Jason Goes To Hell - The Final Friday Movie Review






Jason Goes To Hell - The Final Friday Movie Review

Ok, so I can remember seeing this trailer in 1993. I was had just turned 18 years old. And back then I made it to the movies twice and some times three times a week. Sitting in the theater and this trailer can on. You want to talk about a great movie trailer. Complete fired upness of the up most Jack. Well. This movie at the time promised that this was Jason Voorhees Final Friday. The end of a legend. As we all know that didn't pan out. In all honesty, now that I'm much older I'd been pissed if this is how it all ended. This movie had involvement of original Friday director Sean Cunningham. It also brought in the crossover Friday the 13th series star John D. LeMay. Which as Steven was a pretty damn good lead actor to go head to head with ol' Jason. Steven Williams was very memorable as bounty hunter Creighton Duke. As he told a newscaster that Jason reminded him of a little girl in a pink dress sticking a hot dog through a donut. Huh... ok. but, some how that was a great line. So as we approach what we all hope will be a tremendous and long going relaunch of Jason Voorhees terror I will talk Jason Goes to Hell. Now the premise was that Jason could only be killed by another member of Jason's family. He would born through a Voorhees and could only die by the hands of a Voorhees. Hmmm. Ok? Not a bad idea. But........ Wait. Jason gets the dog shit blown out of him in the first 5 minutes of the movie. Which is actually pretty cool. And this movie also had a very big brutal Jason Voorhees played by Kane Hodder. Which to this day Kane to me is Jason. With CJ Graham and I suspect Derek Mears being a close 2nd (tie). The only problem. In true oh shit. Friday Part V fashion. Jason is really a hellbaby. Spawned from hell and can jump bodies if some body eats his heart or the hell baby is transferred from one body to the rest. Wait. WTF? Jason does what you ask? Yes, jumps bodies. Now I would've actually dug this movie if Jason Voorhees wasn't involved. But, damnit. We have one of the coolest looking Jason's ever. And we get to see him for all of 10 minutes. Oh damn. Honestly, it still wasn't the worst of the series and it wasn't the best to end on. To this day Friday the 13th Part IV was a damn realistic end to Jason's terror. I understood what they were trying to do. And we know New Line was thinking Jason needs a supernatural aspect if we hope to get him and Freddy Krueger together. Which we find out doesn't have to be the case so much. So Jason gets pulled to hell at the end by demons. I think their demons. This movie had some very strong points: John D. LeMay, Steven Williams, Erin Gray (former Buck Rodgers hottie), Kane Hodder, cool looking Jason, the swat team setup scene, some great deaths including the impalement in the tent (which is in my top 10 Friday deaths which i'll reveal before the new Friday hits), great movie trailer. And had some not so great points: Hellbaby jumping body to body, way too little Jason (actual hockey mask wearing). I would have thought Friday Part V would have taught everybody to not stray to far away from formula. Also, I will continue to say to this day if Jason is killed for good. Tommy Jarvis has to be brought back to do it. It will be great history and fans of the series would love seeing it especially in today's era. That final scene would be killer. Guys, this is not a terrible movie. its a pretty good horror movie. And its a pretty good Friday movie. I own it and still watch it about every 6 months. If you haven't seen the unrated you need to go get it. I give it 3.5 out of 5 axes. Not the horrible Friday part V but, not the gold standards that Friday Part IV, VI, and Freddy vs Jason set. Which is what Friday has to meet to ever finish Jason off... For good.
