5. Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning
A new beginning indeed… The fifth film in the increasingly slacklustre franchise only served to anger fans by trying something different (the horror!)
Set eight years after the events of The Final Chapter, the fifth film is focused on the Pinehurst Halfway House, which is where Tommy Jarvis (now played by John Shepherd, though portrayed in flashback by Corey Feldman).
Feldman was originally supposed to play Tommy, but his work on a little film called The Goonies got in the way.
As usual, a good-looking set of young people - albeit a bunch with plenty of emotional and psychological issues - are stalked, slashed, gutted and burned by a masked killer.
Despite switching directors again,the movie kept up s couple of traditions - one was using a David Bowie song ('Repetition') as a working title to stop plot leaks and the other being issues with the ratings board.
The footage required nine trips into the editing room before the MPAA would give it an R rating instead of an X.
But - spoiler alert! - it's revealed to not be Jason Voorhees this time, but a paramedic enraged after his son is killed by one of the patients. And then adds to it by having Tommy hallucinate the original Jason and seem to take over his killing ways again. The music even shifts to include the phrase, "to-to-to ki-ki-ki-ki-ki", meaning "Tommy kill"
Suffice to say it didn't go down well with the fan base, who hated the changes. The movie only ended up making $21.9 million.
But Tommy and Jason would return…
