Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

Final installments of horror series are much like farewell tours are to rock bands, you never know what's going to happen with the franchise as it were. This one was left with a zinger alluding to JASON V.S. FREDDY which due to scripting problems was put on hold and we ended up with JASON X. Hell, you, been there so throw the big guy in the hockey mask's ass up in space and let him have at it! Kane Hodder is all over this film, as Jason, a security guard and considering he is the one working Freddy's glove at the end we could in a sense say he's the first to play both roles. It's not a great film and despite the fact it was marketed as 'the creator of the first returns to bring you the last" all Sean Cunningham did was produce the damn thing. There are all kinds of industry in-jokes and cameos such as the Necromicon from EVIL DEAD and Fluffy's crate from CREEPSHOW making cameo prop appearances. Nice to see some known names for a change, Erin Gray is rather wasted but Steven Williams is put to good use and Rusty Schwimmer is an absolute gas! Alas, this Friday the 13th really needed more gore, I mean, what's the point without it!
