A New Beginning is the fifth film in the Friday the 13th 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?
This film has examples of:
Aborted Arc: The Sequel Hookshow that Tommy is wearing a hockey mask and is presumably going to attack Pam. This isn't followed on the next film.
Asshole Victim: OH GOD, the amount of them in this one. Makes the asshole victims in the remake or most Horror reboots/remakes look like saints!
Ax-Crazy: 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.
When Joey sees Tommy's arrival to Pinehurst, he wonders aloud that "he must be the new kid".
The next day after Joey's death, Violet is informed that she set too many places on the breakfast table. Fair enough, people make mistakes, but then Jake falls on this territory by telling her that "you don't set a place for dead person".
Cat Scare: Diner's cat scares Lana when she's about to go out with Billy.
Flipping the Bird: After giving her ultimatum to stay away from her property to the residents of Pinehurst, Ethel hops on her son's motorcycle and gives Sheriff Tucker the finger before leaving the scene.
Heroic BSOD: Tommy, when he's not panicking or attacking anyone.
Hostile Weather: It's raining and thundering in the opening and the climax.
Idiot Ball: Pinehurst. While it is fair enough, that they let the kids do whatever they want, as it's supposed to help them re-enter society. However doing so, allows two of the residences to go outside their boundaries and have sex on Ethel's farm which nearly get them arrested as well as later on killed.
