Plot: 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.
Review: Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is a slasher film that’s a part of the hit Friday the 13th franchise. In my opinion, this is when the franchise started to decline, but I do have to say that this film was enjoyable. Friday the 13th: A New Beginning may not be the best film, but it’s nowhere near the worst. Give it a try! Just to let all of you know, the entire Friday the 13th franchise is now on Netflix!
The story to Friday the 13th: A New Beginning was pretty enjoyable. It mainly focuses on Tommy Jarvis (who is now grown up), who gets sent to a crazy persons house and continues to have nightmares of what happened when he was younger. When killings start to happen he automatically thinks Jason is the culprit and boy was he right. Now although the film did focus on Tommy I do believe that the directors tried to make this movie like the previous film where the young boy is the main character (Reggie), which I found enjoyable. I really did love seeing Tommy’s fear throughout the movie and I’m glad they put that in this story, good job by the directors! I also guarantee that you will never guess the ending as well, it was completely unexpected and shocked me the first time I watched it!How was the acting? The acting in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning wasn’t that great to be completely honest. John Shepherd, Melanie Kinnaman, and Shavar Ross gave decent performances, but nothing great. The supporting cast was just terrible, so don’t expect anything big from the actors in this movie.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning provides the viewer with some scares. Just like all the other films, this movie won’t make you terrified, it just provides you with a few scenes that can possibly make you jump. The blood was a little low in this movie, but there were plenty of gruesome scenes to make up for that. Although most of the kills weren’t actually shown, the viewer still knew what was happening and it gave us enough thrills to enjoy Friday the 13th: A New Beginning. In my opinion, they could’ve done a little better in this category. Overall Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is a decent film that you can enjoy. The story was entertaining and did keep the me into the movie. As for the acting, I hated nearly everyones performance and they kind of bored me. Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is not a terrifying movie, so don’t expect anymore then a few scenes that can make you jump. There were some thrills that made this movie enjoyable, but I still felt like they could’ve done better in that category. If you haven’t seen Friday the 13th: A New Beginning give it a try, it’s not the best movie you will ever see, but you may be able to enjoy it. Make sure you check out all the Friday the 13th movies on Netflix!
