Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter 
Getting Bad
1.5/4 stars

Ok, I have watched the first 3 Friday The 13th films in a row. After the huge dissapointment which was Part III, I kind of gave up hope on finding a good film in the series besides the first one. Part 4 is a little bit better then 3, but not as good as 2. With a new director, new writer, more gore, better effects, and some decent directing, the film actually does well. But, the movie is stupid, repetitive and brings nothing new to the series. While we get a batch of new characters, mostly teenagers and more sex, the movie just got boring, which it was.

The movie begins with the end of III, where the police and emergency crews find the massacre which was the 3rd movie and also find the killer, Jason Voorhees. When Jason is dropped off at the morgue, it begins to get a little bit better. With great opening death scenes, I felt like I could easily get into the movie. But then as we are introduced to lamer and more boring characters, I myself began to get bored. Then after about 20 minutes of nothing, some more gore arises and the last 30 minutes of the film are the fastest, which is not really fast.

The thing absoulutely loved about this movie was to see the gory and great death of actor Crispin Glover, because to me, hes a freak. A rat lover in Willer, to a hair smelling maniac in Charlies Angels and finishing off by playing the voice of a Grendel in the recent adaptation of Beowulf. It was nice to see him get wacked in one of his first films.

I have to give it up to new director Joseph Zite for pumping up the level of violence in the movie. We get plenty of actually pretty good gore scenes, most being impalements and what not, I thought they actually looked pretty good. I guess its because of the increase and advancements in technology.

The movie isnt either surprising nor scary, because every scare or useless plot twist was scene coming when the movie began. It tries to add some little stories to have your mind jumping back and forth between whos the killer and what not, but fails miserably.

Part 4 is not the best nor worse of the series, but its boring and repetitive. Worth a sort of look, if your drunk.
