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.

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.

The Final Chapter has one of the most intense chase scenes in the history of horror films with Kimberly Beck as the heroine trying to escape Jason's clutches and Corey Feldman using a more psychological approach to defeat him. The Final Chapter has Jason in his scariest form and Crystal Lake looks great in the midst of a rainstorm which helps set the tone and atmosphere of chaos to come. The best acting is supplied by Kimberly Beck, everyone else is mediocre to poor but the suspense and thrills are all there. This would also mark the end of the deformed "man-like" Jason before he ended up as a zombie-type who could not be killed. I would recommend all the Friday films produced at Paramount. Once the 80s were over and New Line took the reins, the franchise was never the same.

Here are the details for the new Deluxe Edition:

Audio commentary by director Joseph Zito, screenwriter Barney Cohen and editor Joel Goodman
* Fan commentary by Adam Green and Joe Lynch
* Slashed scenes
* The Lost Ending
* Jason's Unlucky Day: 25 Years After FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER
* Lost Tales from Camp Blood--Part IV
* The Crystal Lake Massacres Revisited--Part I
* Jimmy's Dead Dance Moves
* Original theatrical trailer

The Friday the 13th films have always interested me. The movies themselves are scary but yet are devoid of a real plot,hammered by an extremely low budget,and have really no character development at all. But for some reason, people don't seem to mind this. The movies are entertaining enough,and having a very low budget only seems to make the movies feel more creepy. In Friday the 13th-The Final Chapter (yeah right!) there really isn't much more to add if you've seen the first 3 films. You know Jason is going to rise from the grave and kill some teenagers (or rather people in their mid 20's playing teenagers),and you know there is going to be a lot of gory, grisly deaths.
Makeup master Tom Savini returned for the last time in the series to create the films extermely disturbing death scenes. Young Corey Feldman appears as Tommy Jarvis, a 12 year old obsessed with video games and creating his own monster masks and makeup. When a group of teenagers rent the house next door to the Jarvis family, Jason returns to Crystal Lake to kill everyone. That's pretty much it plot wise, you see dumb teenagers going outside in the middle of the night by themselves to take a little midnight swim (take a guess at what happens to them..) This movie is a horror movie and follows the formula of dumb characters doing dumb things, but that's all part of the fun with these type of films, guessing how and who's going to die next.
The DVD itself is extremely disapointing with the bonus material being nothing more than a lame theatrical trailer. Even the transfer is a total let down. Has it improved from the VHS version of the movie? Sure, but not much. The image quality is in terms pathetic on how the movie could look compared to other films that have been digitally remastered. The sound is even worse.

F13 IV : Deluxe Edition?
If we're just talking DVDs, there's a bare-bones edition for every movie in the series with trailers only; then there's a Camp Crystal Lake Box Set with a bonus disc of extras, and then there's the Deluxe Edition DVDs of each movie. I have noticed the quality of picture/sound improving with each... Read More

2 Hockey Masks in The Final Chapter
Red arrow, gray arrow. One of them also had a lot of scuffing on the nose.

Blu Ray release date?
That would be so awesome to have the rest of the F13 Deluxe Editions on Blu-Ray! I hate when a company starts to convert them and stops when half done. Same thing goes for New Line!

Friday the 13th remake.
I dunno I dont think its meant to be takent that seriously. Movies like Rob Zombies halloween are not meant to be an actual addition to the series but are designed more for nostalgia than anything. I actually enjoyed that one. Seeing him as a kid and how he got pushed over the edge was pretty... Read More
