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.

Customer Reviews

Jason is not the killer.
"xkrelianx"
Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning is the worst in the series so far and that is saying allot.
Bjorn Viberg
If you just like movies for the killing then you would probably like 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 ›

Format: DVD
Although most fans of this series say that this is the worst of the series, I whole-heartedly disagree. There are much worse installments of the franchise. The reason why people dislike this movie is mainly because of the fact that Jason Voorhees is not the killer of the movie. That's the beauty of it. It shows the fact that an average joe (or Roy in this case) can mentally snap and go off on a horrific killing spree. Let us not forget that this how Mrs. Pam Voorhees started.
The acting by the cast is horrible and the script wasn't thought out all that well. There are however some hilarious comedic moments now and then in the movie. It's one reedeming quality is the acting portrayed by John Shepherd as Tommy Jarvis. The portrayal of Tommy as a seriously disturbed young man after his encounter w/Jason is very realistic for it shows the constant fear, anger, sadness and paranoia of surviving that horrific night from F13thIV.
This movie had a lot of potential but fell short in what could have been the best in the series since the original.
Don't take my word for it: see it for yourself...if you dare.

You gotta give them credit for at least trying to do something "different" with this movie. Even if it was just having some tubby goon play dress-up with Jason's mask (and it being the ONLY Friday where he's got blue triangles on his mask, despite how many masks get destroyed), it was sort of a change from what we've seen in the last 2 sequels (parts 3 & 4). Sort of in the sense that it wasn't at THE lake, but some "special" camp for troubled kids. But since we think it's Jason the whole time doing the killing, the joke is on us. Maybe that's what people are really upset about, or maybe I'm just reading too deep into it. The Nightmare series got stale real quick (parts 4 & 5 being the worst), and so they decided to go back to the FEAR of Freddy in the last couple; that sort of worked too.

Others have compared this movie to Halloween III, and rightly so. From what I've heard of the Halloween series it was supposed to have 1 or 2 with Michael Myers in it, and the series to focus on other horror elements with a Halloween theme, hence the first film taking place during Halloween. So when H3 came out (as well as Fri-5) people were upset at the change. They knew what they liked and expected to see something they were familiar with: the same-old thing of nudity, blood, death. And though this film had those elements they felt it just wasn't the same. I felt it was a good change that they could have easily gone with in various directions.
