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
Tommy's opening dream was different in the original script, and arguably made him seem more of a suspect later on. It opens as a continuation of the ending of the previous film - Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) - as a young Tommy is taken to the same hospital as Jason's corpse. Then, in a sudden fit of psychotic rage, he winds up attacking half the hospital staff trying to get to the morgue to find Jason's bloodied body. Once he has finally found the body, Jason suddenly rises from the autopsy table. Immediately after this, the adult Tommy wakes up in the van, en route to the Pinehurst house. See more »
(at around 9 mins) When Tommy is dropped off at Pinehurst, the way he holds his bag changes between shots as he walks through the door with Pam. See more »
Jason Voorhees isn't in this one...come on people,so what?
"Friday the 13th:A New Beginning" isn't as bad as those above me keep saying it is.I'm not entirely sure why so many people hate this entry-OK so Jason wasn't there,but there's plenty of violence to satisfy b-horror movie fans and nobody acts any worse than before.Of course this one isn't as good as the previous ones,mainly because it lacks the first four films mean spirited edge,but it is still a pretty enjoyable slasher flick.There's also no real blood or gore as most of the killings appear to take place simply off-camera,but I don't mind that.If I want to be sickened by extreme gore I'll watch again "Guinea Pig:Flowers of Flesh and Blood" instead of this,but if I want to see an enjoyable slasher with plenty of nudity I'll choose this one.The plot is simple:the traumatized Tommy Jarvis(John Shepherd),who killed Jason in the previous entry arrives at the Pinehurst home for disturbed teens run by Matt(Richard Young)and Pam(Melanie Kinnaman),soon befriending a good-natured young boy named Reggie(Shavar Ross),whose grandfather works as the institution's cook.Not long after his arrival,Tommy sees an angry patient named Vic(Mark Venturini)hack a fat teen(Dominick Brascia,the same guy who directed forgotten 80's slasher "Evil Laugh")to death with an axe.Over twenty more murders follow,but who is the killer? All in all I enjoyed this one,so you should check it out for yourself.
