13.5 poster

Has been a really couple of busy weeks, so I have fallen a little behind on reviewing the Friday the 13th films. So to start the catching up, I thought it would be a good idea to live tweet Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985). Check out the results.

Updated franchise ranking below:

  1. Friday the 13th Part 2
  2. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter
  3. Friday the 13th
  4. Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning
  5. Friday the 13th Part III

  1. I dig this one. Stays true to the formula, but director Danny Steinmann aims for more of an exploitation feel

    1. Thanks for commenting. Yeah I did like some of the more exploitation elements/feel. Just really didn’t work for me overall unfortunately.

  2. C’mon, it’s not that bad. I agree with Last Road Reviews up there.

    John Cena would “overcomes the odds” in a fight with Jason Voorhees, no-sell his moves and make him tap out to the STF in less than a minute. Then, he’d give a speech about never giving up, never surrendering, and doing it all for the cancer kids. Cos he loves this business, Jack.

    1. Haha, love your breakdown of a Cena starring Friday the 13th film. Perhaps WWE films can get their hands on the rights?

  3. “This is the most awkward wooing scene since I drunkenly professed my love for someone in an insurance company elevator.” — hahah! Thats always such a pain in the ass.

    I think I’ll skip this one well and truly. Not even seen the original, good version of Friday the 13th (working on that).

    1. We’ve all had our insurance company elevator moments.

      I personally didn’t love the first one, but plenty do. If you are looking for really fun, slightly silly 80s slashers, then I have really enjoyed numbers VI and VII of this series recently. You could jump in there.
