Want to learn more about the making of Friday the 13th’s Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday? Then this upcoming documentary is for you.
The horror genre is full of mysteries, and there are some very interesting stories behind every movie that are not always revealed… until someone decides to make a documentary about it. The beauty of documentaries focused on other movies is that they share never before seen footage, pics, and a couple of behind-the-scenes secrets – and if it’s a documentary on a “controversial” movie, the better. Like, let’s say, Friday the 13th‘s Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday.
Like many other franchises not only in the horror genre but in cinema in general, Friday the 13th has some entries fans choose to forget and others that can fall into the category of “so bad they are actually good” (no shame, I would place Freddy vs Jason in that category).
Jason Goes to Hell‘s crime was turning Jason Voorhees into a spirit that takes possession of a coroner to continue with his killing sprees. It’s definitely one of the weakest movies of the franchise, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some behind the scenes magic to share.
A campaign for a documentary on Jason Goes To Hell can now be found on Indiegogo. The project is currently on pre-launch, so you’ll have to sign up to receive updates and a notice when the campaign officially launches. The documentary is titled Hearts of Darkness: The Making of the Final Friday, and promises to tell the “story behind the most controversial entry in horror’s biggest franchise”. Quite intriguing, to be honest.
As mentioned above, Jason Goes to Hell has been panned for its plot, which makes the documentary all the more interesting. Hey, who wouldn’t like to know what was going on behind cameras in a movie like this?
And if they can share some secrets on that particular surprise at the end, the better. Besides, it’s always fun and interesting to learn the inspirations, motivations, obstacles, and more that production teams go through while making a movie.
Who knows, it might offer some deep insight that could make viewers change their minds about the movie. Anything is possible.
