We have taken some photos of "Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter". They represent actual movie quality.
Just like part 3 this is a really good sequel in the Friday the 13th series. And actually not just another exact copy of part 1. Jason terrorises a group of teenage friends staying near the now closed down Camp Crystal Lake as well as a family living across the street from the unlucky teens. Corey Feldman stars in an early role as the 12 year old son of the family who is eventually left to defend himself against Jason, along with the traditional Last Girl (called so becuase these movies tend to start with a group of living teenagers and end with a group of dead teenagers and one living teenager, usually female) by the end. Like part 3 there is a pretty suspencefull chase scene in near the end. I think Jason looks really freaky in this one when he is unmasked. Probably the best of the sequels so far.
All great things must come to an end, and in 1984 Paramount felt it wastime for this to pass for the popular 'Friday the 13th' series. Number4 in the series had all the right stuff to make not only another greatslasher flick, but also a fitting end to the series. We saw the returnof Tom Savini for special effects, a return to Camp Crystal Lake, theaddition of a horror buff to go up against ol' Jason, and a title thatguaranteed this to be the series swan song, but was it? Pros: Though unnecessary, the opening recap of the previous movies isreally well put together. Another good, likable cast. Has some of thebloodiest and most memorable kills in the series. Great effects by TomSavini as usual. A decent amount of good humor. For a man who wasuncomfortable in the role, Ted White was pretty good at being a scaryJason. Fast-paced for the most part. A good score that combines classicstuff with some chilling new themes. An exciting and scary final 10-11minutes.Cons: Aside from the addition of a kid, this one is pretty much arehash of it's predecessors. Pace drags just little bit in the middle.A couple really major plot holes, like Jason's look, which is reallyinconsistent with the previous two sequels.Final thoughts: Had they really only done 4 'Friday the 13th' movies itwouldn't have been bad at all. Each one is great in it's own right andthey compliment each other well. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn'tglad they opted to continue the series for years to come. But that's awhole story in itself.My rating: 4/5
I find it funny that instead of calling this movie Part 4 it was named the final chapter. Not only did more sequels follow but this movie is actually a trilogy tied in with part 5 & 6 as a previous reviewr mentioned. Why is that? Simply becuase of the character Tommy Jarvis. Anyway, on with the review. Part 4, as I like to call it, gives somewhat more of a storyline. Here we have the Jarvis family...mainly 12 year old Tommy Jarvis who live right next to Camp Crystal Lake. Corey Feldman does a good job playing Tommy and is the most likable character in the whole movie. Part 4 is mainly a slasher flick up until Jason goes for the Jarvis family and things get personal. As I said earlier, Part 4 does tie in with part 5 & 6 but unfortunately part 5 was a real stinker. I strongly suggest skipping Part 5 and moving on to Part 6. You WILL NOT miss out by avoiding Part 5.
THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL END TO THE SERIES WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT END.IT HAS THE USUAL SEX CRAZED TEENAGERS GETTING HOCKED OFF BY MY FAV JASON.BUY IT NOW IT'S A GREAT MOVIE
This review is from: Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (Deluxe Edition) (DVD) For me, this is simply the best Friday The 13th ever! I own the previous DVD release of this, but this Delux version is the must-buy!If you like extras they are here. 2 commentaries (1 screenwriter/editor and 1 fan commentary) deleted scenes/outtakes (Crispin Glover is hilarious with his dance death scene). The Lost Ending is an alternate ending that shows how different it could have been. The Making Of was very interesting and probably the best extras feature. The Crystal Lake Massacres is like an amaeture documentary ala Blair Witch only not as good, pretty lame. Lost Tales Of Camp Crystal Lake Part 4 (this is weird cause I have the Delux edition of 3-D and there isn't a part 3 there so who knows where the first three parts are and why they would be out of order). Jimmy's dead dance moves is hilarious! Crispin Glover cracks me up here! Jason's Unluky Day - 25 years later is a nice recap on this movie.Ok, extras aside this film is the best in the Friday The 13th's for me. Part 3 comes close and Freddy vs Jason & the remake of Friday are nice and all, but this part is top notch. I think the casting was perfect for this film, from having two stars like Crispin Glover and Corey Feldman to the others who are relatively unknown, but all did good jobs. The death scenes are amazing, spooky and the visuals of this film just beat out any of the other Fridays easily. This Delux edition is a must-buy for the quality alone (like the other Delux editions these are far superior to their original releases). The extras are just gravy to having the movie remastered so well. I wouldn't even suggest renting this movie. GO BUY IT! NOW!
