A new killer stalks teens at a halfway house
and Tommy Jarvis starts thinking he is connected.
Friday the 13th Part V:
I was actually pleasantly surprised by the fifth entry in the Friday the 13th series. While the killer isn't actually Jason Voorhees, the movie is still pretty entertaining and becomes a sort of who-dun-it? as the audience tries to figure out who the man behind the mask really is.
The characters are incredibly dull, however, but that's to be expected with movies like this. The kills are much tamer than the previous entry, but that's probably because Jason isn't doing the killing. I remain pleasantly entertained by this franchise and look forward to the next entry.
The middle chapter in the Tommy Jarvis trilogy proves to be quite entertaining, even though it's not Jason killing people (at this point it's not a spoiler alert, trust me). The film adopts a more mystery approach with the characters trying to figure out if it's Jason killing people or a copycat. Speaking of characters, as per usual with the series, they are not incredibly interesting.
The kills are slightly tamer in this entry, for the most part. There are two that do stand out, one in particular being iconic for the franchise. So, even though this is one of the least liked ones due to Jason's absence, I still found this to be a very enjoyable entry that retained the spirit of the franchise.
