->''"If Jason still haunts you, you're not alone!"''

'''''A New Beginning''''' is the fifth film in the ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'' series.

Several years have passed after Tommy Jarvis's traumatic encounter with Jason in ''The Final Chapter'', and he has been spending that time by going through a many mental institutes, with no sign of getting better. Now he has been moved to Pinehurst Cottage, a halfway house near Crystal Lake for troubled teenagers. Things don't start well when one of the residents is murdered by another, and soon afterwards a killer starts offing people in the surrounding area. Has Jason Voorhees returned once again?

* AxCrazy: Aside from the obvious, there's Victor, who hacks up Joey in a fit of rage.
* {{Badass}}: While Tommy ''definitely'' counts, Pam and Reggie also show their resilience . Pam manages to fight off the killer with a ''chainsaw'' and probably would've finished him off if it hadn't run out of gas. Reggie goes after the killer with an Earthmover and later ''tackles him out a window''.
* BerserkButton: Don't scare Tommy or touch his masks.
* BigDamnHeroes: Reggie saving Pam with an Earthmover.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The hockey mask in this film has blue markings on it instead of red ones, foreshadowing [[spoiler:that the real killer isn't Jason at all]].
** Then there's the moment [[spoiler:where a deputy tells Sheriff Tucker that there's maniac on the loose, and the camera then cuts to Roy giving them a glance]].
