Overview

Hockey-masked killer Jason Vorhees returns to terrorize a lakeside family and their rowdy teen neighbors in this fourth installment of the long-running slasher series. After the events of Friday the 13th, Part 3, Jason's seemingly lifeless body is brought to the morgue, where horny attendant Axel Bruce Mahler is trying to score with foxy Nurse Morgan Lisa Freeman. The pair quickly meet a grisly end. Meanwhile, at Crystal Lake, estranged wife Mrs. Jarvis Joan Freeman and her kids -- young Tommy Corey Feldman and teenaged Trish Kimberly Beck -- find their quiet invaded by a group of hard-partying kids moving into the rental house next door. The youngsters include curious virgin Sara Barbara Howard, hot-to-trot Samantha Judie Aronson, and nebbish Jimmy Crispin Glover. Tommy, a monster makeup enthusiast, enjoys watching the scantily clad young ladies through his window, while Trish toys with the idea of joining in their revelries. Also lurking around the area is Rob Erich Anderson, who claims to be hunting bear but actually has mysterious ties to the events of Friday the 13th, Part 2. As the house full of teens begins to pair off -- aided by the addition of local twins Tina Camilla More and Terri Carey More to the mix -- an unseen killer begins to pick them off one by one. The bloodshed climaxes with a tense showdown in which Tommy disguises himself as a bald, lumpy boyhood version of Jason in hopes of distracting the relentless psychopath who hunts him. Feldman would return for a cameo in Friday the 13th, Part V: A New Beginning, only to be replaced by another actor in a grown-up version of the role.

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.

    FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 4 is the BEST in the entire series!!!

    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.

    Friday the 13th 4

    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.
