Popcorn Nights & O Cinema are proud to present the 30th anniversary of the not quite final, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.
Ahhh, 80’s horror. Freddy Krueger , Pinhead, Leatherface, Michael Myers, and of course Jason Voorhees. Sure, two of those guys first popped up in the 70’s but it was the 80’s where these characters became horror icons. The ‘Friday the 13th” series released more sequels in the 80’s than any other franchise and with the exception of a couple installments, Jason managed to keep things fun over the years. The fourth Chapter in the series “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter” is now celebrating its’ 30th anniversary and it is one of my personal favorite Jason films. Not only does it star a young Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover, but it also is the start of the Tommy Jarvis (Feldman) storyline which continued on in Parts V & VI. Come see the movie that the late film critic Roger Ebert called “an immoral and reprehensible piece of trash” and enjoy it with me. I can’t wait to show a Friday the 13th movie on FRIDAY THE 13TH!!!!
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (also known as Friday the 13th Part IV or Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter) is a 1984 slasher film. It is the fourth film in the Friday the 13th film series. Though it was billed as “The Final Chapter”, there have been many further sequels in the franchise. The popularity and financial success of the film, which grossed over $32 million, kept Paramount Pictures from retiring the franchise. Because of the finality of this film’s plot and title, the next film, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning, attempted to continue the series with a different killer; due to that film’s critical failure, it was ultimately partially retconned, making The Final Chapter the indirect predecessor to Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives in the series’ canon, in the sense of Jason himself returning at that point in the franchise. Likewise, Tommy Jarvis’s storyline was incorporated into A New Beginning, making a direct connection that picks up from The Final Chapter and then into Jason Lives..
