Apollo Guide

Sure, this one's got gore galore and a boatload of atrocious acting performances to giggle at, but without Jason doing the stalking - it's just not a Friday the 13th movie.

The film suffers from bad continuity, sloppy editing, bland acting, ridiculous plot developments and cardboard characters. It is also the most grotesque film in the series.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Aimless, overlong, confusing, and in possession of plot holes large enough to land a fighter plane on.

As torturous an experience for the viewer as it is for the victims.

I've now seen all nine of the series' entries, so trust me when I say that Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday is very likely the worst of the bunch.

Q Network Film Desk

That the end result is convoluted, lacking in logical coherence, and sometimes downright silly is not ideal, but you can sense the genuine desire to take the story in a new direction

One of Jason's finer moments

| Original Score: 3/5

A very NewLineesque ninth sequel to Friday the 13th

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Well, it's no Part VI, but then it's no Jason X either.

Although it may not be a "good" Friday the 13th movie (by whatever strange standards that is reckoned)...Jason Goes to Hell works reasonably well on its own terms as a supernatural thriller.
