The plot is thickening a bit. Some scenes take place in an hospital, early on, shortly before we are introduced to a colorful Crystal Lake family, whose youngest child crafts and collects monster masks. We then meet our necessary bunch of partying teens, something the Friday the 13th franchise can't possibly write out, but proof that it found a faithful niche.
Nothing makes this chapter any more "final" than the previous three, aside from a dose of irony in the presence of young Corey Feldman's character, the main protagonist, facing a monster that cannot harm him, cursed by his design. The movie isn't extreme or trying to break new grounds. It walks in the footsteps of Friday the 13th Part 3, borrowing its humor and light tone.
The acting is evenly bad but the effects are top notch, something we've come to expect. The script compensates by making it a mission to bombard you with either amusing, mysterious, or gory sequences. Attention to detail is slowly becoming a priority in regards to photography, though we're still visibly in low budget territory. This franchise is evolving at a remarkable rate.
