It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter
Jason's Back, and this is the one you've been screaming for.
After the Crystal Lake Massacres, Jason is pronounced dead and taken to the hospital morgue, where he is mysteriously revived, allowing his diabolical killing spree to continue at the camp where the gruesome slaughtering began. But this time, in addition to terrified teenagers, he meets a young boy named Tommy who has a special talent for horror masks and make up, leading up to a horrifying, bloody battle! Has Jason finally met his match?
What can I possibly say about this? Jason comes back to life and slaughters a load of youngsters who - let's face it - deserve it!
The effects were very good and done by Tom Savini, and the kills were satisfying enough. The film was a little too overly focused on tits though.
I remember criticizing the remake because Jason runs in it and Jason does not run! Well looks like I was wrong as he runs in this one. Oh well - we all make mistakes.
A satisfactory 6/10
Jesus Christmas! Holy Jesus! Goddamn! Holy Jesus jumping Christmas shit!
If anyone tells you that the original Friday the 13th film is the best one, and that the rest are crap clearly must be crazy. Or they might just be a little more nostalgic towards the first entry. Either way, as a long time fan of the franchise, most people are shocked to hear that I actually don't think that well of the first film. Its slow. Its not scary. There is no buildup, the characters are awful, the only good part is the ending, etc etc. Some people also think it sucks because Jason isn't in it but I think that's a ridiculous reason, personally. But I do agree…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Corey Feldman. A cool dog. The random luck of finding ready and willing twins. Naked fun at the lake. A guy named Teddy Bear. McFly's daddy's future coming true. Rob out to avenge his sister. Trish & Sam lookin smokin' hot. Sarah losing more than her V-card. Jason sorta dying. The best cast of the first 4 films.
Easily one of the very best of the series, if not the best.
The young characters are likeable and highly relatable (possibly due to the screenplay being written by a former AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL writer), and it adds the intriguing element of a (also highly sympathetic) single-parent family, including bad-ass final girl Trish (Kimberly Beck) and her little brother Tommy (Corey Feldman!) Plus, Crispin Glover and his weird dance moves!
Like Parts 2 and 3, the last 20 minutes or so of THE FINAL CHAPTER are a suspenseful, gritty, exceptionally well-done extended chase sequence/battle between Jason (played by the alarmingly imposing Ted White) and the sibling duo, during (of course) a scary thunderstorm, followed by a VERY memorable Jason death. Bottom line: this movie is a blast.

So this movie is called "Friday the 13th : The Final Chapter" but there are 12 movies in the serie?
Great (well… okay) improvement from the 3D one, it was more scary, and shit load of nudity. I found it perhaps funnier than the other ones. And the ending was different than the usual lone girl running everywhere. Bit more entertaining and unpredictable.
My sister and I can't wait for the Friday the 13th in space.
Easily the best one so far. Decently written characters and interesting subplots bolstered by some fantastic kill scenes, the sort of thing you want from a slasher movie. Nothing spectacular though, the series is still lagging behind the best of the rival Elm Street and Halloween franchises.
I was never really a fan of the series, I like the look of the character Jason but the films or kinda boring after a while and all the sequels feel the same to me. Love the dance of Crispin Clover's character though!
Standard slasher fare, but mostly entertaining with some great kills scattered around. The final ten minutes are chilling.
Tom savini's special effects are the only reason this movie is watchable
Wish I could make a case for something interesting – the moderator noted that the film is interesting because it features two houses for Jason to wreak havoc upon, and I immediately started to think that the houses would mirror Western and Soviet ideals, with Jason as an equalizer of sorts - but there’s nothing here. The two houses allow for double the victims, Jason punishing the sexually promiscuous before moving on to sedate old people like Tommy’s mother. Handful of offbeat happenings: a primitive computer telling Crispin Glover that he’s bad at sex, the reels of silent era porno, Corey Feldman’s collection of handmade masks – and most of all, the out of sync dance-off with Glover flapping manically. But such weirdness can be found in any 80’s Jason sequel, and a lot of this is really shoddy. Thinking Jason Lives is a diamond in the rough.
I Like 1984's Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter, I Like It Because It Just Turned 30 Years Old This Year In 2014.
Amazing sequel and should of ended here. Corey Feldman as Tommy Jarvis amazing.
