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.
Unable to match the classics in my new 80s slasher discoveries, as thankful as I am to finally see them, I had to return to the Friday the 13th series to breathe life back into me. Part 4 is, for me, one of the best entries in the long running films, but not quite pulling off the magic of the original two. Characters like Teddy and his little computer or unscripted jabs at Jimmy are tiring, but I like everybody else.
Jason is absolutely mean here, twisting half-sawn heads, shredding chests, impaling groins, pinning bodies to tables and doorways (alive and dead) and even crushing faces. The layout of murders is perfect, starting off with three but waiting for the…
-"What do you need and where do you need it?"
-"We got ten of them. Yours is in the barn."
-"What's wrong with him?"
-"He's dead. Yeah, they're all dead. You can pull it up over there."
-"All dead. Some emergency."
The 3. part was great what is good in the genre was in there. This one contains all the bad things in the genre: stupid characters, bad script, wrong actors.
Familiar faces: Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover.
Yeah, "final" right! Check it out for Crispin Glover dancing and nothing else.
It's just - it's the best one. We all know it. I don't know why anyone tries to deny it. This one's the best. It's the weirdest, has the best atmosphere, is the most entertaining, knows when enough is enough with the kills - which are fast as hell and gorier for their brevity - and it's the first one with characters you actually give a shit about.
Speaking of, have you guys seen my corkscrew?
If you like blood baths than you came to the right movie. This movie had a lot of killing in a lot of interesting ways. If you have never seen this movie in 3D than I highly suggest you do because its insane. This is also the movie where Jason gets his killer mask so thats a definitely plus. One of my favorites to the Friday the 13th series.
This installment in the Friday The 13th franchise is actually really good. The fourth film, billed as The Final Chapter, though it really isn't, is still campy, but not as much. More than anything, It's a lot darker in terms of mood at atmosphere, something the previous films have had trouble with. We have Tom Savini returning to do the make-up effects and it's a highlight here. Jason doesn't look like rubber man when the hockey mask is removed, and the kills are quite brutal. It's probably one of the goriest in the franchise.
Most of it really is the same thing, following a group of young kids who are in turn killed off by Jason, albeit this film has…
Final Chapter my ass. This movie is just okay, I mean this movie didn't feel like the last movie in the series but it does have it's enjoyable parts.

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.
