Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter was supposed to be just that; the end to the long time running horror series. We all know how that turned out though with the numerous sequels as well as a recent remake. Still, the IV film in the franchise is probably as good as it’s going to get as we all know what happened to Jason after that…

The film takes place directly after the previous installment with the police and medical team arriving at Higgins Haven to clean up the mess. In the usual Friday the 13th fashion, there’s a recap of all the previous films. Jason is taken to the local morgue where he rises from the dead and proceeds to go on a killing spree.
What’s a campy horror film without a group of young and sexy, not to mention stupid, teens just waiting to get hacked to pieces? I don’t know but I’ll tell you when I see one. The Final Chapter has all the makings of your traditional horror film. What makes it absolutely amazing is the fact that the film is hilarious.
We see a young pre-Goonies Corey Feldman act as Tommy and even though he’s probably around 10 years old, he’s the man of the house; fixing cars, restoring the power, etc. That’s only one of the many random aspects of the film.
Some of the other moments you’ll see and laugh at are little Feldman getting his first look at a naked lady and proceeding to jump around his bed like a crazed maniac, Crispin Glover doing the absolute worst dance in the history of film (he even got his own special feature on it!), and the greatest death scene ever with someone screaming “He’s killing me!” as he’s getting hacked away at. This stuff is priceless.
Surprisingly, The Final Chapter is one of the better Friday the 13th films I’ve seen. It isn’t drawn out and the special effects are just as good as some modern films. If you don’t take it seriously, you’ll have a fun time watching it and even the bonus features are worth looking into. You'll see the lost ending to the film that was never aired in addition to cast intervews, commentary, and loads of other stuff looking back onto this 25 year old film.
