Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) Review:
Reviewing the Friday the 13th series without getting outrageously repetitive is a really hard task, and this fourth episode is no exception. The story here is extremely similar to the other films, with the usual bunch of young and “debauched” people getting slaughtered one by one just because they happen to be in Jason territory. The first scenes in the hospital bring a little novelty for the action finally happens somewhere else than in the woods. As in the last sequel, this movie compensates its lack of originality but having a lot more characters, and therefore a lot more kills, including some really gruesome ones.
In this sequel, we can particularly see the main difference that exists between Jason and other classic killers such as Mike Myers or Freddy Krueger. Apart from the final pursuit, Jason only rarely appears on the screen during the kills. He always takes its victims by complete surprise and strikes them with an immediate deadly blow. No long pursuits like in Halloween or sophisticated kills like in Nightmare on Elm Street, Jason is all about stealth, efficiency, and brutality.
This movie has nothing more to it except a fabulous ending where the little boy delivers a particularly creepy scene. This reminded me of Halloween 4 and its final scene in which young Jamie kills her mother with the scissors.
To conclude, this fourth part is one that does not risk a story twists, but one that sticks to the basic…efficiently. It is my second favorite of the franchise (after the 3rd movie) and definitely one that should please Friday the 13thfans.
