I remember seeing this on video at a friends house back in the day and being so freaked out that I had to ask his Dad to walk me home. I was 12 years old. Them were the days.
After the camp of Part 3 this film gets back on track and is resplendent with really vicious kills courtesy of Tom Savini.
Part teen drama, part TV movie about life after separation, the film then becomes what it says on the tin- a nasty 80s horror movie with our friend Jason bumping off the most irritating kids known to man. The film has a very serious and grave tone throughout that precedes the fucked up ending.
Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover both star in this relentless rollercoaster of gore.
Watch for the machete slide scene. This was cut from the original UK video release and is well wirth the price of admission.
My favourite Friday the 13th movie and the end of Fridays imperial phase.
