Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning
The murderous spirit of Jason Vorhees lives on in this horror sequel, although the plot hinges on the mystery of whether the killer's body actually survives. Opening with a nightmare prologue in which Corey Feldman reprises his role as Tommy Jarvis, the boy who killed Jason in the previous installment, the film jumps forward several years to when a teenaged Tommy (John Shepherd), haunted by visions of Jason returning to life, moves into a group home for mentally disturbed kids.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The plot twists may offer something different from the series, actually having a little more in common with the first film than any other. However, this wasn't that original."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Let's make it an old ending! Enough slashing and dicing!"
‑ Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com
"The spiciest entry in the series, it boasts the most T&A, an incredible double homicide, a witty reference to A Place in the Sun, and yokels chopping chickens."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Like most of the film's in this series, it's seldom more than just about adequate. Love the flare-in-the-mouth kill, though."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"This one just annoyed me."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Jason doesn't show up, which sucks."
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"While it is safe to say none of these movies was particularly worth making, I believe Part 5 is the one that brought the least for our collective edification."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"too cumbersome for its own good, with moments of black humor that don't really work and a painful lack of imagination"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"The tone is crude, raunchy, and leering, with kill scenes combined with more nudity than usual."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine
"This is not a fun stupid movie. This is a stupid movie that makes me want to claw my skin off."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The worst Jason story, but the best nudity of the entire series!"
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Jason's faux-comeback is a dreary and uninvolving affair."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
