Late last year, we brought news of a Friday the 13th documentary in the works, one that focuses on one of the franchise’s most controversial installments; The Dark Heart of Jason Voorhees: The Making of the Final Friday is being produced by Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus.
Per Dread Central:
“I am thrilled to have been approached by Nick Hunt and Black Heart Productions to tell the story of the making of Jason Goes to Hell,” Adam Marcus tells us. “I’m looking forward to getting the chance to illustrate the journey of my first film and to hopefully set the record straight on all the controversies surrounding the movie. I can say for myself and my Skeleton Crew partners, Debra Sullivan and Bryan Sexton that we are ‘happier than a little girl in a pink dress pushing a hot dog through a donut’ to be collaborating with Nick and Black Heart to bring this documentary to life.”
