2.0 out of 5 stars My descent into cinematic self-torture July 11 2004
Format:VHS Tape
After watching and enjoying the 'Freddy Versus Jason' flick, I made it my duty to watch every 'Nightmare on Elm Street' and 'Friday the 13th' flick so's I could catch up on the back story of both combatants. And after viewing the first five 'Friday' flicks, I'm beginning to regret my decision. I mean, really-- what's the point?! Each new one's pretty much the same as the previous one! Well, except that this movie's setting is some hostel for wacko teenagers rather than a camp or house near Crystal Lake. Then there are the hilariously overdone 'squishy' sound effects that pop up every time an edged weapon rips into some poor slob's flesh. And there's one rather gruesome killin' that Jason DOESN'T perform here, which is kinda new. And the Jason-kills here are even more over-the-top than ever before (A road flare?! Gimme a freakin' break!). Then there's the whole mystery over whether or not the guy doin' almost all of the killin's is the real Jason!
Otherwise, there's the usual 'Friday' staples such as the intro that refers to the previous installment (featuring a brief appearance by 'Friday 4' star Corey Feldman). And of course there's the group of teens (& a few adults) that get picked off one by one. Speakin' And let's not forget the tried-and-true boink scene and pot use, both of which automatically mark for death the partakers in such debauchery. Then there're the attempts at acting by most of the cast that are so bad, you'd swear Ed Wood did the casting! And we can't forget the ending that gives ya a hint that it ain't over yet. Topping things off: just like the previous flicks, I didn't find myself all that scared by the goings-on here. It's probably due to the fact that, after having watched the first four installments, I've become jaded by it all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Worst Friday!! July 27 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Okay, so you're expecting the same ole Jason thing, kill every character in a nice orderly fashion using every yard tool imaginable until there is the obvious sole survivor, busty or still looks good even she's found all her friends dead and been chased thru the woods in a middle of a rain storm, and miraciously offs what men half her size could not do at the end.......WELL, that's exactly what you get for the 5th time! But, for this to be labeled as the worst of the series....I DISAGREE! This movie kept Jason dead like part 4 ended (part 6 resurrected him again). I think it was cool how thru the entire movie you are lead to believe the killer is Jason, wearing a hockey mask and all, but is actually Joey's dad using the "Jason-thing" to act out revenge for the death of his son! From the point Reggie goes upstairs and discovers bodies in Tommy's room to the push of "Jason" out the barn door onto the bed of spikes (the last 25 minutes), INTENSE! One of the best flee from the killer into the woods, then back again, then confrontation until the bloody end in the series. The thunderstorm with it's loud strikes of thunder and flashes of light revealing dead bodies was perfect! If you are tired of the same [stupid] plot, then watch this one for the Ethel scenes. HILARIOUS! Her lines were famous to me and a few friends for years! True, there were parts that dragged and characters killed that held no ties to Pinehurst (half-way house), but this is NOT the lamest Friday. NOT THE BEST BUT NOT THE WORST!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series. April 10 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I know you are saying "What's up with that dude saying it is the best in the series". I'll tell you why: the best roughing up sequence in horror movie history and the most hilarious moment in the movie.
This movie has Tommy (I admire this dude's body. This guy is FIT!!!!) who is hallucinating about the Masked Man. He does this amazing roughing up scene that puts Steven Seagal to shame. It was really good for it was a martial arts defense beating and I had to rewind this scene 10 times to see how he did it. Eat your heart out Steven Seagal!!
The hilarious moment with the mother and son was also a good scene that made the movie the best in the series (and the most memorable, I might add). How many times do you see that scene in real life: it is rare but happens.
Other than that, I admit Jason is not around all the time BUT it is a Friday the 13th flick, what more can you ask (besides the woman with the nice rack who got laid in the middle of the woods and died due to her eyes plucked out (extreme pain moment folks!)
With all consideration aside, it is one of three movies that tie Tommy in with his motives against Jason.

Friday the 13th Part 5: A New Beginning is the second of the two films in the series that did not feature Jason Voorhees as the slaughtering juggernaut. It restarts the series after the mega-hit 'Final Chapter', focusing on the now troubled teenaged Jason killer Tommy Jarvis.
The trauma of hacking the Crystal Lake mass murderer to pieces has understandably kept poor Tommy plagued with vivid hallucinations and uncontrollable violent outbursts. Thus he has been continually moved from one mental health facility to another. As the story begins we find Tommy being relocated to a Troubled Youth Camp near Crystal Lake in the hopes of finally breaking the grip his past has on him. Things take a turn for the worse when, in front of Tommy and the rest of the group, one youth snaps and violently kills another. Suddenly a hockey masked killer prowls the night, slaughtering all unfortunate enough to cross his path. But Jason is dead, so just who is this killer? Could it be that Tommy has finally snapped and become what he tried to destroy?
Calling this entry in the long running slasher series a breath of fresh air would be both overly generous and an outright lie. Danny Steinmann's direction, while uneven and unpolished, is workmanlike. Martin Kitrosser's script tosses a little humor around but does nothing with the mystery premise, focusing entirely on the multiple killings (which are numerous, this entry had the highest body count of the series). Harry Manfredini's famous score, while reorchestrated, remains basically unchanged. It's just another formula feature, albeit one entertaining enough to recommend to the numerous fans of this kind of cinematic junk food.

A real turkey. But this time there's a "surprise" at the end. Do yourself a favor and skip ahead to Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood, a.k.a Jason vs. Carrie. Read more
