Brief Synopsis:
Jason Voorhees is dead - killed at the hands of 12 year old Tommy Jarvis. Now, 6 years later an institutionalized Tommy is plagued by nightmarish images of the psychopath he killed. He is taken to a Pinehurst Halfway House in an attempt to reintroduce him into society. However, when a spate of murders starts up around Pinehurst, it looks very much like the work of Jason. But Jason is dead... isn't he?

'Jason's Legacy' is an attempt to streamline a movie which suffers from characters who are introduced solely to be killed off straight away. The idea is to refocus the killings on the inmates of Pinehurst as much as possible. Heavy colour correction also attempts to paint the film in the same light as Joseph Zito's excellent preceding chapter, 'The Final Chapter'. Happy Friday the 13th!
Intention:
I'm a huge Friday the 13th fan, but I've always had problems with Part V so I wanted to try and refocus the film and bring it more in line with how 'The Final Chapter' felt.
Special Thanks:
Sophie Welch, Nadia Quarcoopome.

I liked this edit a lot, it cuts a lot of unnecessary deaths and focuses only on the people at the clinic. With a trimmed story, dialogue and removed characters this is the definitive version of this film. I never really liked this movie, mainly because of the twist ending so the fact that I actually enjoyed it tells just how much it's better then the original in my eyes. With all the cut down lame side-characters, keeping the story focused on the main group of kids, I thought that was well done and the story never dragged for me. I definitely recommend this if you're going to do a Friday the 13th marathon and you don't want to waste too much time with Part V and this is definitely my go version in the future.

It's amazing how much a film can improve once you remove a bunch of pointless scenes.

I liked this edit a lot. It cuts a lot of unnecessary deaths and focuses only on the interns and the crew from the mental clinic. Anyway I think the edit could maintain the kid´s older brother´s death and the redneck death. It would show that "Jason" was stalking the interns and they relatives. But I liked this edit a lot, congratulations!

Hey tipoc... thanks for the review. Yeah, I almost kept the murder of Reggie's brother, but I suppose at the same time I wanted to keep the movie moving and maintaining the focus as much as possible on Tommy. Glad you enjoyed it though.

Thanks haseo... always nice to hear that word "definitive" ;) However, it's just meant as an alternate way to watch it. I never really intend to replace films as such. Well, maybe a little in my own mind I do, but hey... glad you had fun.

I loved this edit. I've always loved Part. 5 for its sleazy-ness. Its honestly the most Friday The 13th film of the series in terms of what you think of when you think of the series. It has the most kills, the most tits, the best tits I might add, and the most exploitation feel. I like it for all its faults and its honestly my second favorite in the series after Part 4. I feel that Part 4 and 6 are actually well made films, while 5 is enjoyable on so many levels to me for all of the things that make it bad. The lead actor honestly gives probably the best performance out of all of the Friday films and all the wacky side characters help to enhance his standout acting and give it a certain charm. I love this edit as a true follow up to Part 4, but it doesn't replace the fun sleazy feeling of watching the original cut. I love the original cut of Part 5 in the same way I love Part 8, its just good old 80's charming fun. Thank you for this edit, because now I can decided whether to watch Part 5 as a sleazy exploitation film or as an actually good slasher film. Both versions are great in my eyes.

Thanks dustin6595... seems in your case, I succeeded at my attempt to offer a more streamlined alternative for Part V ;) Thanks for your kind words.
