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?
“I got something real neat to show you up in my bedroom.”
“Jason is back. He moves like a shadow, dark and silent. He never utters a word. He doesn’t even seem to breathe. He simply, mindlessly, mercilessly kills.” So intones a stentorian voice in the trailer for Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter. Jason, who began the series as a child long since dead before mutating through passing resemblances to Norman Bates and Leatherface and Michael Myers, has now become the shark from Jaws. The trailer’s pronouncement, while cynically selling the end of the Friday the 13th cycle while all involved knew full well they were setting up a new set of stories, is positioned as a selling point.…
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.
With "Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter," the series finally gets a touch of story to go along with its hacking and slashing storytelling. It is not much, but it is enough of a narrative charge to make this film the strongest entry, thus far, in the franchise. This final chapter still provides the rough and gory charms of the first three films, but it combines those charms with a healthy dose of madness, atmosphere, and tension.
Once again, a gaggle of semi-irresponsible college-age youths find themselves on the shores of a notorious lake; and, once again, they are knocked off in gruesome manners with even more gruesome implements. This time, however, there is a note of mystery in the…
Fourth film in the series is still fun, but I may be growing a bit weary of it all. Good thing this is the final chapter. Oh, wait...
Friday the 13th part 4 AKA "The Final Chapter" AKA "Not the final chapter because there's a heap load of films to come after this but oh well"
The film picks up after part 3, and is yet again about a bunch of kids that get terrorised by Jason who was killed in part 3. And I can say this film is A LOT better than part 3, the characters are likeable, genuine and down to earth compared to the characters in part 3.
The story is as you'd expect, pretty much the same, but the characters make the film interesting, I'm not saying its a masterpiece but its enjoyable.
Plus Jason gets completely over killed at the end, its good to see Corey Feldman's character actually using his brain and making it 100% impossible for Jason to return, or so you'd think. Its like the directer has said enough is enough, I'm killing this franchise by killing Jason.
I can't yet safely tell you if this is my favorite entry in the franchise, given i haven't watched these in a long time. I'm recognizing new things that i never noticed when watching these movies growing up. But for now, this is by far my favorite entry, that actually improves on the impressive Part 2.
So this movie continues where Part 3 left off. It's night, and noticeably long after part 2, so fuck knows when this is supposed to take place. Probably a Sunday. Maybe a Monday. Either way, Jason's body is taken to a morgue and for some reason i can't quite put my finger on, it becomes noticeable that the viewer is going to be in…
BOOOM. Great Friday the 13th flick!
#Venerdì13Capitolofinale è disperatamente identico a tutti gli altri. Ma la regia è meno grezza e il mix fra sangue e sesso funziona sempre.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Four down, 8 more to go...Final Chapter my ass.
The fact that there are 8 more films in the franchise to go, I doubt that this is the "final" chapter. In comparison to the third film, at least this film doesn't use shitty 3D and is mildly entertaining. Jason really likes to hunt down teenagers to kill, and I believe he will never, ever stop.
How come no one was able to kill Jason before, but once a child (not a young adult) makes an attempt, he succeeds? That makes absolutely no sense. Then again, neither does the fact that Jason survived that axe to the head. And again, WHAT IS WITH ALL THESE INTRODUCTION FLASHBACKS! I'm tired of them,…
The first one of these films to feel populated by real actors who can actually act, thus making it rise to a level of mostly boring mediocrity. Not as entertainingly goofy as the first three, with the filmmakers just barely trying to make it passable as a movie about a camp in the woods (the lake houses are just transplanted suburban homes, making it feel like almost every other suburban slasher movie of the era). More loose ends than normal in this one (Mom? Gordon?), but the added dynamic of a family and a kid changed it up a tiny bit. Feldman and Glover are okay, but this is definitely the least scary of the four.
Ah Corey, Crazy Corey
Plus The Sweet Strangely Erotic Dancing of Crispin Glover
oh and some dude with a mask, but that's bush-league compare to Crispin Glover's dancing.
Who knew teddy went through this as a kid.
This was meant to be the final chapter yet they made six more movies, a crossover and a remake (its all about the money) anyway who cares, of course Friday the 13th the final chapter is flawed but it has some awesome kills and a good cast unlike most entries in the Friday the 13th franchise.
I started with a top 10 list and decided what the hell lets see how far I can go. Top…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
