If you thought that the seemingly unstoppable killer Jason Voorhees was finally stopped in Friday the 13th Part III, then you were wrong – dead wrong. Having recovered from his wounds in the previous film, Jason goes back to doing what he does best – terrorizing teens. This time his targets include Crispin Glover, Kimberly Beck and a twelve-year-old Corey Feldman. But unlike the previous two films, the tables have turned – Friday the 13th is now Jason’s unlucky day! Upon its release, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter was supposed to be what it promised: hockey-masked killer Jason’s last terrifying trip to Crystal Lake. But when the film made a lake-sized amount of money, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning arrived a year later. But, for just one night, let’s pretend that it’s Friday, April, 13, 1984 and we’re about to see the last film in the franchise!
