Overview

The fourth film in the Friday the 13th franchise, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. This is a less than spectacular release from Paramount that should appeal almost exclusively to fans of the series.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
With the exception of Kevin Bacon, Corey Feldman is probably the most famous actor ever to grace a Friday the 13th flick, and his precocious performance in Friday the 13th -- The Final Chapter is one of the elements that elevates the film above most of the other installments. The lurid imagery of special-effects artists Tom Savini and Martin Becker don't hurt, nor does Barney Cohen's relatively well-oiled script. Teen comedy antics from Crispin Glover and Lawrence Monoson and the good girl/bad girl combo of Barbara Howard and Judie Aronson give the typically sex-crazed shenanigans of the cast of victims a bit more pull than normal, although Kimberly Beck is just as generic a putative heroine as those found in the earlier installments. Joseph Zito isn't exactly a cinematic stylist, but the director does manage to inject a bit of freshness into the inevitable climactic hunt. The scene in which Feldman's character figuratively "becomes" Jason is among the queasiest moments in the entire series; the killing that occurs immediately afterward is definitely the most enjoyable, as far as such things go. Alas, this wasn't truly "the final chapter" in the saga.

This is one of my favorite Friday 13th sequels. Jason shines in it.

Why is it that they say its the final one but still make more of them even though every single one they can think of that will work will be a waste of film. It goes to show that some people haven't learned but still think that they can make some difference with these kinds of movies. This one has new characters and new victims for Voorhees. Okay movie none the less.

This is the one that tops all the FRIDAY THE 13TH films. Jason is relentless and scary. Great kills (Tom Savini effects), Jason running after last survivor, everything that makes for a great FRIDAY THE 13TH movie.
