Series: Friday the 13th

Review: Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)

Well, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter wasn’t the worst entry in the series by a long shot and, in my opinion, it would have been a great place to end the series. Unfortunately, The Final Chapter wasn’t the last word and even for a big Friday fan like me, A New Beginning is a tough movie to love. It isn’t impossible to enjoy this movie and there are some funny over-the-top characters here that are fun to watch, but everything just doesn’t click. All the elements that make up a Friday the 13th movie are here, in one form or another. You’ve got your psycho in a hockey mask, some horny teens, colorful locals, and the largest body count in the series to date.(read more...)

After two excellent predecessors, loyal Friday the 13th fans were raving for another romp in the woods with Jason when this movie came out in 1983 (and it was even going to be in 3D!). I know that I for one was plotting and scheming to find a way into a theater to see it. After several thwarted attempts, I eventually did. The question is, was it all we thought it would be? Was I disappointed? No, I wasn't, but I was 11 and had even lower viewing standards than I do now and they still aren't that high. Even with the excitement of seeing a new Friday the 13th movie, I felt, even then, that something was just not the same. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a great movie at the time, but it just didn't have the same punch as the first 2.(read more...)
