Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
After being stabbed in the head by Chris Higgins. Jason Vorhees is believed to be dead and is taken to a Hospital for an Autopsy. However, He is Alive and kills a Doctor and a Nurse and is loose once more. He Returns to Camp Crystal Lake where Young Boy Tommy Jarvis lives with his Mother and Older Sister. A Group of Teenagers move in to a House next door to the Jarvis House. Jason begins killing the Teenagers and kills Tommy's Mother. It's now up to Tommy and His Older Sister to kill Jason and end his murderous rampage once and for all.
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 »
The following scenes were cut from the film:
Nurse Rhonda was originally held up and gutted, but it ended up being cut out so that it only showed her being stabbed.
A scene cut in which Tommy shows Rob a fake guillotine. Tommy puts a stick in the guillotine. It drops and the stick is cut in two. Then, Tommy puts a fake arm in and cuts it off. Rob thinks its real and starts screaming. When Tommy starts laughing, Rob figures out that it is a joke. Trish comes in and asks Rob if he wants to stay for dinner. He doesn't.
One scene in which Doug and Sarah are on the porch. They stand outside and talk about not dancing.
In another scene, Mrs. Jarvis goes into Trish's room and tells her to go get a car part in town. Mrs. Jarvis also announces that she is going jogging before it storms.
A small scene cut during the time in which the Jarvis' car breaks down. In the original version, right after Trish tells Tommy to hurry up it cuts. It did continue with Tommy running up to Trish in a scary mask, scaring Trish. Tommy declares that he made the mask the first week that he got there.
Sarah and Doug are together in their room (before the party starts). They talk about how nice each others legs are and how nervous they are about going to the party.
A scene where Tommy shows Rob a toy soldier melting under a magnifying glass.
A scene where Trish finds her mother drowned in a bathtub.
The original script had character Tommy Jarvis splitting Jason's head open with a machete at the conclusion. Tom Savini wasn't particularly enthused with this lackluster method, and after a member of his effects crew (John Vulich) toyed with a prop machete used in Dawn Of The Dead, Savini got the idea of having the machete blade plowed into Jason's head, followed by the hilt hitting the floor and the villain sliding headfirst down the blade.
A scene after Rob finds his shotgun broken to pieces in which he sets up a motion sensor in the woods.
An extra scene at the very beginning in the moving ambulance: the two paramedics converse, the female medic says "I could've had the night off" and the male responds "Well, this was an emergency, like every damn thing." We then cut to the ambulance arriving at the scene and being directed to Jason's body, which is all we see in the wide release.
I've been talking to a couple of guys that I work with about the whole Friday The 13th franchise, and we can all agree what the worst film of the franchise is, but we can't seem to agree on what the best film of the franchise is. One favors The New Blood. I voted The Final Chapter. Simply put: I think Ted White played the best Jason, in my opinion. He was the most energetic, colorful slasher ever filmed in cinematic history. I know there are many that may disagree with me, and that's fine, that's part of what makes a long time running franchise like this fun. And it's great to get all the points of views across, also. This was supposed to be the last entry to Jasons quest of murdering any kids that appeared to be under the age of 23! The highlights of the film: Ted White as Jason! Corey Feldmen is here. And, oh, they did not puss out on the blood and gore. I would argue that this was the bloodiest, goriest, most violent movie out of the whole franchise. Almost all the kills were on screen, and they are all in graphic detail. For awhile, I rated this 5 stars, but I have rewarded it recently with an extra star, due to all the trouble and trauma and BS I know that was attached to the history of making this film. For example. Ted White did not get along at all with director Joseph Zito. Joseph Zito was under a lot of pressure of getting this film done before April 13th, so that they could release this movie on Friday the 13th. He also had his eye on two upcoming projects of working with Chuck Norris, so he just wanted to get this DONE, without neglecting his responsibilities as a director. So they worked around the clock. They were all clearly exhausted. The lead actors and actresses were asked to do stunts that risked their well being. And all in all, despite all the problems that came with the making of Friday The 13th Part 4, I think they all pulled possibly one of the best slasher movies ever made. I mean, I really got to thinking about it, and i cannot name you one to top it!
