Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)


This is the one you've all been waiting for. The incredibly huge pile of shit that is Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. It came out in 1993, and was directed by Adam Marcus. We've hinted at our thoughts throughout the entire life of the show and now we're finally here. Honestly, before we all sat down to watch this film for the show, we had our minds made up that it was going to be terrible. However, a couple of us may have changed our minds.

  • What was the MO or location was Creighton in the past few installments?
  • When the heck did the Necronomicon become a part of the Friday universe and does it have any other effects on past history?
  • Do you think that this film disregards some previous installments for continuity's sake or is the New Line trilogy an alternate universe setting?
  • Every time some takes a dump in the series they never wipe. You guys ever notice that?
  • I just listened to the episode where you talk about if Roy could possibly be in cahoots with Tommy Jarvis. I have a separate theory. I've always thought that Roy was attempting to place the blame of the murders on Tommy. When he finally snapped at his son's death, he made a plan on using Tommy as a scapegoat as misdirection. Roy placed a number of bodies in Tommy's room that Pam & Reggie discovered. That could also explain why Roy had a “hood.” He knew Tommy was a mask maker so he could have planned on leaving that at the scene. Now where he got that on short notice, who knows. Same thing with the mask, which btw he might not have known that the blue chevrons was incorrect. Perhaps the only information he had was the real Jason had that type of hock. No mention of the colors. There was a picture in a newspaper clipping but that was in black and white. Plus I also think that all the incidental killings the prior days, Roy didn't have either the hood and/or mask. Just him trying to get “practice” so when they did come in, he can do his full on murder spree on Pinehurst. If he wore anything, it might just have been a ski mask or something.

Have a question about Friday the 13th or want to vindicate a theory? Let us know!

    I’ve always thought that Tommy made the hock in part 6. They spent tons of time establishing that he was great at making masks in The Final Chapter, and a quick seen in part 5. I think they were just continuing that thought in part 6. Certainly much, much more plausible than Tommy blackmailing a cop to get the original one….

    • The only reason I didn’t go there was basically because we’d only seen him make stuff out of latex. It is likely that he made it, but I wasn’t ready to make that leap because of that.

      Ugh.. I mean ‘scene’.

    If you thought the continuity of the hockey mask was bad in part 6, just wait till you get to FVSJ. At least in part 6 there was some resemblance to his mask from the fourth film. In FVSJ there’s zero as he he goes from a burnt and cut up mess in the preceding film to a undamaged Part 3 style mask.

    im coming out of hiding to say that i think jason goes to hell is my second favorite in the series next to the final chapter. I also agree with jason parker on your podcast about it. I will admit i admire this pile of shit movie lol.

    • I think after watching it for the show, Eric and I have come around. I won’t say it’s my favorite, but it’s for sure not the worst in my opinion anymore.
