Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday trivia picture

Trivia: When Steven is in Jason's house, we see the "Necronomicon", or "Book of the Dead" from the "Evil Dead" movies. He even picks up the book and flips through it. The director has said this is because Jason is a deadite, as his mother made a pact with the devil to bring him back from the dead.

Trivia: This is the only Friday The 13th Film, First (1980) to X, or the 10th (2001), that Jason's face isn't seen.

Suggested correction: This is not the only movie where Jason's face is never shown. In Friday The 13th: A New Beginning Jason's face is never shown either.

Trivia: Not only does Kane Hodder, who playes Jason, play the role of 1 of the F.B.I. agents at the morgue, it is also Kane Hodder's hand wearing the Freddy Krueger glove that comes out of the ground to grab Jason's hockey mask at the end of the movie.


Trivia: Kane Hodder, who played Jason in parts 7-X also makes an appearance in this movie as one of the two FBI agents who gets killed by the possessed coroner.

Trivia: The camping scene with the ill-fated Luke, Deborah and Alexis, was not part of the original script. When test audiences in early 1993 complained about the lack of sex and teenaged characters, the scene was subsequently written and filmed during a new shoot.


Trivia: Kane Hodder, who portrays Jason, was severely burned over much of his body during a stunt-gone-wrong some years prior to this film, and as a result, the skin of his body (other than his head and face) is somewhat discolored and disfigured. One day after filming, he was peeling the Jason costume and makeup off his body, when the young child of a crew-member (who had been brought to set to see what it was like to make a movie) became frightened of his burned skin. Hodder calmly and sweetly picked up and hugged the child, explained that his body "just looked a bit different" but was nothing to be afraid of, and let the child touch the skin on his arm to see that it wouldn't hurt him. The child immediately calmed down and had a fun time talking to Hodder. It was seeing this that made director Adam Marcus (and later hearing that Hodder spent much of his free time volunteering at children's hospitals) realize that despite often playing violent or evil characters, Hodder "had a heart of gold."

Trivia: The actor who plays Steven Freeman in this movie, John D. LeMay, previously played Ryan Dallion in the "Friday The 13th" TV series.

Trivia: The county the movie takes place in is Cunningham County, perhaps in honor of the director of the original Friday, Sean Cunningham.

Revealing mistake: If you watch closely, it is painfully obvious that in the beginning, when Jason is getting shot up, they are just repeating the same shot from different angles.

Question: Before taking possession of Deputy Josh, why did Jason shave off the mustache?

Answer: There isn't much of a feasible in-movie explanation. In truth, the entire scene was added by the director because he felt the movies were pretty sexist in that it was mostly women who were either nude or sexualized. Thus, he added an inherently homo-erotic sequence involving one man shaving another stripped man to "level the playing field" so-to-speak. The only real explanation I could think of is that maybe the creature just thought it'd feel uncomfortable transferring to a man with a mustache. But even that's shaky at best.
