"Three Times Before You Have Felt The Terror, Known The Madness, Lived The Horror. But This Is The One You've Been Screaming For."

Killed by Chris Higgins (Dana Kimmell) in the last installment, Jason is taken to the county morgue where he's presumed dead. But inexplicably he comes back to life! (Good meds?)

The big guy returns to Camp Crystal Lake, and discovers a group of six randy, loud-mouthed adolescents who could use some of Jason's unique brand of silencing.

But he didn't count on tough-as-nails next door neighbor Trish Jarvis (Beck) and her feisty little brother Tommy (Feldman). Together, the two may prove too much for even Jason.

A solid cast and an exciting climactic showdown between heroine Beck and young Tommy highlight this one.

Special effects guru Tom Savini returns to the series with this one, giving us some of his most spirited gore since his work on The Burning (1981) or The Prowler (1981). Indeed, the gooey climax will have you squirming in your seat.

For us, one of the last truly enjoyable entries in the Friday the 13th series.

Also known simply as Friday the 13th Part 4.
