A really enjoyable installment
14 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jason Goes To Hell is an underrated flick (much better than Part 6, Part 8, JX, and FVJ; all of which were atrocities). It IS very silly and does mess with Jason's mythology, but still, the positive aspects are plentiful. The gore in this entry obviously benefited from the bigger budget, with easily some of the best and most gruesome murders in the series. The sexuality and nudity are also kicked up, keeping continuity with the rest of the series. The overall movie is incredibly fun and entertaining, even if it doesn't exactly fit with the other movies in the series. With it's gore and excessive campiness, it still holds true to many of the conventions of the series. This is an undeniably goofy, tongue-in-cheek horror film full of a few well-played gambles, some good humour (thankfully this installment has it's limits and doesn't go overboard with it like Part 6), and features one of the best out-of-left-field endings since the first Sleepaway Camp.

Jason Goes To Hell isn't at the top of my list for the Friday The 13th series, but it's also not at the very bottom either. If you want to see a REAL franchise-ruining film, try Jason X, Halloween Resurrection, or Nightmare On Elm Street 5.
