JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL FRIDAY (1993)
This entry, in a series that probably should have ended halfway through part one, gets big points for at least trying something completely different. It sports a twist opening for a change and attempts to create a brand new Jason Voorhees mythology that only acknowledges bits and pieces of the stories that came before it. Like in The Hidden, Jason is now, inexplicably a parasitic manifestation of pure evil that can jump from host body to host body. Fair ‘nuff. But there’s also the inexplicable introduction of a special Jason-killing knife that gets no context. Pretty silly stuff but the gore is over-the-top and big fun. Staple feature, gratuitous nudity, is acknowledged and appreciated. More fun than any of the entries that came before it, but too little too late for fans who stayed away in droves.
