Alternate Versions

The original script by Jay Huguely featured Jason's brother Elias as the killer and included backstory about Pamela Voorhees' involvement in the occult. It was decided, however, that Jason needed to be the focus of the film, and Dean Lorey was brought in to re-configure the storyline. Hence, the brother was jettisoned, and the first name Elias was assigned to Jason's father. See more »

User Reviews

Probably not the send-out fans were hoping for but it does take a cool twist
11 November 2004 | by dirtychildSee all my reviews

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday is (supposedly) the last Friday the 13th chapter... FBI agents hunt down and destroy Jason at Crystal Lake - but Jason has the ability to possess other people's bodies and continues his bloodbath.

I don't think this would be a favourite of the fans - it is quite corny, Jason doesn't feature a lot in the movie... but I think the movie half-way through takes a turn for the better. Instead of being another mindless slasher - the movie goes all John Woo with some cool gun fights and slow motion camera. It was like the director had watched a couple of John Woo films for the first time half-way through shooting the movie and decides... "it would be cool to use this stuff in this movie"!

The "Invasion of the Body Snatcher" plot doesn't work - but I think the stylish gun battles redeem this film somewhat. Sort of recommended!
