Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday - Review - @BrandonCSites / #Fridaythe13th / #Horror

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) *
D: Adam Marcus
C: Andrew Bloch, Billy Green Bush, Adam Cranner, Steven Culp, Kane Hodder
P: Jason is blown to pieces after a police ambush, but his spirit is resurrected jumping from body to body in an effort to be born again.

Misguided sequel ignores most of the other entries in the series and forgets about logic & reason. It throws in some mumbo jumbo saying that Jason is an evil spirit. It then wallows in its own cruelty, torture, gore and excessive violence while the other Friday the 13th movies had a certain spirit & cheerful disposition to their death sequences that made Jason a modern day anti-hero.  

There’s also a serious lack of Jason. Jason is talked about throughout the film, but other then the opening and closing of the movie, he isn't anywhere to be found as this sequel has him jumping from one body to the next. Jason, in his true physical form, hockey mask and all, is the selling point of this series. Jason is the heart and soul of this series and you just can't exclude him from a film bearing his name. Without Jason, it just isn't the same. Even an eye opening twist in the final frames can’t salvage this. The R rated version runs 85 minutes. [R] 91 mins.
