Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday has been given a booster-shot of relevance following the announcement that a tell-all documentary is in the works. This follows previous revelations from director Adam Marcus that Jason Voorhees is a deadite, linking the Friday the 13th franchise to The Evil Dead (though not all fans ascribe to this assertion).

Love it or hate it, Jason Goes to Hell is the most unique installment in the Friday franchise (except, perhaps, for the series’ “black sheep” A New Beginning). Jason’s ability to transfer bodies and his eventual banishment to Hell are two examples of what makes Marcus’s Friday so original. A standout, though, is the inclusion of Creighton Duke (played by Steven Williams).
In a recent Facebook Q&A, Marcus was asked about Creighton’s origin story, specifically his obsession with assassinating Jason Voorhees. Here’s how he replied:
“Here’s what happened. A teenage Creighton was out on Crystal Lake with his girlfriend. Jason capsized their small boat and pulled the girl down into the lake. Creighton tried to save her but could not. She was never seen again. Creighton vowed revenge and from that moment on he spent his life in the study and pursuit of Jason. He became a bounty hunter just to fund his work in taking down his nemesis. That’s the story.”
We’ll keep you posted on the Jason Goes to Hell documentary as details emerge. In the meantime, you can peep the trailer and synopsis for the movie below.
Official Synopsis: After being blown away by a team of FBI agents, Jason Voorhees (Kane Hodder) needs to find a way to overcome certain death. When his bloodied remains are sent to the morgue, his heart, still intact, is able to hypnotize a coroner and take over his body. After brutally dispatching a couple of FBI agents, he heads back to his favorite stomping grounds: Crystal Lake. Jason commences another teen massacre while a bounty hunter (Steven Williams) discovers the only way to kill him.
