Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Five years after killing the goalie hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees, Tommy Jarvis has grown up in various mental hospitals unable to get over the nightmares about Jason's return. When Tommy is sent to a rural halfway house in New Jersey for mentally disturbed teenagers, a series of grisly murders begin anew as another hockey-masked killer begins killing off all people at and around the residence. Has Jason returned from the dead to re-start his killing spree? Has Tommy decided to take over the reign of Jason, or has someone else?Written by
After Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), director Danny Steinmann was lined up to direct a further five movies, but they all fell through. He was involved in a horrible bicycle accident that almost killed him not long after "Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning" was released and he spent years recuperating from it, and never returned to filmmaking, despite many attempts.

(at around 52 mins) Obvious stunt double for Tommy is beating up on Junior at the trailer park. See more »
There is an alternate version of the film which runs 91 minutes and contains several small and mostly inconsequential differences. These are:
"Version 2" is in the lower right hand corner throughout the movie.
There is no close-up of Jason pulling the machete out of Neil's stomach during the opening sequence.
Duke's (the paramedic) line is altered when he sees Joey's body. In the original version he says "Bunch of pussies..." while in Version 2 he says "I'll be damned...".
There is a different angle briefly used in Pete's death.
The scene in which Ethel yells at Junior as he is eating his stew is re-edited to remove the profanity, and uses some different angles.
When Demon is about to open the outhouse door, an alternate camera angle is used and some of the profanity he uses is cut from the scene.
After Junior is decapitated there is an alternate angle of Ethel in the kitchen, and her dialog is slightly altered.
The scene of Robin going to bed is re-edited to exclude some of her nudity and some dialog.
Before the above scene is a scene of Violet in her room which originally was part of a scene which occurred a few minutes later. When the scene happens a few minutes later, the footage that was previously used is not present.
When Pam fights off Roy with the chainsaw, she hits him twice in shoulder. Only the second hit appears in the original version.
When Roy dies, the camera stays on Pam, Tommy and Reggie instead of showing Roy falling on the spikes.
This is the best Jason to watch drunk, it's almost like a Friday the 13th blooper reel. I love the singing on the crapper part, the mod chick doing the robot, the "just wanna earn a meal" guy, Crazy Ethel and Junior, Billy and Llana, that kid from Diff'rent Strokes, the stupid arse ending, and the excessive nudity.
It's a time capsule of sorts, it captures all the bad 80's slasher films in a hour and a half. Bad acting? GOT IT! Ridiculous costumes? GOT IT! Lot's of big haired women topless? GOT IT! No name stars obviously coked out of they're mind? OH THIS MOVIE HAS GOT PLENTY OF THAT! Watch it and laugh, preferably with some friends
