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

Format: DVD
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

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?

Sean S. Cunningham.. -Now; -director; -Steve Miner.. -Doe's

Ho don't think straight threw out this movie. -This is a
good movie.. -And make's a lot of sense as why campper's

If you fallowed the movie rule's of; -Scream.. -1996..
That one directed by; -Wes Craven.. -Ho cerntainly nailed
lot of horror movie's, -and; -sequel's.. -At that time..
Wes did a perfect job of it.. -But; -Miner is a greater
example for this slasher series.. -Miner is not like
Sean S. Cunnignham.. -But he doe's a lot better job
then his predessor.. -Did.. -With the original.. -I've
seen; -"Halloween II.." -1981.. -That was a better
sequel..
I see why these movie's hail by comparison..! -The
movie begin's with Alice dreaming..? -Being killed off
by yet another prowler..! -Which set's up five years..?
As the prowler returns two his original stalking grounds
of another camp in Crsytal Lake.. -We can't assume that
it is Jason stalking and it is.. -Never mind..! -Jason
is the stalker.. -Not his mother this time..! -She was
beheaded at the end of Part 1..! -That's why little
old Jason came out of the lake and avenge her death..?
By killing off the surving staffer..! -Alice; -Played by
Adreinne King.. -I'm glad two see her just die..? -Becuase
she don't seem two just want the role so bad..! -And glad
that it is over with..! -I love; -Amy Steel's; -work in

Many people don't really count this as a good Jason movie, but I find it to be the best one.
He may not have the "famous" hockey mask. No, instead he uses a pillow sack (or something like that), he doesn't get the mask until the next chapter (part 3). This film is quite similar to the first, but it isn't as boring and slow. It gets pretty straight to the deaths. The film starts us off with the girl who survived from the first film, and we see Jason getting her own back on her, for killing his mum. I think that can be quite a creepy scene, when we see Jason's mom's head in the fridge. Then the film heads five years later, and a set of new kids are heading to Crystal lake. Once the first teenage dies, it just starts to get freaky and scary.
The film probably does have a bit more nudity in it, but still now much. As we do get on the first film, there is quite a chilling chase sequence within the last 10 minutes of the film, with Jason chasing a teenage girl (of course). The chase stretches out quite a bit and can become quite scary. Until we come to the end, and we get quite a jumpy, freaky twist at the end., like we do in the first film's end.
So, in my opinion, the best Jason film. Other good Jason titles are:
Part 4
Part 6
Part 8
