Editing Details:
I tried to stay true to Joel Goodman & Daniel Loewenthal's editing style from the original film. I didn't want anything to seem changed or altered at all.
This mostly meant sharp, quick cutting & trying to keep the energy high.

Ray Danger once again edits so seamlessly to create a streamlined version of Friday the 13th, Part IV.

I have to nitpick and say there was just one noticeable cut here, when Trish enters the basement and sees Jason killing Rob. But its totally forgivable given the improved pacing of the scene! The edit overall greatly improves the pacing of the original cut and again creates a stronger sense of continuity. This is one of my favorites of the original series, given it actually starts to develop it's characters and makes you like them before they are brutally killed off. This raymix truly is all killer, no filler!
