Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

MPAA Rating: R

Details Rated: R; Genre: Horror; With: Kane Hodder

No such luck. While the Nightmare on Elm Street movies possess a sick yet clever surrealism, and the first Halloween was at least well crafted, the Friday the 13th series has always been the cut-rate horror franchise, offering barely functional sex-and-slash pitched straight at the moron brigade. Jason Goes to Hell varies the formula a bit, with ideas swiped from The Terminator, The Hidden, and Alien, but after nine installments the impalements and dismemberments all look the same. So go to hell already, Jason — and take Sean Cunningham, the ''brains'' behind this dreck, with you. F
