R | | Horror, Thriller
After being mortally wounded and taken to the morgue, murderer Jason Voorhees spontaneously revives and embarks on a killing spree as he makes his way back to his home at Camp Crystal Lake.
This is considered by many fans, to be the best and most popular Friday the 13th film.
Die! Die! Die! Die!
When Sam is getting undressed to go skinny dipping, in the shots from behind, there is no one in the water. Even though the whole group is supposedly frolicking and splashing around in the water, no one is there, the water is perfectly calm, and a little family of ducks even swims by.
In the opening credits, Jason's hockey mask appears and moves towards the screen. Letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' appear on it. Letters proclaiming 'The Final Chapter' swing down, crash into the mask, causing it to explode, and reveal the rest of the title.
To obtain an 18 (the highest certificate given to a non-sex film in the UK) the BBFC originally cut 20 seconds of extreme gore from the film with edits to Jason's gory death, an aerial shot of the unconscious Trish on the lawn and the killing of Rob with a garden harrow. In April 2001 the BBFC passed the complete version with all previous cuts waived, so British audiences can now see the infamous machete face slide at the climax of the movie.
