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.

as Jim slides on top of Suzy. Thoughts of Jason are

starting to slip away along with their clothes.

EXT. UNDERWATER - NIGHT (TANK)

as the chains emit a dull tinkle due to movement from the

tugging anchor. Camera continues to TRACK again...and we

find to our horror that the waterlogged, fish-eaten body

of JASON IS SECURED BY THESE SAME CHAINS. (NOTE: Jason's

face is obscured.)

INT. HOUSEBOAT - CONTINUOUS

Teenagers in love, lost in not-so-innocent passion. At

the same moment:

EXT. UNDERWATER - NIGHT (TANK)

The anchor tugs one last time and RIPS THROUGH THE CABLE.

SPARKS INSTANTLY FLY, chasing along the cable, finding

the chain which secures Jason and ENGULFING HIM IN

ELECTRICITY.

EXT. HOUSEBOAT - ON LAKE SURFACE (EFX)

as BRIGHT FLASHES OF BLUE LIGHT strobe-under the surface.

ARCING CURRENT chases up the anchor cable, sparking

across the hoist.

EXT. CAMP CRYSTAL LAKE - WIDE SHOT FROM WATER

as the electricity feeding the streetlights is abruptly

extinguished, plunging the campsite into darkness.

INT. HOUSEBOAT - CONTINUOUS

as Suzy's eyes flash open.

SUZY:

Did you hear that?

JIM:

Hear what?

He pulls her back down.

SUZY:

C'mon, I'm serious.

He knows the mood is broken.

JIM:

All right, I'll check it out.

He slips on his jeans, exiting the cabin. She pulls the

sheet up around her fearfully.

EXT. UNDERWATER - NIGHT (TANK)

as the cable smolders, void of electricity now. TRACK to

find the chains again...but they're dangling loosely.

JASON IS GONE.

INT. HOUSEBOAT - CONTINUOUS

Suzy is tensely kneeling on the bed now. The black void

of night is all she sees out the cabin door, which Jim

has left open. An uncomfortable amount of time passes.

SUZY:

Jimmy...?

No answer. Her heart starts to pound.
