Friday the 13th Part V: Jason's Legacy
'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!
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!
With a trimmed story, dialogue and removed characters this is the definitive version of this film. Kudos.
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.
This was a very enjoyable take on F13 #5. The first time I watched this movie I hated it, mainly because of the twist ending. But on further rewatches I have grown to like it. It's not in my Top 5 for the franchise, it's in the middle. This edit aims to move it along and cut down the 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 (unless you're some Canadian in love with the original).
