Friday the 13th, Part V - A New Beginning Review
Written by: ShawnStaggs
Tommy Jarvice is all grown up, but sufferes horribly from his childhood experience with Jason Voorhees. He know resides at a country mental facility, and struggles daily with his fears. Fears that Jason will come back for him. And these fears have ruled his life.
For the most part, things seem average and normal...until and accident leaves one of the patients dead. Two paramedics come for the body, and one of them seems very disturbed. Then, following this event, more patients start to die in a series of grisly murders. And Tommy is getting very concerned.
Finally the killer shows himself, wearing a hockey mask, and setting his sights on Tommy. Has Jason returned?
The two end up in a deadly confrontation, leaving the killer impaled. Then we discover that this "Jason" is only a copy-cat...and also the father of the patient killed in that horrible accident.
My thoughts? Well, the whole story of Tommy needing to face his fears and recover is a good idea, but that should have been done with the real Jason right off the rip. This is one of my least favorite films in the series.
A copy-cat Jason? Lame!
