Friday the 13th: A New Beginning Review


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.

This Friday used the same used up scenario as previous films 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.
