With its move to New Line Cinema, the Friday the 13th franchise has dropped the “Friday the 13th” from the title. That seems entirely appropriate given that Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday barely feels like a Friday the 13th movie at all. Instead, this is a movie about magic and body swapping that invents all sorts of new things about the character they call Jason Voorhees despite the fact that Jason is barely in the movie at all.
Does this new spin on the character work either as a continuation of the series (which was already getting increasingly bizarre) or as a standalone movie with few connections to previous films? Listen as chris and Joey discuss this and more in night nine of The Last Theater on the Left’s marathon of 13 daily podcasts dedicated to the entirety of the Friday the 13th franchise!
