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

Better than the original film- but again, like the first movie, not enough gory scenes in the movie. Not enough graphic horror violence in the movie and not enough extreme violence in the movie. There wasn't enough blood in this movie for me.

This movie is better than original because we have the introduction of Jason. The first film was more about mystery and suspense with an unseen killer killing the counsellors. Part 2 is a disappointing sequel and like the first Friday the 13th movie, the studio is attempting to cash-in on the popularity of Halloween. Friday the 13th Part 2 is a disappointing follow-up to the first film. This movie series attempted to imitate the success of Halloween and failed miserably.

The score sounds similar to the music in Psycho.

If you want gore, skip this movie.

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

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.

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?

There's not much that can be said about this film. After the unbelievable success of the first film, they decided to make another one. Unfortunately, the end result is a hastily put together film that speeds along without the notion to make a plot to go along with the Jason's murder spree. As a matter of fact, someone is killed in the first few minutes of the film! It's no wonder why Fangora magazine voted it the worst horror film of 1981.
One fact of interest would be that Jason wears a flannel shirt, jeans, and boots in this film. Of course, Jason also wears a flower sack over his head, so it's not like he would be inconspicuously blending in with the crowd.
The film also has Walt Gorney reprise his role as Crazy Ralph, and he does in this film exactly what he did in the last one. He even says his world famous line, "You're all doomed! (TM)".
There's not much that CAN be said about the movie as a whole. The plot, though, is basically set a few years after the first film. Jason Voorhees is the subject of conversation among the camp counselors as they prepare for the children to arrive. After taking vengeance against his mother's killer, Jason comes back to defend his territory.
There's not much else to describe as far as this movie goes. It simply only exists because the first one was so popular. Friday the 13th part 2 is something only die-hard fans would enjoy. If you're merely a casual fan, try the next installment instead. It's far better.
