Much like any long-running horror franchise, Friday the 13th has gone to some strange places in its illustrious history. In short, Jason Voorhees has risen from the grave, took Manhattan in a way much different from the Muppets, gone to space, and has even been rebooted. But one sequel in particular still remains a point of discussion amongst the fanbase, that being the controversial Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.
Personally, it’s my least favorite in the entire series, but I can at least understand why it has its supporters. With its outlandish plot that saw Jason hop from body to body before being reborn and emerging from beneath a floor as a fully clothed adult – in addition to planting the first seed for Freddy vs. Jason – it’s kind of easy to see why this flick has a cult following.
Now, in preparation for the film’s 25th anniversary, Nick Hunt is directing a new documentary, Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday, which seems pretty self-explanatory. But, if you require a little more information, you should be thrilled to know that Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus – and others – are willing to spill their guts regarding the movie’s production. Who knows, maybe he’ll tell us things that are just as interesting as his stealth reveal of Jason being a Deadite?
In the meantime, Hunt has decided to share a poster for the tell-all flick, which can be viewed below. If you were to ask me, it’s beautiful enough to be used for a comic book adaptation – or at least worthy of adorning a dedicated fan’s wall.

For more, here’s what Hunt himself had to say about this ambitious project:
“Jason Goes to Hell is one of the most highly criticized but highly talked about entries in the entire franchise and in my estimation it took pure balls to make that film. I want this documentary to clear things up and for people to hear it directly out of the horse’s mouth. I want them to hear The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Plus get up-close-and-personal with all of the people that were involved in making the film.”
As of now, this Friday the 13th documentary lacks a concrete release date, but we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
