Underrated the weakest one in the franchise but still watchable my favorite slasher

Underrated Friday the 13th: A New Beginning is not a bad slasher film like everyone keeps saying. I love this film for the slasher horror genre, gore, nudity and entertainment. It is in my 6th favorite "Friday the 13th" film. Melanie Kinnaman was one hot babe and great heroine, she was good and her performance was decent. Melanie Kinnaman is the reason to watch this movie she is my fifth favorite final girl. Yes I put this movie over Friday the 13th: Part VII: The New Blood because I enjoy it that much. Different then the first four movies, but the film is perfectly fine. Just because it tried something different it is bad? no it is fine I love this film to death. There is no Jason in here so whatever I love this film.

There are creative deaths in the series, has a gore and the special effects for the kills hold up and they are good. Not really the strongest film in the franchise I found it the weakest one, but still watchable and I found it more enjoyable than Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood. Yes I have enjoyed this movie much more then the last 4 films that come out after Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. It is not a bad one it is a step down from The Final Chapter but still watchable movie. It is in my 6th rank in the Friday the 13th franchise and I still have fun with this film.

The dinner scene was a fantastic death scene. Rebecca Wood as Lana was a good victim and I like the death kill. When the killer beheaded that biker guy Junior it was a good kill I like it. Tom Morga was a fantastic hockey-masked killer. Juliette Cummins as Robin was a hot great sexy babe. I like her as a victim. My favorite death scene is in which masked killer with an axe kills that junkie in front the dinner. Corey Feldman returns in this movie as Tommy Jarvis in the opening scene and I love his performance another reason to watch this movie. I like this film it is an alright slasher film not a bad one at all, like most people are claiming. I am still going to watch this film. Watchable.

The film did grown on me but the problem with the film in my opinion Is the lack of story because I don't know what this film has to do with A Friday the 13th when the story is set somewhere else away from Crystal Lake. They screwed up our favorite hero Tommy Jarvis in my opinion John Shepard is incredible lame as Tommy Jarvis and the screenwriter wrote Tommy Jarvis really dull, confused and he looked like he was on drugs in this movie really high.

Danny Steinmann R.I.P. who is no longer with us anymore. I respect Mr. Danny Steinmann and his vision of the movie what he was trying to do. Please my remorse goes to his family and rest in peace Danny you are really missed.

Friday the 13th: A New Beginning grew on me and I didn't thought it was horrible, it is still watchable.

A new beginning?

'Friday the 13th' may have been panned by critics when first released but since then it is one of the most famous and influential horror films, the franchise containing one of horror's most iconic villains. The film is popular enough to become a franchise and spawn several sequels of varying quality and generally inferior to the one that started it all of.

The fifth film in the series 'A New Beginning' is the most maligned 'Friday the 13th' film by critics and fans, although it has garnered a cult following and its fair share of defence over time. To me, 'A New Beginning' is better than its reputation and that it tries to do something different is laudable. Also do not think it's the worst 'Friday the 13th' film. Having said that, the disappointment is understandable. There are good merits here, but it also did fall short to me.

Starting with 'A New Beginning's' strengths, the best things about it are the as ever haunting music score and the terrific performance, both disturbing and moving, of John Shepherd. There are a few darkly funny moments, a few creepy ones and some of the death scenes are creative.

The nightmare sequences are stylish and as nightmarish as one would hope. It's a pretty decent looking film, not cinematic art (but in all honesty that can never be expected from a 'Friday the 13th' film) but not amateurish.

However, there are things that work against 'A New Beginning'. From my understanding, It is not that the film is different in the lack of Jason (this didn't bother me at all and is an insignificant issue), the more tongue-in-cheek tone and the idea it tried to introduce that irked fans, but the generally misguided way it was executed.

More problematic are the problems as a standalone. The acting is not good (Shepherd is the sole exception), Melanie Kinnaman being awful, and the clumsy and far too simple dialogue, that slips more into vulgar camp than darkly tongue-and-cheek, and the mostly annoying and dull stereotypes passing for characters fare worse (the only one to be interesting and get proper development is Tommy).

'A New Beginning' has the highest body count, and while there are some creative and unsettling deaths (others less so, hurt by gratuity and predictability) it was almost as if there were too many death scenes that gives one not that much time to compose themselves after each one. There is not enough suspense, the creepiness is too far and between and the story is thin and very hackneyed, with one of the series' silliest endings. The mystery elements don't work, being far too obvious, and neither does the identity of the killer, the killings committed by somebody that is not in it much in their real guise and doesn't have much presence.

In summation, not that bad and not deserving of its black sheep reputation but a long way from being great. 5/10 Bethany Cox
