Friday the 13th: the Final Chapter

Joseph Zito (1984)

18 Certificate


Our Score
The plot is as negligible as ever, the sex-obsessed teenagers interchangeable and the grisly murders all twists on the old favourites in director Joseph (Rosemary's Killer) Zito's take on the Camp Crystal Lake blueprint. Special make-up genius Tom Savini gives the body count an extra dimension of charnel house nausea as machete-wielding Jason goes on the rampage again. Incredibly, Zito manages to create tension prior to each shock demise, and he also provides a truly nightmarish dénouement. Crispin Glover of Back to the Future fame stars.


Hockey-masked serial killer Jason is resurrected again, and sets his sights on a fresh batch of unlucky teenagers in Crystal Lake. Horror sequel, starring Kimberly Beck, Crispin Glover, Ted White and Corey Feldman.
