Director/writer Danny Steinmann was originally offered a two-picture deal to direct a 'Friday the 13th' sequel as well as a The Last House on the Left (1972) sequel, the latter ultimately falling through. At that time, Steinmann had just made his official directorial debut with Savage Streets (1984). However, he'd actually been working in exploitation cinema under various pseudonyms since 1973, starting with the hardcore sex comedy High Rise (1973). That was Steinmann's only adult film, an attempt to make a "better" version of Deep Throat (1972), but it did speak to the sleazy sensibilities he brought to 'A New Beginning'. 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.)
