Jason Voorhees, the living, breathing essence of evil, is back for one fierce, final fling. Tracked down and blown to bits by a special FBI task force, everyone now assumes that he’s finally dead. But everyone assumes wrong. Jason has been reborn with the bone-chilling ability to assume the identity of anyone he touches. The terrifying truth is he could be anywhere, or anybody. In this shocking, blood-soaked finale to Jason’s carnage-ridden of terror, the horrible secret of his unstoppable killing instinct is finally revealed.
This was probably the worse Friday The 13th movie ever made. There were only about 2 good parts, through-out the entire movie. The first good scene was, obviously, the beginning. The next is the end with Jason fighting and being dragged to Hell. After he goes underground and they zoom in on the mask, Freddy’s arm with his glove comes up and grabs the hockey mask. Other than that, everything else sucked, in my opinion.
As for the storyline, they made it feel like I was watching something science fiction, instead of horror. Even the effects made it seem like a sci-fi movie, with the beams of light. With the whole transfer of bodies, it was probably the worse idea they have ever came up with. Once the movie starts off, you notice New Line released this movie, instead of Paramount. So, you already know how bad it will be and you already know they’ll promote their movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street” in there and as you can tell, they did, at the end.
On a good note, the kill scenes were pretty good and gory. I think this one had more gore in it, than any of the previous films. For example, there was a part where one of the characters melted and his skin came off. Another scene was when a person got stabbed or impaled, the guy with Jason inside of him, brung the weapon upwards and it split the person in half. I think the gore was probably the only good thing New Line added to the movie, in my opinion.
I could probably make a long list of the things New Line screwed up on, but I won’t. Instead, I’ll only name a few to give you an idea on how they ruined this movie. First, the main thing that stood out most was Jason’s mask. Through-out the previous parts that Jason did have a hockey mask on, it was always the traditional style mask. In this part, it was metal and looked like it was pounded into his head or something. Also, it was a lot smaller than his head, unlike the older ones. Next is the storyline, out of every previous film, they have always mentioned the parts before it. As for this one, they didn’t do it because New Line wasn’t allowed to use the “Friday The 13th” logo or use any of the footage, from what I have heard. So, they couldn’t explain how Jason went from turning into a little boy, after the toxic waste got on him, to becoming a grown man again.
Another thing I didn’t like was out of the 8 previous parts, not once did anyone say anything about Jason having a sister. If they were going to mention anything about relatives, I think it would have been brought to our attention, within the first 2 or 3 parts of the series.
Anyways, if you haven’t seen this part of the series, it’s not all that great and should be avoided. If you want the see the beginning of the movie or the very end, I’m sure there’s a website somewhere that has those scenes. More than likely, YouTube probably has it on there. It’ll save you some money and be able to use it on something a lot better.
As for my rating, I would have gave it one star, but the beginning and end was good enough for an extra star. Plus, it wasn’t the type of movie that bores you out of your mind and makes you want to turn it off.
