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…
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.
I was very nearly excited about this one. Crispin Glover (the dad from "Back To The Future") and Corey Feldman (Billy's friend in "Gremlins" and one of the neighbours in "The 'Burbs") are both starring in this, which seemed like a good sign. (Recognisable actors? Really?) And admittedly there does seem to be a real subplot with the characters in this one. Sadly not a terribly good one, in spite of a brilliant performance from Crispin Glover. The biggest problem is that the whole side-plot with the- well, not even campers, just people who've turned up around the lake- is that it jars with the whole main premise of the film of a supernatural murderer coming to kill them. They…
i just couldn't bring myself to care about any of these characters???
Friday The 13th The Final Chapter is one of my favourite Friday films. The Story is Jason is believed to be dead so he is taken to a morgue, however he comes back to life (what a shocker!) and goes back to his hunting ground 'Camp Crystal Lake' to kill some teenagers.
Acting 3/5 Story 2/5 Enjoyment 4/5 Overall I love this movie,pop it in every Halloween Overall 4/5
Definitely my favorite FT13th entry. For once this sequel doesn't begin with the climax from the previous film (it begins right after it, where Jason's restless 'corpse' is taken to the hospital) and gets things off to a better start. Tom Savini worked on this, so the kills are incredibly gruesome, but very well done. Corey Feldman proves to be the only worthy adversary of Jason, and a young and incredibly goofy Crispin Glover flails about as he 'dances.' Totally worth checking out.

Corey Feldman !
The fourth film in the Friday the 13th franchise is basically exactly the same as the first three films, with Jason returning from the dead (or the not quite dead) to head back to Crystal Lake and stab another group of horny teenagers to death for no particular reason.
But despite the gratuitous nudity and lack of any real plot, I still didn't totally hate it. It at least avoids the kind of idiotic twists that the Halloween sequels used to explain why Michael Myers is an unstoppable force and the effects are quite well done too.
I wouldn't exactly recommend watching it, but it's not completely awful.

Full disclosure: I'm much more of a Michael Myers kinda guy. There's more mood to a Halloween movie than the ch-ch-ch-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh's in the F13 series. Sure, Tom Savini's great at what he does but these films are so alike I can never remember if I've seen it. The only one I can remember is part 3, because it was in 3-D.
Crispin Glover's got some fresh moves but beyond that it's your standard slasher, with some mediocre kills.
Similar to previous installments of the franchise, I don't have much to say about Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter. The presence of Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover at least lends a bit more interest to the cast than other series entries, but the characters are still uninteresting overall. I will admit that adding the Jarvis family next door to the house full of horny teenagers made things a tad more engrossing. It was just nice to have some different types of characters for a change. Specifically, a child (Feldman) being in danger mixed things a little bit. Past that, however, The Final Chapter is yet another series of mindless death scenes of varying originality, and that's about it.
The first in the series to succeed directorially, The Final Chapter suffers from the most basic kills in the original Jason saga, and one oddball of an ending. Though, those basic kills do look mighty gruesome and the acting is above-par for the franchise. If only they could keep each other from jumping out of windows.
