Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?
Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Thought to be killed by the sole survivor of the last massacre at Camp Crystal Lake, Jason Voorhees kills his way back to the camp to once again murder its inhabitants. This time, has Jason met his match in the little boy Tommy Jarvis? Written by

Due to the production's low budget, several actors had to perform uncomfortable or dangerous stunts, including Judie Aronson (Samantha), who was required to stay submerged in a lake in near-freezing temperatures, and Peter Barton, who was actually slammed into the shower wall when Jason attacks him. Ted White, who portrayed Jason, advocated for several of the actors, requesting that Barton be allowed to use a crash pad and threatening to quit when director Joseph Zito refused to allow Aronson to get out of the lake between takes. White and Zito ultimately developed a combative relationship on set, which culminated in White demanding his name be taken off of the film, calling it "a piece of shit." See more »
In some shots of Jason, the eyebrows of actor Ted White can be seen through the eye holes in the mask. Jason does not have eyebrows, as shown at the end of the film when his mask comes off. See more »
I'm free, doll.
And a bargain at twice the price.
Hey. What's the matter?
I have a headache, Axel. For you, I always have a headache.
Oh, I can fix that. Meet me in the cold room. I'm closing up for the night. What do you say? Okay?
Axel, I am not going to fake any more orgasms for you.

I Would Say They Saved The Best For Last, But Its Not The Last
Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter is no where near the final chapter, but it is my favorite Friday movie. Jason, presumably dead after the events of Part III, is sent to a coroner. But Jason, of course, is far from dead. So after he heads back to Crystal Lake, the unsuspecting teens who are drinking, skinny dipping, having premarital sex, etc. are in for it. The Jarvis family, residents to Crystal Lake aren't safe either. There might only be one person who can stop Jason's rampage, and that is young Tommy Jarvis, played by Corey Feldman.
Friday The 13th Part IV isn't that different from any other Friday movie, it follows the same basic formula most of the others have. The acting is bad, but that goes without saying. Jason is at his prime, he's big, he's bad, and he is ready to slaughter whoever he wants. The direction for this movie is probably the best in the series, it was definitely impressive. The direction is one of the reasons why this movie is my favorite Friday movie. Another reason is that the killings are probably the best in the series. The writers got very creative for how Jason was going to kill and scare his victims. Any Friday The 13th fans and slasher flick fans will definitely want to see Friday The 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter.
I give it a 9/10.
