I only gave it 2 stars because of the action and high body count. It deserves a 1 or 0. This is by far my least favorite of the Friday the 13th series. Don't get me wrong, it is a good movie, but it is so dissapointing when you watch it and find out the truth that you probably will say ''man that sucked''. The layout of it is like any other Friday the 13th movie so it is a must for anybody who wants to collect the series. This actually wouldn't be a bad movie if it wasn't for he twist and those who have actually seen it will understand why I was so dissapointed. I won't ruin it for anybody so if you are interested go buy or rent the movie.

This chapter still has powerful and brutal killings. Including victims the audience wants to see die, and ones who are innocent victims. The major flaw in this is simply that it wasn't Jason. The killings and fighting were done in a manner that a mere human couldn't have done. Putting on a Hockey Mask wouldn't give an impostor Jason's inhuman strength or his pain tolerance.
I enjoyed the idea of Tommy being traumatized by his childhood experience. How Jason metaphorically haunted him, how he was plagued by visions of Jason. Also how this chapter let's him face his fears, and set's the stage for Tommy's role in the next chapter.
The climax was also good. First Reggie rams Jason with a tractor. Second Pam duels Jason until the chainsaw runs out of fuel. Pam flees to the hayloft where Reggie is hiding. When Tommy first confronts the hockey-masked killer, he doesn't realize he not hallucinating again. Then he's slashed and he stabs Jason with a pocketknife, before climbing into the loft as well. When Jason comes into the loft Tommy still has enough strength to seize the machete, hack Jason in the hand, and send him falling down onto a bed of spikes. The hockey mask is removed revealing that the killer was an impostor - Roy Burns.
This isn't the worst chapter, but it's far from the best.

This one is just similar and alike Halloween 3. Don't bother but I thought it was okay until the end which I thought. OMG I can't believe I watched this whole ridiculious but then goes to the funny section. Still it goes to show that they must have weird characters or the movie won't be that interesting of fun to poke at. We see a character all grown up but is trying to face Voorhees even though he may have to prove his sanity while trying to do it. I give this a two since I was disappointed with the end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Alot of 'FRIDAY THE 13TH' Fans may disagree, but ''PART 5: A NEW BEGINNING(aka. Not 'The Next Chapter!')Is one of my all time favorite 'Psychological Suspense-Thriller Films of my time. Please allow me a few minutes of your time to show/explain to the audience why. First of let me give credit where Credit is merited: to the Makers= Producers,Writers & Director of ''A NEW BEGINING.'' Were it not for them Who knows if this series might've ended or headed in a diff' direction ...uhhm!!'anybody watched the most recent 'Hellraiser'or 'Children of the Corn'' endless 'lame-sequels.'My devotion & admiration for the ''FRIDAY-phenomenom''arose/came in 1985 with my first viewing (on-Video)of 'Friday-Part 4: The Final Chapter.' At the time I was only 10 years-old(I'm 27 now!)and althought it would take me a few more years to understand (totally)''the rules'' on how convincibly some,not all, horror/scary/scream films really work... needless to say I-like many- was scared to go in the woods--for few years afterwards. Being 10 or 11 I was scared, but also amazed,and grossed out but in a cool way because most of my friends in school had also wached it in theaters or rented it without their parents consent. ~What amazed me the most was 'THE FINAL CHAPTER's' 'cliff-hanger ending.' ~Perhaps some fans may be able to relate to this, on why this ending is so symbolic & important to my early teens, and later development into a young-adult. Watching/seeing/observing a young-Tommy Jarvis(Corey Feldman) slashing-responding-defending himself & his sister from a crazed maniac; by temporarily-& supposedly-disposing of a local psychological killer on the prowl. This traumatic point and episode in 'young/adult Tommy's' fictional-life(or anyone of us)is chronicled in 'FRIDAY-Part 4 & 5,6.' Can't/Couldn't anyone imagine-or see what their lives or destinys may have thru the eyes of a young-child/teen/adult 11,18,26. How their mind may and may not ever be the same after an intense episode(s) of RAGE. ~If only few-fans could put aside 'The Fact' & Mistake that the Producers of the 1980's Friday Films may have, originally groomed/intended/created a young-Tommy(Corey Feldman) to pick up the mantle of Jason Voorhees; sporting an all-new hockey mask, compared to the earlier films. The Producers may have failed with this original-intended plot. But only metaphorical speaking. Because from a intake Box-Office point of view,for this and future films(Exc: Part 8,9) they succeded. So much that the name spun-off a ''T.V.Series, with no reatlion to the mask, Tommy nor Jason. ~My intended puporse for this not so quick or short note is simply to share a similar-althought not this traumatic nor brutal- life experience, and simply trying to show or prove the point that not all traumatic experiences lead or are destined for damnation or a tragic doom. Not all 'Exorcisms(1973)-of sorts- lead/end with the (failed/repentent)Priest jumping out a window to his doom/damnation-suicide. There are few stories with happy endings. Some more real than others. ~ On a last 'FRIDAY-note,'compare the ending of 'A NEW BEGINNING(5)' with a shot/picture of young-Tommy picking up the'New-Hockey mask (Roy's-mask not Jason's);staring at it; resembling/kinda like a Hamlet/Othello play-where there's this character who picks up a skull-Tommy looks into the masks(his) eyes. Waiting for sign. Waiting for an answer. Waiting for a RESOLUTION to his hallucinations,troubles,& uncontrollable explosive fits/episodes of RAGE & MADNESS. ~ Tommy keeps on staring at the mask, and the mask's staring back at hyim. ~ Tommy looks on as if waiting for Jason to take him under his mantle. ~ Tommy's waiting for Jason, or Jason's waiting for Tommy to take over his unfinished work back at the lake. ~ To put on the mask,grab the big-kitchen knife-which appears unexplainably out of nowhere-and carry the ''FRIDAY'' franchise to greener pastures. ~ Then watch the opening for'FRIDAY 6.'Not only does the sWas this review helpful?
