‘Jason Goes to Hell’ Gets A Documentary
Probably one of the most controversial of all the Friday the 13th films is about to get a chilling retrospective documentary!
Dread Central dropped the news yesterday about the upcoming documentary ‘The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday’ which will tell the full story of Jason Goes to Hell.
“I am thrilled to have been approached by Nick Hunt and Black Heart Productions to tell the story of the making of Jason Goes to Hell. I’m looking forward to getting the chance to illustrate the journey of my first film and to hopefully set the record straight on all the controversies surrounding the movie. I can say for myself and my Skeleton Crew partners, Debra Sullivan and Bryan Sexton that we are ‘happier than a little girl in a pink dress pushing a hot dog through a donut’ to be collaborating with Nick and Black Heart to bring this documentary to life.”
Coinciding with the films 25th Anniversary, the documentary will give viewers in-depth look at the film that pretty much broke the Friday the 13th mould. For those of your that may have let this one slip by, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) took a sharp right form your usual Friday the 13th film and gave Jason the power to transfer between people via a death slug. This weird plot device meant that the hockey masked killer was barely in his “last film”. The Documentary hopes to unravel some of the films mysteries and secrets.
The documentary will be directed Nick Hunt, who had this to say.
“Jason Goes to Hell to me has always been the most highly debated upon, the most unique and the most ballsy of any of the other Friday the 13th films to come to fruition,”Hunt tells us. “I always felt it was misunderstood and that people didn’t know the entire story behind it; the people that put their blood, sweat, and tears into it. And now it’s coming up on its 25th Anniversary and I want to show it the love it deserves, the fans the appreciation they deserve and hopefully make something unique and special for all the franchise fans.”
Cool. More news as it comes in!
