Two of the cornier "Friday the 13th" entries. I'm going with Part VIII since, you know, Jason's not in a spaceship.

Like everyone points out, Jason X is self-aware. But when you're a self-aware bad movie, you have to succeed in other ways, just being a bad movie isn't enough. So the unintentionally bad movie wins.

'Jason Takes the Love Boat' for me too.

Two-thirds of the Kane Hodder Trilogy of Suck. Fuck the both of them, I don't have to pick.

Both are pretty blah. I'll go with Jason X for being the more entertaining film and having the tiny bit more likeable characters. Part 8 is my least favorite of the whole franchise, I think. I still have to check out FvJ and the remake, though.

Jason X looks like it was made for $10. Both are above average....but VIII wins.

Both terrible but X is better. It has the frozen head kill.

I prefer Jason in Manhattan I like the Deaths more and setting!

Interesting enough. After 8, there are only 2 movies in 12 years. New studio changed the feel of the series. I would take Freddy V Jason or the 2009 Reboot over both. Friday 8 wins.
