I Would Say They Saved The Best For Last, But Its Not The Last, 12 February 2005
Author: americanadian25 from United States

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.
