At the end of the film, when the portal to Hell opens, Freddy Krueger's glove emerges to snatch Jason's hockey mask. If one accepts that Freddy was in Hell following his defeat in Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) (which was released in 1991 but actually set in the future), interesting timeline clues emerge. Namely, "Freddy's Dead" took place (according to the beginning crawl) "ten years from now". As noted, Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991) came out in 1991. However, the "Nightmare on Elm Street" Companion website opted to interpret "10 Years from Today" as 10 years from 1989 (events of the prior film to the "Final Nightmare", A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989)). In any event, if "Jason Goes To Hell" follows the events of "Freddy's Dead", then it must take place in either 1999 or 2001. See more »
Robert is reflected in the car hood as he is grabbing at Steven and Jessica. But since Robert is possessed by Jason, it should be a reflection of Jason instead. See more »
Not actually killed in Manhattan (surprise, surprise), Jason is still at it until an undercover FBI agent (Julie Michaels, who makes time to take a shower) tricks him into an ambush where he's blown to pieces. If you think being head and limbless will stop Mr. Voorhees from returning to his murderous ways, think again. Now we learn that he can be "reborn" through a blood relative and can possess victims by sending an evil black monster into their bodies (idea stolen from THE HIDDEN).
In a touching tribute to the good ol' days of simplicity, overage-looking "teens" make time for skinny-dipping and tent sex before Jason splits the girl in half with a tent stake. This ninth installment in the endless Friday THE 13TH series features a good cast, but is derivative, annoying, unpleasant and not likely to be the final word in the Jason saga, despite ANOTHER cheat title (remember "The Final Chapter" way back in 1984?).
It played theaters in a cut R version (where it flopped), but the unrated "Director's Cut" video and DVD version restores most of the excellent KNB Group gore effects and some nudity, redeeming factors in a low-grade production like this. Kane Hodder (in his third appearance as Jason) also gets a credit for stunts.
