Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is about Tommy Jarvis who is responsible for killing the Jason Vorhees in the previous film Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984). The halfway house that Tommy Jarvis now starts to experience brutal killings at the halfway house and suspects that the murders are connected to his past.

This Friday the 13th movie used the same used up scenarios as previous films in the franchise but put a small and almost meaningless twist on the storyline. It seems that Jason has found a way to return from the grave, and begins stalking his prey around a home for mentally deranged teens. What has led him here? Apparently, he’s following Tommy Jarvis who stopped his reign of terror in the fourth movie. As the teens are knocked off via garden shears, decapitation, and road flares, there’s not a single clue given about the twist ending that’s to come. The series really lost whatever attraction it had with this lame entry.
