions of Jason drowning, which means her sea voyage is about to get a lot bloodier. Jason ends up following them to Manhattan and wreaks havoc in the city, allowing us experience the Big Apple with him. He rides the subway, encounters drug addicts, and even takes a stroll through Times Square. Still, this is an entertaining entry into the franchise due to its change in setting, Jason’s interaction with New York’s populace, and the fact that it features one of the best one-punch death scenes in the series.
