Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan script
Synopsis: Mass murderer Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder) is resurrected from the bottom of Crystal Lake. After he kills a passing boat's occupants, he stows away on a cruise ship filled with a high-school graduating class bound for New York City. Biology teacher Charles McCulloch (Peter Mark Richman) is on board with his niece, Rennie (Jensen Daggett), who has visions of Jason drowning as a child. They escape his bloody shipboard rampage, but, when Rennie and Charles reach Manhattan, Jason is close by.

We don't need to see this clip...Suzy's reaction is quite

sufficient.

SUZY:

So the murders stopped?

He gives her a long, penetrating look.

JIM:

No.

FLASHBACK MONTAGE (STOCK)

We're bombarded with QUICK FLASHES of a hockey masked

JASON wreaking havoc on assorted teenagers...brandishing

everything from hatchets to knives to chainsaws. Just as

Jason is about to stab us, CUT BACK TO:

INT. HOUSEBOAT - NIGHT

Suzy flinches as if she were getting the knife.

JIM:

Legend has it that Jason came back to

avenge his mother's death, vowing to

kill every teenager from the area.

(beat)

And every now and then, the murders

start up again.

The boat lurches slightly, tugging at the anchor cable.

She's scared: he's frightened himself a little, too.

JIM:

Forget about it, Suzy. They're just

stories.

He brushes her hair back, kissing her cheek gently,

finding the nape of her neck again. She closes her eyes,

trying to dismiss what he's dredged up. But she can't.

Suzy begins to rationalize.

SUZY:

We're the last graduating class,

right?

Jim's kissing her body, putting Jason behind him.

JIM:

Right.

SUZY:

I mean, Lakeview High just closed its

doors for good, right?

JIM:

Right.

SUZY:

So there's no reason for him to come

back because there won't be any of us

around...right?

Jim stops, looking her squarely in the eyes.

JIM:

Right. Except that Jason isn't real

so none of it matters anyway.

She starts to relax, returning his kisses.

EXT. UNDERWATER - NIGHT (TANK)

as the anchor drifts along the lake floor, tugging hard

on the power cable. Camera TRACKS along the cable,

coming to a RUSTY SET OF CHAINS TANGLED AROUND IT.

INT. HOUSEBOAT - CONTINUOUS
