Editorial Reviews

Jason is back, hockey mask and all. And he's up to his old maniacal tricks in Friday The 13th, Part V: A New Beginning. This time he seems to have set his sights on the young patients at a secluded halfway house. And more than a few of his teen targets end up in half, in quarters...you name it, Jason does it.

This review refers to the Paramount DVD edition of the film.

THE WHO'S WHO: Starring Melanie Kinnaman, John Shepherd, Shavar Ross, Richard Young, Marco St. John, Juliette Cummins, Carol Locatell, Vernon Washington, John Robert Dixon, Jerry Pavlon, Caskey Swaim, Mark Venturini, Anthony Barrile, Dominick Brascia, Tiffany Helm, Richard Lineback, Corey Feldman, Miguel A. Nunez Jr. Score Composed By Harry Manfredini. Screenplay Co-Written and Directed By Danny Steinmann. (R) For Violence, Gore, Profanity, Drug Use, Nudity and Suggested Sex; 92m.; 1985.

WHAT'S GOING ON IN HERE?: Another film has come and gone with the absence of any camp counselors. That's not necessarily a bad thing. By putting the Jason Voorhees character in minute variations of his slaughtering ground, the filmmakers have kept the films interesting. This time, the central focus is a group of mentally and emotionally challenged teens staying at the Pinehurst Youth Development Center run by Matthew Letter (Richard Young) and his assistant Pam (Melanie Kinnaman). However, there's more on their minds than learning how to readjust to society when Jason starts carving his way through them. Once again, the directorial reins of the series have been handed over, on this occasion to lightweight upstart Danny Steinmann who shows an amazingly adept skill considering he hasn't directed anything since. One problem that has plagued this series since its inception lies in the character development. However, like most of the other entries, this is a prime example of generic characters being filled by skillful actors who take their roles to a higher level than they should deservedly reach.

Format: DVD
The scares and seriousness are starting to wear off with Friday the 13th: A New Beginning and instead we have something a little more comical, a little more campy and a little more entertaining. Now none of these films have ever been high art or considered serious horror. However it is obvious with this film the writing is weaker, the performances are weaker and the effects are weaker. Yet it still manages to be fun and watchable. The killer's identity (using Jason's mask and machette) is predictable. The script could have been better if it were re-worked and more red-herrings had been thrown our way to keep us guessing. The Tommy Jarvis character from the previous installment Final Chapter is presented here all grown up, still trying to battle his inner demons from the horror he experienced when he was younger. The setting is a home in the woods where the mentally-challenged try to get back to living a normal life. Another problem was that some of the characters were not developed near enough. They were basically just there for the kills. And in films, characters need to be created and developed properly in order for the audience to identify with and care about them. Otherwise, the impact isn't as great. For example, I liked the Violet character yet we didn't find out anything about her. The most overused cliche's are also present here. The broken down cars, the cat jumping out, the heroine falling down when being chased by the killer, etc. Some pluses were the settings they used which were used effectively. The infamous rain storm, the woods, the barn and the final chase scene near the end are all on nice display here. The lead heroine Pam, played by Melanie Kinnaman is very likeable and good-looking.Read more ›

I'm a big Friday fan, so I pretty much knew I would love this before I saw it. But I don't just love it, I ADORE it. Oooh Jason isn't here!! So what? It's scarier because the deaths are very gruesome, and the fact that the killer is an 'average joe' shows that you don't have to be a 'mutant' to be pure evil. It also marks a new beginning in the series--where each addition isn't a continuation of it's predecessors as much.
Tommy Jarvis has never looked better. In the Final Chapter he's a normal kid, in Jason Lives he's just a former crazy who's all better. In this one, he's quiet and you can tell by the look on his face through most of the movie he's one push away from snapping. The scene where he confronts "Jason" in the barn is the best--it gives me goosebumps all over!! Tommy is also a character you can both pity and cheer. In this one he really shows that.
The girls are hot and have well-developed bodies, the murder scenes are the most disgusting I've seen in a while, and the LANGUAGE! Good god, I needed to wash my TV speakers out with soap after watching it!
Jason is the man, don't get me wrong, but this addition gives you a little break from all that stuff you're more than used to. What's more, the ending--when combined with how Part 6 begins--leaves you with much to think about. Give it a chance. Jason would want you to.

In this fifth chapter, Jason Voorhees is taking a rest after his death in Part 4. As we all know he eventually comes back to wreak furthor havoc in Part 6. And he's currently working on Jason X and Freddy Vs. Jason. Well lets go to the review. I'm not a big fan of Roy, the killer in this one. But I give this flick 5 stars because, all of these movies are pure horror classics. The story starts off with Tommy Jarvis (from Part 4) having a day dream about everyone's favorite hockey-masked killer, Jason, returning from the dead. He wakes up, and we sees he's in a van, taking him to a house for mentally-troubled teens. When he gets there he starts hallucinating Jason. Soon after, a killer starts hacking up nearby citizens. It's not Jason though. During the film, we get the standard classic stuff : Nudity, endless harware and plenty of gore! This is just non-stop entertainment! A lot of my fellow-fans of the F13 series, hate this installment for being Jason-less. And I dis-like it for that one element. But everything else is more than a horror fan could want!
