Friday the 13th The Final Chapter Movie Review






Friday the 13th The Final Chapter Movie Review




Ok, as we continue closing in on the release of Platinum Dunes' reimaging or relaunch of Friday the 13th I wanted to try my best to review each of the films. As with every review I try to give some kind of disclaimer to warn that with Friday the 13th movies they are my favorite horror movies of all time. Or horror series if you will. So I tend to be the bias. This movie is notable for a lot of things. Basically, the premise was this was the continuing of a 3 or 4 day massacre starting in Part 2 and ending for good in Part 4 The Final Chapter. Now this movie has a lot of tremendous points. Number 1 would be Corey Feldman as the historic Tommy Jarvis character. You have Crispin Glover as a great teen character with terrible dancing skills but, a personality you had to love. Trish was great as being Tommy's sister. Strong female heroine that we had got used to with the preceding 3 films. Now, I continue to this day and I say probably once a month on here that Tommy was the true killer of Jason. No hell baby, none of that BS. Not Freddy Krueger (and I loved F vs J). I feel that Joseph Zito directed a tremendous slasher flick and I'm still awaiting The Prowler on net flix and will do a review after I watch it. Anyway, Jason picks off the teens in various gory and rude ways as had become formula in all these movies. However, he did not expect to run in to a very smart little boy named Tommy Jarvis. Who was make up and gore fan himself. Tom Savini came back to help out with this film and boy you could tell it. The gore and effects were tremendous. Jason moved quick in this movie as well. Which made this more nerve racking. As Trish is chased by Jason back to the Jarvis house Tommy is grabbed news paper articles out of slain Rob's backpack and believes he can confuse Jason by shaving his head and confusing Jason in to at least slowing down long enough to kill Jason. Turns out. He was right. In a climatic and historic 2 minutes Jason is hit in the side of the head with a machete and slides down the machete (wow great work Savini). Then as Tommy and Trish share a hug Tommy notices Jason's fingers moving so he procedes to hack Jason up about 30 times while screaming die die die over and over again. Wow. great stuff. Now, I think its important to point out that Jason really is dead after this movie. NEVER. To return again if Tommy hadn't dug him up in Jason Lives. So it could've been a fitting chapter (thank god it wasn't) but, could've been a good ending to a series. so good points: Great deaths, Tommy Jarvis, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, Trish Jarvis, the horrific death of Rob (ugh), fitting ending to series. Bad points: Huh. Hmmm. None. I give this Friday 5 out of 5 axes. Great Friday and used to be number 2 on my list until Freddy vs Jason (which is just pure popcorn fun). So being 3 out of 11 isn't bad folks. If by some chance you don't own this. Then. Well, shame on you. Go buy the box set or grab the new ones coming out this year.
