Jason Goes to Hell (DVD)
Jason Voorhees, the living, breathing essence of evil, is back for onefierce, final fling! Tracked down and blown to bits by a special FBItask force, everyone now assumes that he's finally dead. But everybodyassumes wrong. Jason has been reborn with the bone-chilling ability toassume the identity of anyone he touches. The terrifying truth is thathe could be anywhere, or anybody. In this shocking, blood-soaked finaleto Jason's carnage-ridden reign of terror, the horrible secret of hisunstoppable killing instinct is finally revealed. And once you know thechilling facts, you'll see him in your nightmares!]]>
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 HortonSee all Editorial Reviews

First of all, "Jason Goes to Hell" is not the final entry in the "Friday the 13th" franchise. New Line Cinema later produced the futuristic "Jason X" in which astronauts find a frozen Jason and take him aboard their spacecraft for more mayhem. "Jason Goes to Hell" attempts to reveal Jason's secret as to why he can not be destroyed. A grotesque eel-like creature (of demonic origin) with rows of sharp teeth has been keeping Jason alive ever since he supposedly drowned at Crystal Lake. It reminded me much of "The Hidden," a superior science fiction horror film starring Michael Nouri as a detective tracking down an eel-like alien who travels from one human host to another via their mouth.
John D. Lemay (who played Ryan in the "Friday the 13th" hit television series) is Steven Freeman; he must find and destroy the creature before it enters the body of a Voorhees descendant and is reborn as Jason Voorhees. This film had a good premise; it would've been much better if the acting wasn't amateurish and the plot predictable and silly. "Jason Goes to Hell" is the goriest of the entries, as though the gore would conceal the acting and plot deficiencies. Also, the ending was very unbelievable. Jason continuously slaps and tosses John D. Lemay around, as though he is a puppet, without killing him; others have been easily killed with a single strike.
On a high note, the director of the original "Friday the 13th," Sean S. Cunningham, returns to direct this one. Also, the legendary Harry Manfredini has returned to provide another creepy, suspenseful score.
"Jason Goes to Hell" is definitely different from all of the other entries. Too different for many fans and critics. Despite its shortcomings, however, I still enjoyed this film. It is recommended for fans of Jason Voorhees. All others should rent before purchasing.
Note: The "Friday the 13th" remake was heavily criticized because Jason took someone hostage; fans complained he'd never done that. In "Jason Goes to Hell," he takes a police officer hostage. In fact, he straps him to a table, strips him naked, and shaves his face before subsequently possessing his body. Why the stripping and shaving, I'll never know. Perhaps it was a Satanic ritual. Jason didn't do it when possessing the coroner or the slimy newscaster.
