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

When Jason chases Trish to the neighbors house she jumps over Tina's body and stares at Jason. You can clearly see the red marks on the cheek part of the hockey mask, but when he chases her upstairs before she breaks out the window you can see the marks are gone. See more »
Basically... if you're thinking of watching 'Friday 13th: The Final Chapter' (which you probably already know ISN'T the final chapter by a long shot) the only thing you need to know is that it's pretty much the same as the three before it. So, if you liked them, then you'll probably like this one, too.
Part 4 of any franchise is probably not a great place to start. Although, you probably won't need to know much back story to 'get' what's going on. As with the previous three instalments... a group of over-sexed teens go into the woods, only to be slaughtered by a masked killer.
Yes, Part 4 introduces a 'child' into the mix, but that's about as different as we get here. In summary, if you're new to the franchise, start with Part 1 and, if you like that, carry on. Part 4 is the same thing.
Although... it may be worth giving this film an extra star (taking it up to four) based on Crispen Glover's dance moves seriously... it has to be seen to be believed.
