(at around 15 mins) When Tommy is playing Zaxxon on his computer and talking to his mother, if you watch closely his ship is about to hit a force-field and he is going to die in the game. They cut away and a second later he is nowhere near the force-field with no chance of dying in the game. See more »
Under extreme duress, people are capable of extraordinary behavior. That's what happened when your brother violently attacked the killer. At that moment, it was perfectly normal for him to act to protect himself.

In Australia, the film was originally refused classification for a video release. As a result, the initial video release distributed by CIC-Taft in 1985 was heavily cut for violence including the Jason machete face slide in order to obtain an R rating. The second video release distributed by CIC-Taft in 1994 has all previous cuts waived and can be identified by the words "Horror House Unlimited" printed over blood red on the bottom of the front cover.

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
