Trivia

Jason's heart was actually made of gelatin and filled with fruit cocktail, mixed with black dye. Still, actor Richard Gant was disgusted and reportedly nearly threw up during the take. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Jessica is in the shower crying and the power goes out, she gets out, puts on a white t-shirt and goes walking around the house. When she walks through the garage door and grabs a hammer, there is blood on the front of the t-shirt (right at or a little lower than her waist and looks like someone grabbed the shirt with a bloody hand). Where did it come from? She didn't run into anything or anyone. [There's a deleted scene showing her step on a piece of glass. She gets blood on her hands when she pulls the glass out, then presumably wipes her hands on her shirt. Still a mistake, as removing that scene means the blood appears from nowhere, but there's the reason.] See more »

They finally went all out supernatural!
23 November 2002 | by LebowskiT1000See all my reviews

"The Final Friday"??? Yeah, that's a good one! Part 4 was titled "The Final Chapter", and there were more films in the series after that film then there were before it!

Well, what can I say about "Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday"? I'm not going to lie to you, this is a terrible movie. But, it is still an interesting direction for the series. The only thing this film really had going for it are the beautiful women and horror movie references. What I mean are various props used from Evil Dead, The Birds, Creepshow and Nightmare on Elm Street (Freddy's Glove was one of the cooler things to see in the film).

All in all, the story is pretty bad, the acting is far from great, the deaths are ok, the special effects are ok, and the gore-factor is pretty high. If you are a fan of the Friday the 13th Series, then you might want to give this a look just so you can call yourself a true fan, but otherwise I'd recommend watching something that you'll more likely enjoy.

Well, if by some chance you do end up seeing this film, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for reading,

-Chris
