Product Description

It's five years later and a new group of teenaged camp counselors arrives on the scene and finds itself menaced by an unseen killer.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 the DVD edition.

Friday the 13th 2 looks really good on blu-ray, standing miles above the dvd release and also better than the Friday the 13th blu-ray. It's not perfect, some grain exists but given the age and source this is understandable. The image is sharp and clear with good detail. The night scenes hold up well too.

This is the R rated version, so no new gore has been reinstated. Which, as is suggested in the extras, may not even exist any more. Don't hold your breath for a better edition of this film being released. Paramount doesn't seem to care a great deal for this series of films, which is a shame, you can only think that is someone like New Line had the rights to these films there would be better editions. Never the less, Paramount has done a good job with the picture quality at least.

The extras are ports of the dvd edition. Brief and not too interesting. Worth upgrading if you have the dvd. The film has never looked better.

Format: DVD
After the events at Crystal Lake the camp is closed and the following year at a neighbouring camp more councillors arrive and another mysterious killer stalks and kills them.

Rapidly arriving 1st sequel made to capitalise on the apparent hunger for Friday slashers. Although no where near as good as its predecessor this is still a fine easy to enjoy slasher horror. Starting with a long flashback to the 1st film (10mins before we even see the opening credits) and culmination of Alice, we then move onto the new set of young councillors at the (very convenient) next door camp and the killings begin again. The actually awkward crowbarring in of Jason (we get no reason why he's still alive, has he just been hiding away for 20-odd years) comes over fairly seamlessly in actual fact. The rest of the story is basically a standard slasher, stalker plot, however the film is very suspenseful at times and there are some very good shock/jump sequences, particularly the opening 10mins with Alice form the previous film and the climax is a very aspect of the picture and then tension is heightened throughout it. Pacing is great, performances are surprisingly decent and the director Miner keeps everything moving along very well, gore scenes aren't as good as Friday 1 but certainly don't detract from anything in the pic.

Apart from the leap of accepting Jason being alive, this is a very good, and possibly one of the best sequels in the series, enjoyable, fast moving, and even quite scary at times, for the quick turn around in making this, it is a much better movie than could've been expected. The DPP weren't as happy with it obviously as it joined the first film on the Section 3 nasty list, fools.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jason Myers on 24 Sept. 2002
Format: DVD
The time between myself viewing the first and the second part was about 5 years, but the continuation works very well in Part 2. Jason makes a much better serial killer than his mother (even if he does have a pillow case over his head). The film has a great way of being gory and making the viewers jump, and what you think is predictable sometimes works out differently. I watched this film twice in a week and thouroughly enjoyed it more the second time around and I gave it a better rating than 'Friday the 13th'. It is one of the few sequels which may, actually, be better than the original. So, if you didn't really enjoy the first part, watch Part 2 and I'm certain you will want to watch the rest!

As a fan of friday the 13th and jason - part 2 is my fav in the series, it has intense moments which make jason quite eerie, the now debated 'bag look' really sits well and adds to the atmosphere of the film, set in 1981 the film looks a quality peice the steady cam moves the camera angles and the down and dirty feel is something that later films loose in order to just get jason on screen and slaughter as many people as possible, (which is okay) but here there is alot of getting to know the characters and the plot isnt as thin as one would think being the sequel, amy steel's character looks deeper into the myth of jason and has the notion that jason (although supposed drowned years before) just might be something real,
agaisnt all odds this film is right up there with the original, the look of jason is still in my opinion excatly what you would excpect rough long hair beard..the deformed head and teeth is the best, even his clothes the checked shirt and overalls work..
its a real shame that the film makers were to abandon the look (and the quality) of jason in the rest of this series, but like most fans of the films it would be great if a commentary track from actors and director could be included aswell as a documentary behind the scenes, with an unrated verson with all the missing scenes,
for people looking to see classic horror from the golden age friday the 13th and friday the 13th part 2 are among the best out there!

Format: DVD
Although this isn't the first in the MASSIVE series of 'friday the 13th',it's the first big appearance of the hatchet wielding maniac JASON VORHEES (one of the best 80's slasher killers, along with FREDDY KRUEGER,MICHAEL MYERS and the king of the 70's, LEATHERFACE).Along with the blood stained machete,the other trademark for JASON is the hocky mask.The mask has got more and more beaten up as the films go on (JASON really seems to like it) untill he changes it for a more futuristic one in 'JASON X'.As you may or may not know he doesn't get it untill 'friday the 13th part3'and instead seems to wear a pillow case on his head(don't knock it 'till you try it)!His grossly deformed head means only one eye will open so he only cuts out one eye hole(either that or he just got bored while massacring his feather bed and could only be bothered to cut out one eye hole).Paired with some dungarees and a pitchfork you may be aprehensive but DON'T be,you'll grow to love the combination that has come to be affectionately known as BED HEAD.This is as good as sequels get so BUY IT!!!
