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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Killer. A New Beginning. April 18, 2002
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Beginning: Campy yet entertaining April 20, 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the only friday who-dun-its April 4, 2009
Format:DVD
its common for part 5 to be cited as one of the worst fridays, but at least it restores the mystery element that has been missing since the original. they dont try too hard to conceal the identity of the killer, just the motive...and the body count is excessively sweet even though most of the murders are of characters that have little or nothing to do with the plot...the greasers, demon and anita, billy and lana. its a sleazy film, and its obvious the censors couldnt wait to cut it to shreds. there is very little blood in part 5 and the leather strap scene seems to be the only decent effect the MPAA would let slide. hopefully they'll release an uncut version if the footage still exists.
