FRIDAY THE 13 PART 4: THE FINAL CHAPTER

Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter Movie Review

Jason once again wreaks havoc on vacationing youngsters near Camp Crystal Lake. For the first time in the series, Jason is now superhuman--having been pronounced dead and taken to the morgue, he comes back to life. He’s bigger and stronger than in the third installment, as he's now able to walk through solid wood doors. Still, I’m not quite ready to call jump the shark on the series yet--this is still a good installment. The acting is considerably better than the third part (Corey Feldman notwithstanding), led by Crispin Glover (Back To The FutureWillard) as Jim. This movie is worth a watch just to see Glover’s dancing scene.

Priceless

Lawrence Monoson, who went on to have a successful career as a television actor, is also good as Ted, making a character that you shouldn’t like, quite likable. There are plenty of killings in this one, but several death scenes cut away before getting too gory. There are also some unintentional laughable moments throughout, such as seeing an actress, after jumping out of an upstairs window, land on a padded ground. Of course this was billed as The Final Chapter, and I remember as a kid watching it and actually believing that, thinking there is no way Jason is coming back from this—how wrong I was.
