Although not great actors by any stretch I found the cast likeable for the most part in this one and there is even a real ''Vorhees'' in this one: Debisue Vorhees! The story was constructed in a way that makes you understand how a person can lose it and become a murderer. It has a different setting also, it's not camp Crystal Lake, it's isolated yet all the teenagers are together in a youth development centre for troubled teens that helps rehabilitate them, making this an easy playground for the killer.
It's by no means perfect or the best Friday The 13th movie, but I think it's been getting unfair treatment by fans who obviously seem betrayed by the fact that Jason is not the villain in this one.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Part 5 easily earns spot #2 in the worst of the Friday series (2nd only to Jason X). I found it to be bland, boring and it didn't really add anything new to the mythology. Read morePublished on Feb. 10 2011 by Summer_Nights
