Product Description

Jason Goes to Hell (DVD)

Jason Voorhees, the living, breathing essence of evil, is back for one fierce, final fling! Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday Tracked down and blown to bits by a special FBI task force, everyone now assumes that he's finally dead. But everybody assumes wrong. Jason has been reborn with the bon-chilling ability to assume the identity of anyone he touches. The terrifying truth is that he could be anywhere. Or anybody. In this shocking, blood-soaked finale to Jason's carnage-ridden reign of terror, the horrible secret of his unstoppable killing instinct is finally revealed. And once you know the chilling facts, you'll see him in your nightmares ... And he'll see you in hell!


Blow mad killer Jason Voorhees to smithereens in the opening sequence of the movie? Sorry, folks, you have to do better than that. Jason's evil spirit finds its way into a series of host bodies, thus continuing the carnage at Crystal Lake, in Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Naturally, part 9 is not the final Friday the 13th movie (no big deal: part 4, you'll recall, was titled The Final Chapter). Jason confronts a long-lost sister at the lake, while the usual assortment of naked teens are dispatched. This one tries to vary the formula a bit but ends up with a story line every bit as nonsensical as those that came before. The final sequence tries to put Jason away for keeps and calls upon the demons of hell for support. The last shot is an outrageous joke, which is perhaps what this franchise deserves. --Robert Horton

Elizabeth Marcus (Julie Michaels) is being chased through the woods by Jason. Typical Friday The 13th movie, right? Wrong. A bunch of bright lights flash on, startling Jason. The FBI comes out of hiding and shoot Jason numerous times. In fact, Kane Hodder, as Jason, had the most squibs ever on an actor. Jason is then blown to smithereens, causing body parts to go flying. It's a pretty cool opening sequence, but how are they going to finish the movie?

Jason's tattered remains are being examined by a professional. The man is hypnotized by Jason's black heart so much so that he eats it (there's some interesting acting). This brings the spirit of Jason into him. He continues to go from body to body, searching for his living family members (his sister, his niece, and his niece's baby). If he can get one of them to host his spirit, he will be reborn with into his old body, complete with mask and all.

He switches bodies multiple times throughout the movie, which is kind of cool. The downside of this is that there aren't many scenes with Jason as Jason -- that is, Kane Hodder as Jason. This is his third of four times playing Jason in a row. Hodder does have a short appearance as an FBI agent, but he gets killed.

The ending is pretty lame with the 'heart creature' and the giant hands from Hell. However, the sequence right before the credits is very exciting. I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it, but let's just say that there's a very special cameo.

Aside from the cameo I just mentioned, there are some other interesting appearances. The book in the old Voorhees house is the Book Of The Dead from the Evil Dead movies. Additionally, the dagger used to kill Jason was the same daggeer used in Evil Dead.

At least, if you're into the horror genre. There are a few things that make this entry in the series a cut above the other Fridays: First, there's certainly an abundance of plot- we've got Jason's origin and some actual character development. Second, there are some good actors in this movie- Erin Gray, John D. LeMay, Steven Culp, etc. We actually care for some of these characters. Third, you get the feeling that this is the first time the filmmakers are actually in on the joke... as in every horror movie, the couple that has sex is 'punished' but in this movie, there's even an amusing scene where, right before Jason kills them, he steps on the condom that the guy tossed out of the tent- so much for safe sex! And how about those Vorhees burgers and Jason fingers at the diner? And the scene where the woman strips and takes a shower in order to draw Jason out into the open? Too funny! And that last scene was a perfect way to end the movie and nicely set up future sequels.

The Pro's:

It had to be different because they'd already suppossedly killed Jason for the last time in the Final Chapter. Secondly, it's an intriguing idea to go outside Camp Crystal Lake and witness how the legend of Jason Voorhees has effected the community. I think doing this was a daring move. It's the only film, other than the first one, to give us some kind of back-story and add more to the mythos and genealogy of Jason Voorhees. Also, Jason Goes To Hell is one of four Friday films starring Kane Hodder as Jason. Hodder is widely recognized as the best Jason but the four films he played Jason in are commonly considered the weakest entries in the series, with the exception of A New Beginning in which Jason did not appear. I have a theory that the Kane Hodder entries (Part's VII,VIII,IX and X) are probably brought down by Friday traditionalists--in my opinion, traditionalists are probably older fans that remember the first one when it was in theaters and consider the first four films the best because they stuck closest to the original template created by Sean S. Cunningham. It seems to me, the Friday traditionalists have a problem with substance, or a stand-alone story line, in their Friday films. I can see the point of this argument and I would be in favor of it if the additional story elements slowed the films down or got in the way of the chief reason why people go to see these movies, horrific violence. (Now, I know what you're going to say, we go to these movies to see Jason! And, Jason's barely in this installment! Well, I'll get to that in the next paragraph!) Keeping that in mind, Jason Goes To Hell is probably the goriest entry in the Friday series and all of the gore is intact in the final cut of the movie.

Format: VHS Tape
While Scream would come along and do the parody/homage to the slasher movie genre in a few years, this movie did a great job of alternating loving and hating the series upon which it was based. Friday the 13th with slight variation was always about a faceless serial killer who silently stalked his victims and always managed to kill them while they were having sex. While people would crow about the sex=death Victorian morality, the whole point was to get sex and violence on the screen at the same time. Friday the 13th may not have been the best of the genre but it was certainly the longest lasting, if only because it was relatively cheap to film on the same set.
This movie was where everyone decided that it was tired (as it had been for the last three movies) and decided to send it off with a rousing tribute to horror movies. Jason suddenly gets a background, a disembodied soul (to explain all those "I'm not quite dead yet" moments from the first 8 movies) and a mission. Based on this movie you could even make a case for the mother from the first movie being possessed by Jason and if only Drew Barrymore had thought of that at the beginning of Scream that character would have survived all the three movies -- then again, would that be a good thing?
Not only does this movie send off the series, but also celebrates the death of the serial killer genre. By making Jason into a soul-....... demon complete with exorcism scenes, this movie is giving into the main slasher competition, ie. the demon genre. Freddy Krueger's glove and the book from the Evil Dead trilogy only cement that death. After this movie, slasher movies would have to be self-referential and ironic to be taken seriously.
Buy it. It's a fun horror movie, but it definitely goes against the Friday the 13th genre. Then again, the Friday the 13th genre was getting stale by this time anyhow.