Everybody who doesn't like the Friday the 13th movies are always askingthe same question: "Why can't Jason die?".I say: "Who Cares?".Just havefun and enjoy all of the gore and death that the Friday films offer.Thefact that Jason can't die makes the series interesting and fun towatch,so people really need to loosen up and have a good time.I can'tsay that the Friday films are as good as the Halloween films,since Ithink that Michael Myers is a little more interesting.Besides,Michaelhas more good movies and none of them were bad,except part 3 which hadnothing to do with Michael.But anyway,I think that 'The Final Chapter'was a very well done sequel,despite all of the negative reviews.
Does Jas throw the dog out of the window, or does the dog jump outbecause Jas scared him so? This is a pretty decent entry in the seriesbut I've always been confused over the doggy incident. This is one ofthe few movies that actually kills off a dog. Usually, the animal isthe only "character" to survive
this marks the best film in all the series. Jason is now haunting a family, inlcuding 12 year old Tommy Jarvis, who eventually kills him. This features the same great F13 stuff, and includes just about everything that makes a horror film great.
A group of teens staying in a remote mountain cabin are killed offone-by-one by the undead Jason Vorhees. It's up to a pretty young woman(Kimberly Beck) and her horror movie-loving kid brother (Corey Feldman) tostop him.Solid-as-a-rock entry has gory murders (courtesy of Tom Savini) and nice,gothic touches (constant thunder storms, misty lakes and eerie shadows).Pales in comparison to part 2 but still recommended.Other pluses are the excellent cast, scary Jason makeup and an excitingclimax. The "twist" ending was later used in "Halloween 4: The Return ofMichael Meyers."Includes: 1 hacksaw to the throat, a scalpel dissection, 2 skinny-dippingscenes, 1 spear in the groin, 1 machete through the torso, 1 crushed head, 1axe in the chest, 1 dead dog, zero explosions, no car chases, 13 deadbodies. ***
This has got to be my favorite of the whole series. This was the end of the era when Jason was more "human" I guess you could say. Up till now, Jason ran after his victims, groaned in pain when attacked, pretended to be dead, made mistakes. This was before he became a robot from Part 6 to present day. I've always found Jason's deformed, retarded look much creepier than his many rotted zombie looks(although he looked great in Part 7). He is also pretty sadistic in this one. He always was, but he's got a nasty sense of humor now, and he's obviously in a much worse mood. Right in the beginning he kills the accident prone guy from the Police Academy movies by slitting his throat with a hack saw, then just decides to twist his entire head around. Great stuff, I had to rewind it numerous times. Same with the corkscrew thing; That has got to be the funniest moment of the whole series! This shows Jason really does have a sense of humor. And that was Crispin Glover who is always a joy to watch. The only silly thing about this one is the whole shaving of the head to look like Jason crap. What inspired him to even think of doing that? If I were looking at Jason news clippings, my first instinct wouldn't be to shave my head and say, "remember me, Jason? Jason, don't you remember?" Remember what? Jason should have said, "Yeah! You're Corey Feldman, ain't ya? Loved you in Gremlins!" This one plays it a little tricky too by giving you two characters that might make it out alive: Sister Trish and virgin Sara. Well, as soon as Sara gives in to her desires, she's immediately axed, so we're rootin for Trish the rest of the way(and she's a pretty badass lady in comparisson to the other ones in the series). So, this is the one that ended an era. The title isn't too far off in this respect because Jason actually dies at the end of this film. A few years later he'd be resurrected and take on a whole new personality and look. So, if you want any of these films in your collection, 1 through 4 are essential.
