not the best Idea , but very different. Great characters but too little actual Jason .

In the hands of a 23 year-old first-time director, and with a script that was written in just four days, Jason Goes to Hell does add an pretty interesting premise to a tired franchise, and partially revives said franchise by somewhat delivering on that premise. The film as a whole isn't great, and adding some new mythology in the NINTH film in the franchise wasn't the best move, but the kills are gruesome, the opening scene is a mini-masterpiece, and the finale and ending are reasonably well done.

Jason is lured into a trap and killed, only to start possessing the bodies of other people. It seems he can only be killed by someone from his own blood line, and surprise ... he has a sister (Erin Gray), who has a daughter ... who also has a daughter. Jason tries to track down these family members (who have never given much thought to during 6 previous films) while a bounty hunter tries to destroy him. New Line takes over the dormant Friday the 13th franchise and takes it in what can only be called a new direction. It's not a Friday the 13th film, but it's not terrible either ... it's really a dumber, gorier version of "The Hidden". If that sounds okay to you, you just might like it. KNB contribute some good gory effects which kind of carry you through the idiotic plot. It has quite a few annoying post-Scream era nods to other horror films ("The Evil Dead", "Creepshow", "A Nightmare on Elm Street"), one of which spawned the whole "Freddy vs. Jason" idea.

Not really all that good. Then again you don't go into any horror film of this nature thinking about plot or character building.

I know it is terrible but i really love this one; it tries to go the way of typical supernatural horror and mostly succeeds, even though a lot of the plot is gibberish. It is fun to watch, it has and excellent progression and a capable direction that is fully aware of how ludicrous the whole thing is.

It's not all that bad. Maybe you should give it a chance if you want

Begs the question, can we consider this a story?

A new low in the series. In trying a new inventive way to tell tales from camp crystal lake they become boring. People watch these movies because they are what they are...this film does not know what it is.

Worse than Jason X. I only liked the fact that it led to Freddy vs. Jason.

This is a truly ambitious movie. The director, screenwriter and even the actors wanted this movie to be the biggest Friday ever. However, it fails nearly from the get go. 5 minutes in to this film, Jason gets blown to bits by the FBI who used a young female operative as bait. From there it is all downhill as the story goes from weird to gross to nearly unwatchable until it reaches its crescendo. There are of course some highlights, most notably the death of a young woman as she reaches climax during intercourse, but for the most part this seemed like a cluster of ideas that never truly meshed. The idea that Jason is simply a spirit that can travel between bodies is not new as it was in a couple of the earlier films, but this film took it further by having him jump between a total of 4 different people before being reborn. This movie is something you need to watch if you want to complete the Friday the 13th series, but otherwise steer clear. Watching a grown man eat a still beating heart or several people extending a disgusting elongated black tongue into others mouths or knowing the spirit of Jason is reborn by a corpse, these things are not worthy of the average movie watcher and should be avoided.

The problem with the series after 6 is tryin to add subtext to the series, which ultimately makes it worse. This makes no snense and fails to even Jason.

Entertaining with great gory goods, but with no real connection to the previous Friday The 13th films.

Oh man, what a piece of shit. The bloodiest, most brutal, goriest, and grossest Jason film is also the weirdest, strangest and most insulting. When a whole crew (and then some) of FBI guys gun down and blow up Jason, he takes the form of a worm-like creature so he can start possessing people while he searches for his last living relative and her child (because she is the only one who can kill him). This is the worst version of Jason I've seen, his design (when he's on-screen) is ugly, and he makes dumb noises and grunts a lot (including when he's being gunned down). For most of the film, Jason is just a bunch of random people, none of whom are intimidating or frightening (freaky, maybe....but scary, no). I also didn't care for Steven Williams as Bounty Hunter Creighton Duke, who isn't in the film much, serves next to no purpose, and is an antagonistic asshole for most of the scenes he appears in. I like John D. LeMay as Steven (our hero), and I appreciate just how far the film goes with the violence but it makes many weird, half-assed choices that don't make much sense. Jason Goes To Hell is certainly more watchable and entertaining (in a groan-inducing way) than A New Beginning and The New Blood, but I'd say this is still likely the worst installment in the Friday the 13th franchise. Be on the lookout for references to The Evil Dead, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and The Thing.

This movie was weird and messed up. The plot made zero sense and was ridiculous. The blood and gore was actually pretty well done in this entry. It was a decent fun movie and was entertaining.

Horrible horrid Jason Voorhees movie starring some random people. Jason went to the underworld in the final 5 minutes of this movie and you don't even see any fire from the underworld the entire movie. What I did like in this movie is when Freddy Krueger s hand comes up out of the ground and grabs Jason's mask.

The plot is stupid but the acting was good and the jason looked pretty cool. The main thing I didn't like about the movie was the story it was adding pointless things to the story that made no sense.

This is by far the weirdest Jason movie. Everything about it is just bizarre. Obviously someone saw Alien and then made this movie. However, there's some pretty good kills that were worth screaming during, so it's not a terrible movie, just really... Strange.

Whoah I'm not quite sure what they were going for with this one, but man is this movie all over the place. Jason Vorhees (Kane Hodder) is finally killed by a special task force made by the FBI. His remains are sent to a morgue and that's when stuff get's crazy. His still beating heart somehow mesmerizes the coroner who ends up eating the heart and becomes possessed by Jason. It's absolutely bat shit crazy. Throughout the film he keeps transferring body to body eventually trying to find the body of a Vorhees to become resurrected. And who is that? Well turns out Jason had a half sister that was never ever mentioned in the last 15 or so years of these damn films and her name is Diana Kimble (Erin Gray), but the real focus here is her daughter Jessica (Kari Keegan) and her new born daughter Stephanie. Along for the ride is Jessica's ex-boyfriend Steven Freeman (John D. LeMay) who actually is more of the main character than Jessica. Jason keeps chasing them all after Steven finds out from a way over the top bounty hunter named Creighton Duke (Steven Williams) reveals the backstory to this all. It's up to Steven to save Jessica (or maybe it's the other way around) and to finally make sure Jason get's put down for good! Ok so there's a few positives to this film. Maybe since it came out in 1993 and it had been four years since the last film it finally feels a bit more modern than the previous films. It still has some cheesy moments, but the film has a decent pace. It's also the goriest of all the other films. Which is either good or bad for ya if you like that. The bad here is that Jason is barely in this film! Yes he "possesses" the other people, but you see them representing Jason. We see him in the mask for the first five minutes and the last ten minutes, it's just doesn't feel like a Friday the 13th film as much as the others. The whole plot with having a half sister too are just ridiculous. Overall, not the best "ending" to the franchise (which obviously it didn't since a few more came out). Definitely, not the high point of this franchise!
