JASON GOES TO HELL Director Confirms That Jason Is A Deadite!

Our beloved hero Ash Williams better watch out, Jason is on the opposite team and apparently has been for some time! Check out the news below. 

We know that the flames for the Friday the 13th franchise will never die but one idea did, Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash. That film may never see the light of day like horror fans want…or could it?

In a new interview with Horror Geek LifeJason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus reveals that the fan desire to see such a title is built upon an amazing bit of mythology that he helped create. Put into the most simple of terms, Jason is a Deadite!

Here’s how it all went down, according to Marcus:

“I was populating [Jason Goes to Hell] with Easter eggs, and at that time I was on set while writing the script, and spending time with Bob Kurtzman for The Evil Dead part 3 [Army of Darkness]. I had become friendly with Sam Raimi, so much so that he had shot several commercials in LA and I had hung out with him on set. Sam’s an amazing guy, and one of my heroes. So while I was there, I asked Sam if I could borrow the Necronomicon to put into my movie. Sam gave a bewildered “Why?!” and I explained the story. I was trying to create a mythology for Jason in this movie, because it had driven me nuts as a viewer.

“…at the end of [Friday the 13th] – because [Sean Cunningham] wanted to rip off Carrie, since it was a huge success – he thought, wouldn’t it be great if the kid leaps out of the water and grabs the girl? It ended up being the best scare in the movie. Here’s the thing though, he never thought they were going to make a series of movies about the kid in the lake. Cut to several months later and Alice from the first movie is in her home and this full-size man (who was a boy two months ago) murders her- I know for me I was only twelve when part two came out, and even as a kid myself, I asked “What? Why isn’t it a boy, and how did he live for thirty years in a lake?”

“So what I told Sam was “I think it’s more fun if I have the Necronomicon in Pamela Voorhees’ house. She makes a deal with the devil by reading from the Necronomicon to bring back her son. This is why Jason isn’t Jason. He’s Jason plus The Evil Dead,” and now I can believe that he can go from a little boy that lives in a lake, to a full grown man in a couple of months, to Zombie Jason, to never being able to kill this guy.

“Raimi loved it! He literally went and picked up the book, put it in a plastic bag and told me to put it in the movie. So only Sam, myself, and Bob Kurtzman ever knew that was my agenda. It’s not like I could tell New Line my plan to include The Evil Dead, because they don’t own The Evil Dead.

“So yes, in my opinion, Jason Voorhees is a Deadite. He’s one of The Evil Dead.

So there you have it! If we’re to accept all the strange things that have happened over the Friday the 13th series as canon, then we can now say without a shadow of a doubt in our minds that Jason Voorhees lives in the same universe as The Evil Dead!

Now lets make this flick happen already!
