Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday is a 1993 American slasher film directed by Adam Marcus, produced by Sean S. Cunningham, and starring John D. LeMay, Kari Keegan, Steven Williams, and Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees, reprising his role from the previous two films. It is the first to be distributed by New Line Cinema. The plot follows Jason's spirit, which possesses other people to continue his killings after his death at the FBI's hands, while attempting to return to his original state by possessing a member of his bloodline.
The film was conceived by co-writer and director Marcus under Cunningham, producer/director of the first film. After the low box-office returns of Jason Takes Manhattan, Paramount Pictures sold the character rights of Jason Voorhees to New Line Cinema. Jason Goes to Hell was theatrically released on August 13, 1993, and grossed $15.9 million at the box office on a budget of $3 million, becoming the second-worst performing film in the series, after Jason Takes Manhattan. The film was panned by critics and fans alike, criticizing its supernatural elements and elimination of Jason Voorhees as a physical character. It was followed by Jason X (2001).
