FRIDAY THE THIRTEETH PART IV: THE FINAL CHAPTER

Director: Joesph Zito

U.S.A.| 1984. COLOUR. 35MM. 90 MIN.


Despite the false advertising of the title, this is seen by many as the best entry in the long-running series, if not one of the best ‘slasher’ flicks ever. It marked the introduction of humour as a major element to the story, breathing fresh life into a genre now grown stale again through the overuse of irony. The plot, however, remains as reliably flimsy as before. Following on immediately from the ending of its predecessor, the film finds Jason Voorhees escaping from a morgue and once again slicing and dicing a group of frisky teens on the shores of Crystal Lake. Originally intended to mark the death of Jason, the film goes all out to kill the kids in new and gorier-than-before ways – a goal that’s successfully achieved thanks to make-up wizard Tom Savini. The presence of Corey Feldman and a great comic turn from Crispin Glover ensures some star power in this enjoyable entry in the franchise.
