Product Description

Amazon.ca

As bad as Friday the 13th, Part 2 is, it's a work of art in comparison to the rest of the Friday the 13th flicks that came afterward. This installment officially introduced us to Jason Voorhees as the killer (if you remember Drew Barrymore's fatal phone quiz in Scream, you know that the killer in the first Friday the 13th was actually Jason's mother), and made the slicing and dicing even more generic. Survivor Alice is dispatched within the first 10 minutes, and we're left with plucky Ginny (Amy Steel, doing a fairly decent Jamie Lee Curtis impression) to do battle with the monstrous Jason. Ginny's part of a another group of horny teenagers (less intelligent as well as less attractive than their predecessors) who try to resurrect Camp Crystal Lake five years after the initial murders--a pretty mean feat, considering this movie was made only a year after the first one. Being a smarty-pants child-psychology major, Ginny tries to outwit the dim Jason, and at one point dons the bloody and moldy sweater of Jason's late mother (which is more disgusting than any of the killings beforehand) in an attempt to confuse the masked killer. Jason may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, but the only one who's going to pull the wool--or in this case, the burlap--over his eyes is Jason himself, who wears a sack with one eyehole throughout the movie to hide his deformed features (he finally found his way to a sporting-goods store and his trademark hockey mask appears in the third installment of the series). Directed by Steve Miner, who also helmed the next Friday the 13th film (in 3-D no less) as well as the more reputable House, Forever Young, and Halloween: H20. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

for me,this sequel to the original was just slightly better,and only
because there is some suspense in this one.i don't think the first one
had any.if it did there was very little.otherwise,it's not that much
different,just a different group of people that end up getting
slaughtered.there are no acting stand outs in this one,but i get the
feeling that Amy Steel was supposed to be the next big thing.this movie
was slightly more graphic than the original,but not much.there's a bit
of nudity,and one instance of the F word being used,but that's it for
coarse language and nudity,as far as far as i can tell.for me,Friday
the 13th Part 2 is a 3/5

Format: DVD
As far as I'm concerned, Friday the 13th Part II is the best film in the whole series. Moms did some nice work, but now it's time for the real killing machine to take over. Jason doesn't have the hockey mask yet, and he's not yet the seemingly inhuman, unstoppable killing force he will become, but he definitely earned slasher rookie of the year for his efforts in this film. He doesn't have the scary presence of a Michael Myers, but Jason is all about ruthless, efficient killing. The first few minutes of the film, featuring flashbacks to the climactic scenes of the original, are pretty annoying, but the rest of this film is a great, unsettling ride.

Frankly, I never cared for Alice (Adrienne King), the sole survivor of the first film, so I had no problem with Jason clearing up the only loose end left by his dear, beheaded mother(speaking of unsettling, poor Adrienne King soon left the business altogether because of an ardent fan who began stalking her). Once the extended of the way, we head back to Camp Crystal Lake - actually, another campsite on the lake - where a camp counselor training center is drawing a new cast of potential victims right into Jason's backyard. With the exception of Ted (Stu Charno), I actually liked these young people. The guys are less annoying and the girls are prettier than those in the first film. I must admit I was taken aback by the presence of a cute little dog named Muffin being brought into the danger zone, though. (Do what you want to the people, but I have to draw the line at killing cute little animals.) Even good old Ralphie is back to warn the kids that they are certainly doomed. But come on - it's been five years since the last murders, and everyone knows Jason is just a legend, right?

Friday the 13th Part 2 has a lot of things going for it. It is not only the first sequel to the immensely popular original, it has some pretty good kills, and is the only entry in the series until the 2009 remake that has Jason wearing a potato sack on his head and cringing at a chainsaw. I have the entire series on DVD, and when I discovered that it was coming on Blu Ray, I made plans to rebuy it. The only question is, after 3 years, why haven't they released part 4? It is a known fact that Paramount was always embarassed at the popularity of it. But the part 2 Blu Ray is well worth the money, spotting an impressive 1080p high resolution video and a dolby trueHDsoundtrack, as well as the original mono. There is a bit of grain here and there, but overall a very satisfying purchase.

Format: DVD
Director: Steve Miner
Cast: Amy Steel, John Furey, Adrienne King, Betsy Palmer.
Running Time: 87 minutes.
Rated R for violence, gore, and language.
While most horror sequels are laughable compared to the successful originals, this second installment in the endless series is just as good, if not better than the original. Director Steve Miner creates a film that is actually very terrifying, with many sudden jumps, jolts, pitchforks flying through walls, and maniac hands crashing unexpectedly through windows. The basic premise of the film is about the resurrected thought-to-be-dead Jason Voorhees, who returns to Crystal Lake camp to avenge his drowning fifteen years before.
Amy Steel is fair in the lead heroine role, running around frantically as he finds more counselor dead bodies spread throughout the camp. "Friday the 13th, Part 2" is no horror classic and it has lost some of its luster in its over 20 years of age, but fans of the series or those who want a good scare should give this sequel (the best one in the series) a chance. Please note: Jason Voorhees DOES NOT wear hockey mask to hide his image, he is actually wearing a bag with eye-slits.

Just when you thought it was safe to back to camp! Friday The 13th had already made a box-office record when it was released in 1980. It was all anybody could ever talk about. Paramount had a huge hit and immediately started on the sequel. Friday The 13th Part 2 offers even more terror and screams as its predecessor did. But this sequel offers all Friday fans a real treat: JASON VOORHEES taking over as the killer.
Two months after dealing with the horror she experienced at Camp Crystal Lake, ALICE (Adrienne King reprising her role) has returned to the town to conquer her fear of what happened that Friday The 13th. While taking a nap, she reminisces the terrifying ordeal until it startles her out of her sleep. She goes into the kitchen and opens the fridge. What she finds in the fridge is MRS. VOORHEES' rotting decapitated head. She backs up into a large figure. The large figure turns out to be... JASON VOORHEES. He grabs ALICE and stabs her through the temple with an icepick. Jason doesn't appear to look like we all know him to look like. He is not wearing the hockey mask. In this one, he wears a burlap sack with a hole cut out for his left eye.
Five years pass after ALICE's untimely death. PAUL HOLT (played by JOHN FURY) is opening a camp that is located directly across from CRYSTAL LAKE. He hires a large amount of counselors and they include JEFF, SANDRA, TERI, VICKY, SCOTT, and MARK. PAUL also hires his girlfriend GINNY (played by AMY STEEL) as the assistant manager. That night, PAUL gathers all the counselors around a campfire and tells them the legend of JASON and his mother. PAUL mentions that JASON's body was never recovered from the lake after he drowned and that he saw ALICE kill his mother that night, five years back.
