Friday the 13th, Part 5: A New Beginning

( 4 )

Overview

The maniacal Jason Voorhees is back in Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, the fifth chapter in the terrifying horror series. Paramount has done a nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer, which features bright colors and bold black levels. Although some imperfections exist (grain and dirt abound), this is due largely to the low budget of the film. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital Mono, and while all dialogue, music and effects are mixed evenly, this track tends to have a very flat and hollow ...

Overview

Paramount has done a nice job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic transfer, which features bright colors and bold black levels. Although some imperfections exist (grain and dirt abound), this is due largely to the low budget of the film. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital Mono, and while all dialogue, music and effects are mixed evenly, this track tends to have a very flat and hollow quality to it. Also included on this disc are English subtitles. As with the previous four releases, the DVD's only extra feature is a widescreen theatrical trailer that is only worth one viewing. While fans will be happy to receive this fifth installment in a widescreen edition, the lack of extra features may leave them thirsting for bloodshed.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
A high body count, tight continuity with the previous installment, and a lingering mystery over the participation of perennial serial killer Jason Voorhees characterizes this episode of the interminable slasher series. As usual with entries in the franchise, however, the concept of Friday the 13th, Pt. V: A New Beginning outstrips the execution. The idea of a film in which viewers are never sure whether Jason is even present is a novel one that dovetails nicely with the Jason-free first installment wherein the monster's mother did all the dirty work. But with unsympathetic characters, flat direction, and a distinct lack of visual flair, the film fails to generate any appreciable suspense. The teens this time are troubled residents in a group home, and their picturesque tics are a nice change from the usual parade of interchangeable plaid-shirted counselors. Surprisingly effective comic relief even arrives in the form of Ethel Carol Locatell, the group home's trashy, ornery neighbor. As Reggie, Shavar Ross also adds a welcome spot of cultural diversity to the cast, although his character's Prince-esque brother Demon Miguel A. Nuñez is as cheesy a stereotype as the biker gang who crashed the party in Friday the 13th, Pt. 3. Not that it matters much, anyway. Sandwiched between the superior efforts Friday the 13th -- The Final Chapter and Friday the 13th, Pt. VI: Jason Lives, this one's almost as bad as the nadir of the series: Friday the 13th Pt. VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

    Firiday the 13th part 5 a new beginning

    I only gave it 2 stars because of the action and high body count. It deserves a 1 or 0. This is by far my least favorite of the Friday the 13th series. Don't get me wrong, it is a good movie, but it is so dissapointing when you watch it and find out the truth that you probably will say ''man that sucked''. The layout of it is like any other Friday the 13th movie so it is a must for anybody who wants to collect the series. This actually wouldn't be a bad movie if it wasn't for he twist and those who have actually seen it will understand why I was so dissapointed. I won't ruin it for anybody so if you are interested go buy or rent the movie.

    Friday the 13th 5

    This one is just similar and alike Halloween 3. Don't bother but I thought it was okay until the end which I thought. OMG I can't believe I watched this whole ridiculious but then goes to the funny section. Still it goes to show that they must have weird characters or the movie won't be that interesting of fun to poke at. We see a character all grown up but is trying to face Voorhees even though he may have to prove his sanity while trying to do it. I give this a two since I was disappointed with the end.

    Why ''A New Beginning'' Its Just That!

    Alot of 'FRIDAY THE 13TH' Fans may disagree, but ''PART 5: A NEW BEGINNING(aka. Not 'The Next Chapter!')Is one of my all time favorite 'Psychological Suspense-Thriller Films of my time. Please allow me a few minutes of your time to show/explain to the audience why. First of let me give credit where Credit is merited: to the Makers= Producers,Writers & Director of ''A NEW BEGINING.'' Were it not for them Who knows if this series might've ended or headed in a diff' direction ...uhhm!!'anybody watched the most recent 'Hellraiser'or 'Children of the Corn'' endless 'lame-sequels.'My devotion & admiration for the ''FRIDAY-phenomenom''arose/came in 1985 with my first viewing (on-Video)of 'Friday-Part 4: The Final Chapter.' At the time I was only 10 years-old(I'm 27 now!)and althought it would take me a few more years to understand (totally)''the rules'' on how convincibly some,not all, horror/scary/scream films really work... needless to say I-like many- was scared to go in the woods--for few years afterwards. Being 10 or 11 I was scared, but also amazed,and grossed out but in a cool way because most of my friends in school had also wached it in theaters or rented it without their parents consent. ~What amazed me the most was 'THE FINAL CHAPTER's' 'cliff-hanger ending.' ~Perhaps some fans may be able to relate to this, on why this ending is so symbolic & important to my early teens, and later development into a young-adult. Watching/seeing/observing a young-Tommy Jarvis(Corey Feldman) slashing-responding-defending himself & his sister from a crazed maniac; by temporarily-& supposedly-disposing of a local psychological killer on the prowl. This traumatic point and episode in 'young/adult Tommy's' fictional-life(or anyone of us)is chronicled in 'FRIDAY-Part 4 & 5,6.' Can't/Couldn't anyone imagine-or see what their lives or destinys may have thru the eyes of a young-child/teen/adult 11,18,26. How their mind may and may not ever be the same after an intense episode(s) of RAGE. ~If only few-fans could put aside 'The Fact' & Mistake that the Producers of the 1980's Friday Films may have, originally groomed/intended/created a young-Tommy(Corey Feldman) to pick up the mantle of Jason Voorhees; sporting an all-new hockey mask, compared to the earlier films. The Producers may have failed with this original-intended plot. But only metaphorical speaking. Because from a intake Box-Office point of view,for this and future films(Exc: Part 8,9) they succeded. So much that the name spun-off a ''T.V.Series, with no reatlion to the mask, Tommy nor Jason. ~My intended puporse for this not so quick or short note is simply to share a similar-althought not this traumatic nor brutal- life experience, and simply trying to show or prove the point that not all traumatic experiences lead or are destined for damnation or a tragic doom. Not all 'Exorcisms(1973)-of sorts- lead/end with the (failed/repentent)Priest jumping out a window to his doom/damnation-suicide. There are few stories with happy endings. Some more real than others. ~ On a last 'FRIDAY-note,'compare the ending of 'A NEW BEGINNING(5)' with a shot/picture of young-Tommy picking up the'New-Hockey mask (Roy's-mask not Jason's);staring at it; resembling/kinda like a Hamlet/Othello play-where there's this character who picks up a skull-Tommy looks into the masks(his) eyes. Waiting for sign. Waiting for an answer. Waiting for a RESOLUTION to his hallucinations,troubles,& uncontrollable explosive fits/episodes of RAGE & MADNESS. ~ Tommy keeps on staring at the mask, and the mask's staring back at hyim. ~ Tommy looks on as if waiting for Jason to take him under his mantle. ~ Tommy's waiting for Jason, or Jason's waiting for Tommy to take over his unfinished work back at the lake. ~ To put on the mask,grab the big-kitchen knife-which appears unexplainably out of nowhere-and carry the ''FRIDAY'' franchise to greener pastures. ~ Then watch the opening for'FRIDAY 6.'Not only does the s
