1984’s entry into the popular slasher franchise, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, is one of the better Friday the 13th installments. It supposedly has the most nudity out of all the installments, it is more action oriented and this iteration of Jason Voorhees is pretty damn ruthless. Not to mention, tons of broken glass and Crispin Glover’s dance moves.
Personally, I bounce back and forth between this entry and Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives as my favorite film of the franchise. After 5 years of doing Late Nite Grindhouse, we finally worked it out to show a Friday the 13th movie on Friday the 13th!!
Expertly directed by Joseph Zito (The Prowler, Red Scorpion), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter introduces a great group of kids that are relatable, likeable and humorous. Stuntman Ted White brings an unapologetic and vicious Jason Voorhees to the screen that, in my personal opinion, strikes a true desperation of survival when it comes to the fate of our group of teenagers. While it was supposed to be the swan song of the franchise, us horror fiends know you can’t keep a good creep down.
