Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: R

Jason Voorhees, the big bad guy with the hockey mask who likes killing teens, is back for the ninth time.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Three topless girls; a couple of male and female naked posteriors. A teen couple is having sex in a tent, before being impaled. Two women are shown urinating (we hear trickling).

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - Lots of blood and gore, as Jason is leisurely blown to smithereens, while various charred and severed body parts are shown in close-ups, and a man eats a beating heart. Also, lots of graphic violence as many people are impaled, beheaded, slashed and chopped. A woman getting into her car gets her head slammed in the door and a man is shown strapped to a table, about to be tortured with a razor (nothing is actually shown). One character agrees to have two fingers broken, one at a time, slowly. Jason keeps spitting black slime into people's mouths, and a slithering alien makes an appearance.

PROFANITY 7 - A grand total of 29 F-words and numerous other profanities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Premarital sex, serial killers, lunacy, the occult.

MESSAGE - Don't go into dark places alone.

Special Keywords: S6 - V9 - P7 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
