Friday the 13th Part IV - The Final Chapter (1984)

I'm going to say it -- The Final Chapter is one of the best F13 sequels.  It's got Corey Feldman, Banana Girl, twins, a guy who calls himself "Teddy Bear," a creepster named Axel, and some pretty sweet kills.

So where did we leave off?  Oh yeah, Jason is dead and is being transported to the morgue.  No one has ever seen Halloween before and just figure him to be dead.  That's going to be a problem.  Jason predictably escapes and traipses back to Crystal Lake.  This time there's no summer camp, just a couple of lake homes where some people are vacationing.  Trish (Kimberly Beck) and Tommy (Corey Feldman) are living in a house with their mom, and a group of twenty-somethings have just arrived next door to party and skinny dip.  On the way there, they pass the infamous banana girl, not picking her up.

The group wants Trish to join in on the fun, but she's a little hesitant.  I would be too, with someone who's pick up line is "Come cuddle up with Teddy Bear."  Also, the horny bunch finds some cute twins, Tina and Terri (Camilla and Carey More) on the way back from the lake.   The party is on, and everyone pairs off to hook up, while Jason, true to form, murders them one by one. 

It's fairly obvious from the start that Trish and Tommy are going to be the final girl and boy.  But did we know that Tommy was going to shave his head and pretend to be a child Jason?!?!

My head explodes from awesomeness!

This confuses poor Jason and Tommy releases all his pre-teen suburban white boy rage by hacking Jason with a machete.  He was just defending himself and his family, right.  You decide.
