Where do horror franchises go when they run out of good ideas? Apparently they go to outer space. Although, a slasher movie on a spaceship isn’t the worst idea.

Does Jason X deserve to be in the same sentence as some of the great sci-fi horror movies like Alien? You probably already know the answer to that, but it could still be campy fun, right?
