New ‘Jason Goes To Hell’ Documentary Announced For 2018!


Over the years, I have taken a lot of heat over my affinity for the divisive film Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday.  I hope that our readers and all fans recognize that I do not love the film blindly and recognize the huge departure from formula that Jason Goes To Hell represents. Knowing the numerous faults involved with the production, I still love this film.

Even more than the actual film, I truly appreciate the strong marketing and tie-in promotions that New Line Cinema used to create awareness. This site is littered with examples of my fondess for the marketing and props from the film, so I am extremely delighted to tell our readers that a brand new documentary is being produced by Jason Goes To Hell director Adam Marcus!

Late last night, Dread Central got the scoop about the documentary and today we have information that will make the 25th anniversary of the film in 2018 very special.

Nick Hunt will direct The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday, which will provide a never-before-seen and much deserved in-depth look at the most controversial and debated film in the franchise.

From the press release:
Through interviews and behind the scenes details, you will understand the unique landscape the series was in at the time, having just changed studios and already being on the road to the eventual Freddy vs. Jason film which wouldn’t see release for another 8 years. You will see the unusual hand Adam Marcus was dealt and the immense pressure and scrutiny which was placed on him during production. And you will see genre greats, both who were in the film and not, weigh in on Jason’s journey to hell.

In Jason Goes to Hell, you learned secrets about Jason you never knew before! In The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees, you will understand what was and what could have been about The Final Friday!

More details about the documentary will be made available in the near future. Stay tuned!
