Friday the 13th - A New Beginning is a well done installment in the horror series. Tommy Jarvis, the boy Jason terrorised in 'The Final Chapter', has taken residence at the local mental hospital due to the brutal loss of his mother and family. Tommy starts geting visions of Jason and the murders begin, again. A great sequel, but most people hate this film because Jason is not involved, but this has some classic deaths, some sound acting and a fairly decent plot, plus it has some lovable characters (but it also has it's fair share of annoying ones!). Still all you can do is give it a try.

When released fans were outraged that another Friday movie was given the green light after the brilliant 4th installments ending. Jason was ready to die. So along came Part 5 and to everyone's surprise the movie contained not Jason, remember he's dead, but an imposter instead.

Taken as a slasher film, the movie is quite good. True it's the same old teenage characters getting chopped to bits, and true imposter Jason sure kills and has the strength of normal Jason, but the kills are inventive, and what more would you expect from a Friday film?

The sex scenes seem a little more ramped up and once you know Danny Steinmann is directing that is normal since he was involved in the porn industry in the 70s.

Jason fans should actually like this one, especially if your expectations are low after all of the negative reviews. This isn't so bad, this isn't so bad, at all. Got a great 80s syncth track to boot.

This was the fifth film in the Friday The 13th series and was originally released in 1985. It also features a small cameo from Corey Feldman, who played Tommy Jarvis in the previous film and appears briefly here. However, this is one of my least favourite films of the series, for several reasons. First of all, there is no Jason doing the killing this time, though the identity of the real killer soon becomes very obvious, so the film feels more like a whodunnit than a slasher film. It just doesn't have the essence of what makes the other Friday films watchable. This is also supposed to be the uncut version, with all previous BBFC cuts reinstated, but the extra bits of gore are nothing very special, though we do see a bit more nudity in the film than in previous versions as well. The killings are also tamer than usual, with the camera either cutting away from the crucial moments, or masking the murder scenes in other ways. So, this film is a disappointment on almost every level, it has never been one of my favourites and that is why I give it only two stars. The previous film and Part 6: Jason Lives are both far superior to this film, so save your money and buy those instead. You won't miss a thing if you don't watch this film. Trust me.

Yep, another Friday The 13th sequel. This one is not one of the best, however, at this price, it's well worth it just to see the REAL star of the show - the young Reckless Reggie who runs around in his red tracksuit for most of the film with a high-pitched squeal.
This time, Tommy is sure he is seeing psycho-killer Jason Vorhees all over the joint, however, is Jason just an illusion, or back from the dead? Woooo!
Also look out for a cameo from "Demon", who plays "Spider" in "Return Of The Living Dead", as Reckless Reggie's brother...and remember, never rely on Reckless in an emergency, he will run as fast as he can away from you when you're in trouble, and all you'll see is a blur of red tracksuit.

The grown up kid from the fourth film is haunted by, and eventually possessed by, the spirit of Jason Voorhees (in a similar way that Jason's spirit possesed his mother in the first film). Jason's sudden appearances are actually quite shocking. Meanwhile, a copycat killer in a hockey mask cuts his way through the locals, including kids at Tommy's mental home. Gratuitous violence and nudity round off my favourite of the Friday films. Good, if you like this sort of thing. Many don't.

Format: DVD
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is directed by Danny Steimann who also co-writes with Martin Kitrosser and David Cohen. It stars Melanie Kinnaman, John Shepherd, Shavar Ross and Richard Young. Music is by Harry Manfredini and cinematography by Stephen L. Posey. The fifth film in the Friday the 13th series, plot follows on from part 4 and finds Jason Vorhees' young killer Tommy Jarvis (Shepherd) now as a troubled young man. After spending years moving from various institutions, Tommy's latest home is the Pinehurst Youth Development Center, and pretty soon after his arrival it appears that Vorhees has risen from the grave and is killing everyone in the vicinity....

Well it ultimately wasn't a new beginning in the context of the franchise, but it is a different "Friday" picture. With a fresh idea at its core, and carrying a genuine mystery element, there was a boldness lurking somewhere amongst the brains trust behind the picture. However, these nifty ideas are undercut by insipid direction, bad acting and a blatant attempt to be crude and mean spirited. It isn't hard to figure out that director Steinmann was once a pornography director, for the film plays out as a series of nudity for nudes sake sequences, engulfed by a meaty killing every other five minutes. You can only have so much of each before it gets boring, and A New Beginning gets boring very quickly. Thus making the only reason to stay with the picture is to learn the big "reveal" of the new hockey mask wearing lunatic. It may be enough for undemanding horny horror fans, but it's an undeniably lazy picture.

Still, there's a little comfort in that the makers added some twists, and the film, if you can look around the breasts and meat cleaver, actually has some of the best colour photography in the franchise so far.
