Trivia

The BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) demanded a total of 24 minutes worth of cuts to the film before its release in the UK. At the time, the BBFC had a virtually zero tolerance to sexual violence, and the use of a crossbow. See more »

Goofs

Cindy is wearing straplike sandals that secure around the ankle during the fight scene between her and Brenda in Mr. Meeker's science class. When the fight breaks out, both girls are on the ground for no more than 30 seconds, and when Cindy gets up without her top and runs to the door, she is seen without shoes, and that particular style could not likely have fallen off or be easily removed during the fight.

masterpiece, the greatest movie of the 80s

Holy God, this is truly a work of art. Danny Steinmann is an underrated master of cinema. He has done some of the best film ever made. Friday the 13th part V is one of them. This movie got everything, sexy Linda Blair doing nude scenes, plenty of action, an awesome soundtrack. This flick deserves to be on dvd with plenty of extras. Watch Linda Blair as she goes against a gang of nasty bad guys and try to avenge her sister's rape. Classic stuff here everyone! It 's a crying shame that this movie is out of print. Try to find it and you will love it, at least if you have good taste in movies.

masterpiece **** out of ****
