Hockey-masked killer Jason Vorhees returns to terrorize a lakeside family and their rowdy teen neighbors in this fourth installment of the long-running slasher series. After the events of Friday the 13th, Part 3, Jason's seemingly lifeless body is brought to the morgue, where horny attendant Axel (Bruce Mahler) is trying to score with foxy Nurse Morgan (Lisa Freeman).

Considering how long these movies kept going and how many of them there were, it's strange that only this one had everything in its proper place.

The final confrontation between Tommy and Jason is quite gorgeous, at least in the horror movie term of gore-geous.

Watching it again today, it works oddly well, almost like a John Hughes movie that got lost and wandered into slasher territory.

This one certainly felt as if it properly closed out the Friday the 13th series before it devolved into unadulterated camp.

I've always found "The Final Chapter" to be one of the better Friday the 13th sequels. Of course, that might not be saying a whole lot. This film, at least, executes the formula quite well. There's a pretty impressive body count made up of irritating morons, who find themselves executed with maximum brutality. It was a nice touch adding a protagonist, in the form of Tommy Jarvis. The showdown between the two, that results in Jason's "death", is especially tasty. Jason was far from a polished product at this point, but they were getting better. It's just stupid watching the old version of the character run, it looks ridiculous. All in all, if you want to watch Friday the 13th, this one's not bad.
