We wouldn’t leave you hanging on Friday the 13th, would we? At the blackest core of the Friday the 13th saga (now in its fourth decade, wow!), there stands a storyline that still fascinates and boggles us: the famed “Tommy Jarvis trilogy”. Part IV: The Final Chapter first introduced the character of a plucky young horror aficionado who happened to outwit Master Voorhees with a machete to the rotten skull — but, in the aftermath of more and more dead bodies, had Tommy succumbed to murderous madness himself, or was Jason still on the scene, dispatching the sweet touch of death onto any copulating teen, blotto’d backwoods bystander or other whacko in his path? One of the great things about this trilogy, aside from the gaggle of gleeful gore, is that, despite the obvious F13 formula (teens + Jason = death, and lots of it), each entry has its own unique flavor, thanks to the distinctive directorial visions of Joseph Zito, Danny Steinmann and Tom McLoughlin. Travel back in time with us as we trace Tommy’s Proustian odyssey in reverse, from adulthood back into innocent prepubescence — all in one sitting, all on glorious 35mm!