It seems to me that after awhile all of the Friday the 13th movies all start to look the same . After all just how many times can you actually kill a lot of people, then die and then keep on coming back to life? These are the type of questions which the producers of this series have yet to find an answer for.In this movie we once again see Jason Vorhees on the prowl for Hormonally Charged Teenagers (what else is new?). A young Corey Feldman appears in this movie with a novel way to beat Jason for good.Perhaps the makers of this trash decided that the only way to stop young people having sex in the woods was the scary thought that a big guy wearing a hokey mask would come after you?That's just one of my musings on the subject. If you like your Horror movies to be Brain Dead and Unimaginative then this movie is for you. Then if you like it then perhaps you should seriously consider some Heavy Duty Medication or Therapy!!!I give this movie 5 stars because I like the cabins and the location of this movie.
FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER DVD***** Out of 5In recent years DVD releases have started to get really lame; so called SE DVDs is anything, but that. Even Blu-ray releases aren't always so excellent either. Of all the DVDs and Blu-ray's I own most of the weakest releases are always from Paramount and their releases of the Friday the 13th movies are terrible. With the Deluxe Edition DVDs and Blu-ray releases, Paramount has slightly made up for their horrible releases of the series. But The Final Chapter was an excellent release and quite honestly one of my favorite DVDs that I own.AUDIO COMMENTARY- Joseph Zito, Barney Cohen, Joel GoodmanSolid track, which is the standard commentary track, but it is informative and a good listen, but the 2nd audio track was better; but like I said this was a good track.AUDIO COMMENTARY- Adam Green & Joe LynchAdam Green is of course the writer/director of Hatchet and Joe Lynch the director of Wrong Turn 2 and these two are truly a blast to listen to. Like all of us they are fans of the movie and it's just a blast listening to these guys talk about the movie; they have fun with the movie and have a few jokes about the movie, but not in an insulting way. Like I said, like all of us Green and Lynch are fans and it's sort of like hanging out with a couple of friends and watching the movie. I wasn't sure if I liked the idea of a fan commentary, but it turned out to be possibly the best part of the disc. Both Green and Lynch are horror geeks and it's so much fun listening to them go on about the movie.LOST TALES FROM CAMP BLOOD PART IV 6:19Directed by Andrew Ceperley and like the others I found this enjoyable; while it's nothing amazing, it is fun for the most part. This may not be the strongest feature on the disc, but makes for a decent filler.SLASHED SCENES 15:17This is a collection of alternate footage that features extra gore, but you can see the cast and crew so it's not the typical alternate footage. There is also no audio, since the track was lost, but director Joseph Zito provides commentary on it. This was an excellent feature and this alone makes the disc more than worth a purchase.JASONS UNLUCKY DAY: 25-YEARS AFTER FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE FINAL CHAPTER- 11:02This features interviews with many members of the cast and crew and while it's pretty much the same stuff we've heard in the past it's still a very solid feature.THE LOST ENDING 3:19Like Slashed Scenes there is no audio, but commentary is provided by Joseph Zito and Kimberly Beck; despite no audio there are subtitles provided. This was really great to finally see; I'm not sure if it would have worked in the film itself. But once again this disc provides the goods.THE CRYSTAL LAKE MASSACRE REVISITED PART 1 18:05This is a really fun feature, which is a spoof on the series; it centers on people who live around Crystal Lake and they discuss the legend of Jason; this feature is rather silly, but it's also very funny; keep a watch for the names horror fans and Friday fans should pick up on them; Director Stuart Gordon appears as Shelly' father; Shelly of course being from Friday the 13th Part 3. This one is just silly fun and another excellent feature. This was directed by Daniel Farrands the writer of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.JIMMY'S DEAD DANCE MOVES 2:06Commentary is provided by Joseph Zito and once again we have another winner; this was a really fun feature and I'm sure fans of this movie will love it.THEATRICAL TRALIER 1:54No need to explain this.TRANSFERAll the prior releases of The Final Chapter were quite poor with a lot of grain and dirt; to be honest the past DVD releases were slightly better than a re-mastered VHS and at times the quality was no better than a VHS. To be honest the only reason to buy the DVD is for the Widescreen; if not