Plot Summary:

    In the year 2455, Old Earth is now a contaminated planet abandoned for centuries -- a brown world of violent storms, toxic landmasses and poisonous seas. Yet humans have returned to the deadly place that they once fled, not to live, but to research the ancient, rusting artifacts of the long-gone civilizations. But it's not the harmful environment that could prove fatal to the intrepid, young explorers who have just landed on Old Earth. For them, it's Friday the 13th, and Jason lives!


  • Crystal Lake Campers: We love pre-marital sex!
  • [Rowan meets Kay-Em 14, the crew's technodroid]
    Rowan: Oh, my God. She looks so real.
    Kay-Em 14: I AM real.
  • [Jason approaches Professor Lowe and reaches out for a machete sitting next to him]
    Professor Lowe: [scared] Oh, you want your machete!
    Professor Lowe: [laughs it off] S**t, it's yours! Take it! Just remember who got it back for ya...
    [Jason stares at him]
    Professor Lowe: [calling out] Guys, it's okay! He just wanted his machete back!
  • Rowan: I don't think he's out there...
    Janessa: Why don't you just stick your head out and have a peek?
  • Kay-Em 14: [to Jason] Afraid I'm gonna have to hurt you now.


  • The spaceship in the movie is called "Grendel", named after the villain in the famous narrative poem Beowulf. Grendel was a monstrous killer.
  • It had four different U.S. release dates before it was finally released.
  • Several of the characters in the film are named after screenwriter Todd Farmer's online friends in the PC game "EverQuest".
  • Screewnwriter Todd Farmer based much of Jason X on Alien, even naming one of the characters (who he would incidentally play) Dallas, after Tom Skerritt's character in the Ridley Scott film.
  • The character Janessa was originally named Jessica, after producer Sean S. Cunningham's sister.
