Friday the 13th: A New Beginning

Danny Steinmann Stany Zjednoczone, 1985

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning

The return to a psychological motive is appreciated; however, the film is still derivative of its predecessors & does little to overturn the worst excesses of the genre. Characters are only here to be killed off in a variety of gruesome ways, with most female victims dying in a state of undress. Suspense sequences are blandly shot, like a TV series, with none of the visual style of similar efforts by Bava or Argento.
