5.0 out of 5 stars Still good, even without Jason... 7 Sep 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Friday the 13th - A New Beginning is a well done installment in the horror series. Tommy Jarvis, the boy Jason terrorised in 'The Final Chapter', has taken residence at the local mental hospital due to the brutal loss of his mother and family. Tommy starts geting visions of Jason and the murders begin, again. A great sequel, but most people hate this film because Jason is not involved, but this has some classic deaths, some sound acting and a fairly decent plot, plus it has some lovable characters (but it also has it's fair share of annoying ones!). Still all you can do is give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth It For Reckless Reggie 30 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Yep, another Friday The 13th sequel. This one is not one of the best, however, at this price, it's well worth it just to see the REAL star of the show - the young Reckless Reggie who runs around in his red tracksuit for most of the film with a high-pitched squeal.
This time, Tommy is sure he is seeing psycho-killer Jason Vorhees all over the joint, however, is Jason just an illusion, or back from the dead? Woooo!
Also look out for a cameo from "Demon", who plays "Spider" in "Return Of The Living Dead", as Reckless Reggie's brother...and remember, never rely on Reckless in an emergency, he will run as fast as he can away from you when you're in trouble, and all you'll see is a blur of red tracksuit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scariest Friday 27 Mar 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The grown up kid from the fourth film is haunted by, and eventually possessed by, the spirit of Jason Voorhees (in a similar way that Jason's spirit possesed his mother in the first film). Jason's sudden appearances are actually quite shocking. Meanwhile, a copycat killer in a hockey mask cuts his way through the locals, including kids at Tommy's mental home. Gratuitous violence and nudity round off my favourite of the Friday films. Good, if you like this sort of thing. Many don't.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent 80s slasher. 26 Mar 2014
When released fans were outraged that another Friday movie was given the green light after the brilliant 4th installments ending. Jason was ready to die. So along came Part 5 and to everyone's surprise the movie contained not Jason, remember he's dead, but an imposter instead.

Taken as a slasher film, the movie is quite good. True it's the same old teenage characters getting chopped to bits, and true imposter Jason sure kills and has the strength of normal Jason, but the kills are inventive, and what more would you expect from a Friday film?

The sex scenes seem a little more ramped up and once you know Danny Steinmann is directing that is normal since he was involved in the porn industry in the 70s.

Jason fans should actually like this one, especially if your expectations are low after all of the negative reviews. This isn't so bad, this isn't so bad, at all. Got a great 80s syncth track to boot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jasons back& he's looking for more victims 1 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Jason Voorhees is DEAD! He was killed by 12 year old Tommey Jarvis in self defence. But if Jason is dead, then who is klling the inmates of the Unger Institute of Mental Health? Now eighteen Tommey is a resident at Unger Institute and is plagued by nightmares in which Jason is alive&trying to kill him. These nightmares now are turning into reality for tommy. Who is that stranger wearing a boiler suit and hockey mask whom only Tommy sees? Jasons back&he's killing the Institute people&also local town people leaving the police baffled. The cops think its Jason.......but Jasons dead right?
This is the worst of the seris but still has a few good kills. The best thing about this film is its good tiwst.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Of The Series 24 July 2011
This is a very poor instalment in the series. The main character Tommy Jarvis is portrayed by John Shepard in the worst acting performance i have ever seen on screen.He just stands there staring blankly EVERY time he is on screen The deaths are boring and the camera cuts away from nearly every killing and after the amazing gore work from Tom Savini in The Final Chapter,this film just seems so tame and shouldn't be rated 18. And 'Joey' the patient at the strt of the film is so annoying his 2 minutes on screen felt like 20 minutes. Characters appear and disappear without any plot or purpose and the just as i was about to say 'this films bad' i seen the ending and bad isnt a strong enough word.

An old soothe-sayer once told me "beware foggy-eyed, shell-shocked paramedics who stare into the camera, whose fixed gazes transform into murderous glares". And bugger me if he wasn't right! Good old Roy cuts quite a dash in his hockey-mask, offset wonderfully by the neon sign above his head.
When his poor, over-weight son is slaughtered like a pig at the local "happy-home", you seem to get the impression that he was killed for the awful crime of being the only "patient" at the home who doesn't fit the entrance criteria of being a vision of the body beautiful. No kidding, the girls are either voluptuously stunning, punkishly horny or cute bobby-socksers. The guys come across as the heterosexual equivelent of the Village People ie, something for everyone. Ladies, whether you like cute-as-a-button, or just a bit of rough-trade, you're in luck.
The violence level is upped, aided finally by the BBFC finally allowing all of the cut material to be restored, making this one of the juiciest of the series so far. And this is the juiciest of them in another respect: it has easily the greatest volume of naked flesh on show. No kidding, it should have had the subtitle "the Flash and Blood Show". Witness the waitress who stand in front of the mirror, unzipping her uniform and flashing to the cry of "Iiiiiiiiiiiittts SHOWTIME" shortly before getting an axe in the chest.
One rather dispicable element is the offing of several of the most sympathetic characters, probably in keeping with the policy of human perfection. This is an mental-home for the normal with only superfical problems. He has a speech impedament: DEAD. He's over-weight: DEAD. She's likes something different: DEAD.