for that the DVD wasn't an upgrade over the VHS for the most part.Of all the DVD release for the Friday the 13th movies The Final Chapter was the worst transfer. Forget the features for a moment the picture quality alone is worth the price of the disc. This transfer is far better than the lousy releases in the past; while there is still obviously some grain and dirt this transfer looks amazing and far sharper than the prior releases. The colors are sharp and the movie looks brand new. This DVD was re-mastered in High Definition and it just looks amazing. Sometimes these movies are too cleaned up and they lose their low budget charm, but that doesn't happen here. But the picture is sharp and spot on; the past releases were horrible, but this DVD is top notch.The scene where Jason kills Doug was horrible in the original release; the POV shots are so grainy and it just simply looked horrible and plus the light was turned off, but yet it was still bright in the room. That problem is gone on this transfer. The original release the picture quality was terrible, but this new DVD gets it all right and the movie looks amazing and brings a new layer to the movie; AUDIOThe new 5.1 Surround sound was alright; to be honest on this release and the Blu-ray releases for the first 3 I have preferred the original Mono track. The 5.1 sounds great in terms of music, but I wasn't too fond of the dialogue. It didn't sound bad or anything, but I didn't really like it all that much. Again it sounds good, but I preferred the original Mono track.FINAL WORDS ON THE DISCI'm sure many will wait for a Blu-ray release, but the DVD is very worthy. Due to the age of the film and the Blu-ray will be taken from the same source when the Blu-ray does come out it really won't look that much better and odds are the extras will be the same. But if anyone is hesitant on picking this up due to Paramount's track record I can faithfully say Paramount did right this time; this is one of the few releases that is worthy of being called a Special Edition (or in this case Deluxe Edition). The only thing really missing is the TV scenes that were included on the Crystal Lake to Manhattan set. But it's really not a big deal. This disc is jam packed with solid extras and has a great transfer and is highly worth the upgrade.
Billed as The Final Chapter, but that ended up hardly being the case, but in some ways this was the last. The Final Chapter was the last of the more human Jason. Though I wouldn't say he was human since the damage he took in the previous part would have killed him if he were. But this was the last of the old school Jason. The Final Chapter also sort of marked the end of the Friday the 13th movies in a sense. What I mean by that is the first 4 while they were built around the Jason character even if he isn't the killer in the first and his name isn't even stated in the 3rd, but the movies do revolve around him, but it's not all about Jason. The Final Chapter is seen by many as the best sequel of the series and even seen by some as best installment of the series. I did enjoy The Final Chapter, but I have to disagree. The first 20-minutes are quite excellent, but after that things begin to slow down and the longer the stretch without a kill scene it can drag since the characters outside of the Jarvis family I found quite annoying at times. Writer Barney Cohen does a fairly decent job; he commented on part 3 saying the characters in that were better off dead and his goal was to create real characters. To be honest Part III is my favorite and I really liked the characters. I found the characters mostly quite obnoxious and annoying in The Final Chapter. Let's face it the Friday the 13th movies aren't known for their plots. The first one is really the only one with a plot; the 2nd part is simply a rehash only with Jason. The 3rd had the least amount of plot, but had some decent ideas. But even with that I found the previous 3 better written character wise. They in my opinion were able to keep things going in-between the death scenes and the 3rd part actually had some good ideas even if not used to its full potential. The characters in The Final Chapter aren't exactly unlikable, but in general it really didn't matter to me who died in general. Though the character development wasn't bad actually. As far as slasher movies goes this is probably one of the better ones that attempts to create more depth and it sort of works in some areas, but also makes the movie a little slow at times. I did like the Jarvis family, I thought the writing was solid on that and attempted to create more than the standard slasher movie characters, which was a nice touch. The rest of the characters weren't bad or anything, but slightly annoying at times. I also liked the concept of the Rob character played by Erich Anderson hunting down Jason for the revenge of the murder of his