For fans of Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), you may have already heard there is a documentary on the way just for you. The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday is being directed by Nicholas Hunt (Safe Place) and produced by Jason Goes to Hell director himself, Adam Marcus, alongside Debra Sullivan, Bryan Sexton, Skeleton Crew Productions and Johnny Macabre (Crepitus). This documentary will bring you a behind the scenes look at the making of The Final Friday.
The “final” movie in the series was controversial due to the fact that we finally see the reason why Jason is un-killable. The last Voorhees descendant must fight Jason and end him lest he become truly immortal and unable to be stopped. It stars John D. LeMay, Kari Keegan, Steven Williams, Steven Culp and the incomparable Kane Hodder as Jason himself.
From the press release:
“Through interviews and behind the scenes details, you will understand the unique landscape the series was in at the time, having just changed studios and already being on the road to the eventual “Freddy vs Jason” film which wouldn’t see release for another 8 years. You will see the unusual hand Adam Marcus was dealt and the immense pressure and scrutiny which was placed on him during production. And you will see genre greats, both who were in the film and not, weigh in on Jason’s journey to hell. In “Jason Goes to Hell”, you learned secrets about Jason you never knew before! In “The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees,” you will understand what was and what could have been about The Final Friday!”
And just released was the amazing new poster for The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday created by artist, horror writer and filmmaker Chris Fischer. The poster has a very retro feel and it looks amazing. The documentary could start filming as early as the 2nd or 3rd quarter of this year. If that’s the case, we could see the finished product as early as the end of 2018!
