Director Joseph Zito wanted Jason's hockey mask to explode apart in the opening credits, but there was not enough time in post-production to pull off this gag. See more »

Ted. I think... I think when we get to town I should call Betty.
Jimbo, calling Betty is definitely a dead fuck thing to do. Look, first rule of love: never get rejected by the same girl twice. I mean, that's useless. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, always do it with someone new.
I don't know anyone new.
Well, sex is a great way to meet them.

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 »
German version was heavily cut to avoid being banned like part three (which was uncut) but became banned nevertheless. Only in 2017 the banishment was lifted. See more »
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