sister, which all signs point to being Sandra of Friday the 13th Part II. Joseph Zito made a name for himself with slasher fans on the cult classic The Prowler was a great choice for this movie. Zito isn't a great filmmaker in the traditional sense, but he knows how to craft an enjoyable movie. And when it comes to the slasher film he knows what the audience wants. The one thing I have to say though about Joseph Zito is he really knows how to create a really bleak tone. The Prowler and The Final Chapter both have this great sense of dread. By 1984 the slasher film really was just about dead. 1980 and 1981 were the golden years of the slasher film, and while there were still some good ones the slasher genre took a hit. So by this time there really wasn't anything left to explore; most slasher flicks were a total rehash of past ones and by now they were barley able to add anything new. Joseph Zito though is able to deliver a fun and enjoyable movie even if nothing new is added. By this point you just have to try and make the best film you can. Zito knows what the audience wants. Nudity and violence and he very much delivers. It's too bad after this Zito wouldn't do another installment or another slasher movie for that matter. Like I said Joseph Zito is a filmmaker that knows what the audience wants in these movies and he delivers. The pacing can lag at times as we spend time with the characters like I said they are sort of annoying, but fairly decent developed, but they aren't strong enough to carry the movie. So due to that the pacing can lag, but Zito always does manage to mostly keep the bleak tone. The final act though delivers with some great suspense and tension. I remember as a kid a lot of moments in the final act scared the hell outta me. Even to this day I think the final act is excellent; seeing Jason played by an un-credited Ted White chasing around Trish played by Kimberly Beck makes for some chilling moments than add Tommy played by Corey Feldman to the mix really helps elevate this movie a lot. What might lack at times is more than made up for with an excellent and creepy finale. The Final Chapter runs at 91-minutes, but actually it's more like around 82-85-minutes. The first few minutes are clips of the previous 3 along with the opening credits and than the closing credits. But it does seem like a few scenes were just tacked on to make the movie a certain length. There was a good 20-min or so stretch where nothing really happens and some of those scenes really could have been trimmed down to help the pacing. Tom Savini makes his big return to the series after passing on the 2nd part and I don't know if he was offered part 3, but regardless he didn't do it. Savini is re-teamed with Zito; the two previously made The Prowler together. Savini is spot on with the gore F/X. It's quite tough to pick his best work, several of his movies you can make a case for. I don't think The Final Chapter was his best work, but it's still pretty damn good. This was back in the good old days of guys like Savini and no CGI. And honestly, this looks better than any gore you'll find in a CGI horror flick. The cast is pretty good; all the main actors are fairly decent with some faces the audience should recognize. Peter Barton, Erich Anderson, Julie Aronson, Bruce Mahler and Lawrence Monoson have all done a few other things and the most notable cast members are Crispin Glover and Corey Feldman as Tommy Jarvis. Kimberly Beck as Trish Jarvis makes for one of the best heroines of the series. Beck, gives a mostly solid performance and I thought the chase scenes with her and Jason were some of the most solid moments of the franchise. Feldman also is excellent and the next two installments would see his character return played by different actors, with the exception of Feldman's cameo in the 5th part. Overall The Final Chapter was a solid slasher flick, while there are times the pacing lags in some spots it overall gets the job done with a dark tone and some excellent kill scenes. While not my favorite of the series I understand why so many fans think it is.
this is an ok film, you might like it if you like the friday the 13th series,
Jason's back and once again, he hunts down more teens on vacation. Gets off to a wretched start but gets progressively better. A nice ending that one would only think is a prelude to another sequel.
Not as bad as the other two sequels (but not as memorable as the original)mainly due to its gruesome gore effects, some rather scary scenes, and someappealing cast members. The gimmick was that this was supposed to be thefinal Friday the 13th. and was released on Friday the 13th., however we allknow that the producers lied. Yet another group of teens are served up forslaughter, but this entry leaves too many questions unanswered. Rated R;Extreme Graphic Violence, Nudity, Sexual Situations, andProfanity.
