Movie Summary

Danny Steinmann
Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning is a 1985 horror/slasher film directed by Danny Steinmann and is the fifth film of the famous "Friday the 13th" series. Jason is back. They thought he was dead, like they always do, they should really learn by now that nothing can stop him- he's that incorrigible about slicing teenagers open. Enter Tommy, a tortured survivor from Camp Crystal Lake who lived through Jason's last set of attacks. He's sent to a halfway house for troubled teens and hopefully to a place of safety. It happens to be anything but because if his own inmates don't attack and kill each other, a mysterious new murder will. People begin getting murdered. Everyones a suspect. But Tommy is lead to believe that it seems like Jason is sort of a completist of sorts. He probably wants Tommy dead and is willing to hack through any amount of troubled teens to get the job done. Will Tommy be lucky enough to survive this second round? Or has his time finally come? A new beginning to an old classic.moreless
