"Friday the 13th will be Jason's Un-lucky Day!"
This year will mark the 30th anniversary of "The Final Chapter" and so its very timely to write up a fresh review of this truly landmark horror film. Sure, it was originally going to be the finale of the series, and should have been. Paramount was very tempted to grind out more after seeing the amazing box office of "Final Chapter". What makes this one work so well is #1) Crispin Glover. And, of course the return of the SPFX genius, Tom Savini. The FX are brutal, realistic, and at times shocking. Exactly how a F-13th should be. This sequel was by far the most entertaining,most suspenseful, and bloodiest of them all. Yet again, some scenes had to be trimmed to get an "R" rating. One scene had Jason ripping the corpse of a young nubile who had already been impaled to a door frame. Joseph Zito, a very gifted young director would helm this movie and he keeps it swiftly moving. I can remember seeing it at the theater (yes, no cheating the experience by streaming it, sorry!) The girls and guys in the audience were literally jumping out of their seats. One new character is dumb enough to be 'hunting Jason' but he is no match for Jason (who is played by a towering actor this time around). Enjoy this one as it was meant to be the finale and the 'death' of Jason by a very young Corey Feldman! Also, the girls are as pretty as ever (and so is the nudity) Hey, it was 1984!

"There was a time, back in the day, when the "Friday the 13th" movies were meant to scare you, not make you laugh. No movie in the entire series does this better that "Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter". This is the DEFINITIVE "Friday the 13th" movie.
Part 4 has the best of everything!! Story, cast,(Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Lawrence Monoson), graphic violence, and inventive killings.
Immediately picking up where "Friday the 13th Part 3" (the 2nd best of the series), "Friday the 13th Part 4" was such a brilliant addition to the franchise. For those who haven't seen the series, Part 4 is not a bad place to start, or finish. We get a great little campfire story (courtesy of Part 2) and a lot of great death sequences (from the 3 movies past) within the first 5 minutes. We also get real acting, & actual character development with the "Final Chapter". This was the last movie in the series that was actually made AS a horror film, and not as a cult film. And this movie does scare!
The killings in the "Final Chapter" are original and beautifully executed. Corkscrew to hand-then cleaver to face, spear gun right in the groin (YEAH BABY), banana vomiting, and 2 WONDERFUL crashing through the window sequences (one with twin Tina, the other with Trish) that still manages to frighten me to this day. The shower seen is pretty awesome as well, and even the dog isn't safe in this one! Awesome!!
After Part 4, the franchise became almost a joke, and the films that followed are nothing but camp. They are still good and watch able, but they weren't intended to scare the heck out of ya!
"Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter" does it all, time and time again. This film has gone under rated and without credit for many years. Many people say that the original "Friday the 13th" was the best, but I highly beg to differ. Part 1 WAS the original, but it's somewhat slow paced, and Tom Savini's masterful special effects are much more evident in Part 4. Tom was really on top of his game by the time "The Final Chapter" went into production.
Part 1 has the scariest ending, I'll give it that.
If you want to see Jason at his peak, when he was a total bad-boy and really did some butt kicking, then look no further than this classic film in horror cinema!
This really was "The Final Chapter"; in more ways than one.
The Best Friday Movie

"This is by far the best Friday the 13th movie of them all. If you only buy one out of the group, make it this one. I can remember when this movie hit the theaters. I was there on opening night. There were so many people in the theater that the ushers had to keep coming in to advise everyone to move over towards the right to allow more people in. Once the movie actually started the opening scenes were all flashbacks to previous Friday movies which caused the audience to scream at every scene. This sent the theater manager into action. They actually stopped the film and turned the lights on. The manager came down front and made a statement. He stated that if we didn't keep down the screaming that they would stop the movie and ask everyone to leave. I guess the theaters on each side of ours were complaining that we were too loud. That was awesome! This movie is great, forget the fact that this is the fourth in a franchise that has some bad entries. A great movie from the greatest of eras regarding the horror genre."
