Friday the 13th – The Final Chapter

Opening line of film - 'I don't want to scare anyone, but Jason is still out there' - is film's only laugh, aside from unintended chuckle in the credit roll for First Aid. Everyone in sight of the lake gets it this time, except for a little boy with a fetish for masks who slaughters the crazed Jason and the boy's older sister (Corey Feldman and Kimberly Beck).

Opening line of film – ‘I don’t want to scare anyone, but Jason is still out there’ – is film’s only laugh, aside from unintended chuckle in the credit roll for First Aid. Everyone in sight of the lake gets it this time, except for a little boy with a fetish for masks who slaughters the crazed Jason and the boy’s older sister (Corey Feldman and Kimberly Beck).

That leaves a dozen others who don’t make it. More accurately, most are butchered after making it.

Of course, nobody is expected to take this stuff seriously. [Screen story by Bruce Hidemi Sakow.] Given, however, the consistent pro production value, the evisceration on parade is not campy. Implausibilities abound as Ever, and several Friday the 13th veteran players make brief appearances in an opening flashback compilation of old footage [from the three previous pics].
