Uh, Jason?

on 9/24/2012

Tommy from part 4 is back and is trying to deal with his tramatic experiences with Jason. Sent into the woods with other young people with mental problems they start getting killed off by Jason, or is it? Honestly this movie isn't that great. If you haven't figured out the twist by the end I don't think you even tried to figure it out. They hint at where they expect the series to go after the final scene, but they give up on that idea in part six.

Product Overview

Another film has come and gone with the absence of any camp counselors. That's not necessarily a bad thing. By putting the jason voorhees character in minute variations of his slaughtering ground, the filmmakers have kept the films interesting.

Review Well, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter wasn't the worst entry in the series by a long shot and, in my opinion, it would have been a great place to end the series. Unfortunately, The Final Chapter wasn't the last word and even for a big Friday fan like me, A New Beginning is a tough movie to love. It isn't impossible to enjoy this movie and there are some funny over-the-top characters here that are fun to watch, but everything just doesn't click. All the elements that make up a Friday the 13th movie are here, in one form or another. You've got your psycho in a hockey mask, some horny teens, colorful locals, and the largest body count in the series to date. Despite all of this, the movie somehow manages to be less than the sum of its parts...The kills, although plentiful and varied, are not very well done and not very interesting, the pseudo-Jason as played by Wieand is not scary and lacks the power of those that have gone before and those that will come after. The story, even though it took at least four writers to pound it out, is not as incoherent as some reviewers have said, but it is not engaging. We Friday fans don't expect a lot from a Friday script, but we do have some standards. They are certainly low, but not low enough to enjoy this movie...If you are a Friday completest like me, you should probably have it in your collection. If you are a casual fan, please see another film in the series and please don't judge the whole series by this movie if it is the only one you've seen. To be honest, if I had been a bit older and wiser when this came out and if Jason hadn't returned in the next installment, this movie could have been enough to turn me cold on the series. If you knew what an avid Friday fan I am, you'd know how much I disliked this one. With everything from the music to the main title graphics, it is obvious that they were trying to recreate the feel and success of the original. They, most assuredly, did not.

Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine The spiciest entry in the series, it boasts the most T&A, an incredible double homicide, a witty reference to A Place in the Sun, and yokels chopping chickens.
Fred Topel, ...the best nudity of the entire series!
