Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday
You've gotta be kidding me.

You've gotta be fucking kidding me.

THIS is the way this franchise was supposed to end? I mean, again, of course, that "Final" in the title is a bit misleading. I HATE it when they try to change all the rules all of a sudden. Nearly 15 years of history undone like THAT by some silly plot that is the last word. Bringing in supernatural hoodoo mumbo jumbo at the last minute, making what was already a fairly preposterous franchise into something soooo ridiculous...AARGH! Wow, I wasn't expecting this. Jason's not really a person but a malevolent spirit/force thingie that jumps from body to body via a black penis-looking thing that comes out of people's mouths? Amy Steel! Betsy Palmer! RESCUE ME!!! Let me go to beedddddddddddddddddddddddddd!

This was pretty gory, no? And Erin Gray, what the frig are you doing here?

Dannnnnnng. It's 3:22am.

I like how the next films at least drop the phallic work thing...

I like the way that the whole thing starts - with the coroner inexplicably eating Jason's heart. WTF?! And the way it ends, with the Freddie glove dragging the hockey mask into hell. the bits in between are rubbish though.

The coroner eating the heart was probably the most repellent thing in all 11 movies! Like I said, I'd never seen this one, and the amount of gore and fairly explicit sex really surprised me.