As far as slasher movies go, not just the Friday the 13th series, thisone has always been my favorite. The filmmakers accomplish everythingthey set out to do. From the atmosphere to the make-up to the deathscenes, it all works. Ted White is always the first "Jason" I think ofwhen somebody says "Friday the 13th". Mr. White set the standard forwhat Jason should be. You even care a little for the folks that die, afeeling that is absent from the rest of the series. The script is whatyou would expect from a slasher film, but most of the acting isacceptable.(You don't go into a movie like this looking for Oscarwinners.) If there is anyone left that is a fan and hasn't seen thisentry into the series, do yourself a favor. Pop it in your DVD or VCRplayers late at night, turn out the lights, and make sure the doors arelocked. You are about to see Jason Voorhees at his best. This is thestuff nightmares are made of. Everything else pails in comparison.
This movie was really stupid I just bought I intend on getting them all eventhough the acting is not very good at all. The only thing that is good aboutthis movie is the murders. For some reason I like all the blood and gore thestory was stupid the only actor I liked just a little bit is young Coreyfeldman (ninja turtles: voice donatelo, last resort, lost boys, stand byme. Overall I still kinda enjoy the story i gave a 6/10 but it deserves a 3.Their was also to much nudity.
Three Times Before You Have Felt The Terror, Known The Madness, Lived The Horror. But This Is The One You've Been Screaming For. This is the one of the best friday the 13th in this series. I think because it is the goriest. And it has alot of nudity then the rest. The dvd has no real features in it. This film is presented in a widescreen Presentation
this 4th , but not final, chapter picks up where 3 left off, with Jasonbeing taken to a morgue after a nicely edited recap sequence whichmakes the previous 3 films look a lot better than they actually are.Here, Jason reanimates, for no reason whatsoever, without explanation,and after killing a randy porter and nurse, makes his way, somehowunseen, back to Crystal lake. here, we get complete deja vu, withanother houseful of teens somewhere on the seemingly massive lake, afamily with a teen daughter and preteen son, and also a 'Jason hunting'relative of a victim from F2 thrown into the mix. needless to say theteens are sex,dope,beer obsessed, and during the night they aredispatched in a variety of gruesome ways. This all follows the formula,with after the killings and the chosen few left alive, we have thefamiliar what I will call 'realisation', where the teen daughter andher brother (plus the soon to be killed Jason hunter)realise that Jasonis after them;then the 'chase and reveal', where every time they turn acorner, open a door etc. a body falls out or is found. They end up in the family's house where during a confrontation withJason, the lad finds time to go off and shave his head and applytheatrical make up (its earlier established hes into horrormakeup/puppets /effects) to make himself look like an artistsimpression of Jason as a boy he saw in a newspaper cutting. This, likethe similar 'disguse/distraction' in part 2 doesn't really hold up tologic and scrutiny, especially when his sister is seconds away from agruesome end downstairs. Anyhow, this distracts Jason long enough forthe prerequisite 'mask off' moment and the boy to put a machete intoJason's head. Now correct me if Im wrong, but in parts 2-4 Jason's maskcomes off in every film and in each one he looks completely differenteven though these films span only a few days. Oh well, anyway, the filmends with Jason twitching on the floor and the kid goes into a frenzywith the machete to finish him off. The final scene has a Dr.explaining to the sister about the frenzied violent behaviour herbrother exhibited, and we end on a freeze frame of the kid with a madlook in his eyes. Of course, maybe the Dr. could have said,"well done,at last someone with the sense to decimate Jason's body when he wasseemingly just about to come back to life instead of running off", butthere you go. Anyway, in short, a serious case of deja vu from earlier (and later)films in the series. If you like/dislike the series in general thenyou'll have the same reaction to this due to it being so formulaic.There's a few decent (by 80's standards) makeup effects on the deathsif that is your sort of thing, and you think it can make up forshortfalls in plot,script, characterisation and originality. Probablybest enjoyed if your 12/13 years old or with a few mates and beers ifyou're older.
