Richard Gant originally read for the role of Creighton Duke before being cast as Phil the Coroner instead. See more »


It appears no one even did the slightest bit of police work in the murder of Jessica's mother, if they had they would have seen evidence that Steve's story was true. Like evidence of someone going out the window and the cop's fingerprints on the knife. See more »

Oh God!
19 October 2019 | by NpMoviezSee all my reviews

The amount of "what the hell is going on?" has never been so high. Those who say the remake was awful, have you seen Jason Goes to Hell?

Good : There is an interesting character - Duke. He seems interesting a lot. He doesn't do anything significant to shine in the movie, he is just dumping expositions. But the actor makes it likable.

Bad : Yet another whacked out Friday the 13th movie! This feels like a forced pile of garbage that is there just to set up Freddy vs. Jason. So far, there has been no mentioning of supernatural origins of Jason, not even hinted. Freddy's Dead is a garbage film. At least it has only mentioning about the tadpoles that powered him throughout the series. We know about his origins from the subsequent movies. Here, everything is done via exposition. Jason's bloodline plotline is just super crammed for not letting this movie die. I said the movie is whacked out, I definitely don't like this lame excuse of a movie. But it is entertaining in "that" way and only in "that" way. If we had some better characters in a better setting and in a fantasy franchise, I think the ideas for this movie could've worked. But it feels like a dispassionate job of a totally bored creative team. Jason possessing people is another weird thing that has never been explained at all. This movie is just a train wreck of weird ideas put on screen. The new elements do not make Jason more interesting. He is perhaps the most goofy and overrated villains of the horror genre. I won't say anything else. It's very boring talking about this movie.

Conclusion : It is just a generic Disney witchcraft film which is a bit darker, a bit gory and features Jason. That's the perfect way to put it. As I like the fantasy witchcraft things, I enjoyed it a bit more than others. Else, it's nothing good.


Score : 1.8/10

Grade : F
