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.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
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
The 'Friday the 13th' movies didn't actually go by their real titles during production, with this one called "Repetition" (a self-deprecating in-joke on the part of the producer). The actors usually figured this out during the casting process, but some of 'A New Beginning's' hadn't put it together until their first day on set, when stuntman Tom Morga walked by in full Jason Voorhees costume.

(at around 36 mins) Lana smears lipstick on her upper right lip, but when she turns at the cat's noise, it is pressed and perfect-looking. See more »

We know from the start that there is no way for it to really end well. I like it enough, but I don't think it's great or all that really good. I will never understand the hate for this movie. Still haunted by his gruesome past, Tommy Jarvis - the boy who killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if somehow he is connected to brutal slayings occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives. This is a story about a place most people might not be able to conceive. Fortunately the director lets the actors breathe and the music lets the atmosphere live. In the end, the audience gets a casserole of film elements. My final rating is 7/10. ( I am not saying the film is a classic, but it was pleasant.)
