Lisa Freeman, who played Nurse Morgan, and Crispin Glover, who played Jimmy Mortimer, both would go on to be in the Back To The Future movies. Crispin Glover played George McFly in Back to the Future (1985) and Lisa Freeman played Babs in Back to the Future (1985) and Back to Future, part II (1989). See more »
(at around 15 mins) Tommy isn't wearing glasses while he is playing his computer game, so it can be assumed that he needs them for distance. However, later that night, when he is watching Paul and Sam through the window (at around 24 mins), he doesn't have his glasses on but he can still see what is going on. See more »
Hey, Ted, where's... where's that, uh, that corkscrew? That fancy corkscrew for the wine bottle? Ted? Hey! Ted! Ted! Hey, Ted, where the hell is the corkscrew?

In the opening credits, Jason's hockey mask appears and moves towards the screen. Letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' appear on it. Letters proclaiming 'The Final Chapter' swing down, crash into the mask, causing it to explode, and reveal the rest of the title. See more »
Sound cues are missing from the 2000 DVD release. They occur in the following scenes:
When the 'Final Chapter' title card explodes through Jason's mask, the 'sweeping sound' is missing.
When Jimmy meets his demise, the stinger sound when Jason plants the corkscrew into Jimmy's hand is missing.
When Sara meets her demise, the stinger sound effect is also missing when a closeup shot of her lying on the floor with the axe planted in her chest is shown. These were all restored for the 2004 boxset release.
Friday the 13th The Final Chapter: Vast improvement on the previous films
Friday 13th 1-3 I considered to be generic camp slashers which didn't live up to the iconic legacy that the franchise has built up. This 4th part however was an improvement and I actually quite enjoyed it.
This time with a couple of familiar faces in Crispin Glover and child star legend Corey Feldman the movie actually had a bit of a storyline which the previous ones didn't. Thin storyline absolutely but a storyline all the same.
I didn't entirely understand the logic of the movies finale but everything else was well enough done and though the film pales in comparison to the same years Nightmare On Elm Street it's still a decent slasher feature.
Vastly improved death scenes
Actually has a story
Still pretty naff in places
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
If a rubber dinghy gets run through with a machete it'll continue to float because physics
Harpoon gun up the bum is a hell of a way to go
