It’s one of my least favourite Friday The 13ths, so initially I was surprised to read that a feature length documentary is being made about Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Crystal Lake Memories seemed to cover the whole franchise well enough, and I would imagine that many fans also own the fabulous book of the same title [I plead guilty!]. However, it seems that there’s a lot to tell about the making of this controversial series entry that hasn’t yet been revealed.
From the Press Release:
Through interviews and behind the scenes details, you will understand the unique landscape the series was in at the time, having just changed studios and already being on the road to the eventual Freddy vs. Jason film which wouldn’t see release for another 8 years. You will see the unusual hand Adam Marcus was dealt and the immense pressure and scrutiny which was placed on him during production. And you will see genre greats, both who were in the film and not, weigh in on Jason’s journey to hell.
In Jason Goes to Hell, you learned secrets about Jason you never knew before! In The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees, you will understand what was and what could have been about The Final Friday!
Says director Nick Hunt:
“Jason Goes to Hell is one of the most highly criticised but highly talked about entries in the entire franchise and in my estimation it took pure balls to make that film. I want this documentary to clear things up and for people to hear it directly out of the horse’s mouth. I want them to hear The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Plus get up-close-and-personal with all of the people that were involved in making the film.”
Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus is producing.
