334) Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

334) Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) Dir: Adam Marcus Date Released: August 1993 Date Seen: October 10, 2009 Rating: 2/5

There are these Brian Yuzna-ian hiccups of comically over-the-top violence in Jason Goes to Hell that make it hard to resist but they're hardly indicative of what the rest of the film's like. Though it's probably the most narratively adventurous of the Friday the 13th films I've seen, it's also just as sloppy, bland and aimless. But for those moments when it looks like the filmmakers had studied Yuzna's Society or even Herman Yau's Ebola Syndrome for clues on how to succeed in horror without really giving a fuck about logic or good taste! Those make me swoon with delight. Especially the beginning sequence, the thumb-breaking scene and the bit at the end where Jason topples over a jungle gym. Be still my sleazy heart.
