Maybe someone will write a dissertation on why some horror movie franchises eventually have that one movie that basically sticks a middle finger down the throats of its fans, betraying everything the whole series has been and should be about. Friday the 13th Part V - A New Beginning may well be the worst offender of the bunch. When a slasher film has to painstakingly explain itself at the end, you know it has some serious problems. It's bad enough that the very concept of the film reeks with utter stupidity, but these characters? It's like one of those rabid anti-horror fanatics wrote the script with the express purpose of turning horror fans off so much that the Friday the 13th series would quickly wither and die.

Some people defend the film by saying it's still a maniac in a hockey mask killing people in gruesome ways, but I'm here to tell you that the blood and gore in this film is close to pathetic. Not once do we actually see an actual death blow: someone gets stabbed in the stomach and we see a shot of his face looking down and grimacing; a guy gets beheaded and all we see is an incredibly fake head hitting the ground; etc. If the special effects of all the scenes cut to avoid an X rating were this unimpressive, they might as well have left them in there. The least they could have done was make "Jason" look like the real deal - if he doesn't look like Jason, if he doesn't walk like Jason, he's not Jason.

The opening scene of this film is actually pretty good, even though it does feature a cameo appearance by Corey Feldman (whose commitment to The Goonies kept him from truly reprising his role as Tommy Jarvis - that role went to John Shepherd). After that, though, look out below.

Many people did not like this Friday the 13th film because it did not involve Jason but who gives a F#@k what they think. This movie is suspenseful and has interesting death scenes. The movie starts off with 12-year-old Tommy Jarvis having a nightmare about Jason Voorhees coming back to life and killing two people. We then see 15 to16-year-old Tommy waking up in the car driving to a mental institution. After medical patient Vic kills other patient Joey a series of Jason style murders occur from hedge clippers to the eyes to being crushed with a leather strap and tree. The final scene is "Jason" chasing Pam and Reggie into a barn and Tommy coming through and saving the day by knocking "Jason" onto a bed of spikes. It turns out the killer was a man named Roy who was a paramedic. It turns out Roy was Joey's father and seeing his son's hacked up body pushed him over the edge. At the end Pam enters Tommy's hospital room and Tommy comes up from behind with a knife poised to kill her. Every website though says he didn't kill her because one, he was released to be in part 6 and two, it turned out to be a hallucination after having one about killing her before. This movie was one of the better ones because Roy is hidden in the shadows for the majority of the movie and he also makes Jason proud at one point when Reggie runs him over with a tractor, he's still able to get up and out run Pam and Reggie! Tommy is also very dark and menacing by having visions of Jason and beating up one of the patients after he wore one of his masks. It is also very suspenseful and has some shocking and bloody moments. For those of you looking for a good horror movie, rent Friday the 13th part V: A New Beginning.

this fifth entry in the series has an interesting twist that is hinted
subtly(or maybe not subtly)a few times throughout the movie.i liked the
ending to part 4:The Final Chapter,but i liked this ending even
more.otherwise,there's not much straying from the familiar formula
mined in the last 4.masked psycho slaughters several people for no
apparent reason.some of the characters in this one are just plain
unlikable,or stupid.once again the acting is nothing special,but then
again,that's to be expected when your characters are merely plot
devices,and nothing more.for me,this movie wasn't as good as the
fourth.my vote for Friday the 13th-Part 5:A new Beginning is a 3/5

This is routinely cited as one of, if not the, worst film in the Friday series, and that's saying something.
First off, you won't be watching this flick by accident. Either you're a fan of the series, or not really. It's no secret that the films follow the same formula. It's a real statement about the 80s and about Hollywood in general that the ultra-cynical filmmakers would churn out the same product every year, to diminishing returns, until they ran it into the ground (witness the appalling Part VIII, Jason Takes Manhattan). Strangely enough, the last two installments of this indefatigable series were two of the best: Jason X, and Freddy vs Jason. You have to wreck the series to rebuild it.
Jason was killed at the end of Part IV. It seems that it only took a little bit more abuse than he had endured in Parts 2 and 3 to kill him, even though he was stabbed, hung, axed in the head, etc. But apparently, Tom Savini's machete-to-the-head finale to The Final Chapter was the necessary fix.
Tommy Jarvis, the hero of Part IV, finds himself in a halfway house, years after the events of the previous film. Of course, he is still completely haunted by Jason, the masked maniac invading his daily thoughts. (In Hollywood, you can never recover from trauma, ever, and it will always return to destroy you and your life.)
One day at the half-way house, populated with troubled 80s kids, someone gets butchered, and the cops haul off one of the youths. Then, one-by-one, people start getting offed by a hockey-masked psycho, and Tommy is convinced Jason is back from the dead. It's up to him to ultimately square off against the villain, again, after the requisite amount of bodies pile up.
