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

The moment with Jason's hand moving in the morgue was done by Ted White after director Joseph Zito had called cut on the scene. However, the camera was still rolling and hence caught said movement, so it was included in the film. See more »
Pamela Voorhees' tombstone reads "1930-1979". But Part I shows her death taking place on Friday, June 13th, and June 13 1979 was a Wednesday. (The year of her death should be 1980, as the first film was released in that year, and June 13th was indeed a Friday that year.) 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.
