Jason Goes to Hell (1993)
gets killed by the FBI. His heart possesses people’s bodies (they’re hypnotized
by the heart thumping and ingest it)
and in his new forms, Jason hunts down his only blood relatives so
he can be reborn again. What the f..k is going on?
Friday The 13th film this is not.New Line bought
the rights off Paramount and do the same thing they did to Elm
Street…commercialize it. They ignore the 8 previous entries and give
their own take on the masked killer. I didn’t dig the new approach too
much. I’m supposed to believe that Jason has been body hopping the for 8
films… come on!!!! It’s easier for me to believe that in part 2-3-4 he
was just a tough bastard and in 6-7-8 a resilient zombie. This body
hopping shite is for the birds!
that it’s a blatant rip off of “The Hidden”, this film just
doesn’t give us enough Jason for our bucks. I mean Jason is there but
he’s in other people’s bodies. We see him now and then in mirror
reflections and at the finale but through out the movie his physical
presence is too absent.
characters are mostly involving, (loved The Duke) and the acting is fine
but the story is kind of cheap and very “New Line”. We get the
“Voorhees” house, we get Jason having a sister, we get a Jason baby (a
lot like the Freddy baby in Nightmare 5)and we get a big cheesy slam-bang
lightshow at the end that would be more appropriate for the Elm Street
series than the Friday’s. I have a theory: once a horror villain gets a
sibling or a son/daughter tossed in, that means the entry is lazy and
resorts to bullcrap to fill in its plot. My theory doesn’t always apply
but here I think it’s dead on. Jason didn’t need this sister shite and
really didn’t need all the baggage that comes with it…to be honest
Jason didn’t need this script all together. It has nothing to do with
the series I’ve been following for years..
mano vs mano fight sequence between Jason and Steven has more in common
with a WWF episode than Friday The 13th and under whelmed me. I
mean the “real” Jason would have snapped that guy’s neck in a
second…His whole existence is at stakes here!!!! Why is he monkeying
This film plunges head first into the supernatural and I
don’t think that’s the way to go when it comes to Jason. Even
Jason’s look is less grounded in reality and more “fantastical”
character that I wished we saw more of is Vicky (played by the gorgeous
Allison Smith), the shotgun wielding waitress that just keeps on coming. I
loved her and her kickarse action scene was a delight.
do get some nice gun fight scenes, a couple “old fashioned” Jason
killings (the kids camping in the woods) that redefines the importance of
“safe sex”, nods to Evil Dead and CreepShow and lots of bloodshed but
we don’t get an honest Friday The 13th entry.
should’ve called this flick “Nightmare On Hidden Street “.
D. Lemay (Steven) handles himself very well and tackles the part of the
unlikely hero adequately. Kari Keegan (Jessica) also does fine and cries
on Q. Steven Williams (Duke) is the highlight of the film for me. His
performance is tongue in cheek, bigger than life and tough as nails. (I
adored the finger cracking scene) Loved his hat too. Erin Gray (Diana)…
well her acting was too “soap opera” like for my taste. Kane Hodder
(Jason) does fine again when he’s onscreen…rarely. He does have a
funny non Jason cameo as a swat team member.
saw the unrated version and we get lots of red stuff. My fav is this girl’s head being squeezed till her
brains pop out and the chick in the tent. We also get lots of other kind
of gooey stuff, like a decomposing man, lots of squid (bullets) hits and
nasty impalings. Gory fun.
T & A:
This one has enough nudity to fill in
three Friday The 13th films. Tits, ass and even a male butt shot for the
ladies. Lot's of skin. NOTE: Kathryn Atwood who plays the red head
camper is sizzling hot and definite marriage material.
stylized, lots of slow motion action scenes and kool shots…the film
looks good. It also sometime goes back to the Friday The 13th
Chi Chi score and a decent “action” score.
is a tough call…as a movie that has nothing to do with the Friday The 13th
film, this is an ok action/horror opus with lots of gore and nudity. But
as a Friday The 13th sequel, this one misses the boat,
betraying the die hard fans and straying too far from it’s source.
He’s wearing a hockey mask, has a machete but he’s not the Jason I
know. How they went from masked serial killer to body possessing parasite
is beyond me. I welcome different things in a long lasting series but
reinventing the whole saga is not the way to go about it. I hope Jason X
doesn’t make him into an alien…
the final edit, the character David (Jonathan Penner) and his murder were
completely cut from the film. In bootleg prints, the character is
dispatched by Deputy Josh (Andrew Bloch), who has been possessed by the
Jason entity and who bashes David's head against a faucet.
Director's cut is available on video and includes several violent
scenes removed from the theatrical R-rated version.
in the R-rated version that do not appear in director's cut:
scene in the cafe in which Steven makes a mock-prank phone call.
dialogue in Robert and Duke's interview scene.
dialogue in the scene where Randy and Steven fight on the roadside and
pull guns on one another.
in director's cut that do not appear in the R-rated version:
sex scene is longer and more graphic.
more gory violence; nearly all characters cough up blood as they are
being killed, the shot of the tent pole being rammed through the girl,
the shot of the chubby guy's hand being broken off, the shot of Robert (Jason) crushing the girl's head and blood spurting out (she
then says "go to hell"), Coroner (Jason swings the scalpel
more times at the girl outside the tent.
shot of the creature crawling up Diana's dress was also omitted from
the R-rated version.
original script by Jay Huguely featured Jason's brother Elias as the
killer and included backstory about Pamela Voorhees' involvement in
the occult. It was decided, however, that Jason needed to be the focus
of the film, and Dean Lorey was brought in to re-configure the
storyline. Hence, the brother was jettisoned, and the first name Elias
was assigned to Jason's father.
camping scene with the ill-fated Luke, Deborah and Alexis, was not
part of the original script. When test audiences in early 1993
complained about the lack of sex and teenaged characters, the scene
was subsequently written and filmed during a new shoot.
following cuts were made (some of the cuts were made in order to avoid
an "NC-17" rating from the MPAA):
the beginning, before Jason gets blown up by the FBI, the female cop
shoots Jason in the head.
fighting scene between Steven and Jason is longer. At one point Steven
hides inside the climbing rack as Jason tries to grab him.
see Duke being brought in the police station. Duke is brought in,
having been found standing over the empty morgue cabinet that had held
Diana's (Erin Gray) body. What was he doing there? "Trying to
steal the body, obviously," Duke explains irritably, "but
you f**ked up and let someone get to it before I could....if it's
where I think it is, you're in a world of s**t."
the morgue we see the coroner get some instruments from a cabinet.
dialogue in the Duke interview.
original ending where Steven kicks the knife in Jason's chest. Besides
the giant hands there is also a creature which pulls down Jason into
in the body of Josh kills the boyfriend of one of the waitresses after
we see some dialogue between them and she leaves. Jason bangs the
guy's head against a sink.
the creature escapes Randy's body we see Duke fighting with it before
it falls down the basement. Then there is a different dialogue where
Steven asks Duke if the Voorhees which Jason has to be reborn trough
must be alive.
dialogue where Robert Campbell talks on the phone in the Voorhees
house while Steven hides in the closet. He says Jessica can never shut
up about her family and he runs down the whole Voorhees family tree.
